Personal | Blog closed for vacations

I have sad news dear readers: I am taking a break from the blog.
There will be no posts during August.

Why? Because...
In a few days I am leaving for an amazing journey: an interrail in Europe. It will last a whole month.
I will be in Bruges, Brussels, Budapest, Florence, Munich, Prague, Rome, Salzburg, Venice and Wien.
I am truly sorry but I won't have the means to keep you update on this adventure directly.
However, I will be back in September and I truly hope you're still there
so I can share the experience with you!

That being said, any advice on these cities? Anything really: museums, restaurants, shops...
Let me know, you are always so helpful! Thank you very much and see you in September!


Tenho notícias tristes: vou fazer uma pausa do blogue.
Não vão haver quaisquer posts durante o mês de Agosto.

Porquê? Porque...
Dentro de alguns dias parto para uma viagem fantástica: um interrail na Europa. Um mês inteiro.
Vou estar em Bruges, Bruxelas, Budapeste, Florença, Munique, Praga, Roma, Salzburgo, Veneza e Viena.

Peço imensa desculpa mas não vou conseguir manter-vos actualizados em directo.
No entanto, em Setembro estarei de volta e espero sinceramente que aí estejam ainda
para que possa partilhar a experiência convosco!

Dito isto, alguma dica quanto a estas cidades? Qualquer coisa: monumentos, restaurantes, lojas...
Digam-me tudo, ajudam-me sempre imenso! Muito obrigada por tudo e vemo-nos em Setembro!

Outfits | July's outfits

Summer time. Finally the hot days arrived! This month it was all about shorts, dresses and light pants that allowed my legs to breath in the hot Lisbon weather. So, do you have any favourite? Let me know!
Verão. Finalmente os dias quentes chegaram! Este mês as estrelas foram os calções, os vestidos e as calças frescas para que as minhas pobres pernas conseguissem respirar no calor de Lisboa. Algum favorito? Digam-me tudo!


Outfit | Darling, we were not supposed to be

Swimsuit worn as top: Seafolly via Blogger's Wardrobe || Pants: Zara || Heels: Primark || Bag: Haiti || Watch: Triwa via Blogger's Wardrobe

Excitement&Fear. Do you know that feeling when you order something you love online, but then can't help but thinking how it will look on you? And fear it is not the best? Well, that was what happened to me and this bathing suit. I seriously wondered whether or not to get it... But now I'm so excited I did. Not only does it look amazing as a bathing suit, it can also be worn as a bustier as I'm showing you (I have a weird thing of wearing bathing suits as tops, remember this?). So, do you like it? I hope you do! Much love.

Watch: Triwa via Blogger's Wardrobe

My second package from Blogger's Wardrobe arrived this past week.
I received this watch and another piece... Curious to know what is it? Find out tomorrow!
A minha segunda encomenda do Blogger's Wardrobe chegou a semana passada.
Recebi este relógio e uma outra peça... Curiosos para saber o quê? Descubram amanhã!


Inspiration board | Summer

This time of the year just rocks.
That's all I have to say.
Esta altura do ano é a melhor.
E é tudo o que tenho a dizer.


Outfit | Futuristic

Dress: Primark || Heels: Zara || Bag: Vintage

Keeping it simple. Throughout these months of blogging, you certainly have already noticed that I'm not a complex kind of person when it comes to my personal style. I prefer to keep it down to the basics and - to my deepest sadness - I barely accessorize. Therefore, when I thought of how I wanted to style this amazing graphic printed dress from Primark (a steal at 11€!), I decided I wanted to keep it really really minimalist. For this one, it's all about the dress.


Preview of tomorrow's post | Details

These are the details of tomorrow's outfit.
These are the colours as well, I'll tell you only that much!
Estes são os detalhes do conjunto de amanhã.
E estas são também as cores, e é só isto que vos conto!

Inspiration board | Studs

Studs. Studs everywhere.
Tachas. Tachas em todo o lado.


Inspiration board | Rock girls

What to say? I just love this rocky edgy style.
And I really have to find myself a good black leather jacket.
O que dizer? Adoro este estilo mais rock e ousado.
E tenho mesmo que arranjar um casaco de cabedal preto.


Outfit | All we need is...

