One of my favorite things about Lisbon was all of the stunning tiles paired with colorful doors. They were around every single corner and I just loved it. I couldn’t decide where I wanted to snap this outfit photo in front of so I just chose them all! These were all within a few blocks of our Airbnb that we stayed at in Lisbon. And just a couple of blocks down was this stunning courtyard that overlooked the water. There was bougainvillea everywhere.
All of the colorful bougainvilleas reminded me of Greece. One of my all-time favorite things ever. I dream one day to have a bougainvillea tree at my house. This courtyard was just 2 blocks down from Portos De Sol at the Miradouro de Santa Luzia. I highly recommend checking it out. It was just beautiful and so colorful. Made for gorgeous photos, don’t you think?
I picked up this super comfortable white ribbed dress right before my trip. It’s so easy to wear and can easily be belted if you want more of a shape. But I kind of liked the long lines and how it just clung perfectly. It’s a Mango find which can sometimes be hit or miss. but when it’s a hit, it’s a hit! I still wear this striped dress all the time from there. Sometimes I need a good reminder to shop that store. So here are your reminder friends, go shop Mango! I did a size 6 in this dress but could’ve easily done a 4 as well.
Where To Take Instagrammable Photos In Lisbon
Portos Do Sol
A restaurant and bar with the most stunning views in Alfama. There’s also a Miradouro right next to it to get the full view of the city. You can see a picture of this spot here.
PS Miradouro just means “lookout”. There are several all over the city and they almost all have a place to grab a coffee or pastry!
Miradouro de Santa Luzia
Where all that gorgeous bougainvillea is! This lookout point (that’s what Miradouro means!) was full of bold tile and blooming flowers and trees. Plus a stunning view of the water. Find the location here.
This tower is so stunning and the backdrop is definitely picture-worthy. You can see this tower here.
The Pink Street
We never did make it to the pink street but it was on my list! It’s in fact, PINK! You can see it here and get the location.
The blue tile building in this post is at 80 Escolas Gerais. Just a few blocks from Portos Do Sol.
Hunter Green Door & Gold Tile
This bold door and tile combination are a few blocks down from the blue tiles here.
