If you are looking for a vacation spot filled with culture, history, sightseeing and great food you may want to visit Portugal. I had it on my wish list for few years and finally decided it’s time to check it out. As a destination, Portugal is not as popular as some other European countries, but don’t let this be a deciding factor for you. From the beautiful beaches to endless castles and delicious food, Portugal is the place to be.
My trip started with a stay in the Algarve region and the city of Faro. Faro is the capital of the Algarve and conveniently located to access some of the most beautiful towns around. The old city was the perfect runway for me with its narrow streets and charming buildings. In some previous posts I mentioned that when on vacation I like to remain stylish and don’t compromise on my aesthetics. I know most women want to be comfortable when traveling, but comfort should not exclude style. Staying in a beautiful place like Portugal inspires me and lets me be more creative with my looks.
You know I am the queen of all sales and shopping for vacation is no different. I got a good portion of of my wardrobe from Zara summer sale, including the two dresses I am wearing in this post. For those of you who are not familiar with the sale it goes in few stages and the more stock they have the longer it lasts and the prices drop lower. For some of the really good pieces you have to act fast and buy at the first portion of the sale but if you want the cheap stuff you should wait 3-4 weeks into the sale and this is when I get most of my pieces. The printed dress was $15.99 and the black crochet dress $19.99 down from $99.99 and that was an amazing deal. During the day I wear mostly flats or sandals, My black slip-on flats are probably my very best purchase this summer. I got them at a sample sale for $30.00 down from $228.00 from the Italian brand M.Gemi. The biggest showstopper of my looks however was my red straw bag. Another sample sale purchase for only $30.00, I can’t find the exact one anywhere online but will link few similar options for you below.
