Another grey, cold and rainy day here in Beja, Portugal. (it’s ok really, we have had beautiful weather up until now)
We are going to Lisboa to pick Will up at the airport in a little while and we are super excited!!! (we have never been apart for this long)
My inspiration today is the painter Gustav Klimt. He is one of my favorite artists and when he painted he always wore a long smock.
My tunic isn’t necessarily long 😉 but, it reminds me of the painting smocks I used to wear in pre-school.
What I’m wearing: Knitted hat by Urban Outfitters, Earrings by Anthropologie, Tunic by some random Portuguese label, Shirt underneath by Forever 21 (31 😉 ), Tights by some other random Portuguese label, Bag by Zara, Booties by French Connection (they’re baaaaack!!!)
Jacket/coat by Anthropologie (gift from Will), Dress by Forever 21 (or Forever 31 as I like to call it), Shirt worn underneath by French Connection, Tights by H&M, Boots by Matisse (surprise! I wore different ones today 😉 )
You get no stripes and no jeans/leggings from me today.
The temperature dropped a bit this morning so it was nice putting on warmer clothes.
You are getting a profile shot from me (it’s better than frontal anyway) because Lily slept horribly last night (she’s sick). Which meant that I slept horribly last night and have a tired face once again. (I don’t know about you winning Allie)
What I’m wearing: Knitted hat by Gap, Earrings (same as yesterday) are vintage, Long sweater cardigan by Zara, Dress/tunic by French Connection (it’s probably 6 years old but I still always wear it and love it), Tights (my faves, I love how they are cable knit and have colored specks) by Steve Madden and…. Booties by French Connection (yes, it’s the 4th day in a row that I’m wearing them. I might wear them the whole week! 😉 )
Sorry, stripes 2 days in row. I guess I’m liking stripes a lot this season also. Both for me and for Lily. 😉
To change the scenery a bit (sorry, no terrace pics yet this morning), I took these in the bedroom as we got ready.
What I’m wearing: Striped sweater by Scoop NYC, Layering tank underneath by Gapbody, The Kiss Jeans by AG, Knitted cap by Urban Outfitters, Earrings are vintage, and Booties (yes, again!) by French Connection.
What Lily is wearing: Striped shirt by Old Navy, Denim overalls by babyGap, Socks by Old Navy, Shoes/Booties by Pablosky Kids.
Ok, I’m back from trying to update my Portuguese ID card and passport.
Will be harder than I thought.
Anyway, it is such a beautiful (and warm) day here it hardly feels like fall.
I just realized after taking the pictures that I’m big time into navy and gray this fall.
Striped shirt by Zara (I love Zara!), White tank by Gapbody, Corduroy legging/pants by Anthropologie (seriously, I have to try really hard to not put these on every day, I bought them in gray and olive green. they areÂ awesome!!), Bag by Urban Outfitters (also functions as a diaper bag), Headband by CVS (6 colors for like $5.00. hello!), Sunglasses by Marc Jacobs (old but LOVE!), Traditional Portuguese gold earrings that were a gift from my dad, Booties by French Connection (you will seriously see these on my feet almost every day because i LOVE them!!)
Is everyone else having as much fun as me doing this?
Mine and Will’s relationship with Miami is….. complicated.
There are many things we love about this place. Our friends, the beach, the great community we now have around us, how easy it is to get around, the variety of culture, the art scene, our friends (did I mention friends already? we really love our friends)…
There are many things we hate about it too. How hot it is all year long (I think it’s hot 10 months out of the year), the lack of seasons (both Will and I really miss Fall), how flat the scenery is (it’s FLAT here!), how far Miami is from everything (if you drive for 5 hours, you are still in Florida and everything is still FLAT!)…
And just when we talk about moving out of state again (Raleigh, NC is still #1 choice), I have wonderful days like yesterday only to make things more complicated!
Lily and I had an amazing morning at the beach. It really couldn’t have been more amazing. (only Will there would have made it more amazing)
