    TOP SS TRENDS | SÍLVIA

    Now it's my turn to talk about the Spring/Summer trends that most speak to me. The color block looks are apparently here to stay and I am all for it, so are the full white/ecru looks: keep 'em coming! However, there are other more subtle trends that kinda never left but have been slowly taking over our closets and instagram feeds. Here are my favorites (click on the pictures for the links): UTILITY JACKETS/SHIRTS/JUMPSUITS Perfect for those (that like me) are a bit sick of blazers and require a somewhat fresher outwear for spring or summer. Not as wearable in a corporate setting I must admit, but who cares? I'm…

    FOR RAINY DAYS

    Rainy days are here whether we like it or not. To make you feel better about it I setup two 'fast fashion' looks that are both stylish and rain friendly. One more casual (on the left) and the other more business (on the right). Hope you like it! Os dias de chuva estão aí à porta quer queiramos quer não. Para vos consolar preparei estes dois looks, ambos com muita pinta e amiguinhos da chuva. Um mais casual (à esquerda) e o outro mais business (à direita). Espero que gostem!

    SALES!

    Hello lovelies! These are most of my sale purchases this season. As you can see it's mostly basic pieces in basic colours (except for that snake print skirt which I am still unsure about). I also got a few extra 'worth buying' things which I will list hereunder. Hope you like it! Olá amores! Aqui está a maior parte das peças que comprei nos saldos desta estação. Como podem ver, são peças básicas em cores neutras (excepto a saia em padrão cobra sobre a qual ainda estou indecisa). Comprei algumas peças extra que não pus no moodboard mas que listo abaixo. Espero que gostem! MANGO Handmade Coat UTERQUE Ankle Boots…

    MINIMALISTIC ACCESSORIES

    I am so obsessed with nordic style accessories at the moment. How effortlessly chic and clean they look. It has been all about neutrals and quality materials for a while now and when it comes to accessories COS and ARKET seem to tick all the boxes. Their products are a little expensive, but if you manage to find the perfect, timeless scarf or purse it will definitely be worthwhile. Just make sure it's the right one. I am also very much into nylon and wool lately. Here are some of my current favorites. Hope you like it! Estou obcecada com marcas e estilo nórdico. São tão chiques e 'clean', sem esforço.…

    BLACK FRIDAY WISHLIST | SÍLVIA

    My initial Black Friday wish list was triple the size of this one but I had to narrow it down. My suggestion? Do not impulse buy! Go for the basics and for the items you don't want to wait until Christmas sale for or those that you think will sell out before. Nowadays I avoid buying too many 'statement' pieces because the year after or after wearing it a couple times I am already sick of it. Be responsible, but don't forget to treat yourself 🙂 Hope you like it. [PT] A minha Black Friday wishlist inicial tinha o triplo do tamanho desta, mas tive de a reduzir. A minha…

    MY GO-TO BODY LOTIONS

    Just because bare leg weather is officially gone it doesn't mean us girls should neglect moisturising. I get very dry skin in winter, and the stockings and tight trousers don't help (I imagine you're the same!). Over the years and especially after having lived in Turkey for one year (where the weather is supeeeer dry and the water terrible) the skin on my legs started cracking and flaking - I neglected it for a while and it took me over two years to recover with the help of a dermatologist. Do not make the same mistake! Moisturise and drink plenty water! Below are my favorite moisturisers, including the one that…

    THE EVERYDAY MAKE-UP I DON’T DO EVERYDAY

    I am definitely not the makeup guru of this duo, Rita is. But still, I managed to master the no-make-up make-up look quite well. It's a look that you can do everyday!... Except I don't, because I'm lazy and prefer to sleep those extra 10min every other morning. If you're lazy just like me here is my (almost) everyday make-up routine: De nós duas eu definitivamente não sou o guru da maquilhagem, a Rita é que é. No entanto, acho que finalmente consegui o no-make-up make-up look perfeito para mim. É uma coisa que podem fazer todos os dias!... Mas porque sou preguiçosa, não faço e prefiro dormir mais 10…

    SNAKE PRINT ON REPEAT

    I think we can all now agree that snake print is not leaving our closets just yet. Shirt dresses are super in right now (moodboard coming soon) and when combined with animal print, well I just couldn't resist. This dress can be worn with high heels (for a more formal look), with ankle boots or even with sneakers (I tried it on with my vans and it looks super cool!). The lipstick I am wearing in the picture is NARS Velvet Matte Pencil in color Cruella. What I am wearing: ZARA Shirt Dress ZARA old boots (similar here) ZARA Vinyl Bag   Hope you like it! Acho que podemos todos…

    POP OF RED

    I think I've said this before but I am usually an 'all black everything' kind of girl. However, this season (maybe because collections are simply more colourful or I just need something to brighten the greyer days)  I've been going for a pop of color and have been considering maybe color blocking an outfit or two with something other than black.. baby steps. On another note I would like to highlight how happy I am with my new basic white tee from ARKET. It's just perfect; super comfortable and 100% cotton, also affordable (15€)! I might have just found the perfect basic tee brand for me! I decided to complement…
