The Unnecessary Red Dress

We were meant to be packing light, the Boy did and then ended up carrying my excess baggage. Whoops. I used everything I packed though, which is my benchmark for successful packing. When I was packing there was only one item that I put in knowing in full that I didn't need and packed anyway. The Red Dress. The (unnecessary) Red Dress.

Originally this had been bought for a Christmas do, it's long and flowy and enabled me to wear thermal leggings underneath which was a definite benefit when the temperatures were dropping to -2ÂșC.

Oddly enough, I didn't need thermals in Morocco but the floaty quality meant it felt very light and airy while keeping me shielded from the harsh sun.

I had a vision of myself floating around Casablanca in this dress, but we never made it (next time!)

Big floppy hat, long red dress and it doesn't matter if you've only had cold showers for a week you feel a million dollars.

    1. Thank you! I definately felt more like a film star and less like the sweaty backpacker I was. I've got a post in the works about the blue city, it might take a while to publish though, I;m struggling to cut down the million and one photographs I took while I was there.

  3. Beautiful dress! I love long dresses like these during the summer because it does shield you in a way, and sometimes it feels so much better to have something loose like a skirt or dress than wearing shorts and sticking everywhere.
