I thought I’d follow up my last post, an unsuccessful shopping trip with our successful shopping trip! Yesterday we went back to Mar Shopping in Faro, to see if we could buy the things we had wanted to buy last week but failed at (see previous post). Lo and behold it was a complete success! We even managed to get a bite to eat this time! For our morning out, I wore a blue outfit.
I would have worn navy blue sandals too but a few days prior to this, I stubbed my little toe so badly, I think I might have fractured it (it’s not the first time—I’m so bloody clumsy!!). So, I had no choice but to wear sandals that weren’t so fitted around that part of my foot. These black sparkly sandals did the trick because they’re a little on the large side. Plus, I don’t think they look too bad with my blue outfit.
These navy denim culottes get worn to death at this time of year because they’re so comfortable and relatively cool. The only thing I really dislike about them is the exposed zip at the front, but I can live with that for a decent pair of culottes. I’ve been on the hunt for a few more pairs lately, but can I find any? Nope. I don’t want frayed or raw edges which seem to be all the rage this year. I’m sure I’ll find some, eventually!
The navy vest (tank) top is one of several I bought last year from Intimissimi. I’ve got it in black (which I wore for the unsuccessful shopping trip last weekend), white, grey and navy. I love them because they have a built-in bra which I think is perfect for when it’s a bit warm. I hate wearing bras in this heat. It’s the first thing to come off whenever I get home lol. Bra and shoes! I’m always wandering around in bare feet (I love to feel grounded).
Speaking of heat, this is what I usually end up doing with my hair—I throw it up into a messy bun just to get it off my neck. There’s nothing worse than a sweaty neck with long hair coiled all around it!
I almost forgot to mention why the shopping trip was successful! We found the perfect pouffe (ottoman or foot stool if you don’t know what a pouffe is) to go in our lounge by our fabulous new leather corner sofa. We also bought a little tray to go in the middle of it, a mini table to use when we’re too lazy to lean forward for our coffee cups (!), a couple of new cushions and, wait for it… six new dining chairs lol! We didn’t need dining chairs but we’ve grown bored of our old ones. So we decided to splash out on something a bit more groovy lol. We also picked up a simple gold/brass standing lamp to go beside the sofa. I’ll take some photos for Monday’s post 🙂
I also got a new pair of Skechers in the sale. I wanted a light pair for summer, and I found a pink pair which were perfect. I’ll show you next week some time. But that’s enough about me, my blue outfit, broken toe and shopping trip. What have you been up to this week?

My favourite last week was Catherine of Not Dressed as Lamb who shared photos from a shoot she did with an old photography colleague (her new Instagram husband), and the results are simply beautiful! Not to mention she’s wearing THE most spectacular tulle skirt with biker boots!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE
