Light Blue Off-Sholder Top & an Evening in Old Town Faro

I am waaaay overdue for a new post. I know.

I have been beyond busy last few weeks preparing for a very long trip. I will share more on this in the coming posts. But for now, I promise I had a really good reason to be a little absent.

Today I share with you an outfit I wore on our one day visit to beautiful town of Faro. This gem of a town is located in the south of Portugal, in the Algarve region. It is much quieter than other Algarve region beach towns, but it very much worth a trip. One of the reasons it is not a top destination for vacation is because it’s beach is not in the town. It is about 15 ride from the town centre. The beach is called Praia da Faro and it’s a great beach. It’s long and vast, and on a windy day like we experienced, waives can be extremely strong. We didn’t swim that day but we certainly enjoyed the waived play while we sipped on some could beers on one of many beach patios.

The evening was spent walking the beautiful quaint streets of Old Town Faro. I will speak more about it in the next post. We also enjoyed some tasty food and ended up in a bar where all the locals hang out. We definitely tried to fit in, but not very successfully. It is a small town after all and locals know each other well.

One of the things that I recommend you visit if you chose to put this town on your bucket list is a Capela Dos Ossos, the bone chapel. The bones of the overcrowded cemeteries were stored in the small chapel that is located within the Carmo church complex. These bones were incorporated into the designs of the chapel, with skulls lining the walls – very strange and creepy.

As for my outfit, it’s the same top and pants I wore in the last post, but instead of sneakers I opted for stiletto ankle strap sandals instead for a night out on the town (yes I struggled on the cobblestone streets hahaha). In case you don't remember, I traveled very lightly to Portugal and brought only two pairs of pants, three tops and couple of dresses, hence the reason for repeat outfits, but I'm a strong believer that a change of shoes and a bag, can instantly change the appearance of an otherwise same outfit. What do you say?

Ciao!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

Over-sized Sleeves, Cozy Zara Sweater & Leather Outfit

Boots Aldo, skirt New Yorker, sweater Zara, bag Chanel, earrings vintage
Gotta love Zara! Gotta love this sweater! It was love at first sight (I know, I know I say that a lot). If you love it too, you should be able to still find it in the store. I love the oversized sleeves in particular. Anyone else crazy about this trend?  My brain is a little fried this week do I won't talk much. Too much to do, too little time before my trip to Boston this weekend. So I am leaving you with this quick post and hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfit.
Ciao!

Celebrating 30s is Not That Hard

As promised, I’m following up with one more outfit post this week. One thing I notice is that one of the  posts on my blog keeps getting the most view, even 3 years after it was posted. That was a post on turning 30, called Joining the 30s club. It seems to be a topic of interest for many women, most likely those about to turn 30. At the time it seemed like a bit deal for me too, but today, as I’ve turned 33, I’m very much comfortable with my age. 30s used to be a scary thought for me but now, I embrace them and feel more comfortable & happy in my skin then I ever have.
Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore for my birthday dinner (which was almost a month ago). I got this dress in a vintage store for a whapping $10. It was brand new. Oh how I love these fun cheap finds! The print reminded me of a cherry print form Dolce&Gabbana from a few seasons ago, but I also loved the style of the dress. It seems much shorter in these pictures then it actually is. For some reason my legs lo…
