Only You Atocha, Madrid
Amanda Wakeley black cashmere sweater
Saint Laurent black velvet thigh high boots / similar
Last weekend we took a quick trip to Madrid. We flew out on Friday evening and within 30 minutes of landing at Barajas we were settling in to the gorgeous, and brand new Only You Atocha hotel. The hotel has just opened (literally 24 hours before we arrived…) and with it’s vintage inspired, Shoreditch-esque design it was the perfect super cool base for the weekend. The wonderful, friendly ladies at the front desk checked us in, whilst we ogled the artwork, neon signs and piles of covetable books, and we were whisked up to our gorgeous suite – with views over the city and a lightbulb mirror for filmstar moments whilst getting ready. It was time for a super quick change so I threw on this heavenly cashmere sweater, slung it off one shoulder and belted it in at the waist. These super soft velvet boots are a new addition to my collection of over the knees and I’m obsessed with the thigh high length – perfect for the winter months! There was time for a quick pre-dinner gin & tonic on the Seagrams terrace before meeting up with Carrie and Russell for a late dinner and drinks. The perfect start to a glorious weekend!
