my style

Back to Basics.


Hello there! Happy Tuesday!

I’m writing to you from the beautiful city of Algarve in Portugal!! Really excited to be here and explore everything Algarve has to offer. I will share more in the next posts about my stay here with photos and day-to-day activities! Exciting stuff, but follow me on instagram as you will see live photos from my trip.

Before I left to Portugal, I had such a hectic/weekend that all I wanted to do was relax and enjoy a sunday afternoon with my family. On sunday, we all had a little shopping date followed by a lovely lunch while we caught up with each other and planned our holidays!

I pulled out one of my oldest pair of jeans from high school! Oldie but goodie! Who said flares were dead? Not me! :)

Side news; Shopbop just launched my new set of tees for the holidays! Definitely my favorites ones to date especially the Globe Trotter, MEOW, J’ heart NY and Magnifique! Right now those styles are only exclusive to Shopbop so make sure to get your shopping on for the holidays HERE. My shop is carrying a new tee too;the Donut!

    Hey Jules! What are you doing in Algarve? It’s a shame that the weather is not warm anymore, otherwise you would be able to enjoy the beach… I’m Portuguese but I live in Lisbon, it was a great surprise when I opened this post and saw that you were here in our little corner of Europe. I hope you enjoy your stay, Algarve is specially calm this time of the year.

    You are looking lovely as always but i have to correct you on one litle thing…Algarve ia a region, not a city… You flew to the city of Faro, as it is the only airport in the Algarve :)

  10. Q Comment #13

    cute outfit… your hair looks good like that.

  11. C Comment #14

    Consider taking the train and visiting Lisbon, it is the capital, it is beautiful and you won’t regret it!

  12. Mariana Comment #15

    So glad to read you are in Portugal – my country! Enjoy your holidays! [By the way, just a small correction, the Algarve is a region, not a city.]

    Came back yesterday from Olhåo/Algarve, near Tavira! You definetely need to check out the Beach “Barill” which is connected to the city “Luz of Tavira” and can only be reached by a (VERY) little train. This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Algarve! Try! :)

  43. Rebecca Levallois Comment #46

    You look different but beautiful. I think its because your hair is wavy. I’ve loved your old jeans. I also I have some jeans since I was in high school haha! Signal that we have not gained weight. Kisses! :-*

    LOVE this outfit..!! Simple and fun! Love!

    Will you travel around Portugal?? I was there last summer for 2 weeks!! You must visit Lisbon! And if you can, make a 45 minute detour to Cascais, it’s a much less touristy town close to Lisbon and it is absolutely beautiful. We stayed there for a week and I really loved it. It’s quaint, clean and beautiful!

    The Algarve (Portuguese pronunciation: [aɫˈɡaɾv(ɨ)], from Arabic: الغرب‎, trans. Al-Gharb, meaning “The West”) is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal. It has an area of 5,412 square kilometres (2,090 sq mi) with approximately 451,005[2] permanent inhabitants, and incorporates 16 municipalities.

    So it’s not a city :)
