Last week we were on a family holiday in Malaga, Spain. One of my favorite things to do on holiday is to walk around, looking at everything the city has to offer and sucking in the culture. Walking in the streets of Malaga is fascinating, you’ll definitely not be bored.
This city in the south of Spain has everything you wish for and then some. Cozy tapas bars, shopping, museums, beaches, playgrounds for kids, amazing coffee and of course sangria.
Walking in the streets of Malaga
In the streets of Malaga, you’ll find a variety of places to sit outside and enjoy the Spanish sun. Order some delicious tapas and wash it down with a nice glass of sangria, cava or a San Miguel beer. Also, you’ll see Spanish musicians on almost every corner, either playing a song or two on their guitar or playing a mini-concert with a full band.
If you’re into shopping, you’ll find everything from big chain stores to small boutiques in the small city center. And in Spain, there are lots of shops with cute clothes and shoes for the little ones in all price ranges. We bought baby Florian his first pair of shoes here and big brother Felix got some new summer clothes.
When you tire of walking around in the streets of Malaga, pop down to the harbor and go to the beach. It’s only a few minutes walk. On the way, you’ll pass through a nice park where there’s a playground for the kids and also a small bar if you get thirsty.
One of my favorite summer pieces is the maxi dress, especially on holiday. It’s dressy and casual at the same time, so it’s something you can throw on in the morning and wear out in the evening as well. And if you’re at a sunny holiday destination, it’s great to wear in the afternoon when you had enough sun. And let’s not forget those horrible marks cafe chairs can leave on your thighs when you sit down in a mini skirt to enjoy your lunch! Not a problem with a maxi dress.
This bright red piece is from H&M. I recently bought it, so it may still be available. I paired it with some dainty gold necklaces (one custom made and one from Chanel), tortoise sunglasses from Céline and black bag and shoes.
My beloved black Gucci Princetowns with embroidered rose appliqué was a natural part of this outfit. Not only did they go well with the dress, they are so incredibly comfy! Perfect holiday shoes. And if you take good care of them, you’ll have them for many seasons. And last but not least, probably my most used bags these days, the Balenciaga Small City in black with classic silver hardware. I usually carry this bag crossbody, but this time I tucked the long strap inside the bag and carried it by hand.
Oh, by the way
These pictures were taken around 5 pm, right after the siesta was finished, which usually lasts from 2 pm to 5 pm. I guess mainly the tourists are out and about at this quiet time of the day! But that’s life with little kids, you need to go out early for dinner. At least you can enjoy the quiet streets of Malaga, which is nice as well.
This was a quick wrap up of what this beautiful city has to offer when you’re walking in the streets of Malaga. A couple of other posts about our family holiday Malaga are coming up later on, so stay tuned!
PS. I apologise for the bad quality of the photos in this post. They are not this bad on my computer, but something happened during the upload to wordpress and after trying several times, I can’t figure out what. Hopefully I’ll be able to fix this later on.
