Outfits | Goofing around hydrangeas!

off shoulder black top, belt and chokers: Stradivarius | skinny jeans: Lefties 
pink trench coat: c/o Shein | pink bandana scarf: Bershka (similar here
black watch: c/o Daniel Wellington | black cat eye sunnies: PartyGlasses
(wearing Pour Moi solutions strapless bra in 30F underneath)

When I think I couldn't get any goofier...bang!, I prove myself wrong!
That's what happened while I was taking these pictures with Diogo, 
actually feeling extra shy, awkward and out of place,
but decided, nevertheless, that having a Carmen Miranda moment with hydrangeas would be fun!
If people who where curiously passing by didn't think I was weird before,
they sure did after this!
But, alas, I was never meant to be ordinary!

Hope you enjoy my off shoulder - and flower - action in the rest of the pictures!
Have a lovely week!

Outfits | Summer diva

blue blouse: Mango | denim A line skirt: Pull&Bear (similar here)
chokers and belt: Stradivarius (similar here | hat: Timeout Jeans PT
wood watch: c/o Jord | bracelet: local store | blue suede boots: ZARA (similar here)


Like Olaf would sing, summer is heeeere at last,
and, alas, it brought the sun by the hand!
I feel like spending the days strolling around, feeling the warmth in my cheeks...
and I just cannot wait to get my feet at the beach and head on holidays!
Meanwhile, I'll be enjoying these long days as much as I can,
while sporting fresher outfits, like this one!

The star of this outfit is, hands down, my new Timeout hat...
it makes me feel like a summer diva (does that even exist?!).

The other pieces, apart from the lower turquoise stoned choker, are no novelties here...
After all, I've been capsule wardrobing with them - and other 30 pieces - for quite some time now!

Hope you enjoy the rest of my summery pictures!

Have a lovely weekend!

Outfits | Achieving something on your own is one of the biggest pleasures there is!

denim jacket (with Stradivarius patches): c/o Abaday | lace crop top: H&M | pink jeans: Pimkie
blush crossbody bag: Michael Kors Selma mini messenger (similar here or here) | mirrored sunglasses: eBay
pink and navy watch: Daniel Wellington | chokers: Stradivarius (similar) | bracelets: Bershka
white and rose gold sneakers: Adidas Superstar (similar here and here)

The star of this relaxed outfit was my super cool new denim jacket from Abaday,
especially because of the Stradivarius patches I sew on it!
It took me a awful lot of time and half of the stitches were actually in my fingers...
but I felt quite proud at the end!

The chokers were second place, obviously, I love my new Stradivarius babies,
I've been quite addicted to this trend as of late!

All around, I felt quite cool in this simple outfit I wore in my beautiful home-town...
would you wear it too?

Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures! 
Wishing you an amaaazing week!

Outfits | Things are not (always) what they appear...

denim shirt and skinny jeans: c/o SheIn | navy and pink watch: Daniel Wellington
blush bag: Michael Kors Selma Mini messenger (similar here) | pink mirrored sunglasses: eBay  
choker: Primark | rings: c/o Romwe | bracelet: local store | grey and pink sneakers: New Balance c/o Spartoo
(wearing Comexim Sonia in 60HH underneath)

Hey hey!
How rad are these new photos I took the other day?
Looking at them, I'd say they were taken at California or Miami...
It so happens they were not, quite faaaar from it,
and it proves that images CAN be pretty deceiving,
and depressing over/desiring/being jealous of people's lives online is actually clueless...
the true life lies beyond the screen and might not be as bright, as glamorous, as sunny as we might think...
and that's okay!

Nevertheless, I felt pretty cool in this denim on denim outfit,
accessorized with pretty details to make it quirkier,
and my new amazing Daniel Wellington watch!

Would you wear it too?
Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures!

Kisses and enjoy the sun (if you happen to have it!)

Outfits | Guess what, I'll never blend in...and I don't mind...I've got a garden of my own somewhere...

black off the shoulder top: c/o Choies | denim A line skirt: Pull & Bear (similar here)
camel trench coat: c/o Abaday | choker and palmtree and cactus golden necklaces: Primark | rings: c/o Ingruccia
brown belt: Stradivarius | black bag: Pimkie (similar here) | camel boots: BT London c/o Spartoo

A couple of days ago I did something I should have done before:
explore the gorgeous gardens of "Palácio de Cristal" located veeery near of the my current work place,
but that I shamelessly failed to properly visit until now!
Lucky for me, the beauty was still there, waiting, resting... 
and I blended with the nature in order to get the perfect shot!
Aaaaah, I love photography and I wish I could do this every single day...
I even grab the attention of a gooorgeous little fella that decided to join my photoshoot...
but more on that on the upcoming pictures!

I felt like a bohemian princess in this, so light, so fresh, so meeee!
These kind of braids are the second "bad hair day" simple hairdos I've been adopting lately

Hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I do!

Have a lovely week, y'all!

Outfits | The world is full of beautiful things...you just have to look around!

striped beige and black shirt: Pimkie | beige coated jeans: Mango | denim shirt: c/o SheIn
blush bag: Michael Kors Selma Mini messenger (similar here) | rings: c/o Ingruccia
bandana scarf: Stradivarius | black sunglasses: RayBan Wayfarer | golden watch: Casio
black sneakers: All Stars Converse Ox leather c/o Spartoo
(wearing Comexim Irish Coffee in 65H underneath)

Let's pretend for a moment I'm not wearing these (awesome though!) Mango jeans,
but instead a pair of gorgeous shorts, and a cool beach bag rather than my beloved Selma...
Don't you just TOTALLY picture me in some Cali beach?!
Because I do, and I would love to be there!

Well, while the vacations are still far away, I'll eat ice-cream, wear my best casual clothes and work work work!

Kisses, everyone!

Outfits | Nádia Redshoes

t-shirt: c/o P&P | denim skirt: Pull&Bear (similar here) | bandana scarf: Bershka (similar here)
black sunglasses: RayBan Wayfarer | golden watch: Casio | black bag: Pimkie (similar here)
black sneakers: All Stars Converse Ox leather c/o Spartoo
(wearing Comexim Elena in 60HH underneath)

This is a typical case of blue jeans and white shirt...
This combo seams to work every. single. time. , proving that less is more, more than often.
I feel lighter now that I wear less clothes
- CAPSULE WARDROBE has it's perks! - 
hence my return to my happy jumps thingy!
I mean, it felt so incredibly good to spend the late afternoon near the beach, 
with my boy, enjoying the sun, the ocean, ice creams...
I felt happy as a kiddo, believe me!

I'll let the rest of the pictures do the talking!

In the meanwhile, I leave you with a recap of my May outfits I shared here,
wearing about 20 of my 33 capsule wardrobe pieces...
which one did you like best?

Have a loooovely Saturday!
