Rainy day stripes

I wanted to share with you an outfit I wore a few weekends ago, when I went for a wander around South Kensington on a particularly warm but rainy Saturday. Queria partilhar convosco um look que vesti há uns fins-de-semana atrás, quando fui passear por South Kensington num Sábado quente, mas chuvoso. The dress is from Joules, I bought it at their beach boutique in Wells-next-the-sea and have been in love with it ever since – it’s basically a long t-shirt, and it is incredibly comfortable! O vestido é da Joules, comprei-o na boutique de praia em Wells-next-the-sea e tenho…

E encontramo-los por todo o lado: nas paredes de prédios, a decorar jardins, escadas, fontes, a lista é interminável. While I was on…

London files #3 – A morning in Hampstead

On the last Saturday in July, I woke up early and headed to Hampstead to meet up with the wonderful and super talented Nadia Meli. No último sábado de Julho, acordei cedo e dirigi-me para Hampstead para me encontrar com a querida e super talentosa Nadia Meli. I got in touch with Nadia because I wanted to boost my confidence, and my blog, by doing a proper photo session, and was really interested in working with her after seeing the photos she took of Anna (from Vivianna Does Makeup) and Mark, which were stunning. She was absolutely lovely and we…
