Green Beachwear Plus Your Chance To Win…

Green embroidered beach dress and green cat eye sunglasses el Balcon de Europa

I’m back home from a wonderfully perfect nine day holiday with Ian in Calpe, Spain, but I still have more to write about the short holiday I had in Nerja with Poppy and Harry.

El Balcón de Europa is a large round balcony on a cliff  in Nerja which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. It has spectacular panoramic views of the Sierra Almijara mountains, the coast and stunning beaches, sandy coves and rocky outcrops. Until lunchtime, it’s really rather quite as these photographs will attest, however, it gets busier throughout the day. By evening it’s alive with throngs of people; natives and tourists alike. It has the most wonderful atmosphere: vibrant yet genteel. It feels safe, content and vital. Poppy and I headed there after breakfast to take these photographs. El Balcón de Europa is literally a five-second walk away from the hotel in which we stayed.

This beautiful embroidered beach dress is the Agadir, by sustainable brand Aspiga.  It’s green in both colour and ethos. Ethical trading underpins everything this brand does and I’m amassing a rather lovely collection of their holiday wear and sandals.

Green and gold work together beautifully, so my gold starfish sandals also by Aspiga are perfect.  They’re leather and the beads are glass, (not plastic, to reduce the impact on the environment), and are part of the Aspiga sustainable fashion collection. This collection supports local artisans which keeps their craft alive and helps maintain their livelihood.

The Perfect Pair

What is the perfect eyewear to go with this beautiful green embroidered dress? Well there’s a lot of detail on the top of this dress courtesy of the embroidery and the tassels, but despite that, it’s a casual dress, so the glasses need to be quite simple in shape. These sleek green cat eye sunnies fit the bill. Large enough not to be overwhelmed by the dress, but simple enough not to make it too “busy.”
