Rome Look 2: Via Veneto


VIA VENETO. Without a doubt one of the prettiest streets in Rome! So much elegance and glamour in one area.
I bought this skirt in the beginning of the winter season and think it fit in perfectly with the plaid/tartan trend that came back to life this year. Skirts with this type of print are extremely practical and versatile! 
How are you enjoying the last few days of the year, check in tomorrow morning for a review post of the main trends and pictures which inspired my fashion choices this year!

Rome Look 1: Céline


CÉLINE! As you can see by the title... this big purchase did happen!!! I am over the moon with happiness! A Céline bag has been an object of adoration of mine for the longest time. The first time I remember seeing one was back in 2011 and instantly falling in love. Over the years, it continued as a growing passion. I would stalk all tumblr blogs dedicated to this bag and simply fan-girl over anyone I saw wearing one. This bag to me is a symbol of elegance. You can wear the simplest combination of clothing and with this bag you look is complete. Need I say anymore... it is a Céline bag! Even going into the store was so unexpected, I can't begin to thank my parents enough!
This was too big of a moment not to share it with all of you, as this is a fashion blog, I though it was appropriate. 
Wait until the following outfit posts to find out what it looks like... suspense... :)
As you can guess already, my first day in Rome was a success. This city is amazing! Beautiful views and monuments everywhere you look, and lets not even get into the food... which is A-MA-ZING.

I am such a makeup lover! When the autumn/winter season comes around I take every chance to switch things up a bit when it comes to products and colors. For the christmas season I find it inevitable not to gravitate towards slightly darker tones and never leaving behind a great red lipstick. So here are some of my top 'christmas season' picks for lips, face and eye makeup.

London Look 6: Autumn Hat




Finally my last look from my London trip. I miss it so much already, I can't wait to be back!
Autumn hats are one of my favorite things for this time of the year. Although I don't really wear a lot as I spend most time in school, whenever I'm traveling or during weekends, they become staple pieces to my outfits. Its a great way to add some color or just to polish up your look :)

London Look 4: Slip Dress


LACE DETAILS. I'm staring of the weekend by sharing with you my forth London look featuring this lace-detailed dress which is so in trend right now. This slip-dress kind of look has been hitting stores ever since Louis Vuitton debuted their winter collection. It is something rather different to what I'm used to wearing but since I was in one of the fashion capitals I decided to give it a try! 
Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

London Look 3: Bow-Tie



I'm obsessed with this bow-tie from ZARA! I love how its a different accessory from the typical necklace, adding a special touch. Another new find was this tartan coat which fits so well into the whole 'tartan winter trend'. Hope november is going great so far for everyone!

London Look 2: Before the Rain




A few quick pictures shot moments before it began to heavily rain... ah english weather! Although it did rain on a few occasions, we were generally very lucky with the weather.
I'm now back in Portugal and ready to share with you the rest of my London Looks, so keep checking in for that.
Have a lovely weekend!

Algumas rápidas fotografias tiradas antes de começar uma chuva forte... ah este tempo inglês! Embora tenha chovido em algumas ocasiões, em geral tivemos bastante sorte com o tempo. 
Já estou de volta a Portugal e preparada para vos mostrar o resto dos meus looks de Londres.
Espero que tenham um óptimo fim de semana!

London Look 1: Fall Floral


One of my looks worn out and about London. One of my recent purchases was the 'Babyliss Curl Secret' which created these curls for me. This is the invention women around the world were expecting in the hair-styling department! It helps you achieve easy-looking curls without taking up one hour of your getting ready time. HERE is a video of how it works! The curls lasted all day without needing any hair spray (surprisingly- as my hair is quite straight). Definitely recommended!

Insta: London Weekend


Hey everyone! Quick update from London...
I'll be staying here for one week as I'm on my half-term holidays. The purpose of this trip is to visit universities and get an idea of the possible one I'll be attending next year... scary thought. Although I'm  busy running around with school work I'll do my best to find time to take outfit pictures and keep you all updated with my instagram posts (@luizagrinberg). Here you have my first selection of pictures from saturday and sunday.
Hope that those of you who are on holiday had a great start to them!

