Swimsuit season ...  

Sadly coming to an end for us in the UK, but just starting for those of you around the world!   Beautiful sunsets, enjoying a good book on the beach, relaxing with family and feeling healthy - my favourite.

Swimsuits have definitely become more stylish over the last few years, plunge necklines, high cut, one shoulder and vibrant prints.  Figure flattering on all body shapes, and ideal with a pair of shorts/skirt.  I was always a bikini girl until the last few years - longing for that brown stomach!  But I loved the fun tiger print of this swimsuit and the more revealing cut.

Some like it cool ...

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

No place like home...
Home for me feels like Portugal...... I love the weather, culture, people, and especially the shopping!

An 8 day trip with my sister was all about relaxing, catching up with my friends and just enjoying the sunshine.  I couldn't resist taking some photo's though.....

A combined culotte jumpsuit with super fine strap detail, a simple pair of black sandals and added accessories ... ready for dinner!  Accessories included the fresh white Parfois clutch, black leather Massimo Dutti watch and a beautiful feather hair wrap!  I have been hunting for a hair wrap for ages, and I found this beauty on a braid stall in the old town in Albufeira!
