    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…

    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…

    CYCLING SHORTS

    I had mixed feelings about wearing cycling shorts outside the gym (not that I ever go there...) but while swapping them around with my jeans I saw most looks worked surprisingly well. Not only are they super comfortable, they are also very versatile: you can wear them with a blazer and chunky sneakers (like I'm wearing in a picture) or with a denim jacket instead or even with an oversized shirt and some ankle boots; the combinations are endless. Too bad I just can't wear them to work... Last weekend I wore them with a checked blazer from H&M, New Balance sneakers and an oversized T. I added the links…

    THE CHECKED BLAZER

      Blazers are so versatile! But probably the most versatile of them all is the checked. You can wear it with sneakers, boots, heels,  jeans, dresses... the list goes on. I own a few but this one from Zara is my most recent purchase. It has the perfect color combination for fall (and mind you, I am usually an 'all black everything kind of girl', but this one really caught my eye) and I can even wear it to work. In here I combined it with a pair of high waisted straight leg jeans (also from Zara) and a simple black t-shirt (my favorite silk blend from H&M) but I…

    CORDUROY IS BACK!

    As you may have already noticed (to the shock of some of us) the corduroy fabric we hated so much as kids is back in full force… except we love it now!! And because we are so good to you, we have gathered what we think are the most affordable corduroy showstoppers of the season. We hope you like it! _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ [PT] Como já se devem ter apercebido (e para o choque de alguns/algumas de nós) a bombazina que tanto odiávamos em criança está de volta em grande força… a diferença é que agora nós adoramo-la!! E porque somos tão vossas amigas, seleccionámos as peças de bombazina que consideramos as…
