I am soo excited because in 5 days I will be on my way to Rio de Janeiro (aka my homeee *.*)!!! I don´t know if people know this but in Brazil clothes are quite expensive. What happens is that we have lot of boutiques but we don´t have so many department stores. Recently it opened ONE forever 21 in Rio and all the girls went crazy haahah! We don´t have H&M yet :(, when I am in Brazil and I want to buy clothes I go to Zara because is one of the most “affordable”. Is really sad that clothes are so expensive in Brazil, that´s why before going there I do a little shopping over here hehe.
As I showed in one previous post, Rio de Janeiro style is very colourful and warm, so I choose some fun items:
1. Shirt from Bikbok – great to use with a jeans short and some havaianas, perfect to walk around during the day.
2. Shorts from Gina tricot – They are soo comfortable! Sometimes jeans shorts get a bit uncomfortable, so I wanted something to subistitute that. Plus the print is similar to the one used in the Copacabana beach sidewalk *.*.
3. Bikini from H&M – A bikini is a MUST have if you go to Rio. I didnt have any! Let´s face it, there is no place to use bikini in Finland. Maybe in the sauna but the tradition is to go naked!! Yeppp, Finns have no problem to be all naked, I had a bit of a culture shock ahha. No, in Brazil we do not go naked to the beach :D, actually womans don´t even do the “topless” thing.
4 Shirt from H&M – Always good to have a simple white shirt so you can play with the accessories. This one is actually a cropped top.
I hope I can show little bit of Brazil to you girls when I am there! What about more Rio de Janeiro street style? If you are curious about something in Rio let me know! I want to post as much as possible when I am there! 🙂
Thanks for reading! Are you travelling somwhere in the summer holidays??
