When August rolls around and I realize wearing as much white as I do won’t be an option, I tend to freak out a bit. I know winter white is a thing, and a big one, but it is not quite the same as donning white in the heat of summer. I’ll be wearing a lot of it as summer starts to wind down — head to toe looks as well as sneaking it in to my wardrobe wherever possible.
Today we are honing in on not only on white but Sunday brunch look’s as well. It is the perfect meet-the-parents date: Mimosa’s and Bloody Mary’s are served (perfectly acceptable drink, one could even say required), and the early time means there won’t be hurt feelings when you have to jaunt off to your next activity.
You’ll be looking modern and effortlessly chic in this denim skirt, and off the shoulder poplin shirt combo. Pair with simple accessories such as ASOS ‘s white heeled sandals, and a trendy mini box handbag — Coach’s Page cross body bag is perfect. Add print from Rockins super skinny rose scarf (see Kate Moss in hers) for a small pop of pizazz.

Cuba In Transition
You have a few days left to be a part of my dear friends and film maker’s, Mimi Fuenzalida & Ken Rosen, documentary about Cuba. (Check it out here on Kickstarter) The film, Cuba In Transition, focuses on Cuba during and after the embargo. Now that the relations between USA and Cuba are beginning to shift Mimi and Ken decided to travel to Cuba to be there for the opening of the embassies, and to hear what these changes mean for the people of Cuba.
Upon their return, Mimi could hardly contain her excitement about Cuba’s beautiful people, and their indomitable spirit. It was easy to see she had fallen in love. (Ken already had on his three trips spanning 1998 to 2004). She couldn’t wait to share pictures (above), and stories of their daily adventures while filming.
If you want to be a part of what is sure to be an insightful and beautifully filmed documentary you have till Tuesday August 4th, at 5:00 pm to donate. No amount is too small, but if you like Mimi’s photos above, with a $250 and $500 (framed) dollar donation you can get a 11 x 14 high quality photo (your choice of 10) from Cuba. (Photos will be different from the ones above).
