Layer It All On Me

I had to get up at 9:00 am on a Saturday. Is that information relevant to this post? No. But I’m still mad about it and I wanted to vent.

Being that I had to get up and out of the house so early, might as well look cute for the day. Spring is around the corner. And layers work great around this time because early in the morning it’s way colder than at noon – yes, 9:00 am is early. Before anyone calls me a wimp because they wake up at something like 6:00 am, let me tell you, 1st, they’re right, 2nd, 6:00 am is not early, it’s ungodly.

It’s raining colour! Colour Pursuits in Pucci Rain Boots

Even though I hate gloomy weather, I have been anxiously waiting for an opportunity to use and photograph these rain boots and make a post about them. This was love at first sight. They are colourful. They are Pucci. They have a freaking high heel. Barbie would wear this. My inner child is giddy.

Rain boots, in Portuguese, means galochas. And these are fabulous. Hence, meet the Fabulochas:

Khaki, Classy & Quirky: Styling Statement Shoes

You can’t be a shoe enthusiast like me without having a few unconventional pairs on your wardrobe. Or more than a few. Spanning different decades and styles. Hey, it’s shoes, the more the merrier. We shan’t be shoe-shamed.

Anyway, funky shoes, specially if multi-coloured, can be hard to style. Particularly if you want to incorporate them in an office appropriate outfit, which I certainly do. I’ll be damned if I only get to wear these boots during the weekends. There’s always the all-black outfit option, that’s great to have and will always look chic, but I don’t want to keep defaulting to that. So this is my take on a classic yet unorthodox outfit, that I can actually be taken serious in.

Little Black Dress & a Coat to Impress

It seemed appropriate to post a little black dress outfit in anticipation of the upcoming Valentine’s Day, so here it is.

We were at the garden of the Monserrate Palace, in Sintra. A very romantic place. I wanted to wear something feminine, but it is still winter so I had to prevent the granted hypothermia I would have suffered with just a plain black dress, hence the big fur coat – and I’m wearing skin-coloured tights, by the way. It may not look like it in the photos, but I am. Bare-legged in January is, ironically, a version of Hell for me.

Checkered Trousers & a Chic Tote

Stop the freaking press, I’m wearing jogging pants.

Have I changed the way I dress? Nop, I was trekking through plants.

In comfortable slacks, but like I vowed: sneakers were still not allowed.

I’ll stop the rhymes and wait for the applause.

(I’m the cheesiest b*tch there ever was…)

Hidden Prints, Herringbone and High Boots

Just another winter Sunday. We went to Dear Breakfast again, and I would tell you that I’m always excited to go there because the food is great, which it is, but I would be lying. I’m excited ’cause of Mary. They serve Bloody Mary’s with brunch.

Anyway, it was an excuse to bust out these boho, non-office appropriate over-the-knee boots.

5 Style Essentials That Made My Life Easier

…because my life is so hard.

First world problems aside, I hope I’ve caught your attention with the overdramatic tittle, because theses pieces are actually something that you don’t see often listed in articles about building a minimalist/capsule/insert_basic_word_here wardrobe.

Fashion Faux Pas – Furla, you little monster!

I’m someone who prides herself in wearing everything they buy. Things don’t get forgotten. I have a lot of stuff – queue the sad violin my fiancé is playing after getting his space cut in half to make room for my 5 giant wardrobes I brought in when we moved in together.

And yet, my conscience is clear, because I’m not taking up space wastefully – I wear everything in my closet. Regularly.

Except for this.

‘Twas the Time for Tweed

Classic, grown up, subdued prints are major this fall. Plaid, houndstooth, animal prints – the classic neutral tones, not the neon, LMFAO Party Rock music video type colours – and tweed.

So I take a very adult, mature trend and decide to wear it like a school girl.
