I can't believe it even as I'm writing it, but its true... Yesterday was my last day of high school! What??! Where has time gone? I know it sounds cliché but time has truly flown by. It seems like yesterday that I was only 11 years old, coming into this brand new school and feeling so frightened with all this new information to take in.
I've been so fortunate to have studied in the most amazing school, which I can now also call a second home. I have made the best memories, met the most amazing people and learned so much in this environment that it truly saddens me to think that this hugely important period of my life is over. However, that is how life works! We live in constant cycles, the closing of one leads to many new opportunities and that new stage in my life will be university... which I will be going to in September.
I can't thank every single person enough who was involved in making my days so happy and memorable in this outstanding place. Goodbyes are always difficult but I had to finish on a bright note by going around with my best friend, snapping some pictures in some of the most beautiful areas of school.
Today I leave for Brazil and as you can imagine, I could not be more excited!! I'll be going to visit family but also for a study retreat before my finals. I hope that you all enjoy your spring/easter breaks!

Apologies for the late post, my week has been so incredibly busy! Today has been the only day in the week that I spent at home and had some time to edit this new post!
These pictures were taken on a sunny afternoon spent with my best friend, exploring the centre of Lisbon. Sometimes its great to take off a day in our ever-so-busy weeks to just have a break and go places you don't usually visit often. Its a chance to take our minds of all the work and study we have ahead of us and enjoy the beautiful city we live in.
This was my chance to style my new Michael Kors bag I recently purchased, in which I aimed for a very-laid back, light and comfortable look. I've recently also been loving these Hogan shoes (-thanks mum for lending them to me!) For those of you who were not aware, Hogan is an Italian brand which designs shoes, bags and clothing. Their shoes are by far the best-sellers of the company and are very on trend in Italy. When I was there back in December (check out my Rome posts HERE) just about everyone had a pair at their feet. Now I can understand why, they're incredibly comfortable and high quality.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Queue the drum rolls because I'm finally back! My practice exams are over and now all I have to do is wait for the dreaded results and continue hard at work for my real ones which happen in may *cries*... As a little celebratory gift I went to Avenida da Liberdade for a casual afternoon with my mother.
Lately I've developed a slight obsession for this light blue leather jacket. When I first bought it I was a little hesitant on whether it was worth the purchase because I couldn't think of too many combinations, as this evidently isn't the most versatile of colors. However, the more I wear it the more I seem to love it. Its definitely unexpected, but I guess that's what makes it fun. Even if the combination isn't 100% matching, sometimes a little bit of a mismatch can bring together innovative ensembles.
Hope you like it and comment below telling me some of your thoughts!

When will it ever stop raining?! In Lisbon its been raining consistently for about a month now, with only a few breaks of sunny days in between, totally annoying! Anyway moving on to other topics, I want to begin by apologizing for such delayed posts but reality is that I'm reaching the final stage of my senior year which means insane amounts of work, studying and university pressures. I am now in my carnival half term... but that doesn't mean I have a study break at all because right when I get back on the 10th of March I have a two week trial exam period, fun fun fun.
Given that I have a more flexible schedule this week (and hoping that the weather cooperates) I will try my best to shoot outfit posts regularly, so make sure to keep updated through all my social media (FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, BLOGLOVIN).
Hope you all have an amazing carnival weekend!

Just a little play on the classic Miranda Priestly quote "Florals for spring... groundbreaking!" (explanation for you fashion lovers who have been living under a rock- Miranda is the main character from the movie 'The Devil Wears Prada'). It is true that pastels have big hitting it BIG this year. During the winter it was mostly seen on coats and now that spring is slowly approaching it is transitioning into more diversified pieces like skirts, shirts and even shoes.
I decided to mainly focus on blue and pink, as these have been the most popular choice by the biggest industry names. I made a selection from my favorite... the one and only ZARA who has been releasing the most AMAZING pieces in their new collection so be sure to check them out.

Weekends are the time to relax, study and just enjoy a little more freedom on our busy schedules.
The trick is to look and feel comfortable. Dresses are my go-to comfort clothing piece! They look effortlessly put-together and very feminine. During these winter weekends I also love wearing big felt hats, they make every outfit look so much sweeter and I have to say that they are quite successful at shielding your face and hair from the wind!
Hope you guys are enjoying your weekends to the fullest!
