DENIM OVER DENIM


 photo Maguenstreet1279jpg_effected.jpg

Here is another one of the outfits that I put together with Maguen 11:11.
I initially picked out oversized red/coral pants for the look, but being man size they didn't look quite good on me so I ended up combining the oversized polka dot shirt with some slim cut out jeans of mine.
Superga seemed like the perfect summer/casual touch to add to the look as well as this ASOS bag, and Mr. Boho just added that pop of color and fun.

Which combination do you like most? My winter version or this one?

Have an amazing day!

MAGUEN 11:11


 photo Maguenstreet1188jpg_effected_zpse7e878c8.jpg

 A few weeks ago, I teamed up with Maguen 11:11 to pick out a few of my favorite items and create different outfits.
I dare to say most girls love stealing their dads, brothers or boyfriends clothes wether it is to sleep, to achieve that oversized look, or because.. what the heck, it looks good on us too!
As you may already know, Maguen 11:11 is a menswear store but I fell in love with some pieces and made them look good on me.
Here is one of the looks I put together.
What do you think?
Hope you like the result!
As if having an afternoon putting together fun outfits wasn't enough, of course, because otherwise I wouldn't be me, I ended the afternoon having brunch in my dear Murillo cafe.
Perfect ending.

ROLL

Otro lugar encantador en la misma plaza encantadora de las que ya les he hablado, Plaza de Comendadoras.
Justo en frente de Federal cafe, como ya saben, de mis locales favoritos se encuentra Roll.
En Roll podemos encontrar un delicioso brunch fusión de ingles/americano los domingo y es el local perfecto para tomar desayuno durante la semana. Hacen también muchos eventos y noches divertidas. Definitivamente un stop obligatorio y otro de los favoritos en mi lista.

WANDERING AROUND EUROPE


The name Drifting Nomad doesn't come in vain. 
Aside from being born an ocean away from where I currently live, from having attended 14 different schools  in various different cities throughout my life, it is inevitable that drifting, wondering and exploring is a constant and forever a part of a my life.
I've been living in Europe for the past 11  years and have been able to travel, get lost, learn and absorb various and diverse cultures.
If I had to pick three of my favorite destinations -with the risk of sounding cliche and cheesy - (and probably because I still have a lot to explore, get to know and learn) they would most definitely be Paris, London and a tie between Barcelona and Amsterdam.

BLUE LOAFERS

I don't know why as I edited these pictures the Inspector Gadget song got to my head and stayed for repeat throughout the whole process. Maybe it's the Zero UV round sunnies or the long trench coat, maybe its the mix of both but something clicked and made me see myself as a detective...
As you read this, I am on my way to visit my best friend in Porto, Portugal.
Remember my last post there this summer?
I can't wait to come back and show you more adventures and new discoveries.
Have an amazing weekend!

THE PLACE

 photo IMG_0066jpg_effected_zps6b41238d.jpg

Sin lugar a duda, Malasaña es de las zonas con mas rollo, buen gusto e interminables lugares por conocer. The Place queda en una callesita que parece sacada de un cuento, definitivamente no parece que estas en Madrid, la verdad, no sabría explicar donde siento que estoy, rodeada de colores y tienditas. Pero ahi, entre colores, gente y tiendas curiosas esta The Place. No hay mas que ver las fotos para ver lo original y bonito que es. Lugar perfecto para tomarse un cafe, sentarse a escribir, desayunar, o como mi nuevo amigo, a dibujar.

DUBAI: AHMED & MALAAK'S WEDDING


 photo IMG_1827JPG_effected_zps8dc7d56e.jpg

As some of you might have noticed, I was away for almost all of January. Aside from being very busy I had the pleasure of visiting Dubai again & this time for a wonderful reason: two of my best friends got married.
I met Malaak in school here in Madrid. As we both moved and changed paths we didn't see each other for a very long time until she created La Tienda (remember this post?) and contacted me to help her out. Ever since then we have been closer than ever and I have gone twice to see her in Dubai, a city I have fallen in love with and I am now considering moving to.
Being in one, if not, the most important days of both their life's has meant so much to me. The ceremony was held in the beautifully decorated garden of the Kempinski Hotel in Palm Jumeirah where we stayed for a couple of nights. Everything looked and felt magical. Malaak herself being an interior designer and event planner made sure every detail was perfect.
Seeing and perceiving the differences in cultures and tradition is breath taking and incredibly enriching. I have not only fallen in love with Dubai, but also with the people, the culture, the religion, the variety and opportunities it holds... and this is only a small part of what I can share.

Thank you for teaching me so much and for being a part of my life.

CARLOTA MOREAU



 photo CARLOTA-DRIFTINGNOMAD23_zps07f59589.jpg

Carlota dreams of traveling the world. She recently came back from Mexico where she bought both pants shown in the pictures. Carlota and I both attended the American School of madrid and took the bus together everyday where she'd make me laugh with his sudden occurrences and stories. She is currently studying law in UC3M
She is responsible, organized and a punctual freak. 
In Madrid, she loves to go for drinks at Copa de Balón, Hoyo 19 and Whitby. She enjoys eating at La Tulipe, Wagaboo, Moonsun and Si Señor.
Carlota's one characteristic is persistency, she doesn't stop until she gets what she wants.
One of her favorite quotes says: "In order to be irreplaceable, one must be different." - COCO CHANEL
