Midi Sports

Hello there, guys!
Summer is finally back, or at least the sun is out and the good weather as well. We're heading out to pick up the rest of our things to bring them to our new home (it seems it never ends...). 
We shot this look a few days ago before it started to rain like hell. It turned out one of my favorites! This midi skirt quickly became my favorite piece in my closet - so retro, chic and super versatile - and I have the same in white. Gotta play with them more often!

Back to work!

Chic Boyfriend

Good morning, dears!

Well, first couple days of Summer and they are full with rain, thunder, wind and just a tiny portion of sunlight. St. Peter is playing with us... Not cool, man!

I'm sorry for the radio silence on the blog but these last few days have been chaotic and when the day end all I want is to lay in bed and sleep. 
But finally things have calm down and I'm back on track with my outfit posts!
This is my daily uniform. I cannot get enough of the combination with trashed jeans, blazer and heels. Edgy and chic, are the main characteristics I'm looking for when I'm standing in front of my wardrobe. Those jeans used to belong to my brother, but since he grow up and got thinner, I adapted them to me. A little touch here and there, cutting the knees on both legs and giving them a twist and voilá, they became my favorite pair of jeans! Adding black stilettos, white blazer and tank top and I'm ready to go. It's one of those looks you already know what to combine with what. 

And big news for the blog: I'm adding a new page named WORK where you can check my latest work as a freelancer stylist with a dear friend photographer, Bruno Rosa, whose first opportunity of working together came last year when he asked me if I wanted to do a phootshoot with him. 
By clicking here you can see what we have done so far and I cannot want to share with you our latest editorial with a gorgeous new Portuguese model.

With a little bit of luck, you will start seeing more of this work on the blog. What do you think, guys? 

Have a wonderful day!

Pick of the Day - Cross Back Dress

Find it HERE

Morning, dears!
Today it's going to be a busy day so I'm just letting you know a dress I cannot wait to buy. I have a huge thing for tight dresses, but that are covered in the front since I have a small chest. I tend to buy the ones that have an open back or other details to make it stand out. And this one is the perfect example! Not to open in the front and super open in the back. Beautiful! And it comes in other colors as well. It's so versatile, you can dress it up with a pair of pumps or ankle strap sandals and a blazer, or dress it down with a pair of flats and a leather jacket or an oversized spring coat. click here to check out more

Blue Halter

Good afternoon, guys!

Here you have yesterday's outfit. It was another almost Summer day and I decided to wear a dress that I usually don't wear that much (and I honestly don't know how! 'cause it's gorgeous!). I bought it last year for my birthday, from Miranda's Collection for Mango S/S 13. This dress came in four colors - black, red, blue and emerald green - and to change from all the black dresses I have I bought this amazing piece in blue. The neckline brings out the shoulders and the side zipper glues the dress to you body. It's not too tight or short so you don't feel uncomfortable in it, see it here on their facebook page.

Now, time to enjoy the company of my little nephew. He's growing so fast...

HoodBoyz & Marie Roget

Find the items (and in other colors):

Hey there, guys!
How's your week going? Here it's been super hot and sunny. We're still unpacking our things into the new home. And well, Portugal lost the first game of the World Cup but there's more games and we'll make it! There's still hope!

Good news! I've been contact recently by a brand called HoodBoyz, an online multibrand platform based in Germany and established in 1992. They're main clothing line focus on sports items and with some well-known brands like Adidas, Nike, DC and Timberland. Actually, they're retailing Hip-Hop and Street Style clothing for men, women and children offering a line of shoes, jackets, jeans, sports clothes and accessories for every age. And they're now on sales on the website so go take a look and you may find something you want/need at a super affordable price. They also have vouchers and coupons online for the costumers to save when shopping at they're online store or you can search for it at amazon
The company spreads their merchandising to various countries, that's why they have the options to be viewed in other languages and they ship internationally.

Besides the big names, there was one that called my attention, Urban Classics: great sports items, clean and minimal cuts and comfortable clothes. And have selected a few sports items since I'm coming back to my workout routine (after being forced to stop it due to some personal issues) it's a plus and a great way to work in style. I went for monochromatic items and added a varsity jacket to jazz up my daily casual style. And sneakers won't be a part of my selection from HoodBoyz. They will be in a neon color (maybe these ones), maybe pink which is a color I do not use that often but in training clothing I think it looks better. 



Hey, pessoal!

Como está a correr a vossa semana? Por aqui tem estado calor e solarengo. E ainda continuamos a desempacotar coisas na casa nova. E pronto, Portugal perdeu o primeiro jogo do Mundial mas ainda existem mais jogos e nós iremos conseguir avançar! Ainda há esperança!

E boas notícias! Fui contactada recentemente pela marca HoodBoyz, uma plataforma online e de multimarcas baseada na Alemanha e estabelecida em 1992. A sua principal linha de roupa concentra-se em elementos desportivos com marcadas de grande renome como Adidas, Nike, DC e Timberland. Actualmente vendem produtos de estilo Hip-Hop e Street Style para homem, mulher e crianças oferecendo um leque variado de itens como calçado, casacos, jeans, roupa desportiva e acessórios. E de momento encontram-se em saldos no seu website, portanto vão dar uma olhadela e pode ser que encontrem algo que queriam/precisem a um preço super acessível. E eles também têem online vouchers e cupões que os clientes podem guardar e usar nas suas compras online. 

A companhia divulga a sua marca por diversos continentes, por isso possuem a opção de visualizar o site em diversas línguas, e enviam internacional. 

Para além das grandes marcas, houve uma que me chamou a atenção, Urban Classics: itens desportivos incríveis, com corte simples e minimalista e roupa confortável. E como tal seleccionei algumas peças desportivas já que estou de volta à minha rotina diária de workout (apos ter sido forçada a parar por motivos pessoais) e é uma bela forma de treinar com estilo. Escolhi peças monocromáticas e adicionei um blusão varsity para mudar um bocado o meu estilo diario. Os ténis já não farão parte da minha selecção de HoodBoyz. Serão numa cor neon (talvez estes), talvez cor-de-rosa já que é uma cor que uso muito pouco mas que em roupa desportiva fica sempre bem.

Simple and Rustic Bedroom

Photos from Tumblr

Hey again, guys! I want to share some inspiration photos for what is going to be my new corner in the new house. I'm all for "less is more" and since I've started the blog I've embraced more and more that motto. I don't need a big expensive lifestyle when I happy for the simple things in life. And the same goes for home decoration and design. I've spent these last couple of days web searching the last things I need to decorating my new room, and the only thing missing is the wood base for my bed.
What do you think?


All in white

Good morning, dears!

So we're finally in our new home and I couldn't be more excited. Perfect home, perfectly located and at last some peace (of body and mind). And trust me, it's not good packing and unpacking boxes and furniture when it's about 38º C outside, during the afternoon. Not good! 
Yesterday was as hot as it is today, so I went for a total white look. When it comes to Summer outfits I tend to be very simple and minimal, because all I want to wear is the fresher and easiest piece of clothe I can find on my closet.
