Trend Alert: Tropical Prints

tropical prints

Is there anything more summery than tropical prints? I’m talking George Clooney, circa 2011, in the movie The Descendants. I’ve always had a secret crush on prints like this. But their connotations were a bit negative. Now, everyone is wearing and talking about them. What constitutes a tropical print, you might ask. Palm trees, sure. Birds. Flowers. But also color schemes. The green, baby blue, orange, yellow, all transport us to...

And everyone starts to freak out a bit. Ever since the new year burst, a lot of my friends started looking for the perfect outfit. And so did I. In theory, I have 3 weddings this year.

Dress Two Impress This Spring

dress two impress

When I decided to take a break from blogging, I cocooned into a research mode. It was accidental but I found inspiration in my favorite blogs, websites, newsletters and Pinterest. To cut a long story short, I’m going to start changing things around here and trying out different layouts and posts. Things were getting a bit stiff and, again, my creativity needed a break. I’m starting to share these sorts of...

Got That Sunshine In My Yellow Dress

yellow dress

Whenever the weather starts to get better, I feel like the ultimate cliché. I start to wear bright and bold colors, pastels and white/cream. It’s the best way to acknowledge that spring is here and the cold, harsh days are behind. After experimenting with this trend here, I immediately became a fan. It’s such a great way to transition dresses into spring. Especially when you feel like you resemble a...

Wearing Heels For Tea and a Chocolate Croissant

Wearing Heels

A few weeks back, my husband woke up and said he wanted to treat me to breakfast. It was early in the morning, we both got dressed quickly (I wore this outfit the previous day) and off we went. I normally stick to granola and yogurt, oatmeal or some toasted bread, but we were in a mood for chocolate croissant. A danger early in the day but hey, I haven’t...

All Black and a Vintage Looking Coat

This was the first outing of this vintage looking coat. You might’ve already seen it here, here and here. It’s been on rotation lately and not for it’s warm qualities but because it’s such a great looking piece. The structure of the coat is amazing as is the pattern and color combination. These were taken on a very sunny day in SoHo. Me and M went out for lunch and...

The Case For Wearing His or Hers Clothes

case for wearing his or hers clothes

I’ve been a long time advocate of wearing my husband’s clothes. Ever since we started dating, I adored some of his clothes. But in the beginning, I was too shy to ask. It wasn’t until we moved to Dubai, almost 2 years into the relationship, where I first borrowed a shirt. A flannel shirt, to be exact. That shirt still haunts my dreams, I love it. Today’s fashion industry, is...

The Return of the High Waisted Chino Pants

High Waisted Chino Pants

Let’s talk about 2010. I went to one of my favorite stores back in Portugal. Browsed around and found an amazing, beautiful pair of high waisted chino pants. I tried them on with a bordeaux tank top and off I went to buy both pieces. At the time I was really into wearing my (first pair of) Keds, so that’s what I paired the ensemble with. I remember being mocked a...
