Get ready folks… put your sunglasses on because I’ve got my legs out and they’ll blind you otherwise! For someone who lives in a warm climate, my legs are ridiculously white… almost translucent. But last weekend, I decided it was time to get them out, so I put my denim skirt on and went for a drive in the country with hubby.
In the hills and valleys of the beautiful area known as Odelouca, we found this gorgeous little spot where a stream welcomed a multitude of storks and other animals (we could hear them but didn’t see any other creatures though!). Although the wind was a tiny bit chilly, the glorious sun made for a beautiful day with blue skies and the odd fluffy cloud. I’m so lucky to be living in this part of the world.
I chose this denim skirt (from Modalfa) because I’m not quite ready for shorts yet and you know how I’m obsessed with denim so it seemed the natural progression lol. I must say, I’m not a huge fan of this skirt though because I’m always having to pull it down. It was driving me mad! I guess I need to find one that fits a bit better?
The stripey top is from Quebramar, one of hubby’s favourite shops. It’s kind of a ‘boating’ style shop, selling all kinds of clothes suitable for those that enjoy spending time on the water. We’ve both got quite a few tops from there, mostly polo-style but it’s a great place for good quality clothes. I loved this top as soon as I spotted it – probably the stripes!
You’re probably wondering about the red shoes. They’re fab, aren’t they? I’ve had them years and years and they’re still in great condition. I got them from Clarks so needless to say they’re super comfortable and very supportive underfoot (they’re Active Air). I love the cross-over straps, I think they add that little bit of fun, don’t you think? They’re a great alternative to sneakers, with their rubber soles too.
You might remember me telling you about this handbag that I bought in a popular leather shop in my hometown here in the Algarve. After I paid 70 euros for it, I got it home only to discover it’s not even leather! But I do love it so I kept it lol.
