In my article linen pastel pink dress and pompom straw tote, I shared with you one of my favourite spots in Costa del Sol, the pretty city of Nerja. Today I am taking you to Mijas old-town, perched on the hills of the Andalusian inland. I simply fell in love with the little white streets decorated with blue flowerpots. That day I was wearing an apricot wash dress with embroidered floral patterns from Princesse Paradoxe‘s Swiss brand. I love the A-line shape that strongly recalls Courrèges fashion identity back in the 60’s. Every time I am wearing this dress, I am feeling as if I am Twiggy! The sleeves/epaulettes build shoulder width to perfectly balance the silhouette while the deep cleavage brings the right amount of sexiness. The stiff yet light ottoman fabric is pleasant to wear during warm summer strolls. I paired this apricot wash dress with my Chanel ochre ballerinas to play with contrast while keeping the orange palette together. It’s all in the details ladies!
I planned to wear ballerinas (and not heels) because I already experienced Mijas and its steep alleys. But I have to warn you there: slick ballerina soles on cobblestones steep tracks can be slippery and I experienced it a few time. Next time I will wear sneakers or moccasins like the ones I am wearing in this article.
Since I bought my pompom straw bag, I bring it with me everywhere, from beach to city.
Recommendations: Have lunch or diner at Museo Vino Malaga winery on San Sebastian street. They have the best wines, olive oils and local food (Julian and I personally loved it). And for 1 euro, visit Casa Museo Municipal and discover the artisanal professions, traditions and lifestyle of Mijas inhabitants from the past centuries.
