Welcome to Porto Alegre!

19 Nov

Yesterday I had a business trip to Porto Alegre, my hometown! I flew off from São Paulo in the morning and went directly to the Shopping Mall Iguatemi in Porto Alegre.

It’s funny how unfamiliar the city still seems to me. I was born in Porto Alegre, but never lived there, and even though we spent many holidays there visiting the family, I feel like I don’t know anything about the city!

Since I would spend only one day/night in Porto Alegre and leave the following morning, I chose something comfortable to wear for the trip and during the day. I then went to the Hotel to get ready for the party at the shop.

Ontem tive uma viagem à trabalho para a minha cidade natal, Porto Alegre.

Apesar de ter passado muitas férias em família por lá, nas casas de tias e tios, convivendo com primos, viajando para o litoral gaúcho, toda vez que chego na cidade é como se chegassse em um lugar totalmente desconhecido. Pela primeira vez, o motivo da minha visita foi outro e eu fui pra cidade apenas à trabalho, para voltar no dia seguinte. Do aeroporto direto para o Shopping Iguatemi, escolhi viajar com uma roupa confortável para ficar até à noite, quando fui ao Hotel me arrumar para a festa na loja. 

Travel & Day outfit - and my tired face after a long day!

I wore my favorite black trousers from Zara, a blue striped shirt, black blazer, Shoestock flats and Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag. I know my sister would wear high-heels no matter what, and she often goes away on business trips. But, as you might have noticed, I’m pretty basic and I love wearing flat shoes – even though Anna Wintour says “no no” to flats!

Vesti minha calça preta perfeita comprada na Zara em Amsterdam,  uma camisa azul listrada, blazer preto, sapatilhas e minha bolsa Louis Vuitton Neverfull. Ao contrário da minha irmã, que usa salto-alto até para dormir, eu sou beeem mais básica e clássica, e ainda prefiro a boa e confortavel sapatilha sempre que for possível deixar o salto de lado.

There's always space for more!
