Nice to meet you…

By Luci

I took a break from posting here because at one point I had too much going on with motherhood, work, and gigantic life changing events, so let me introduce myself again… Lulupeartree comes from my nickname in Brazil as Lulu and Peartree is one of my last names translated into English – which literally means pear tree! I’m Brazilian, from Sao Paulo. At the end of 2014 I created this blog for me to document looks and my lifestyle living abroad, all in an effort to express my creativity and love for life!

I lived in Lisbon, London, Toronto and Barcelona – in that order – before landing in Michigan in 2006. I graduated with a degree in Digital Media and I have been working in marketing and advertising in the States for over 10 years. I have always been fascinated with fashion, beauty and travel. Putting outfits together is my second nature. It is in the way I dress and what I produce visually where I find myself most creative.

In 2016 I became a mother, I was waiting for that life changing event for a long time. I love being a mom, now of two, and I want to use this blog as a tool for mothers and women in general to connect.

Get ready for looks, lifestyle, poignant motherhood discussions, savvy travel tips as I share firsthand how it was and has been to rediscover myself in a different country. And there’s more… I’m bringing in exciting collaborations with guest bloggers for us to share in their experiences and tips.

Leave me a comment and let’s connect! Xoxo, Lulu

Muito prazer…

Dei uma parada de postar por aqui por causa de um milhão de coisas, dentre elas a maternidade e a mudança de vida que nossa… Foi gigante! Então deixa eu me reapresentar… Lulupeartree vem do meu apelido no Brasil de Lulu e Peartree de um dos meus sobrenomes, Pereira, traduzido para o inglês – que significa árvore de pera, literalmente! Sou brasileira, de São Paulo. No final de 2014 criei este blog para eu documentar looks e meu lifestyle, expressando sempre a minha criatividade, e meu amor pela vida!

Vivi em Lisboa, Londres, Toronto e Barcelona – nesta ordem – antes de me mudar em 2006 para Michigan. Sou formada em mídias digitais pela PUC-SP e trabalho com marketing e publicidade por mais de 10 anos nos Estados Unidos. Sempre fui fascinada por moda, beleza e viajar! Adoro montar looks. É no meu modo de vestir e no que eu produzo visualmente onde me sinto mais criativa.

Em 2016 eu virei mãe. Eu esperei por esta oportunidade por muito tempo, até Deus me abençoar com minha primeira anjinha. Eu amo ser mãe, agora de duas anjinhas, e também quero usar este espaço como uma ferramenta para mães e mulheres em geral para se conectarem.

Se preparem para looks, lifestyle, discussões sobre maternidade, dicas de beleza, de viagens e de como é recomeçar e se redescobrir em um país com uma cultura diferente. E tem mais… Vou trazer convidados para compartilhar com vocês experiencias e dar dicas incríveis.

É isso gente, deixem seus comentários e vamos nos conectar mais. Espero que gostem.

Beijos, Luci.


Little Black Poncho!

December 5, 2017

Hello December!!

Last month of the year, with yet so much to be done. Christmas parties, end of the year meetings at work, Christmas lists to go over, a toddler turning 2 in January… Pheww, so much to do and so little time… I need a hot chocolate!

Winter is arriving by the end of the month, and we are really taking advantage of the last nice fall days outside, which by the way has been absolutely beautiful this year. The weather has been cold but nice, perfect timing to rock one of my favorite looks: my black fringe poncho. It brings a statement to my look which I love! Here I styled an all black on black look pairing it up with a mini black skirt, black tights and some dark green boots to add color. Super chic!

What about you? What kind of piece do you like to use to make your statement outfit?

Oversized Sweater

November 27, 2017

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!
I love taking walks outside this time of the year and people watching. Everything looks so festive and everyone is starting to get into the holiday spirit.. I’m not gonna lie, it’s cold here in Michigan and we even had some snow flurries when we were taking these pictures, but nothing stops us from having a little fun 😉

I am obsessed with oversized sweaters this time of the year. They are cozy and comfortable – all that a momma and a girl needs to keep warm and in style.
Here I paired a chunky neutral color oversized sweater I got at Zara while in Europe, with older pieces I had in my closet, such as this mini black tapper fringe dress my husband got me on a trip to Chicago years ago, and a Marc Fisher over the knee super comfortable black boots (available at DSW here). I accessorized the look with a beaded statement necklace that I picked up at Neiman Marcus.

Have a great week!
Beijos xo
