African Prints ZARA 2014

The new Spring collection of Zara is simply fantastic, because of the variety of colors, textures and patterns. But what caught my attention in this collection was the presence of African prints. 
It has some time that traditional African clothing has been a presence in fashion, but the fact is that it is still very difficult to access this type of clothing in stores, so you need to buy the fabric and ask some seamstress to make the clothes you want. So I love the fact that now I can buy these pieces at Zara. I especially like the combination of these patterns with smooth, minimalist pieces.


A nova colecção de Primavera da Zara é simplesmente fantástica, pela variedade de cores, texturas e padrões. Mas o que mais me chamou a atenção nesta colecção foi a presença de padrões africanos. 
Há muito que a roupa tradicional africana tem vindo a marcar presença na moda, mas o facto é que ainda é muito difícil ter acesso a este tipo de roupa nas lojas, e é preciso comprar o tradicional pano e mandar fazer alguma peça numa costureira. Por isso adoro o facto de poder comprar estas peças na Zara. Gosto principalmente da combinação destes padrões com peças lisas e minimalistas.

Midi Skirt

Today I'm wearing a pink midi skirt. I was searching for a full midi skirt for a long time, but I didn't find one that actually fits me, so I sewed my own skirt, and I love it. It makes me feel so glamorous!! I thought that a midi skirt wouldn´t be great on me because I am a short girl, but with this heels I think it actually makes me taller. 

Hope you like it!!

Mrs Carter in Portugal

Last night Beyonce was in Lisbon for an amazing concert. And this time I was there! My seats were too far from the stage, and I couldn´t see her very well, but.....anyway...I was there so I danced, jumped, screamed, sang, clapped, cried like a crazy.....and I had a lot of fun.

She is definitely a Diva. Her voice and her power is incredible. I wish she had sung my favourite songs "If I were a boy" an "Listen". But her new songs like "Flawless" and "XO" really rocked on stage.

I loved every single outfits, especially the first one (Tom Ford dress) and the Tartan look.

She really got something....and it isn't just about her beauty and her voice.......she is an inspiration for all the women who work hard to be respected in this men´s world.

"Because I am a female, I am expected to aspire to marriage,I am expected to make my choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Marriage can be... a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don't teach boys the same?"

Next time I´ll be there again!!

I never get tired of animal print...it´s a classic print. 
Today I´m wearing a pencil skirt with a black  blouse and nude sandals, just to go out for a walk....but I actually wear it to go to office ( with another shoes ). 

Hope you like it!!

Look....my cat is always messing around...seems it like to be in the picture.

It's my birthday

Yesterday was my birthday. I can't believe I am 30 years old now. I thought I would feel different ...but I am still feeling like I´m a little girl. 

Remember my wishlist from the previous post? It´s all about pink, nude and a classic romantic style. I bought these nude heels on Zara and the pink blouse on Primark, and I am wearing it with a lace skirt. Now that I am thirty I don´t wanna be to much girly but I want to stay feminine.

So, I am very happy ....because of my birthday.....because spring is comming....and because I won a ticket to Beyoncé´s concert as a birthday gift.....Yeahhhh...Í´m going to Mrs Carter Show World Tour 2014.!!!!!

And because it´s Carnaval.....

Have a nice day :)

Black Fur

Hello!! Here´s my outfit of the last saturday: a black (faux) fur vest, a midi skirt, a denim shirt and ankle boots. Maybe those boots with the midi skirt makes my legs shorter, but I love it anyway:)

This time I decided to spend some time on makeup....what do you think ? It´s too much?

I´ve been away from my blog for a few days because I´ve been so much busy moving to a new house and with the holidays that I didn´t have time to blogging. But now I am back and I have so much ideas to start this new year in a good way and .....with a lot of style.

This year I ´m gonna celebrate my 30th anniversary and maybe it´s time to change my style ....and change my life. I am older but I am more confident and feeling prettier than ever....just like every women should feel about themselves.

These are my goals for 2014
- Travel (..to London)
- Exercise regularly
- Start an Online Business
- Post regularly on my blog
- Learn makeup techniques 
- Make clothes / use the sewing machine more often
- Make a radical style change  (maybe try an afro hairstyle)

Pied de Poule

Está de volta o clássico estampado preto e branco "Pied de Poule". depois de muito procurar por uma peça de roupa com este estampado, escolhi este vestido de corte clássico e cintura marcada. Infelizmente não consegui tirar fotos sem o casaco porque está muuuito frio. Espero que gostem também dos acessórios...o colar é uma peça feita por mim :)


The classic  black and white print "Pied de Poule" is back. After a long search for a garment with this stamped I chose this classic dress. Unfortunately I could not take pictures without the jacket because it is sooooo cold. I hope you also enjoy the accessories ... the necklace is a piece made by me :)

xx, Joana