Shirt: Portobello marker || Shorts: Vintage || Sandals: Pull&Bear || Bag: Local store

Up in the air. Isn't it just so cool to take jumping pictures? I have always loved the movement vibe it gives to images... I even love the puffy hair and the awkward leg poses. The only thing I don't like all that much is how stupid my face looks, but you can't have everything. I wore this outfit to go for a day in the city, have lunch, shop, the usual stuff... I really missed a non-heeled, bare legs, casual outfit, didn't you?


Preview of tomorrow's outfit | What do we all need?

Shirt: Portobello market || Shorts: Vintage

A friend of mine brought me this shirt from Portobello market in London.
I love its print: all we need indeed is peace, love and music!
(Ok, and maybe just a little bit of fashion as well!)
Um amigo trouxe-me esta camisola do mercado de Portobello em Londres.
Adoro o estampado: tudo o que precisamos de facto é paz, amor e música!
(Ok, e talvez só um bocadinho de moda!)


Inspiration board | Messages through Fashion

Printed t-shirts are just such a great way to send a (very literal) message through the way you dress.
That being said, I really need to get myself one of these (or all of them?!). They're so cool!
T-shirts estampadas são uma óptima maneira de nos exprimirmos (literalmente) através da roupa.
Dito isto, tenho mesmo que arranjar uma destas (ou todas?!). São lindas!


Outfit | Fragile flower

Dress: In love with fashion (on sale here!) || Heels: Cortefiel || Bag: Local store

Countryside in the city. I have to admit that even though I am a big town kinda girl, I adore the countryside. My mother's family lives in the countryside and going there in the Summer was something I looked forward to ever since I was a little girl. To me, this dress combines the countryside and the city perfectly: the pattern is perfect to stroll down a blossomed field, but the open back gives it an appeal that makes it city appropriate. Ahh, what can I say? I'm in Love indeed... Isn't it just great?


Preview of tomorrow's outfit | In love with fashion dress

Tomorrow you will see this amazing Love dress...
This and other great styles are now on sale, go check it out here!
(I promise it's totally worth it! I'm biting my nails to keep me from buying the entire store.)
Amanhã vão ver este fantástico vestido da Love...
O melhor? Este modelo (e outros igualmente giros) estão agora em saldo, vejam aqui!
(Prometo que vale a pena! Eu estou aqui a roer as unhas para ver se não compro a loja toda.)


Inspiration board | Fairytales & Woods

Today I'm leaving Lisbon to spend some days in the countryside... Hence the woods theme.
Despite being heaven on Earth, it is so in the middle of nowhere that I won't have Internet connection.
But fear not, I have left you a queue of great posts set up!
Hoje parto da minha Lisboa para passar uns dias no campo... Daí tanta floresta.
Apesar de ser um pedaço de céu na Terra, é tão no meio do nada que não tenho Internet.
Mas não se preocupem, deixei-vos posts agendados para a minha ausência!


Giveaway | Sheinside 100$ coupon winner

Congratulations darling!

Outfit | Classy

Shirt: Oasap || Shorts: Sugarlips (buy them here) || Heels: Zara || Bag: Zara || Scarf: Primark || Belt: Vintage

Versatility. I love to own pieces that are versatile: the kind of pieces that you can dress up or dress down whatever way you want to and they still look fantastic. These Sugarlips shorts, that I had already showed you here, are one of those pieces. I just can't stop wearing them, they look so good with everything!


Preview of tomorrow's outfit | Same but different

Studded shorts: Sugarlips (buy them here) || Belt: Vintage

Another outfit with the shorts I already showed you here.
I'm so in love with them I couldn't resist! They are just so versatile.
Outro conjunto com os calções que já vos tinha mostrado aqui.
Gosto tanto tanto deles que não resisti! São tão versáteis.

Inspiration board | Black & White

After a long absence from the blog, the inspiration boards are back!
And what better way to restart them than with classy black and white?
Depois de uma longa ausência no blogue, os quadros de inspiração estão de volta!
E que melhor maneira de recomeçar que com o clássico preto e branco.


Outfit | Textures

Shirt: Blanco || Shorts: Sugarlips (find them here) || Sandals: Haiti || Hat: H&M

Love at first sight. When I saw these shorts for the first time I told myself: "No Mariana. No no no, you have way too many shorts". But then I couldn't help it, they are just so gorgeous... Do any of you also have these strange feelings towards clothing or is it just me?


