One Day in Salamanca

shop the post

Today, Tor and I head back to Europe but I am still reflecting on our last trip abroad last month. After we returned to Spain from Austria and Germany, we had only one day at our apartment in Cáceres before we were transported to Salamanca for my husband's filming schedule. I was anxious to see more of Spain, so I went with him.

Marc Fisher boots c/o, Amanda Uprichard coat (old, similar here and here), J Brand jeans, Jigsaw sweater (old, similar here), Gucci bag, Pom pom hat

Tor had made several visits to Salamanca for filming, so he was already extremely familiar with the city. He already knew which spots he wanted to take me to and which restaurants to dine at. Salamanca is a gorgeous city. There are three major cathedrals in a close radius, making the skyline quite epic from wherever you are.

Despite how cold it was during the day, I still found so much to explore in Salamanca. I love over the knee boots, and these boots by Marc Fisher made being on my feet all day on cobblestone streets very comfortable. They are also pointed-toe, which is one of my favorite features on shoes.

After multiple courses of Spanish tapas and a nonstop flowing of Spanish wine, it was time to say goodnight to Salamanca. Although our trip there was short, I have a feeling we will be back again someday! Photos by Torrance Coombs.

    Loved this post, like all of your others! Just discovered your blog, and am wondering: what does c/o mean next to the links for clothes/accessories? Sorry if this is a silly question, haha! x

    • The A List

      Hi Aurélie! Welcome to The A List! “C/o” means “courtesy of”, meaning the item was gifted.
      xoxo,
