Lisbon Bound

After all the back-and-forth, trying to pick a spot in Italy or France for the second half of our European vacation, we finally decided........... on Portugal!  I know, I know, it wasn't originally in the mix, but we wanted to be on the coast and neither of us have been to Portugal, so it seemed like a good compromise.  Now that the trip is nearly here, I am starting to think of what I am going to pack (we're limiting ourselves to 1 large bag and 1 small carry-on, so a girl's gotta plan!).

I picked up the black and creme bold-print maxi skirt for $15 at H&M on Saturday.  I'm planning on pairing it with a simple black tank and sandals, but dress it up with a bold necklace.  I also love to wear brighter colors when I am in a warm-weather destination, and this patterned top would be perfect with a pair of relaxed paperbag-waisted shorts and some cheery yellow sandals.

What are some of your outfit choices for a warm-weather vacation?

Outfit 1: Top | Shorts | Sandals | Bracelet
Outfit 2:  Skirt | Tank | Sandals | Necklace


  1. We are headed to the beach next month, so I recently picked up a few warm weather pieces too :-) I got a great knit skirt from F21 that will be a perfect starting point for my packing!

  2. How fabulous! I'm thrilled for you -- and I know you're going to look stunning every day of you adventure. I hope you're going to take outfit photos each day!

    Dave and I are going back to Prague in the fall, with a brief stop in Paris on our way home. I will be taking a pile of black separates to continue my masquerade as a secret agent :-)
