Bom dia! Greetings from sunny Lisbon where I am currently on vacation. I'm gonna keep things short because,well, like I said I'm on vacation (but I guess a blogger's job is never done), but also because I've had a full day doing touristy stuff, walking around this beautiful city and I am pretty exhausted. The pictures were taken at the impressive Torre de Belem situated on the bank of the Tangus river. Enjoy!

I am officially on vacation. Yey! But before my flight leaves this afternoon I still have some time to kill so I'll be sharing with you some pictures I recently shot in a dreamy location, the No name beach. There's nothing better than relaxing at the pool after a long day at work or during the weekend on these hot summer days. You don't need much, just trow on a casual maxi dress, a floppy straw hat and some cool shades and you're good to go. Going barefoot is a must, it relaxes me and helps me discharge all the accumulated negative energies into the ground. Bye-bye for now, stay tuned and I'll be sharing some vacation pictures pretty soon!

The perfect summer dress this season turned out to be this thrifted one that has been hanging in my closet for a few years now. White is always a wise choice when it's scorching hot outside and the subtle floral pattern makes it more fun and quirky. The shape is very flattering on all body types and will not cling to you which is very important. If a slight breeze should blow you've even got an excellent built in ventilation system. Pair this up with flat sandals in a contrasting color and the wow effect is guaranteed. Even my peach lemonade matches the outfit, go figure!

The weekend is finally here and a good excuse to wear another t-shirt from the Yellow Motif label by Vigo Studio. The Design me t-shirt is all about breaking the rules and experimenting. I decided to wear mine layered over a basic sleeveless dress with a bold cut in the front. Throw in a worn down pair of Converse and you're good to go. You might be hitting the swimming pool like me, go out for a coffee with friends or go on a shopping spree but whatever you do, do it with great attitude and confidence.

Whenever I wear these heart shaped sunglasses I think of two things: one is Marilyn Manson's video for Heart-shaped glasses and of course, the obvious one, the Lolita film poster. Although Lolita does not wear the sunglasses anywhere in the film, the movie poster imagine has been burned deep on our retinas, which only goes to prove once more the power of marketing. It was obviously very appropriate for me to take these pictures in front of a school gate to make the connection with the book and movie character even stronger. With such a pair of statement sunglasses I tend to keep the rest quite simple and add only a few key accessories.

A few months back I did a shooting for a magazine that never came out, and who knows if it ever will. This dress was custom made for the shooting by my friend Adriana who was also styling the shoot. The poor things has been hanging out in my closet ever since, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and do a shooting of my own. Adriana knows my love for dragonflies and she skillfully hand painted this beautiful creature on the dress. I absolutely adore the floor length and the open back, with a view on my cherry blossom tattoo and a sneak peek of the dragonfly on my ribcage.
