...oh how things change in a week!

last week I was having a love affair with shorts, t shirts and sunshine in lisbon. today I'm writing this post in a giant roll neck, jeans and furry socks, dang.

life has been really hectic the last few months so I was really looking forward to relaxing and working my way through books that have been on my 'to read list' all year! we stayed in a villa just outside of lisbon so we could laze by the pool on quiet days or drive into the capital if we fancied a day exploring the busy streets. I would definitely recommend lisbon for a city break; from the eclectic tiled buildings to the addictive nata pastries it's easy to while away an afternoon shopping, eating and people watching.

the weather was lovely so I kept things simple wearing a basic black t shirt dress with some delicate layered jewellery (.....and shoes guaranteed not to give me blisters!)

it's not all bad to be home though.. don't tell anyone but I've been secretly excited about the return of jumper weather and cosy winter coats ..roll on dark nights and excessive hot chocolate consumption!

back soon!
