This is an illustration I made for the look I created for a contest – I’ll have pictures of the real mannequin coming up soon! Stay tunned ;)

It’s official: I need a new pair of black sneakers. 

I was never a fan of heels, so I get used to wear ballerinas or loafers; basically, any kind of flat shoes. But know I’m kind of fed up with those lady flats, and will begin my quest to find the perfect black sneakers. I actually have an old pair of black leather Nike’s, which I’ll probably get out of the closet soon, but still, I need something else. And by that I mean something new. I’m thinking about the New Balance ones, what do you think?

É oficial: preciso de um par de ténis pretos.

Nunca fui fã de saltos, então há anos que me refugio nas sabrinas, loafers e todo o tipo de sapatos rasos. No entanto, este tipo de calçado mais clássico/feminino já me anda a cansar, e assim começa uma nova aventura em busca dos ténis perfeitos. Eu tenho um par velhinho da Nike, em pele preta, que vai voltar a sair do armário, mas mesmo assim preciso de outro. Algo novo, se é que me entendem. Por agora, o modelo que chama mais por mim é o da New Balance. Que vos parece? Deixem a vossa opinião nos comentários!

Look du Jour: grown up expectations

outfit, job interview, business casual, jewelry, rhinestone necklace, statement, style and expect, sophisticated

It’s been a while since my last outfit post right?

So this is what I ended up wearing to the job interview. A bit more sober than what I had imagined before (see previous post), but still with the same type of clothing. I found it would be nice to combine a plain grey shirt with that statement necklace, to stay casual yet sophisticated. What do you think? Tell me what you would dress for this occasion!

Este foi o conjunto que decidi usar para a entrevista! Um pouco mais sóbrio do que tinha inicialmente pensado (ver post anterior), mas com o mesmo tipo de peças. Achei interessante combinar uma tshirt básica com o colar mais chamativo, num look descontraído mas ainda assim algo sofisticado. O que acham do resultado?

Bits & Pieces of my last week at Portimão (Allgarve). I can never get enough of holidays at the beach. The only downside to it is that I get to lazy to blog…
