Check mate

Outfit: Waistcoat - Cancer research, originally Topshop, Shorts, Vest - H&M, Bag-TK Maxx, Wedges- ebay, Belt - Primark


It seems that every summer there are several recurring trends; bohemia, florals, lightwashed denim and safari. I picked this checkered, earthy infused waistcoat up in the Cancer Research shop back in April and have worn it multiple times since. The various shades of the safari trend including khaki, mocha, beige and coffee act as a perfect alternative to the girly creams and pastels of the current season. As is my usual tendency, I belted it around the waist and paired it with my only summertime wedges- these brown leather ones.

Oh really? When will you come to Lisbon?
Well, Lisbon is such a magical city. Full of history and culture. You need to visit our Downtown - shops (Zara, H&M, Bershka, Pull and Bear, Springfield a lot more..), Chiado it's near the downtown (more shops) Avenue of Liberty (Avenida da Liberdade), the St. Jorge Castle and Belém where you have the planetarium, Jerónimos Monastery and a lot of stuff. Ohh you have a starbucks in Belem and in Chiado. You should go to Alfama (a typical portuguese village) and to Bairro Alto and Alcantara (it's where the partys and great discos are)

Hope I could help you.

Keep following
Love, johanna

Hi Robbie!

Love your blog, I found it on Cupcakes and Cashmere :) This bag is amazingly right along the lines of what I'm looking for in a new bag - do you know what brand it is? I also really love that you're supporting cancer research... nothing makes an outfit sweeter!
