Star dress, sunnies and fun in Lisbon




I was in Portugal two weeks ago for a couple of days. While visiting family and friends there was still time for making some pictures with Lphotografyright before catching my flight back to the Netherlands.

Lisbon was beautiful as always and we had some really good time while making this shoot. Luis, the photographer, is absolutely passionate about his work and a really nice guy to shoot with. So despite me always being so shy in front of the camera, I’m really pleased with the result. About the look, this is really a simple outfit. I was spending the day shopping around and walking with my suitcase so I chose to wear something comfortable. I already have this dress for a while and I love that it can be used in so many different ways. Really, just change shoes and you have an outfit for every occasion with this dress. I opted for my comfy sneakers because with them no matter how much I need to walk my feet will always be happy. And since I still needed to take a flight that day (which actually got delayed by 5 hours!) I was really happy with my choice. The weather was a bit more friendly this day than the first days I spent in Portugal and so I could wear my biker jacket instead of my winter coat. This is also my first shoot ever with sunnies. I have this super small face kinda problem, that makes any sunglasses look huge on me, so I sometimes avoid to wear them. Which is sad, because I love sunglasses. I decided to give it a try this time, and I think it is quite fun. What do you think? I know I know, they’re still big, but really, have you seen petite sunglasses for sale? If yes write me asap!

      Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comment! :)

      It’s funny actually because I was also born in Coimbra and my parents still live nearby there. The world is really small haha
