What I wore exploring Jaén

exploring Jaén

Recently, I found myself exploring Jaén. Jaén is a city that is just about an hour North of me in Granada. These days, I do not have tons of money to travel to big, extravagant places. However that is okay as I live in Europe. There are so many neat places to see only a few hours from where I live. So exploring Jaén was one of those closeby but awesome trips.

The dress

As most of you all know, I’m the girl who is always wearing a dress. I love traveling in my dresses and wear them all year long. So when I was exploring Jaén with my friend Sharifa, I of course opted to wear a dress. I had found this grey dress at a shop in my neighbourhood in Granada called Humana. It looked perfect for a work setting or really just anything. I loved the buttons on the front too.

Humana is a non-profit and the money funds development projects in Africa, South America and Asia. The projects benefit education and other community needs. Basically, I always love it when I can support people doing good work. So I will happily shop at Humana and tell others to do so as well!

El Castillo de Santa Catalina

If you have not visited the castle atop the big hill in Jaén, you need to do so. It is absolutely breathtaking and the views from up there are amazing. In fact last week, I wrote all about it. You can read about it here.

Walking around town

The streets of Jaén are like most others in Southern Spain. I just love all the cobblestone and streets that wind up hills. In these photos, you can see my H&M peacoat. Upon moving to Spain, I of course could not pack every single thing. I have had to do shopping here and there for things like sweaters, shoes, basic tees and pants. However I made sure to bring this peacoat with me as I knew I would need it. And boy am I glad that I did.
