Well, I think I’ve managed to eek out my summer holiday to Nerja rather well by posting my outfits along with photographs of the beach and of the architecture, but this is the penultimate one (one more about a cute nautical swimsuit and matching cover-up still to come and then I’ll write a summary of my holiday wardrobe by way of a packing post). From my previous Nerja posts, it’ll have been apparent that much like when I’m at home, a dress is my go-to option for most occasions, be that a work meeting, a meal out or a girls night in. From a practical point of view, a dress takes up less room in a suitcase than separates and is easy to accessorise- a piece or two of jewellery,a pair of shoes and bag is all that’s needed. I find a dress infinitely more comfortable too than say a skirt and top, especially in hot weather and especially when eating because there is no interference from one’s waistband.
This bright red maxi dress was an impulse buy shortly before I went away. It was on display, in the sale and in my size and I knew it would be perfect for dinner in Nerja. I love the flattering folds. I added flat silver sandals and didn’t add any jewellery because I forgot to!

Yet another gorgeous outfit! You have absolutely rocked your holiday wardrobe! I also wear dresses for the evening when I am on holiday as it is too hot for anything else. I hate forgetting to put jewellery on – I only feel half dressed!xxx
Ah, thank you so much Bee. Yes, I felt naked without my jewellery!!!! xxxx
I think you've created such a wonderful holiday wardrobe and set the bar high. Oh, and it's your fault, we've just booked our flights to go back to Nerja in a couple of weeks… I'm going to have to copy you and get my husband to take some outfit photos of me on the Balcon! xx
Oooooh, how exciting!!! Thank you for the lovely compliment. I would love to see your outfits at the Balcon. It's the perfect back drop! xxxxxxx
I adore that red dress! It is just the sort of thing I would love to wear but never find! How lucky you got it in the sale 🙂 I also love Nerja – it's close to where my mum and dad live in Fuengirola and we often take trips there. Beautiful! BTW, such a beauty dress, didn't need jewellery! 🙂 xx
Lady in red looking gorgeous x
I love this red dress… simple, yet so eye catching. I've really enjoyed your holiday vicariously. The scenery and the clothes have been amazing! You'll have to go somewhere equally photogenic next year! xx
