I am waaaay overdue for a new post. I know.
I have been beyond busy last few weeks preparing for a very long trip. I will share more on this in the coming posts. But for now, I promise I had a really good reason to be a little absent.
Today I share with you an outfit I wore on our one day visit to beautiful town of Faro. This gem of a town is located in the south of Portugal, in the Algarve region. It is much quieter than other Algarve region beach towns, but it very much worth a trip. One of the reasons it is not a top destination for vacation is because it’s beach is not in the town. It is about 15 ride from the town centre. The beach is called Praia da Faro and it’s a great beach. It’s long and vast, and on a windy day like we experienced, waives can be extremely strong. We didn’t swim that day but we certainly enjoyed the waived play while we sipped on some could beers on one of many beach patios.
The evening was spent walking the beautiful quaint streets of Old Town Faro. I will speak more about it in the next post. We also enjoyed some tasty food and ended up in a bar where all the locals hang out. We definitely tried to fit in, but not very successfully. It is a small town after all and locals know each other well.
One of the things that I recommend you visit if you chose to put this town on your bucket list is a Capela Dos Ossos, the bone chapel. The bones of the overcrowded cemeteries were stored in the small chapel that is located within the Carmo church complex. These bones were incorporated into the designs of the chapel, with skulls lining the walls – very strange and creepy.
As for my outfit, it’s the same top and pants I wore in the last post, but instead of sneakers I opted for stiletto ankle strap sandals instead for a night out on the town (yes I struggled on the cobblestone streets hahaha). In case you don't remember, I traveled very lightly to Portugal and brought only two pairs of pants, three tops and couple of dresses, hence the reason for repeat outfits, but I'm a strong believer that a change of shoes and a bag, can instantly change the appearance of an otherwise same outfit. What do you say?
