Going floral by the river
Just a quick post to show how I styled a floral top on a very warm, sunny and laid back day. Me and B. went out to have lunch and spent a few hours by the river Sado. It was a wonderful afternoon, absolutely perfect! I love the light we have in Portugal, wh...

Beeeeeeeeeeee happy!
Whenever I mix yellow and black, I can't get away from the bee inside my head and end up mixing yellow with some other color. But today I set my mind into this combo and we went all the way (meaning I actually left home wearing it...). The weather has been ...