Bow Details


I'm definitely a very girly girl that takes a much greater liking to dresses and skirts, therefore I'm taking in every opportunity to wear them I can, while the weather still allows. The weather in Lisbon has been great for so far for October, apart from a few rainy days it has been generally very sunny and warm :) 
Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

SKATÈR


In the 'HOMIÈS' themed script here is a new shirt I picked out this weekend at ZARA, one of my all time favorite stores as you all know by now. I was really pleased with the result of these pictures as I thought the natural lighting was good, plus there was no wind... which always makes it uncomfortable when taking pictures.
Hope you liked it and had a great start to the week :)

No mesmo estilo deste meu gorro a ZARA decidiu investir em gráficos parecidos. Fiquei contente com o resultado destas fotografias, a luz natural estava ideal e o facto de não estar muito ventoso ajudou imenso... é sempre desconfortável fazer fotografias ao vento!
Espero que tenham gostado e que tenham tido um bom começo de semana :)

BW



BLACK AND WHITE has been a major trend this year, specially for summer. You can either mix both colors up or have black or white total looks. Today I went for a mixture, with a few extra touches :) 
I also remind you all that New York fashion Week has officially started! Remember to keep checking the official SITE for frequent updates.

PRETO E BRANCO tem sido uma grande tendência do verão deste ano. As duas cores podem ser usadas juntas ou em looks monocromáticos. Hoje, optei por uma combinação dos dois, com alguns toques extras :)
Relembro-vos que o New York Fashion Week já começou! Mantenham-se informados através do SITE oficial.

HOMIÈS


Happy sunday everyone! Today, sadly, is my last day of holidays, tomorrow everything goes back to reality :( Preparing for my final year at school feels very different, but hopefully it will be a great one. Talking about this look... I have found a new love for beanies! If you follow me on instagram you will also have seen I got two other ones which I'm obsessing about. Best of luck for everybody going back to school tomorrow!

Feliz domingo a todos! Hoje, infelizmente, é o meu último dia de férias. Amanhã tudo volta ao normal :( É muito estranho pensar que vai ser o meu último ano na escola! 
Falando deste look... estou a adorar 'beanies'! Se me seguem no instagram já podem ter visto que comprei dois outros que também mal posso esperar para usar . 
Boa sorte a todos que regressam às aulas amanhã!

ZARA Fall/Winter '13 Campaign


Article in English only but feel free to translate!

If you have found yourself going into ZARA lately, you will most likely have spotted this year's fall/winter theme... PUNK. ZARA has hit the mark right on point and exceeded all my expectations for this new collection. I'm absolutely in love with so many of their new pieces and can't wait to do some great back to school shopping. I'm also very pleased to see tartan and this old-school british feel come back to incorporate grungy looks. Fall/winter fashion tip: don't be afraid to mix up patterns. As you can see floral and checkered print have been making a huge appearance everywhere.
I adore this TRF campaign and the women's one is amazing as well so here is the link if you want to check it out- WOMEN's CAMPAIGN
What do you think about the fall/winter theme? Let me know in the comments!

Another Sunset


Continuing in this more boho vibe here is a look I wore yesterday... I can't believe August is coming to an end and so are my holidays, time really does fly! Thanks for all your comments!

O meu look de ontem... Nem acredito que Agosto está prestes a acabar, o que significa que logo retorno à escola. Esperemos que o tempo passe tão rápido assim durante o resto do ano!

Avenida da Liberdade



Enjoying relaxed summer days out in the city is one of my favorite ways to spend my holidays! Yesterday I did just that in Avenida da Liberdade, the most influential and famous avenue in Lisbon when it comes to luxury brands. It is such a pleasant place to just walk around and check out the stores! I of course couldn't help pick up some items here and there, which I may show in a future post if would like to see that... leave me comments :)
In terms of outfit, I'm so happy to have found a playsuit i liked! Wearing this type of outfit takes me right back to my childhood years when playsuits were an essential. My sunglasses are an exact replica of a MiuMiu pair, except these can be found at a much more affordable price at FREYRS.

Aproveitar dias tranquilos pela cidade é uma das minhas maneiras favoritas de passar estes dias de férias. Ontem foi isso mesmo que fiz, na Avenida da Liberdade. Para quem é Português de certeza conhece, porém se não for, a Avenida da Liberdade é a principal avenida de Lisboa quando de e trata de marcas de luxo.
Falando do meu look, fiquei muito contente de ter encontrado um playsuit que goste na TOPSHOP, durante a minha estadia em Inglaterra. Este tipo de playsuit lembra-me imenso o tipo de roupa que costumava usar quando pequena! 
Podem encontrar os meus óculos na FREYRS.

Boyfriend Jeans


During the summer months wearing trousers is generally big 'No' for me but ever since the boyfriend jeans trend came back to life I've changed my mind. They are loose fitting which makes them much more comfortable than the average pair of skinny jeans. The tip is always to wear them rolled up at the bottom to show your ankles a little bit, giving it a summery feel.

Durante os meses de verão não costumo usar calças, porém desde que a tendência de 'boyfriend' jeans voltou, tive que aderir. Este modelo de calças é bastante mais confortável pelo facto de serem mais largas e leves. Uma dica é de sempre usá-las com a bainha ligeiramente dobrada, assim deixa um look descontraído e com ar de verão.

Green Park


After taking a break from blogging I'm back to posting! I'm back in Lisbon to spend a couple more days and later this week heading to the Alentejo to enjoy the rest of my holidays with friends, can't wait! 
I absolutely loved my time in England, both in London and Cambridge where I studied for 2 weeks. Although I really enjoy traveling, coming back home is really great too!

Depois de uma pausa no blog, estou de volta! Já estou de volta a Lisboa até ao final da semana, depois vou para o Alentejo, aproveitar o resto das férias com os meus amigos.
Diverti-me imenso durante a minha estadia em Inglaterra, ambos em Londres e Cambridge onde estudei durante duas semanas. Embora adorar viajar, voltar para a nossa casa também é sempre bom!

London Bound


Yesterday was an amazing day spent in London with a group of friends. We tried to pack as many activities as we could into one day to make the most of it. Places we visited include: Harrods, Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park, Bond Street and Buckingham Palace. By the end of the day I could barely walk! It was so much fun to be in London again, a city I absolutely love.

Ontem passei um dia fantástico em Londres com um grupo de amigos. Tentamos incluir o máximo número de actividades em um dia para aproveitá-lo bastante. Visitamos sítios como: a Harrods, Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park, Bond Street e o Buckingham Palace. Ao final do dia já nem conseguia sentir os pés de tanto andar! Foi muito divertido estar em Londres mais uma vez, uma cidade que adoro.

New In: Ear Cuffs and Rings


If you follow me on instagram (@luizagrinberg) you will have seen I posted a picture of these three new additions to my accessory stash. I had been looking for ear cuffs for a while now (and was thinking of ordering some online) and was happily surprised to see that my beloved ZARA decided to make some of their own. I'm also happy to see them come out with these mid-finger rings. Can't wait to wear these around!
What are your must have accessories for the summer, let me know!

Se me seguem no instagram (@luizagrinberg) podem ter visto um fotografia que postei destes meus novos acessórios. Já há algum tempo que procuro este tipo de 'brinco' e estes anéis! Se gostaram, dêem uma volta pela ZARA que encontram acessórios lindos de certeza! 
Quais são os vossos acessórios preferidos para o verão? Let me know!

Blue My Mind


Some pictures taken a few days ago wearing the famous ZARA skorts! These take me right back to my first school's uniform, in which we had this type of bottoms and coincidently, it was blue too!
After some bipolarity in the weather I'm glad it seems to have warmly stabilized... bring on the beach days! 
How have you all been spending your holidays? Thank you for all your comments!

Fotografias de alguns dias atrás, usando estes famosos 'skorts' (skirt/shorts) da ZARA. Estes lembram-me imenso o uniforme da minha primeira escola, que coincidentemente, também era azul!
Depois de alguma 'bipolaridade' no tempo, ele parece estar mais estável... por isso vamos aproveitar dias de praia!
Como têm passado as vossas férias? Muito obrigada pelos vossos comentários!

Bye Bye GFC- Hello Bloglovin!



Hey everyone! You may have heard the news that Google Reader is shutting down and along with it goes Google Friend Connect. Good news is there is another extremely easy way to keep updated with your favorite blogs called Bloglovin, which most of you may have heard of.
It is very easy to use and frankly I prefer it rather than Google Friend Connect. All you need to do is create your bloglovin account and use this link to import all the blogs you follow (on GFC)  to your bloglovin!
Im sure you won't be disappointed with bloglovin as it is an amazing platform for blog reading. Remember to follow me over there and stay updated for many news coming for you in the next month :)

Muitos de vocês já devem saber porém queria vos relembrar que foi anunciado o término do Google Reader. Com isso, perdemos o Google Friend Connect. A solução? O Bloglovin! 
O bloglovin, na minha opinião, é a plataforma mais simples de leitura de blogs. Se ainda não têm uma conta, é muito fácil criar, e depois podem facilmente importar todos os seus blogs preferidos (os que já seguem com o GFC) através deste link.
Não se esqueçam de me seguir e aguardem novidades neste mês de julho :)

Cabo Verde




4 days in paradise went by way too fast! I've just arrived and already feel like going back. It is in times like these that I realize how important it is to enjoy days away from your everyday routine. Being away from a computer, school, work amongst others was absolutely great and certainly very resting, although we did do some community service with local schools :) 
I just have a couple more days of school until my holidays and I can't wait for them to start so I can keep up more frequent updates! Leave me a comment below if you have any posts you would like to see around here :)

4 dias no paraíso passaram rápido demais! É em dias como estes, que me apercebo da importância de viajar e descansar um pouco da nossa rotina. Foram dias de muito descanso embora também termos ajudado numa escola primária e visitámos bairros sociais. 
Agora só me restam alguns dias de escola, mal posso esperar para as minhas férias! Embora tenha bastante trabalho para completar, as férias vão me permitir muito mais tempo para posts frequentes :)

New In - ZARA Metallic Oxfords



Hi everyone! Just came to very quickly post this amazing new find of mine from ZARA and to let you know I will be traveling for a few days to Cabo Verde! I've been very excited about this trip for months  because i'll be going with two of my closest friends. I'm of course taking my camera and will try my best to frequently update :)

Tangerine Chic


Today's look is a little more polished, I just couldn't help making this a more formal look due to the cut and form of this amazing tangerine-colored jacket. Here you can spot another one of my favorites... chunky pearl necklace from ZARA. After purchasing the one from this post, I couldn't resist getting this one too! 
Last key piece to the look is my mother's amazing 'Salvatore Ferragamo' purse. It is just to-die-for, so elegant and me! I'm so happy I have a mother who doesn't mind sharing items :)

A look de hoje é um pouco mais formal. Tenho tendência a gostar de peças mais clássicas, e devido ao corte deste novo casaco da ZARA, não pude evitar um look mais composto.
Estou a usar uma nova peça favorita entre os meus acessórios... colares de pérolas grandes. Depois de ter adorado o deste post, não resisti a comprar este também.
Uma outra peça importantíssima deste look, é esta mala 'Salvatore Ferragamo' da minha Mãe. Muito elegante e versátil!

Put on Your Summer Jacket


Florals for spring/summer? Groundbreaking. As my beloved Miranda Priesly (from Devil Wears Prada- for those who didn't get the reference) would have put it. However, reality is, floral blazers have been all over, and I love them. I think it provides jackets with a lighter twist, enabling them to perfectly transition for those windier summer nights. Here is my selection from two of my favorite stores- TOPSHOP (1st picture) and ZARA (2nd + 3rd picture). 
What are your thoughts on this trend? Would you wear a floral blazer? Let me know in the comments :)

É certo que estampas florais para o verão não são a coisa mais inovadora possível, porém na maioria das vezes um clássico nunca sai de moda. Eu adoro este tipo de casacos, acho que a estampa floral da um ar mais leve, o que os deixa muito adequados para aquelas noites mais ventosas de verão. Aqui está a minha selecção de alguns dos meus preferidos, das lojas TOPSHOP (primeira fotografia) e ZARA (segunda e terceira fotografia).
O que acham desta tendência? :)

Floral Dress to Celebrate


Finally the warmer weather seems to have stabilized around the Lisbon area and I can finally start pulling my dresses out of my wardrobe! Exam season is over... at least for this year, which means more time available for frequent updates :)
Also, how amazing are these cat-eye sunglasses from 'Zero-Uv' as soon as I received them I fell in love! They have such a simple, but retro-chic to vibe to them.
Hope you're all enjoying this sunny weekend!

Finalmente temos um tempo mais agradável, o que quer dizer que posso deixar de lado as calças e começar a usar mais vestidos! Outra boa noticia é o facto de já ter acabado os exames... embora ainda tenha 1 mês de aulas. Mesmo assim, quer dizer que vou ter mais tempo para dedicar a posts :)
Estou apaixonada por estes óculos cat-eye que recebi da 'Zero-Uv'! São simples mas ao mesmo tempo dão um toque muito 'retro-chic'.
Espero que estejam todos a aproveitar o vosso fim de semana!

Color Burst


With this lovely weather I couldn't wait to get my colorful combinations out. I'm a definitely a lover of neon, and love mixing different pieces together. This summer you don't have to be afraid of mixing colors in a single look, as long as the pieces are made up of one color only! Be careful when mixing patterns so it isn't mistaken for some old patchwork piece :)
From today on, its likely that the posts will be coming in less frequently as I'll need all the time I can get to focus on getting studying done for my final exams on the last week of may. Wish me luck!!

Com este optimo tempo que tem feito, não pude resistir a usar combinações cheias de cor. Eu adoro neons e acho que ficam muito bem quando misturados. Neste verão, não tenham medo de misturar várias cores vivas no mesmo look, desde que as peças forem de uma só cor. É preciso ter atenção quando se mistura padrões, não queremos parecer que estamos a usar umas peças antigas de patchwork! :)
A partir de hoje, os posts virão com menos frequencia pois tenho mesmo de me concentrar e estudar para os meus exames na ultima semana de maio. Wish me luck!!

Phillip Lim - Target's New Guest Designer



Over the years, Target has had various collaborations with respectful designers but this year, they have really outdone themselves! They collaborated with Prabal Gurung in spring and now Philip Lim is going to debut his collection on the September 15th.
The collection is set to be around 100 pieces and the prices will be under $50. There will be clothing, bags, shoes and travel accessories all in the style of the much acclaimed designer. Target promises us "a classic fall palette of neutral tones with a mix of basic prints".
Although the images of the collection won't be available until the summer, the company has released a teaser of collection. 
Personally I cannot wait to see the collection, I know that Philip Lim is a wonderful designer and anything he comes up with, will be to die for!

Com o passar dos anos a Target já colaborou com vários designers conceituados e este ano não foi nenhuma excepção. Eles já colaboraram com o Prabal Gurung na primavera deste ano e agora com o Philip Lim, lançarão a nova colecção no dia 15 de Setembro.

Free People May 2013 Catalog


How gorgeous are these pictures?! I just find them so incredibly captivating... maybe because the scenery brings me back good memories, but overall I think the May campaign for Free People is just so fresh, relaxed and amazing! Makes me wish I was there right now with a group of friends too... and not studying for finals... joy.
Also check out the short movie they did to accompany the campaign here.

Adorei a campanha de Maio da loja Free People. Gostei tanto que senti que tinha de vos mostrar! A escolha de scenario não podia ter sido mais adequada, pois o estilo de roupa da Free People encaixa perfeitamente com a atitude descontraída que se encontra no Rio de Janeiro. Que saudades de lá estar :)
Vejam o video que acompanha esta campanha aqui.

My Birthday in Pictures!

Hey everyone! As yesterday was my birthday (17 wohooo... I'm seriously getting old!) I had absolutely zero time to shoot any looks, however I obviously took many pictures along the way to document and share with you the amazing day I had :)
I want to thank everyone so much for making this an absolutely incredible day and to say that I couldn't be more fortunate with the friends and family I have, who made it so special!
Here are some of the pictures...

Olá a todos! Como ontem fiz anos (17 wohoo.. já estou a ficar velha!) Não tive tempo nenhum para tirar fotografias ao que vestia, porém fui tirando várias fotografias ao longo do dia para documentar e partilhar com vocês o dia fantástico que passei :)
Queria agradecer a todos por terem tornado este um dia incrível e que não podia ter mais sorte com os amigos e família que tenho!
Aqui estão as fotografias...

