wear this there: a luz ideal café lisbon, portugal / sfgirlbybay

i’ve visited Lisbon twice now, but thus far, my heart has only grown fonder for it as i stumble across more and more design gems — the city is just full of food served with a friendly dose of charm. the sweet little neighborhood coffee shop a luz ideal is no different and is immediately going on our must-visit places when we do finally make a return to Portugal. its owner teresa, and her architect husband are responsible for this adorable spot. its dreamy floor tiles remind us of old-world lisbon, while the kitschy, upbeat decor brings us back to the now. oh, and in case you were wondering what a luz ideal means, it directly translates to the ideal light — so let’s stop in for a morning cup of coffee, and some sweet treats in our very best summer ensemble. we’re going colorfully casual today, in a sweet pink gingham top, paired with a flouncy checked skirt (that also doubles as a dress when you hike it up!) with a pretty retro-styled cardigan thrown chicly over our shoulders in case there’s a wee a chill in the air. add to that a sassy foldable sunhat and tote bag, strappy sandals, and a favorite pair of sunglasses. i’ve also packed us a fun film camera to capture this cute cafe and the sightseeing beyond. nothing seems more fitting for a morning spent here than an excellent read so i suggest normal people by sally rooney — one of my very favorites and now a mini-series on hulu (but do read the book first!). sally rooney’s perfectly spare prose tells a story that explores the subtleties of ireland’s class system, the electricity and comlications of first love, and the complex entanglements of family and friendship.

  1. I’ve been trying to resist getting one of those hats (i’m not a hat person and I know I won’t actually wear it), but you’re making it hard! Lovely selections as always!

  2. Beautiful! Perfect timing. I am leaving for Portugal next month, and will be staying in Lisbon twice during my travels throughout the country. Will definitely go to this charming place while there. ❣

    Thank you, Victoria!
