Vilamoura dreams - What I wore

Sunglasses - Dorothy Perkins, Dress - T K Maxx, Sandals - Next, Watch - Michael Kors.

Whilst in Portugal, we made use of the local bus service and headed over to Vilamoura, Portugal's answer to St. Tropez.  As promised it is a beautiful luxurious resort where the rich and famous come to soak up the sun and spend their Euros!  I knew shorts and a vest top would not do, so I put on this dress that I picked up in T K Maxx for £10.00!  I was a bit unsure when I bought it as it is not a style that I would usually go for but it became a firm holiday favourite - a bit more dressy and very cool, which was so important as we were melting as soon as we stepped out of our air conditioned apartment!  I also bought the sandals from Next in the sale so only paid £12.00 for them instead of £22.00.

We wandered around the 1,000 berth marina in awe of the yachts that were there, wishing that we could afford one! Megan and Dave ate crepes at footballer Luis Figo's 'Bar Sete' (bar seven).  I have no idea who he is but apparently he is very famous and Dave was pretty excited about it!! The shops were divine and so was the food (the prices were pretty hefty too!).   

I really did not want to leave but we decided that we will definitely return for an adult only long weekend at some point.
