At the top of Cartagena’s Castillo San Felipe de Barajas the breeze and the view will take your mind off the scorching sun, if only for a moment

 

Second day in Cartagena, easy whites again to beat the heat. A shirtdress is a surefire way to appear polished, chic and yet relaxed all at once.

The slightly longer back hem of the dress makes the overall shape more  interesting, mimicking, without caricature, the tails of men’s tailcoat.

Cinching the waist with a minimalistic belt added some structure and definition without taking away from the cleanness of the look, I found. Nothing was going to save my hair from the heat though.

Outside the walled city, at Convento La Popa de la Galera one will find the best bird’s eye view of  Cartagena
