God bless the Summer!

Summer is finally here!

Days are bigger and hotter, and nothing seems to be as bad and dark as it would be in Winter. I believe that brighter days are the best for your soul and mind!

I confess that I prefer Winter clothes because they always seem more glamorous. When it comes to shoes, well I just can’t decide what’s best. I mean, shoes are shoes! It’s always good! hehe

I also must confess that these shoes are one of the most awful shoes to walk in. I love them but they are extremely unconfortable and they don’t fit me that well.

But I guess that when you love a pair…you just won’t give up that easily! I am a size 4 and this is more like a size 3, so you can imagine my pain…

Enjoy your Summer, preferably in wonderful shoes (confortable if possible)!

It’s a…

kitty II

It was exactly one month ago when I last created a post. I’ve been busy, but today I wanted to share with you the love for my pet, and of course show you my outfit.

This is Dexter, my white, playful cat. I have him for almost a year now, and we both have been through a lot in this relationship. I had a hard time adapting to his presence and to all the fur inside the house. He got sick and almost died. So now I guess we are both in a happy place.

Dexter was an abandoned cat. I have named him after the famous TV show “Dexter”. Not because he’s some sort of rats and lizards serial killer, but because when I found him, his ears had some blood and he was a mess. We take good care of him and keep him inside the house, but the damage was already done. His ears never completely healed, and continued furless. So we have to apply sunscreen when he goes outside, because he still loves to do it.

I have developed such an affection for this little fury ball, that I can’t imagine my life without him!

Says the Cat: ” I don’t usually want to cuddle, but when I do, you are wearing all black and about to leave for work.”

Today I was not wearing black, but navy…which is about the same. But I think it was me who wanted to cuddle, like I always do!

Both the shoes and the cullotte were bought on sale. I think it’s an elegant and chic outfit for work, or for a night out if you wish. What do you think?

When I first saw this cullotte I instantly remembered Sex and The City, Carrie Bradshaw. Sarah Jessica Parker wore a suit with a similar shape in one of the episodes. So I had to have this. These days everyone wears super short Shorts, so I like to make the difference.

Do you like the combination? Would you wear the cullotte? Is this more of a work outfit or a night out type?

“One day the sun admitted,
I am just a shadow.
I wish I could show you
The Infinite Incandescence
That has cast my brilliant image!
I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The astonishing Light
Of your own Being!” Hafiz Hamidun

Reading with Style

DSC_0198 (2)

Sometimes we just need to go to the balcony, take some sun rays and read a (good) book. But always with style! In my case, in Royal Blue heels and ripped jeans!

Have a great weekend everyone. Enjoy the sun, enjoy the silence, enjoy life!

Tchau!

On a Windy Day

Image

One of the advantages of living in a semi tropical island – belonging to Portugal, but closer to Africa – is the weather.

Okay, we had our bad times lately with floods and land slidings, but usually the Winter around here is like this: sunny… and windy! Probably that’s why I got sick a few days ago. But I am feeling better now, otherwise I wouldn’t be posing so much! 😀

So basically I thought it was time to share with you one of my daily outfits, and since I bought some new items lately, the timing was perfect. Sometimes I feel that I really have a problem with shopping, aka, shopaholic. I need something to get my mind off shopping, but that hasn’t happened yet, so…

About the outfit, it’s something simple that I wore today:

Jeans: Tally Weijl; Cardigan: Unknown brand; Top: Zara; Bag: Stradivarius (old); Shoes: Stradivarius

Tchau!

Looking for the shoes!

It’s been a week since the Golden Globes. By the way, congrats Leo, you’re worth it!

Everyone posts about the dresses from the Golden Globes. What about the shoes? I know that usually the shoes are hidden underneath the gown, so I looked for those “peek a boo” dresses!

I made a selection of four shoes.

Aubrey Plaza

These floral shoes are very cute. Usually we see the celebrities wearing one color shoes, so this was a pleasant surprise. Let’s face it, it must not be easy to pick a pair of shoes that go well with a two tone dress, especially pink and purple! In fact, I like the dress too. It has a fun and modern cut.

But let’s go back to the shoes again.

fitzgerald

I kind of like Caitlin FitzGerald’s dress. It’s a bit retro, but I love the low cut shape.  The shoes complement the dress perfectly. The combination of sky blue and a pink-ish shade is very original and cute. This vamp style shoes is a passion of mine! I would wear these type of shoes each day if it wasn’t for the cold outside! Still, I think I can wear during the day. Aww, the advantages of living in a semi tropical island!

Just as a final note, and even before showing you my other options, these shoes that Caitlin wore, are my favourite.

And here comes Zooey!

zooey

I really don’t like Zooey’s dress, and despite haven’t figured out if these are heels or ballerinas, I like her shoes! Great nude color and texture! I would wear these, no problem with it!

zoe

And here’s another homophone Zoe! These are the type of shoes that almost every woman would like to have: timeless and chic. These are elegant beyond words. I do not like her dress, despite some good critiques. I only, truly like her shoes.

Okay, so now I feel the need to show you my top dresses of this edition of the Golden Globes. I don’t have an absolute favorite, but as you can see they form a pattern: black or pink-ish. If I had to choose a favorite, I would probably say the one that Maria Menounos (number 2 from the left) wore. Bright color, perfect sheer.

What about you, were you peeking at the celebrities shoes as well? What was your favorite pair from my selection? What’s your favorite gown? Tell me, tell me…

Tchau!

A Broken Spell

Image

This is the new Zara Shoe Boot. I fell in love, really! Do you remember this same style in SS/13, but on a leopard print? They were sold out everywhere! So this time I thought I shouldn’t lose the opportunity to have this as well beautiful, pair of shoes. But, when I have tried them on, it somewhat have broken the spell. I thought the heel was a bit too high – 10,6 cm by the way – and the laces very unpractical. These days they cost 49,95€ (around $68). So I think, it’s a wise decision to wait for the pre sales, after Christmas. If I am fast and lucky enough, I will find them at a lower price, which will launch a new spell on me!

What do you think about these shoes? Which one do you like the most: the black&white or the leopard print version? Are you a shoe addict? Please let me know, I’ll be soooo happy! 🙂

Tchau
