wear this there: ultramarinos pirulo madrid.
we're off to spain this week, to dine in madrid's charming take on the old school tavern and marketplace. ¡vamos!
you may have noticed i’ve got quite the hankering to visit spain again, and this time to a few places i’ve yet to conquer — mallorca for one, and madrid for another. so today we’re dining at the very charming ultramarinos pirulo, a new concept of the traditional tavern, and a tribute to the old school grocery stores of the capital city. it’s a cozy dining space to feel right at home and enjoy some of spain’s traditional gastronomy, including lots of fresh seafood, tinned fish, and spanish wines, as well as a carefully curated selection of gourmet grocery products — all for sale.
we’re going to blend in, but not too much, in a casual, layered ensemble perfect for brunch. i’m dressing you in the very on-trend oversized red striped button-down open over a slim white tank top, worn with my favorite cropped jeans, a fringed belt, and flat red sandals — ideal for walking the ancient streets of madrid. i’ve added a sweet sun hat, oversized sunnies, and an adorable straw tote bag, and at the neck, i’ve got a great toile print bandana and layered necklaces. before heading out, i recommend reading the shadow of the wind by carlos ruiz zafón. it takes place in barcelona in 1945 — a city slowly healing in the aftermath of the spanish civil war, where an antiquarian book dealer's son finds solace in a mysterious book and enters into the city’s darkest secrets — an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love.
