Postcards From Portugal With Mademoiselle Robot

14-05-2014
Europe is a wonderful place. You can leave London on a rather bleak Saturday morning, hop on a plane for 2.5 hours and arrive somewhere bright, sunny and warm. My destination this weekend was The Oitavos hotel near Cascais, a seaside town located only a few miles from Lisbon (about 30mn drive). 

I spent my time there in between the spa, pool, beach, beautiful little towns and perfect restaurants. What more can a girl ask for? Of course, I couldn't go there without snapping a million photos to show you! Don't worry, I came prepared and my luggage was bursting with MCM bags - yes I have become that person. I will soon write about how to pack as many MCM bags as possible when you travel, by the way.

MY TIPS:

Stay: The Oitavos Hotel
Eat: Restaurante da Adraga, Sintra
Visit: Sintra, Cascais, Estoril
Day Trip: Lisbon by boat!
Pack: Mediterranean smart, loose trousers, lots of white, big sunglasses. a hat and as many MCM bags as you can!

One of my travel companions for this trip: the First Lady Mini Satchel. It is one of my all-time favourite MCM bags. I wore it everyday. It goes with absolutely everything and looks perfect whether it is relaxing poolside or at a fancy cocktail party in the evening. The ideal travel bag, basically.

I travel a lot, so I have a few go-to outfits I like to fly in. I want to be comfortable, but stay chic, especially when I travel for work. A simple white shirt, fitted jeans and loafers are my items of choice. I also like to carry one of my MCM shoppers with me to carry travel essentials. This time I took my colour block Shopper Project bag with me.

Whoops... It would appear I brought enough bags for 2 weeks... You will recognise my SS13 Craig & Karl pouch. I use it to carry my laptop and it doubles up as an evening clutch. Fancy!

These two look like they were made for each other, don't you think?

Finally, I just had to share this beautiful assortment of pastries! Continental breakfast never looked so appealing!
