Plum and Navy

Beret: vintage | Dress: Zara | Jacket: Ebay | Necklace: Ebay | Tights & Socks: Calzedonia | Boots: Primark

If you live in the South of Portugal, you can never really expect a harsh Winter. There are no such things as dew-covered moss or degrees below zero. Winter in Algarve feels like Summer for the Northern Europeans. Instead, it has been sunny and windy with the occasional rain o'clock. And yes, this is my first outfit post in like... months? I'm too busy and too lazy but I promise I'll make an effort to balance my priorities and make the best out of my spare time. It hasn't been easy these days, you know.

About the oufit... Well, I know the boots look cheap (and they were... literally!) but they are practical, comfortable and BLACK. Black boots go everywhere! Also, the cashmere tights and socks contribute to that heavenly walking feeling - otherwise, my poor feet would feel every cobble stone I'd step in the street. The plum pleated dress looks very pretty paired with the navy jacket and the necklace adds a playful vibe over the preppy/retro thing.

That's all.

  8. HUH... THe boots look cheap? NO they fucking don't - até pq tenho umas iguaizinhas sem tirar nem pôr e são a coisainha mais quentinha e mais confortável para andar que já tive nos pés, e aguentam bem uma bela chuvada. The books look bloody expensive, as if they just came through a time travel from a victorian cobbler who made shoes and boots for royalty. THere.

  13. it's great not having a real winter isn't it? it doesn't snow in sydney and our winters never get to zero degrees (at least not where i live) which is perfect for me because i hate the cold. i love your cute sailor coat too!

  14. Olha o tomate brasileiro tem assim um sabor característico mas se tivesse que escolher um fruto próximo seria maracujá, só que mais amargo. Mas é bom :)
