Even though I have been in Granada for a year and a half, I find that I’m always discovering new things. Several weeks ago was the perfect example of that. I had never been to Granada’s Atarfe despite living only a short bus or car ride away. It’s a small town close to I have been working with a new photographer named Miguel and he has a friend who just opened her own boutique called La Boutique de Lulú. He thought connecting the two of us would be a good idea. I always love to support small and local businesses, so I was down.
These looks were created from La Boutique de Lulú. She has a good selection of clothing and accessories in her shop. I was immediately drawn to the blue dress. I paired it with this vest and added the purse. We grabbed a handful of dresses and accessories, and headed to shoot some photos before the sunset.
On the drive up to the Ermita de los Tres Juanes, we found this cool rock formation. I love finding unique little bits of art like this.
A blanket scarf in the winter is a must. Did you know that it still gets cold in Southern Spain? Perhaps it’s not as cold as say the North or England right now. However a good coat is a very necessary investment. She has quite the selection of winter coats. This grey one was super comfortable.
A little black dress
I find that I can never have too many black dresses. This one was perfect and went really well with the blanket scarf.
Where were we?
La Boutique de Lulú is not far from La Ermita de los Tres Juanes. An Ermita is basically just a church-like building on top of a hill. It was built in 1941 but never used for religious purposes. It now serves as sort of a science museum displaying different fossils. You can read more about it here.

This was such a fun collaboration! Thank you to Lucia for letting me play dress up in her dresses, coats and accessories!
What sorts of dresses do you look for in the winter?
