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
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!
Photography taken overlooking one of my favourite beaches ... São Rafael beach, Portugal.
One of my favourite colours has to be navy. A classic, sophisticated and smart shade that is more forgiving than black and I think suits pretty much everyone. A key colour for a nautical vibe and a trend that never goes out of season, here are some of my nautical ideas for whatever the weather:
Navy/white shorts & stripe tee
Stripe skirt & plain tee
Stripe espadrilles/white pumps
Navy blazer, stripe tee and chino's
Tailored navy trousers, stripe blouse and pumps
Stripe scarf or bag
As day two's adventures included the old town and Barcelona's marina (Port Vell) a soft, thin stripe tee, navy high waisted shorts and flats seemed appropriate! Plus the weather was amazing and I wanted to make the most of being able to wear shorts!
