Don’t you just love it when your favorite spring/summer items can successfully make the leap to winter outfits?

I mean…I know I do. Versatile is my middle name. (Aren’t my parents cool…so trendy!)

So I was pumped when I discovered Annebeth’s outfit on Pinterest that would allow me to wear my favorite summer skirt in a new way…with plenty of winter layers to keep me warm!

Long live the denim skirt. ;)

Today’s fun highlights:

  • I’m not sure about the proportion element of this outfit, but I’m posting it anyways, because I love the mix of these classic items for a cool street style look.
  • I’m also not sure how I feel about the results of the election. I’m now at the point where I am accepting them and am cautiously hopeful about the future and the goodness of the general population of America.
  • But believe me, Wednesday was ROUGH. I called my mom bawling during my lunch hour, because I needed an adult to tell me things would be okay. And then I browsed J.Crew at the mall and didn’t buy a single thing!
  • I still believe in the goodness of people, and I still believe that love will prevail. And that’s the last you’ll hear from me about the election. The future is waiting to see what we do next. Let’s get to it.
  • In other (much more light hearted news), one of my best friend’s birthdays is today! Happy last-birthday-in-your-20s, B! We’re spending our weekend in Bloomington, IN this weekend celebrating her and The Husband (who has his own birthday on Sunday….happy early birthday, Love!)! I can’t wait to be back in some of my favorite places with some of my favorite people. Cheers to that!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Lisbon/Portugal Travel Diary

DSC09423

Our next stop was Lisbon in Portugal. We had no idea what to expect from our trip, since we only know a handful of people who have been to Portugal, but what we didn’t really expect was 80+ degrees of summer temperatures in October!

Despite the heat, we really enjoyed all of the sights, sweets, and tile of Lisbon! It’s slowly becoming a more popular European travel destination, but still has a non-touristy feel!

Top Ten Things to Do in Lisbon/Portugal (in the order we did them):

  1. Explore Faster Via a Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus -This is always been my best recommendation in most European cities…the dreaded “tourist” hop-on/hop-off bus. Yes, you look like a tourist on your giant double-decker bus, but isn’t that what we all are when we visit a new/foreign city? These tours help you see the best sites (with some fun facts thrown in) in the city that you are in…and you’ll get there quickly! In Lisbon, the bus will take you out to Belém, which is difficult to get to on your own!
  2. Sample a Pastel del Nata – The tastiest little egg custard pastries (see them in one of my snapshots above) that are basically the national dessert/treat of choice. The best ones (in my opinion) are in Belém, but you can find them everywhere! Best enjoyed warmed with a cappuccino!
  3. Find All the Tile You Can – This should be pretty easy to do, since there are little touches of tile all throughout the city! It’s all over the walls and covering the sidewalks and streets. Apparently, it is super costly to repair when on the ground, and the city has expressed interest in slowly getting rid of it, but the residents just won’t let it go (which I greatly appreciate)!
  4. Take in a Sunset from a Rooftop Bar – A lot of people recommended Park, but I actually prefered the views from Hotel Mundial (though they were both beautiful). Good people, great sangria, and even greater views at sunset!
  5. Try Something Outside of Your Comfort Zone (Foodwise) – Maybe it is octopus salad? Maybe it is cuttlefish stew? Or maybe it is a pastry that you have no idea what is inside of it, because you can’t read Portuguese. Just try it! Worse case scenario? You won’t like it…and you can use your Euros to buy something else!
  6. Hike Up to São Jorge Castle – Lisbon is a lot like San Francisco (hills galore, trolleys, and a Golden Gate-esque bridge), so bring some comfortable walking shoes and hike up some stairs and inclined roads to a Moorish-style castle and gorgeous views of the city.
  7. Explore the Three Neighborhoods – We like our Rick Steves walking tours (no matter what European country we’re in), and he took us through the three neighborhoods  (Rossio, Alfama, and Bairro Alto), each which has its own hidden gems. Lisbon is a great walking city, so if you ever visit, be sure to wind your ways through the hidden alleys/streets.
  8. Listen to Some Fado – The sad and longing musical styling of Portugal. Most commonly, these songs are about the sea or losing someone or something to the sea. We had dinner in a fado restaurant and enjoyed having our seafood with a side of fado songs!
  9. Day Trip It to Sintra – Sintra is a town that is about a 40-minute train ride outside of Lisbon. It has roughly 20 different sites to visit and is definitely worth a day trip (if not even more time)!
  10. Pena Palace – Worth a mention of its own, since it is THE palace (and place) to visit in Sintra (even though the Moorish castle is great too). It was built by the cousin of King Ludwig II (who built Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany), and it basically a Disney castle come to life (see it in the picture directly below). Crazy bright primary colors with tile and carving all over the place! And beyond the castle, the views from the top are great too, and the garden/grounds are gorgeous!

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Banana Republic is killing it in the brooch game lately (check them all out here)! My favorites are the acorn (here) and the little Eiffel Tower (here). Perfect for adding flair to your favorite outfit!
  2. Blogger love of the week: I wasn’t up on the lace-up top/dress trend, unnnnnntil I saw this perfectly-fall look on Krista. Plaid, trendy, and cozy? Yes, yup, yay!
  3. A scallop Kate-Spade-ish wallet? For only $20? That comes in my two favorite colors? Yes, please!
  4. 10 colorful accessories under $100 to get you through the upcoming dark days of winter. Those loafers though! Want. 
  5. It’s waaaaaay too soon to start thinking about warm winter coats, but this one (love the green) looks so comfy and cozy for those cold winter days. Oh, and it is under $100!
  6. I’d like this turtleneck sweater in every single color, please. 
  7. Did Buzzfeed get the best pizza right in your state? Check it out here…and for the record, the best pizza in Indiana is in Bloomington from Mother Bears.
  8. The most perfect plaid shirt is here…ideal for apple picking, pumpkin carving, and for layering in the winter for holiday parties!
  9. The 7 most versatile pieces for your fall 2016 wardrobe…gotta get me a turtleneck, ASAP! 
  10. Give me a skirt (any skirt), and I can probably show you at least 3 different ways to wear it, but this is especially true for solid color skirts. This little beauty is a gorgeous shade of burgundy and would look great with black and white stripes, a black sweater and a oversized scarf, and how they have it styled online (with a monocromatic color scheme). Win!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Hooray for Friday!
  • This week was kind of a blur! We moved offices at work and after working somewhere for 6 years, you kind of get stuck in your ways! This week has definitely been an adjustment! Also, someone fix the ice machine, please. #kthanx
  • Indy has this cool restaurant event that is going on now called Devour Downtown. All the participating restaurants put out a special menu with different types of deals (usually 3-courses for two people for $30), and we love trying new restaurants. If you’re a local, it’s still going on next week, so check out all the menus/participating restaurants here!
  • For those wondering, we hit up The Tap as part of the Devour deal on Wednesday, and it was amazing (get the tenderloin and the berry tiramisu)!
  • This weekend, The Husband is going out of town on Saturday, so I have the WHOLE day to myself! What’s a girl to do? You know, other than take myself out to brunch and blast the new Ingrid Michaelson album on repeat. ;)
