    IN LOVE WITH EMERALD GREEN

    One of my military friends has been promoted and naturally we celebrated this event! For the invitation to his party I wore Emerald Green – the Pantone colour of 2013.

    BOM DIA DE PORTUGAL – BLUE PAISLEY

      Bom dia de Portugal! What comes to your mind when you think of this beautiful country? I am exploring Portugal. Mr C showed me his Lisbon, we have been to Cascais, Estoril and Sintra; currently we are spending a couple of days in Porto and the rural countryside where these photos have been taken. I am pairing my Old Navy paisley dress with a white MANGO blazer and new…
