Travel Story by: Florence Rañola | Written by: Stephanie Esguerra

Portugal—the westernmost country in Europe. Known for having some of the warmer climates in the continent and being home to famous religious sites and historic landmarks, Portugal attracts millions of tourists each year, which makes it the perfect go-to destination to bring any of Annie & Lori’s suede collection.

With style and handmade quality, these sandals make the perfect travel companion to bring you to the best sights and tourist spots in Portugal. Slip on these classic slip-ons and discover the timelessness and comfort that each pair brings, no matter what’s on your itinerary.

Weave through postcard-pretty streets by riding the trams in Lisbon.


Lightweight, breathable fabrics paired with basic suede slip-ons make the city commute a breeze.

Alfama’s cobbled streets and old town charm make for a perfect photo backdrop.

Get a feel of Lisbon’s bustling art, music, food and shopping scene at LX Factory in the Alcantara district, and feast your eyes on stunning Portuguese tiles.

Comfy walking sandals are a must while you traverse what used to be an industrial complex. Old meets new in every corner of this hip, Instagram-worthy locale

Stretch out and enjoy the view of Lisbon’s popular fishing village, Nazare, where time seems to stop.

The smell of the sea and the vibrant ancient fishing traditions make Nazare a welcome respite from its faster-paced neighboring towns.

Make each step count. Go off the beaten path sometimes, and discover hidden gems in side streets and alleys.

Fall in love with the view of Alfama’s beautiful brick-roofed establishments and churches at the Miradouro de Santa Luzia.

Steal the show with bold prints and muted hues, set against the pastel colors of the Alfama district.

A vista fit for a queen. Re-live the life of royalty in the majestic Pena Palace in the town of Sintra. Built during the Romantic era, the castle has earned the title as one of Portugal’s seven wonders, and as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Soak up the sun at Praia de Pinhao, along the Algarve Coast, with its fine sand beaches and interesting rock formations. Perfect for a morning stroll.

Serene waters, sandstone cliffs and golden sand await you at Camilo Beach in Lagos. Time to bring out that swimsuit!

Go for a dip.

Walk on the beautiful mosaic-tiled streets of Rossio Square, which dates back to the Middle Ages. It’s now a popular meeting place among tourists and locals alike.

Strike a pose and go for complementary colors under the same palette with your travel buddy.

Go all out ultra feminine as you traverse through Rua Nova Do Carvalho “Pink Street”. Don’t let the girly color fool you, though. The area is actually host to a lot of adult-driven establishments, such as a sexy lingerie store, not to mention an erotic bookstore, too.

Set footh in the idyllic town of Obidos, the popular landmarks of which you can navigate in an hour or two. Find your pace as you take in the white-walled houses and flowering trees in full bloom.

Annie & Lori’s latest suede collection are Lauren, a basic strappy slipon; Natalia, a criss-cross (ala Crostini) slipon and Heidi, a ruffled slip-on. All designs are available in Nude and Black colors.
