Exploring the Old Town

I’m back in London for two weeks after having an amazing week down in Miami. I’m excited to write a post all about it, especially as I know it’s a very popular holiday destination (I already know at least three people who are there or will be there later this summer), but until then I wanted to share an outfit from Portugal two weeks ago. In July I’ll be heading off to Malta which I’m really excited about, and maybe, just maybe, if I still have money saved up post graduation, I’ll book one last cheeky getaway before training starts for work…

We took these photos on a day out exploring the old town in Algarve the day after we arrived in Portugal, hence you can see this outfit shot in a few different locations around the town. It wasn’t blazing hot until a day or two more into our holiday, so I decided on this 3-quarter sleeve lace top. The laced aspect of the top stopped me from getting too hot, and the 3-quarter sleeve ensured I was dressed appropriately for the weather. I was wearing a bandeau beneath the top so that it wasn’t exposing too much, for those that are a bit bustier you’ll definitely need to pay attention to the bandeau and continually adjust it; I definitely found myself having to adjust it a few times if it slipped down.

I paired this top with a brown ASOS skirt which I think adds a bit of diversity to an otherwise monotone outfit; finishing the outfit off with these comfy Vans trainers, which were very ideal given we spent the day on our feet. Both in Portugal and Miami now this backpack has been my best friend, it’s tiny enough that you can fit all your essentials in it and forget you’re even carrying it.

Now that I have unlimited time, over these two weeks I’m going to be working really hard on updating Skylish with a lot of good content! It’s extremely rare that I have all of this free time to myself so I’m very excited to get some genuine productivity in for something I’m really passionate about.

Hope you guys like this outfit! I’m going to spend the rest of my evening drowning myself in some really trashy TV – Love Island.

Have you been away this summer? Where did you go and how was it?

I’ve linked a fairly similar asos skirt in the post that could be useful ๐Ÿ™‚ x

I love the lace top! I’m going to Spain in a month and opted in for something lacey, just because I feel like it’s really lightweight and makes me feel like I’m wearing much less than I am if that makes sense xD

I hope you had a lovely time ๐Ÿ™‚
