No Brasil usamos "Acordar com o pé esquerdo." ☺ Mas creio que essa faça mais sentido, pois no inverno "Acordar com os pés de fora." é de deixar qualquer um de mau humor.☺

Which literally translates to "Wake up with the left foot", but is equivalent to the English expression "Wake up on the wrong side of the bed".

I am Brazilian, maybe that expression is used in another country. Here we use the expression "Hoje acordei com o pé esquerdo" it is like "Today I woke up with the left foot", that means "I am in a bad mood or a bad luck"

"Waking with the feet outside" implies that it is outside of the bed. Sometimes "the bed" is also stated. (Portuguese native)
