One of my favourite cities to explore.... romantic, magical and the perfect Christmas getaway!
Wrapped up in my fur coat, and with a few cafe stops the many arrondissements of the city were explored. As true tourists we visited Paris's main attractions, watched a Paris Saint Germain football match at the Parc des Princes stadium and ate too many pain au chocolats! But my favourite has to be the beautiful French gothic architecture, particularly at the Notre Dame.
The last 2 days of the trip were even more special... Disneyland! A world totally transformed into Christmas... the parade, fireworks, Mickey's Magical Christmas Lights, boutique shops and the characters costumes.
Houndstooth, plaid, tweed, tartan, prince of wales check, I love a smart checked pattern. A tailored blazer or skirt with minamilistic pieces provide perfect layers for Autumn/Winter.
Mixed textiles... a lace long sleeved top, frill houndstooth dress and patent shoes were my "back to school" inspiration. A little more sophisticated with an improvised Chanel hair bow, even the smallest of details can spice up your look!
One city I have always wanted to visit, and I already want to go
back! Trams, hilly, cobbled streets, old pastel-coloured buildings.
A beautiful Portuguese city in 30'c temperatures in October, I spent 3 days
Easy to travel around either on the metro, by tram or by foot, there
were so many places of interest. Praça do Comércio, Rossio Square,
Lisbon Zoo, Lisbon Oceanarium, Elevador da Glória were just some of my
Staying in the heart of the Lisbon, Bairro Alto Suites was perfect for our
stay. A recently renovated XV century building, with patisserie's nearby
and within walking distance to everything.
35'c + ... it has been a scorcher here the last few weeks! Classic topknot, glowing skin, and blondie hair... I have now been living here for 5 months can you believe?!
Feeling like a true Portuguese, I purchased this beautiful boutique beach cover-up. Tassels, colourful pom poms and frilly details....easy peasy to throw on for the beach. With so many boutiques around the Algarve I love to venture out of normal buying trends. As much as I love my brands I always like to be different and support smaller shops and cultures.
More of the Portuguese trends coming soon with a swimwear blog upcoming... x
