This is my look from Paris from last week where I went for Men’s Fashion Week. I love wearing co-ords, especially during summer, when you don’t have to worry about many layers and cold. The red top and skirt is from Staud which you can get in Net-A-Porter.

I photographed this look on the second day in Lisbon. It was sunny and very warm as for April, so I could wear proper summery clothes and don’t get cold. The jacket is from Ganni, I love its cropped shape, makes the look very 90’s. I matched it with the Reformation skirt and Apart jewellery. This time in silver which is rare for me, because I usually go for gold.

It was my first time in Portugal. I’ve been looking forward to my trip a lot, but I didn’t expect I will fall in love that much. I arrived on Sunday night and went for a first walk at midnight in Bairro Alto. I saw a lot of oldschool local bars with live music, young people dancing, drinking, smoking and just having fun. The vibe was unique, reminded me of something between Berlin ( my biggest surprise) , Barcelona, Paris and Cracow, but better. I’m not a party girl type, but if I lived in Lisbon, I’d be out every weekend. The next day I did my first walk during the daylight. I was impressed even more. I loved the architecture in Lisbon, it’s beautiful, sweet because of colorful houses but also edgy in the same time – there were a lot of street art , old school cafes, restaurant or laundries ( laundries in different cities always make the vibe cooler in my opinion) . We got lost in little streets of Bairro Alto which were literally empty. I passed by maybe one or two guide trips and the rest were just local people doing their normal everyday duties. That’s what I like the most, watching local people, how they live, what’s their lifestyle etc. I’ll say it again I was in love.
Now I want to tell you about the place I stayed when in Lisbon. Flora Chiado Apartments, located in the old town, walking distance to everywhere. My apartment was huge, with two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room and a huge kitchen, better equipped than mine in London. Every morning we got a delivery of fresh rolls and croissants. I kinda like to prepare breakfast by myself and enjoy it in my own balcony with a view to Lisbon rooftops. That makes me feel more like a local, rather than a tourist. I highly recommend you to stay in Flora Chiado Apartments, even if you’re visiting the city just for a short time, as me.
