Soft as lace

Hello guys! As I mentioned in the previous post, the weather here in Lisbon as been far too depressing for this so-called spring, so it’s not always easy to decide what to wear.
I wore this outfit to go to university, meet some friends and work on my final project.
On boring days like this is when I get the most excited about what I’ll wear – I just hate the gloomy feeling of living the house unmotivated, so I might as well get some fun dressing!
I combined this soft, lightweight white dress with a cosy burgundy sweater, since I’m not prepared to leave the winter color behind yet. The sweater gave the look a relaxed feel, so it’s not like I’m dressing to a party.

The dress is from H&M, a lovely bargain I found on sale. I actually bought it to use it in a photo shoot, but it’s too pretty to leave it hanging on closet unworn! It’s super delicate, and although it’s part of the lingerie inspired trend, I feel really comfortable wearing it, it’s not like I’m in underwear. burgundy knit, sweater weather, lace dress, white lace, lingerie dress, statement necklace

Hope the weather starts becoming spring appropriate, I can’t wait to start wearing pastels and bright colors!

The perfect pair

ZARA | STRADIVARIUS | H&M | PRIMARK | SPRINGFIELD

Hello! I’ve been super busy this week, so this post had to wait until now, despite being prepared for ages. I’ve been wanting to get a new pair of black booties, simples ones to go with everything. I have one black pair already – as seen here – but I feel I could use another, since black boots are such a nice piece for the winter. Also, one can never have too many shoes. The chelsea model are my favorite right now, so casual and cool at the same time.

Hello! Tenho andado super ocupada, por isso este post, que já estava na gaveta há anos, só conseguiu ser publicado hoje. Desde o início da estação que estou a pensar comprar um novo par de botas pretas (principalmente porque as minhas deixam entrar água), e botins simples parecem-me uma boa opção para o dia-a-dia. Já tenho um par – podem vê-lo aqui – mas gostava de ter outro mais casual. Sem contar que sapatos (ainda por cima pretos!) nunca são demais! O modelo que me está a chamar mais a atenção é o chelsea (os dois primeiros pares), super simples e descontraído.

Primark Lookbook aw’13/14

Primark is a synonymous of fashion bargains, and those bargains are not necessarily related to sophistication or the “it” style. However, here I bring you a selection from their fall/winter lookbook, and the clothes are stunning! It’s just a matter of going shopping at the right time, searching the pieces that really can make a difference in your wardrobe.
Enjoy!

A Primark é sinónimo de coisas baratas, mas que nem sempre podem entrar num estilo sofisticado. Hoje trago-vos uma seleção do lookbook da marca para esta estação, que contraria a afirmação anterior, cheio de roupas e estilos apetecíveis! Na minha experiência de compras na Primark, é preciso uma boa dose de sorte combinada com preserverança para encontrar as peças-chave, e não ficarmos só pelo mais barato. Aproveito para lembrar que amanhã abre a loja nova em Lisboa, no Colombo! Para mim é um sítio bem mais acessível, mal posso esperar por lhe fazer uma visita hehe. Espero que gostem, e deixem um comentário sobre a vossa experiência com a marca! Continue reading

Hello guys! Another post sharing my fall expectations – honestly, can’t wait for the chilly days and cozy sweaters!
This is a collage I made for a contest, in which I made up to the final five! I’m glad the judges liked my choices for the next season, and hopefully you do too :)

Olá a todos! Mais um post com as minhas expectativas para a próxima estação – mal posso esperar que chegue o frio para começar a usar roupas aconchegantes!
Desta vez trago-vos uma colagem que fiz para o concurso do movimento Por um Portugal Mais Fashion, que ficou entre as 5 finalistas! Fiquei super contente porque vou ter a oportunidade de criar um look em conjunto com os fashion advisors do Cascaishopping para o evento In Fashion, que decorrerá 27 de setembro a 6 de outubro. O júri gostou do conjunto, falta agora saber a vossa opinião!plaid shirt, tartan shirt, primark, c&a, fall trend, fashion blogger, lisbon fashion blogger,

And these are my first two tartan shirts for this season! The first is a flannel one, from Primark, and the second is in a lighter cotton fabric, and has some studs on the pockets, from C&A. Love the colors and how the hardwear matches them! What about you?

E estas são as minhas novas aquisições para o outono, duas camisas em padrão tartan. A primeira é em flanela, da Primark, e a segunda é um pouco mais leve, da C&A. Gosto imenso das cores e dos pormenores metálicos, e vocês, também pensam em aderir a esta tendência?plaid shirt, tartan shirt, primark, c&a, fall trend, fashion blogger, lisbon fashion blogger,
