I’m transported back to Agadir for today’s post. I do miss the sunshine and the all inclusive buffet! Having to prepare my own salad and vegetables seems a bit of a bind in comparison…that’s if you’re lucky enough to find some in the shops! Tomatoes are particularly scarce at the moment; apparently poor weather in Spain and Morocco is to blame. Hmmm…there was certainly no shortage of salad in Morocco so what’s really going on? Could it be that B-word that nobody wants to mention?
Anyway, here I am in happier times, in a lovely retro style dress, with a belly full of tomatoes! This is my second dress from the Dawn O’Porter x Joanie Clothing range. I was so delighted with the Sunrise Psychedelic Print Midaxi Dress (see the post here) that I couldn’t resist buying this one when it went on sale. They do come up a quite big so I’m wearing a size 8 because a size 10 is too loose on the waist. This orange floral Print midaxi dress has more of a salmon pink tone than my other DOP x Joanie dress, which is a true orange. (The third collection has just dropped and it’s stunning!)
I joked on Instagram that I only packed orange outfits. Well, although there was a certain amount of planning and logic to that (we shared a case so I had to stick to a colour palette) it wasn’t until I unpacked that I realised just how far I’d taken the orange theme! Pete took one look and said “didn’t you pack ANY other colours?”…erm, it appears not! I have one other holiday outfit to share, which…you guessed it, is mostly orange! At least yesterday’s Style Not Age post featured a large helping of hot pink for some balance.
Apart from the trainers I travelled in (yes, they were orange!) I took three pairs of sandals with me: these, which are my most comfortable and go on every holiday, my pink satin wedges and gold toe post FitFlops. I made the mistake of walking around for an hour in the FitFlops trying to find a supermarket that sold soya milk. Not only did I not find any plant milk, but I ended up with red raw patches on my feet. After being in boots and trainers for months, my feet need time to get used to sandals and shoes again. I should have worn these white sandals instead. If I could find them again I’d buy half a dozen pairs!
