After a few gloomy and depressing rainy days, the sun decided to show up around here. On the last days the temperature outside has been so warm and inviting that spending some hours enjoying the sun is the one thing to do. I went to this lovely park called Fabrica da Pólvora with a friend to take some pictures for our school projects, and ended up asking her to photograph me for the blog! She did a great job don’t you think?

Anyways, mixing patterns is my favorite trend to play with when it comes to deciding what to wear. Especially during spring and summer, flowers & stripes are my thing!style and expect, flowers, stripes, spring 2014, outfit, neon pink, neon skirt, flower printstyle and expect, flowers, stripes, spring 2014, outfit, neon pink, neon skirt, flower print

Look du Jour: sweet camouflage

nude dress hm, concious collection, camo jacket, springfield jacket, stradivarius leather sandals, rose gold bag

This was the first time I wore this jacket, although you may have seen it here on the blog before on my FNO Lisbon outfit. I’m really glad I bought it, a camo print will work perfectly as a fall staple, and still manage to incorporate it on my last summer looks. In this case, I loved the combination between the rough pattern/texture with the rose gold shades, creating delicacy with an edge.

Esta foi a primeira vez que usei este casaco, apesar de já o ter mostrado no post do FNO Lisboa. Foi mesmo uma boa compra, sei que vai ser um favorito do outono, mas mesmo assim ainda o consegui conjugar em diferentes looks nos últimos dias de verão. Neste caso, combinei-o com um vestido delicado e com folhos nos ombros  (que já não vestia há imenso tempo!), e gostei imenso de ver a combinação das diferentes texturas. Um bom equilíbrio entre o delicado e o arrojado.nude dress hm, concious collection, camo jacket, springfield jacket, stradivarius leather sandals, rose gold bag nude dress hm, concious collection, camo jacket, springfield jacket, stradivarius leather sandals, rose gold bag Continue reading

SAMSUNG CSC

…and denim. Almost a good title for a 4th of july post.SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSCLately I’ve been living in shorts, since it’s the only way I can survive those massive 40º degrees of the last few days. Today the sun is not shining, and it’s not that hot outside, so I paired them with a striped navy sweater – have you ever wandered about when people wear shorts and jackets, like is it hot on your legs and cold on your arms? Today is one of those days apparently. And I’ve been craving this outfit since I bought the sweater, I just love laid back outfits with stripes and denim.

Ultimamente tenho andado sempre de calções, já que é a única maneira para conseguir suportar aquela vaga de calor horrível! Hoje, pelo contrário, o sol decidiu não brilhar e consequentemente está bastante mais fresco, e em vez dos tops e camisas levíssimas do costume, optei por esta camisola às riscas. Já alguma vez se sentiram intrigados quando vêem alguém com calções curtos e casaco vestido na parte de cima? Do género, será que têm calor nas pernas e frio nos braços? Eu costumava ficar intrigada, mas pelos vistos hoje está temperatura para isso. E já que já tinha este outfit em mente desde que comprei a camisola decidi aproveitar.

Uma questão: para os leitores portugueses, vale a pena traduzir o post? Ou se for em inglês serve perfeitamente?

All your gold

gold-style-and-expect

Gold leaves on my necklace, gold pattern on my blouse, gold sequins on my skirt. This is all my gold, and this post also comes with soundtrackgold-style-and-expect gold-style-and-expect

This was the first time I photographed an outfit post alone, with my new camera. I’m using my smartphone as a remote control, that’s why I’m awkwardly holding it on my hand. This is the blouse I showed you on one of my last posts, and of course I could be cool and wear it with ripped shorts, on a going-to-beach look. But I went with all my gold instead.

Esta foi a primeira vez que fotografei um outfit sozinha, com a minha máquina nova – estava com algum medo dos resultados, mas não correu mal de todo! Usei o meu smartphone como remote control da câmara, por isso é que tenho esse estranho objeto na mão. A blusa é a que mostrei outro dia, no post A new take on the Aztecs, e claro que a podia ter combinado com uns shorts rasgados, naquela de ser cool, a caminho da praia. Mas não me apeteceu, e em vez disso preferi o dourado.gold-style-and-expectgold-style-and-expect
