The Portugal Fashion Diaries: Saturday

So 'The Portugal Fashion Diaries' doesn't quite have the same ring to as The Paris Fashion Diaries but hey, that's life! My fashion was much harder to style in Portugal thanks to the 40 Degree heat but I'm not complaining about that with it being my first hot holiday in 5 years. I took my trusted black bodycon dress but as you can guess, I couldn't wear it out as the heat would have been unbearable!



Mustard vest - Primark
Black pleated  skirt - Marks and Spencer
Black wedges - New Look

This was my first outfit of the week, nothing special but I have taken quite a liking to mustard over the past year. You'll have to excuse my pale skin (it was only day one though!). I did unfortunately burn quite badly on day one as I forgot to put lotion on my stomach (stupid I know) so I must emphasize the importance of sunscreen! These New Look wedges pretty much MADE my holiday. I packed 3 pairs of heels but these were the only pair I wore. Whilst on that topic, New Look came to the rescue yet again with my swimsuit. I found it in the summer sale, reduced from £22 to £10 - LAST ONE in MY SIZE. I knew it was fate there and then. As I burnt my stomach so bad, I couldn't wear my lovely bikinis for the rest of the holiday (resulting in a very odd tan across my middle) so it was such a good thing that I brought my New Look swimsuit. It covered up the damage whilst being chic and very Audrey Hepburn.
