Welcome to Porto, the city that exceeded all of our expectations and by far one of the most colourful destinations we’ve been to. Eugene and I have been wanting to go to Portugal since last year, we just didn’t know which city to pick first. As per usual we tried to avoid the far too obvious Lisbon and were looking for something more special. One photo of Porto found on Pinterest was enough to convince me. So as soon as we found the time we jumped at the chance to head to the warmer climes and some serious tile overload.
When I came across this silk slip dress of a goddess, I knew exactly how and where we are going to shoot it. Tousled hair, light blue tee to blend with the sky and my aviator clear lens glasses – that’s what instantly popped into my head. But I didn’t expect the result to turn out to be even better than I have envisioned.

While we are strolling like crazy from one part of Porto to another in attempt to soak up as much of its beauty as we can (see everything on Snapchat: beatricegutu), I still have some photos from our time in Lüneburg. As this was an work trip, I didn’t even bother to research the place ahead as I usually do. But I think this is actually one of the main reasons why the trip turned out to be so nice.

Couldn’t find a better opportunity to write this post on off duty style, than on this sunny Sunday that I’m spending on the couch. Finally. Back to the subject, over the years I made a shopping rule that every time I invest in a piece of clothing, I always have to firstly think if I’m going to wear it the next season.
