Azulejos in Porto | Meghan Markle Blue Oscar de la Renta floral dress lookalike

While researching for my trip to Portugal, I dreamed of taking pictures in front of the gorgeous painted tiles, or azulejos as they’re known, and packed this gorgeous blue and white floral dress from H&M. I was delighted when I saw Meghan Markle wearing a similar wrap dress by Oscar de la Renta to the wedding ofHarry’s cousin, Celia McCorquodale. I’m sharing a Meghan Markle Oscar de la Renta blue floral dress lookalike, and how I wore it!

I’m wearing a blue floral dress from H&M, mule sandals from Vince Camuto, a Sofia round crossbody bag by Rebecca Minkoff and blue tassel earrings from Kate Spade New York.

Porto was full of magnificent tile walls, or azulejos. These hand-painted tiles often depict Portugal’s history, or religious scenes when they adorn church walls. I love how each wall is unique and that they add so much colour to the streetscape.

In Porto, the best Azulejo tile wall is located at Rua Santa Catarina at the Capela Das Armas. The azulejos extend nearly to the floor, and the dramatic green door provides an excellent contrast.

I also enjoyed the tile facade at Igreja do Carmo, around the corner from the infamous Livreria Lello. The windows provide an architectural punch, and there is less foot traffic so you can get epic shots!

I styled this Meghan Markle Oscar de la Renta blue floral dress lookalike with a pair of on-trend suede mules for a retro vibe. I wanted a punch of contrast and added a pastel bag to keep things fresh. I recently wore this dress to the beach with a straw bag and hat (which I also wore here), and it’s so versatile! I hope Meghan Markle will wear this blue Oscar de la Renta wrap dress for other occasions, the print is lovely!
