In hindsight, I probably should have dressed a bit more colorful for the occasion, but we didn't decide where we were going until the last minute. Most Sundays, Tomas and I make an effort to escape our barrio (we only have the opportunity to do this once a week) and go out on the town. You know, keep that spark alive! This was our first visit to Boteco do Brasil... As soon as you enter you just feel the good vibes...from the joyous music to the colorful ambience and the friendly staff. We drank a couple of yummy caipirinhas and ate some typical Brazilian tapas. As it turned out, Sunday nights are Samba Nights at Boteco de Brasil and they offer a free dance class! Tomas and I observed from afar, but I made a promise to myself that the next time we go to Boteco do Brasil, I'm going to dance. I figure it's about time I challenge myself to do something I'm not comfortable doing in front of a group of people. So, we shall see if I keep my promise! We also want to go back to have dinner because the food looked pretty amazing.
I went for something pretty simple & super comfortable. A loose v-neck tee, a faux leather skirt (I bought the skirt in Spain, but have never really worn it much because it didn't fit properly. Well, recently I discovered the magic of bringing your clothes to the tailor, and now it fits perfectly!) and some white high-tops from H&M.
Whenever I wear a simple white sneaker, I feel like a Scandinavian girl. I remember when I lived in Spain, I would see girls from Scandinavian countries wearing fresh white sneakers with all of their outfits and they looked SUPER cool (shoutout to Sandra!). I wish I was from Scandinavia. Anyway, wearing these sneakers from H&M was my way to channel my inner Scandinavian self ;-)
And how about my new bunny ears ring? I picked it up the day before (it's VERY rare that I go shopping here, but it was calling my name). I think it is so cute! And, surprisingly, it wasn't uncomfortable to wear considering it's interesting shape.