Pantone Color of the Year: Emerald


Hey all! Apologies for the lack of posts this week... school life has taken away a lot of my free time lately! Today I was finally able to shoot again in this windy afternoon which quickly ruined the curls I attempted to hold with tons of hairspray :)
This outfit was dedicated to the Pantone Colour of the Year of 2013: EMERALD. I'm sure most of you have heard of Pantone as they release a new color every year plus a lot of merchandizing... if you don't know what I'm talking about click here to learn more!
Also, I just joined google friend connect so go and follow me here or by clicking the gadget in the sidebar.

Olá a todos! Peço desculpas pela falta de looks esta semana... a vida de estudante não tem sido fácil! Hoje finalmente consegui fazer algumas fotografias nesta tarde muito ventosa, que rapidamente estragou os meus caracóis no cabelo que tentei aguentar com quilos de spray :)
Este look de hoje foi dedicado à cor do ano definida pela Pantone: ESMERALDA. Provavelmente muitos já ouviram falar desta companhia que anualmente define qual será a cor de destaque de cada ano. Leiam mais sobre a Pantone aqui.
Juntei-me recentemente ao google friend connect então agora também podem me seguir aqui!

Glasses and Cameras


How awesome is this little camera bag from the shop 'New Order' and these patterned green trousers?! I've had this bag for years and always find myself wearing it in occasions where only the essentials (aka: phone) is needed as not too much fits in it. I find it super adorable!
The other standout item in this look are my green trousers from 'ZARA'. These are the definition of a 'lucky find'! When these were out in their summer collection of '12, I remember thinking they were interesting, but wasn't too invested in buying them. After a few weeks I kept thinking back to them and decided to get them, only to find out they were already sold out everywhere. I ended up forgetting about them for a while, but it was when the post-christmas shopping sales came along that they re-appeared on the racks and by sheer luck there was only one pair of them and in my size! We were destined to be together haha :)

O que acham desta malinha de máquina fotográfica da loja 'New Order' e destas calças verdes estampadas?!
Já tenho esta mala há alguns anos e acabo por usá-la mais frequentemente em ocasiões onde somente o necessário (o meu telemóvel) é preciso porque devido ao seu pequeno tamanho não cabe lá muita coisa.
A segunda peça de destaque deste look são as minhas calças verdes da 'ZARA'. Estas calças foram realmente uma história de sorte. Quando estas estavam à venda na colecção de verão de '12, lembro-me de ter gostado, mas não o suficiente para comprá-las. Depois de algumas semanas em que pensei varias vezes sobre elas, decidi comprá-las, porém fiquei logo desapontada em saber que já estavam esgotadas em todas as lojas. Esqueci-me delas durante um tempo, mas foi durante os saldos após o natal que as vi penduradas, e por muita sorte só haviam umas e no meu número! Era mesmo para ser minha :)

Coachella Weekend



Hey everyone! As most of you must know this weekend there was the Coachella Music festival in Palm Springs. This is a festival which attracts people, including celebrities from all over the world to attend the amazing shows, plus to show off some amazing style. 
If I could describe the style that dominates this event in three words I would say it is a mixture between: vintage/hippie/retro... if you get the image I'm trying to explain... :)
Here are some pictures I took from some of my favorite blogger's Instagram's so you can get an idea of how the atmosphere there is like.

Olá a todos! Como muitos de vocês devem saber, neste fim de semana aconteceu o festival de musica 'Coachella' em Palm Springs, CA. Este festival atrai pessoas, incluindo celebridades, do todo o mundo para acompanhar os shows muito animados e mostrarem muito estilo
Eu diria que o estilo que domina este evento é uma mistura entre vintage/hippie e retro (como poderão perceber nas fotografias abaixo)... :)
Aqui estão algumas fotografias que tirei do instagram de algumas das minhas bloggers preferidas, para terem uma ideia do ambiente deste festival.



   Song of Style-




   Peace Love Shea-




   Chiara Ferragni-



   Chriselle Lim-



Lots of Love
