Walking on air

Walking on wedges actually. I never ever wear high heels (I don’t like getting my feet hurt, plus I’m already the tallest girl in the room most of the times even in flats), but these wooden sandals just felt right in the outfit.I bought them two years ago, yet they are basically new because it’s so rare for me to wear them. You’d expect them to be nice and comfortable since the wedge looks pretty stable; well, they are not! At least for me!

Anyways, still in the navy mood. I’m obsessed with this shirt from Blanco. It’s super loose and comfy, and has a triangle cut out in the back, which did not appear in any photograph apparently. Since spring has begun I’m also all into patterns, flowers especially. Too bad I packed everything floral for the weekend, ending up with almost no options to wear.

Actually, I wasn’t the subject of the shooting, but my friend Ana decided to take some pictures of me, so I could use them on my blog. They were forgotten ever since.

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!