Preview of tomorrow's outfit | Texture mixing

Shorts: Sugarlips (find them here)

Tomorrow you'll see a really cool mixture of textures: felt, studs and lace!
Who's curious to see it?
Amanhã vão ver uma grande mistura de texturas: feltro, tachas e renda!
Quem está curioso para ver?

Making of Re-Vintage Clothing Editorial

Photos by Jorge Wan

Busy weekend. I spent this weekend shooting an editorial for a friends clothing line: Re-Vintage Clothing. You have no idea how much fun it was, everyone got along really well and the group had a great dynamic! Today I'm showing you some of our backstage shots... are you excited to see the final result? I know I am!


Outfit | Galaxy yet again

Shirt: Solilor (find it here) || Pants: Zara || Bag: Zara || Belt: H&M

Deja vu. I know I had already showed you a galaxy printed shirt here, but when I saw this one I instantly loved it: not only the colours are great, but the detail in the back is just out of this world (galaxy, out of this world, get it? Ok, failed attempt)! That being said I decided to style it up a bit to go out for dinner... I'm for sure enjoying my vacations! Off to see Portuguese Idol now... Much love!


Preview of tomorrow's outfit | Galaxy again

Shirt: Solilor

Another wonderful galaxy shirt (remember this one?),
but this time with a really cool back detail!
Outra camisola de padrão galáxia (lembram-se desta?),
mas deste vez com um detalhe giríssimo nas costas!


Outfit | Splash of colour

Shirt: H&M || Pants: Solilor (find them here) || Heels and bag: Etxart&Panno 

Summer finally begun. Today I found out that I passed my last exam and that means one thing only: I'm officially on vacations! It feels so good to know that I won't have to grab a book in two whole months, unless it is to discover some fantastic fantasy stories. And to celebrate the beginning of my carefree life, I decided to wear these awesome harem pants from Solilor. I've wanted a pair for so long, and these not only have the perfect shape but also the dots add a playful touch to the garment that I love! Do you like them? Do you have any plans for Summer already? Let me know!

Pants: Solilor (find them here)

Tomorrow the outfit will be really colourful, just because I'm super happy:
my exams are over and my Summer has officially started!
O post de amanhã vai ter muita cor, a condizer com a minha felicidade:
os meus exames acabaram e o meu Verão finalmente começou!


Concurso | E as vencedoras são...

E as duas meninas que vão participar comigo no editorial para a Revintage Clothing são...
a Liliana de Um blog Fashion e a Rita de The Teenage Royalty.

Obrigada por todas as participações e parabéns às vencedoras!

Outfit | Girly nudes

Top: Oasap (find it here) || Shorts: H&M || Heels: Zilian || Jacket: Zara || Ring: Oasap (find it here)

Baggy. I have (yet another) confession to make: I don't like showing too much skin while wearing high heels, because I think it looks too sexy! I mean for a party it's totally ok, but for everyday life I just find it too much. However, when I received this super girly top from Oasap this entire outfit just popped into my head and I knew I had to make an exception. Somehow it works for me, I didn't fell awkward or too exposed. I love the bagginess of the outfit and its sweet colous: combined they give such a naive feeling to what could have been  a sexy outfit, don't you think?


Preview of tomorrow's outfit | Neutrals

Top: Oasap (find it here) || Ring: Oasap (find it here)

My 19 year old life started with really girly colours,
a cool ring and colour matching nails!
A minha vida com 19 anos começou com cores femininas,
um anel invulgar e cor de unhas a condizer!


Personal | Happy birthday to me!

Nineteen already. Today I turn nineteen! My last teen year, ahah I feel so old! Unfortunately I spend the day studying because I still have one more exam... but now I'll have some dinner with my family. I took some photos of my presents (the flowers and the sandals were given to me; the lipsticks were a present to myself!) and of my soon-to-be-eaten delicious cake! Hope you enjoy them, and thank you so much for being there! :) 

Outfits | June's outfits

A bit of everything. This month the outfits I showed you have absolutely nothing in common with each other: some are still warm, so are totally sumerish; some are bright coloured and some are more neutral; some are fancy and some are casual... Which is great, because that way I can inspire you on more levels!  So, do you have any favourite?
