“Ave, Cæsar, morituri te salutant”, say the Gladiators - Os gladiadores dizem “Ave, Cæsar, morituri te salutant”


“Hail Caesar, those who are about to die salute you” is a well know Latin expression supposedly used by the gladiators before engaging the fighting in the Roman Arenas. Since today I'm wearing gladiator sandals, I thought it would be an appropriate headline for today's outfit. The gladiator trend didn't start this season so I’m pretty stocked up gladiator sandals from previous seasons but I just couldn't say no to these new ones in snake print! And as my shopaholic soul wasn't rested enough I also had to order a similar version in black! 
In spite of the morning foggy weather, the temperatures are high and it's expected they hit the 86ºF mark later today so I'm wearing an ivory shift dress and golden and snake print accessories, adding to the gladiator vibe of the outfit! 
We're hoping to go to the beach and get some tan this weekend, so perhaps I'll be able to take some photos there as well! Have a great weekend, guys!

“Ave César, os que vão morrer saúdam-te” é uma expressão traduzida do original em Latim e que supostamente corresponde ao que os gladiadores diziam antes de começarem os combates nas arenas Romanas. Uma vez que hoje estou a usar sandálias gladiadoras, achei que seria um título apropriado para o look de hoje. A tendência das sandálias gladiadoras não se iniciou nesta estação, e por esse facto até já tenho algumas de anos passados; mesmo assim não consegui resistir a estas novas em padrão cobra e não sendo suficiente para descansar a minha alma de “shoppaholic”, ainda encomendei outras semelhantes em preto! 
Apesar do nevoeiro matinal, as temperaturas estão altas e é esperado que atinjam a marca dos 30ºC hoje; como tal estou a usar um vestido tubo em branco-marfim e acessórios em dourado e padrão cobra, para acentuar a “onda” de gladiadora!
Esperamos conseguir fazer um pouco de praia este fim-de-semana, quem sabe até tirar umas fotos por lá! Tenham todos um ótimo fim-de-semana!

    1. Thanks Lenya!! We ended up going to the beach on Saturday but stayed there only for a little more than one hour... With a little toddler who isn't yet used to the beach, it was the best we could do :)
      Many hugs!
