Holiday Lookbook part one: summer stripes

Olá from Portugal! I wasn’t planning on blogging out here but it’s sweltering today and I have a ton of holiday outfit posts to schedule, so might as well get cracking. I’m currently sat in the shade on our balcony and I’m literally melting – whoever said that women don’t sweat is an absolute liar! Soz. I’ll do a Portugal travel guide and villa tour when we’re back in the UK, but for now here’s one of my favourite holiday looks so far. These shorts are a bloomin’ dream – I picked them up when Nathan and I went on a road trip to Lisbon for a few days last week (I basically left most of my clothes at the villa and it was either a case of going shopping or wearing the same pair of shorts for 5 days…plus it’s not like I need much of an excuse to shop so…)

I popped in to Pull & Bear and it’s definitely a shop I need to visit more often! I managed to somehow control myself but I could’ve bought the whole place. Three reasons why these shorts have become my holiday staple: 1) they’re so light and breezy so no sweaty bum for me, 2) loving the cute stripes and the fact they’re high waisted and 3) er hello stretchy waistband for ALL of the food. And all of the cocktails (note to anyone going to Portugal – their mojitos are not only amazing but incredibly strong. Expect to plait your legs all the way home!) I’ve paired these shorts with a white crop top which I’m hoping shows off the tiny bit of a tan I’ve got! And my trusty straw hat for ultra holiday vibes, of course.

Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend guys and girls. Sending some Portuguese sunshine to you! Follow me on Insta if you just can’t get enough and want to see more of my travels/what we’re getting up to in Portugal! (It’s basically sun and cocktails at the moment, but we’re off on another little road trip tomorrow so stay tuned…)
