What to do a summer Saturday in Lisbon?
Cheerful colourful lazy breakfast in bed. Great breakfast, isn’t it? I was dying to show you it!
Already noon, it’s super hot. As I do not like the heat and I prefer discovering some boutiques of young designers in the deserted city. There are only tourists in town (LOL)!
On my way to Principe Real
Near the famous Embaixada, here are few shopping places I like for their decor or selection of clothing and accessories.
Pictured above, the boutiques : Alexandra Moura (3) and Gopa (4). And two concept stores: Slow Retail Concept Store (1) and 21 pr Concept Store (2).
I really like the Slow Retail Concept Store, where I spent a long time: very colorful with a boho vibe and very friendly traders.
At the Real Slow Retail Concept Store,
I like for the beach, the hippie chic embroidered tunics designed by Xana Madeira (pictured above, 3).
A bit of fancy with the bangles of Ana Calheiros (2). The corner of the multibrand, Rosebud for vintage chic accessories: bags (Chloe …), shoes and jewelry (4).
The Nomada coffee, for a drink or snack in a bohemian atmosphere. Plus it smells so good: unfortunately no time to stop me this time I have late lunch at the beach!
Hello the beach : )
We head to Costa da Caparica, closer than Cascais or Gincho, 20 minutes drive from Lisbon. There is not a beach, but many beaches for miles. We arrive at 4.30-5 p.m., the best time!
The sun is still hot and gives us a golden complexion. The water is cold, it’s the ocean, but you quickly get used to it, thanks to the waves. My first swim was early May in an invigorating icy water!
Lively discussion (LOL) on our chairs, with the Brazilian electro music of the beach restaurant. And yummy fresh juices! Cheers!
Dinner at the market while listening to a DJ
Awesome! You can also listen to fado or blues lives some nights! So time to go and have a shower before going to dinner at the Mercado de Campo de Ourique.
Although I should be stayed on the beach, I really like the relaxed atmosphere of the market. A nice mix of people: families, groups of friends, hipsters, normcores and others …
Traditional Portuguese products at very reasonable prices. It’s simple and good: taste the Portugese beans (healthy and tasteful)! On weekends, it ‘s hard to find seats to eat.
