Outfits | Parisienne much?

Adoptei o meu lado mais parisiense neste meu novo conjunto,
cuja estrela é o vestido da Mango às bolinhas,  um achado de apenas 7,99€ nos saldos!

Espero que gostem de ver todas as fotos!

polka dots dress: Mango | loafers and raffia round bag: Pull&Bear 
red beanie: Bershka | moon colar: c/o Happiness Boutique | black watch: Cluse c/o relógios.pt

I felt all parisienne in this outfit,
featuring my lovely polka dots dress from Mango that I got on sale for only 7,99€!
Sadly, I'll have to sell it, because it's way too tight in my breast area!
I thought I could make it work, nonetheless, but boy, was I wrong...my ladies didn't like the hug!

It was lovely to go back to photographing, it's always a lot of fun,
even when I do it alone!

Hope you enjoy the photographs! 
I especially liked the ones with the peak-a-booing sun!

Outfits | Don't take yourself too seriously!

Entre flores, borboletas e roupa descapotável (ainda é Verão, portanto posso!),
hoje reflicto sobre perfeccionismo, anónimos maldosos e como não nos devemos levar demasiado a sério!

Juntem-se a mim!

embellished sandals: Blanco | moon necklace: c/o Happiness Boutique

If my almost 9 years of blogging taught me anything, that would be to LAUGH AT MYSELF!
Yep, you read correctly!
Having this blog, looking at my evolution through the years and receiving some nasty comments in the way,
made me stop taking myself so seriously, adopting a chill and smile attitude!
There's no need to torment ourselves into perfection...

Hope you enjoy today's pictures, featuring my last Summer outfit!

Outfits | Your flaws are what makes you unique!

Um brinde (com um Frapuccino do Starbucks!) aos nossos defeitos, 
que fazem de nós quem somos!

Espero que gostem das fotografias que tirei em Braga, a minha cidade-natal!

white A line dress: Mango | red sandals: c/o Caminata Calçados
nude watch and bracelet: c/o Paul Hewitt | red sunglasses and scarf: Bershka
red bag: from an indian market (Cristina's gift)

It may sound cliché, but it's sooo true!
Too often are we obsessed over tiny little nothings
when we should appreciate all the awesomeness about our bodies, our minds, our intelect!
I choose to see my glass (or my Starbucks' Frappuccino!) half full!

What about you?

Have a lovely week, everyone!

Outfits & Opinion | Fitting in is overrated!

Seja na sociedade, naquilo que os outros dizem ou nas calças que vestimos,
"encaixar" está muito sobrevalorizado!

Espero que gostem da reflexão e das fotos coloridas que por aí vêm!

orange top: c/o Zaful | pink palazzo pants: Bershka | purple earrings: Mango | star necklace: c/o Soufeel 

Society tells us we're supposed to blend, to avoid standing out,
"don't let them in, don't let them see"!
It would seen being different - out of the norm, I mean - is some sort of sin...
I think otherwise! I love unique, goofy, happy people who are not afraid to speak their minds!
I love myself, in all my weirdness, my stupid laugh, the way I sing and dance when I'm happy...
Even though I've tried, I never really believed in fitting in...

Actually, this concept of "fitting in" doesn't apply only to personalities...
it applies to a lot of "beauty" concepts as well...
It extends to the height and weight we're "supposed" to have, 
to the size of pants we're "supposed" to wear...
A bunch of non-sense, if you ask me!

I have to confess the idea behind this title and reflection
was the fact that for the 2846241th time I made a fool of myself putting these extra extra small pants on!
I did try to fit in for the last time! I did, but with a huuuge effort and the help of my boyfriend!
Ridiculous, I know...
They're waaaay too tight for me, they've always been, but I bought them nevertheless,
making the act of dressing them up - and down - literally! a pain!
They're gorgeous and all that, but I will stop this non-sense and either sell them or give them away!

Reflections aside, hope you enjoy today's colorful photos!
Have a lovely day, everyone!

Outfits | "We're all golden sunflowers inside"

No passado Domingo fiz uma rápida visita à minha cidade, Braga,
e a minha família desafiou-me a um passeio pelo Bom Jesus!
Como blogger que sou, obviamente que aproveitei as paisagens românticas para tirar umas fotos!
Espero que gostem:

sunflower mint dress: c/o Rosegal | wedges: Stradivarius
raffia bag and white sunglasses: Lefties | hat: H&M

Last Sunday I visited my family and we had a wonderful walk at Bom Jesus,
one the prettiest places at Braga, my city!
I thought this romantic garden was the perfect background for this lovely Rosegal sunflower dress!
(My mom and sis, on the other hand, found both the setting - and the dress - a bit too cheesy!)

Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures!

Outfits & Opinion | Seriously, stop sabotaging yourself...you are wonderful!

Esta é a mensagem que quero deixar a mim mesma 
e a todos vocês que me estão a ler e que têm o péssimo hábito de duvidar de vocês mesmos!

Leiam a minha reflexão sobre este tema depois das fotos!

white top: c/o C&A | polka dots maxi skirt: c/o Rosegal | black raffia bag: Pull&Bear
wedges: Stradivarius | sunglasses and earrings: Bershka | white watch: Cluse c/o relógios.pt

In case you've missed the memo, you are incredible and you're capable of a lot!
A lot of us spend too much time doubting ourselves and ignoring all the good things we can do!
I, for instance, am one of those people!
I can rationally say all my qualities and all the amazing things I can do...
but I often find myself thinking it's really no big deal and that I should be better!
I was programmed to be like this.
Hell, I was even rewarded to be like this, to always push for more and more, to be better and better...
But now I find myself only wanting to appreciate all the good things I already do...
but there are times when I can't...I just think how I should do more, be more...
Nonetheless, I'm a lot closer to my goal of loosen up than I was yesterday...
I just gotta keep doing my baby steps until I make it!

What about you? Do you struggle with the same insecurities?

Hope you enjoy the rest of the photographs!

Outfits | Pin-Up Girl

Nas novas fotos encarnei a "pin-up" que há em mim, e adorei o resultado!
Espero que também gostem!

pink ruffles skirt: Mango | polka dots navy blue top: c/o SheIn
saggitarius necklace: c/o Your Hamsá | white cat eye sunglasses: Lefties

For these new photos I channeled my inner Pin-Up and went for a cute and sexy style!
This is the kind of outfit that can cure any of those low self-esteem days:
I sure felt all vixen, celebrating my curves and my rolls (yep, I have them too!)

Hope you enjoy the photographs!

Outfits | Goodbye, Summer!

O meu último conjunto de praia do ano está aqui,
trazendo à ribalta uma das minhas descobertas favoritas dos saldos:
esta saia às bolinhas de ganga da Stradivarius!
Juntei-a a este top curtinho laranja da Zaful e a acessórios que já tenho há alguns anos,
para criar um conjunto divertido e colorido!

Espero que gostem de ver todas as fotografias!

orange crop top blouse: c/o Zaful | polka dots skirt and camel wedges: Stradivarius
striped hat: El Corte Inglés | white cat eye sunglasses: Lefties

Summer is quickly coming to an end, so these kind of days will soon become a mirage!
But that's okay! As much as I love summer, I'm totally an autumn child!
Hope you enjoy what's probably my last beach outfit of the year!
