There’s nothing quite like being beside the seaside, is there? Unless, perhaps it’s August, it’s mind-bogglingly hot and swarms of tourists can be found around every corner! But I’m not complaining, of course not 😉 We popped into Portimao yesterday to have a wander around and a refreshing glass of orange juice at Pastelaria Arade. Then we stopped for a little while to admire the boats. It really is wonderful down there. But oh so hot. So very hot.

Because of the heat, there was only one thing to wear: shorts. So I got out my old trusty white denims and put on my brand new green vest from Quebramar – which I got in the sale half price (yay!). And it was so hot, that I couldn’t even bother wearing a bra lol! There’s nothing worse than having to wear a bra in this heat, right?! I couldn’t even wear a necklace, either!

I chose my pretty white pleather handbag to go with the outfit, as well as my nude leather gladiator sandals. We ended up not staying in town too long though, because I just couldn’t bear it – the heat, that is. We are having a bit of a heat wave as I write and I just can’t get on with it. Sorry if you’re living in England and suffering with the opposite problem! I don’t mean to rub it in 😉

Have a fabulous week, folks!

    I’m a little envious of your hot weather… I would love a hot day or two here and there.

  • Suzy, green is such a fabulous color on you! I am quite partial to the color green as I am a green-eyed gal who has forever loved the color. But this particular shade is quite striking. I love it paired with white. And I hear you on the heat and not being able to tolerate it. Although, I hit the point of it being intolerable somewhere around 75 degrees Fahrenheit! I am a cold weather girl for sure. I hope it has cooled off some for you so you can be comfortable. Thanks so much for joining my #SpreadTheKindness Link Up.


    • LOL Shelbee, you really are a cold weather girl! It gets a lot hotter than that here which is why I’m always longing for the Autumn to arrive. But evenings are starting to get much cooler now phew. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Love the green on you Suzy, as you know it is one of my favorite colors. Looks great with the white shorts and I love being outside too. It has been hot here as well.. but a cooler summer than usual.
    thanks for linking!

    • Thanks so much Jess! I see you’re talking about green on your blog today… it is the BEST colour ever! LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

  • I love that shade of green Suzy, it looks great with the white shorts. I do like hot weather when I can lounge by a pool all day but when you need to get on with stuff it can be horrible. It was very hot when we went to Madrid last year (35-38c) and the cafes and restaurants sprayed a fine cooling mist from the ceiling intermittently, that was so nice!

    • Oooh yes I’ve been to the odd place that sprays a fine mist to cool you down. It’s heavenly! But I agree with you… when you have to work in the heat, it’s hellish. But if you can chill by the pool, there’s nothing better.
      Thanks for stopping by, Emma!
