This is an official goodbye to summer! While in Portugal summer continues, in Denmark the cold came to stay. So, I share with you one of my last holiday memories in Portugal; a look that transitions to autumn and leaves behind the long days and warm summer nights. My classes have also returned and I can’t believe this is the last year of my masters!
I’m almost starting classes here in Copenhagen and the cold weather reminds me of how I took for granted the sun during the summer. Today I bring you a look that I wore a lot while I was in Portugal for my holidays. It is a linen dress inspired by the safari style, very practical for warmer days.
This look was inspired by the iconic David Bowie suit for the Aladdin Sane tour in 1973. The jumpsuit black and white stripes and curvy lines can be seen in the skirt I’m wearing and the platform shoes definitely remind us of David Bowie’s.
This is probably one of the looks that meets my daily style the most: jeans, a t-shirt and the iconic Cortez sneakers by Nike. These sneakers were the big inspiration for this look. They were designed in 1968 and first appeared in the Olympic Games of 1972 in Munich.
We are already in the wedding and baptism season! When I was in Portugal in June I went to my cousin’s baptism and with that came the hard task of choosing a dress. I wanted something that I could wear in other occasions and even more casual ones during summer.
Hi everyone! Today I bring you a look inspired by Scandinavia. I had never tried culottes before and I’m now a fan! They are in fact an icon in scandinavian style, which is based on comfort and minimalism without putting aside elegance.
Spring seems to have found its way to Portugal and forgot about Denmark and I’m sure that Summer must get lost on its way here too. Despite the weather, Copenhagen is still a colourful and vibrant city! I’ve been loving living here!
For someone who’s used to Portuguese Winter, Denmark can be a true challenge this time of the year. To keep myself warm, I tried to learn the art of layering (without succeeding, since I always feel like the Michelin man).
I love the 80’s: from music to fashion and big hair! I feel really inspired by this decade and so I’ve decided to create a look influenced by the big parties of that time!
2018 is just about to start and so is my new blog. Yes, the Chérie in the City blog is going to evolve into something I have been envisioning for a while! I am really excited and hope to continue to share my journey with you soon!
