Spain Travel Diaries ~ Maxi Dresses in Calpe

Belle & Bunty London for Free People Spain Muralla Roja Fashion bloggers

Instagram: It’s a beautiful thing. We’ve made friends, grown a business and use it daily for inspiration. Remember when you used to go to the library for research? Nah us neither.

As per usual we were scrolling through our fave social media app, 3 hours later and down the rabbit hole {you know it don’t you} we stumbled upon heaven. Well if you are partial to pink like us. This building caught our eye immediately, you’ll see why once you start scrolling through the photos below.

We just knew we had to go. Luckily for us one of our favourite brands Free People, wanted us to go to. So we packed up pieces from their Endless Summer collection {perfect name, for the perfect setting} and planes, trains and automobiles later we found our pink nirvana. Holy Sh!t, we weren’t disappointed.

Plus *COMPETITION KLAXON* read on for the chance to win £500 to spend at Free People.

As you can see from the images, La Muralla Roja is pretty epic and if you know us at all you can imagine the excitement at actually shooting there. Let’s just say there was ALOT of ooo-ing and ah-ing.

The graphic shapes, the greenery and palms, the sunshine and the PINKNESS.

It was built in the 70s {another tick} and actually has other sections of the building which are rust red, mint green and chalky blue but obviously we stuck to the pink. Obviously.

The maxi dresses we are wearing are from Free People’s Endless Summer collection, their most effortlessly ethereal styles for under the sun. They are 100% cotton, exclusive to their website and yep, we love ’em. Not only are they extremely easy to wear and mega comfortable but we think they make the perfect getaway partner. Roll them up in your case, shake them out and they’d be ready to go. No creases or irons needed.

Beach to Bar.

This soft mint kaftan and this greyed off navy maxi dress would be the perfect styles to take you from daytime, thrown over your bikini, to night dressed up with loads of jewellery and heels. We styled ours with 70s stacked heels but they’d look great with a flat slide or you know those espadrille sandals we are always banging on about?! Yes, those would work a treat. We love the fullness and volume of these dresses but if you want to draw them in at the waist then both of these would work well cinched in with a leather belt or silk sash. The Endless Summer collection also has a lot of cute mini dresses and unlike some other American brands that hit you with duty and tax charges when ordering from their website there are no hidden fee’s when shopping at  https://www.freepeople.com/uk/dresses/, plus they offer free and easy UK returns. Also as if they haven’t spoilt you enough, if you’re London based, there is also a Pop Up shop on the King’s Road with new collection stock every 6 weeks.


We’re not sure we’ll make it back anytime soon to La Muralla Roja { TBH there was a little Spanish lady who wasn’t that friendly working there} BUT a Free People London shop, count us in. See you there?
