An Easy Way to Choose What to Wear

An easy way to choose what to wear is to ask yourself: “What will I wear today?” And then follow the first image or suggestion that comes to your mind. That’s what I did with this outfit I’m wearing on the post and what I do for practically every outfit I wear. It’s not infallible but it works almost every time :) The audio is in Portuguese but I promise I’ll start making the audios in English soon :). Basically I talk about how, when you really know your style, what you love and the basic rules of styling, you create outfits you love to see on you, and you feel so comfortable and happy about your style that you stop worrying about what other people think. Uma maneira fácil de escolheres o que usar é perguntares a ti própria: “O que vou usar hoje?” E seguires a primeira imagem ou sugestão que te…

How to Have Beautiful Skin

There are lots of ways to learn how to have beautiful skin. The last time I went to the dermatologist, he told me: “- Your skin looks very dull, let’s start by taking care of your skin.” He gave me a lot of very good creams and I noticed the difference. This time I was going to go there again but instead I decided to follow Sofia Vergara’s advice. She’s an actress in the “Modern Family” series, that I love to see with my kids. She’s my age and has great skin (at least it looks like she has ;))! She says that she always used Creme de La Mer (and started many years ago) so I decided to give it a try. You probably already heard about it because the cream is pretty famous. Because it’s expensive and because it makes a difference ;) I only started using it…

What to Buy in Sales (and what I Bought)

Sales are a bit irresistible to me… ;) It’s a good time to buy clothes because you can get pieces at a much better price, but sometimes it takes courage because of all the confusion going on in stores. The best time is right in the morning because everything is more organised and there’s less people. I like to go to sales in the beginning because there are more pieces. And then in the end because there are super cheap things and sometimes you find a cute piece. On the flip side, at that time you won’t find a lot of pieces. To help you choose in the middle of all the confusion, here are some ideas, from pieces I bought and others I wouldn’t mind buying (and I might still buy some ;)). I chose simpler and more basic pieces but sales are a great time to buy trendier…

What to Wear to Christmas and New Year’s

Here are some ideas for Christmas and New Year’s parties! Before I wanted to say… HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! I hope you enjoy yourself this Christmas and New Year. Every second! I’ve been busy in my house move and everything’s a little chaotic, but it’s good to get away of Lisbon’s confusion in a calmer place and a much bigger house ;) I’ve come to the conclusion that I need Space :) Here are the ideas, they’re simple so you look gorgeous without needing to think too much about it!

How to Wear a Lace Skirt (and Change an Outfit Easily)

Do you like lace skirts?

I love them!

When I saw this skirt in Zara, it was love at first sight ;)

It was near a black t-shirt I also bought. But when I tried the skirt with that t-shirt I didn’t like it at all because it was too long. I remembered this Mickey t-shirt and also the sweatshirt that says “There is Nothing but Fashion”.

As for the sneakers, I had already decided to wear the lace skirt with them, when I bought it, because I love to see chic skirts with sneakers (of all kinds).
