Sundays are usually very relaxing around here. This afternoon we hung at Toni Patisserie for a very late brunch.

Everything was divine, as you’d expect from a French café. I had a delicious ham biscuit while husband opted for the pork shoulder/duck fat sandwich. For dessert we shared a lemon bar, napoleon and chocolate chip cookies.
Our nights in Mexico consisted of dining on some delicious Mexican dishes, walking about the resort as we felt the light ocean breeze, grabbing a drink or two at the sushi bar and just enjoying each other’s company. A bit boring, I know. But we decided to leave the clubbing night scene for next time.

It’s never that simple to pick something right to wear at the beach. At least not for me. Especially if it calls for something that works both on the sand and the surroundings. This was a day of exploring around Isla Mujeres (a 20-min ferry ride from Cancun). We grabbed a golf cart and drove around the island to see what we could discover. Never in my life have I seen such crystal clear blue ocean.
It’s been a while since I last shared an outfit post here. One of the reasons being lack of time. In Cancun I had enough time to spare and since my husband and I carried the camera everywhere, we managed to capture shots that will help compose just a few outfit posts. On this particular day we lounged at a beautiful park known as xcaret. For the hot and sunny weather, I wore something light and casual enough to walk around as we explored the area. Swimsuit underneath, of course!
Not that I’ll be attending prom anytime soon (2004 is long gone) but this blue cocktail dress brought me back to the old times when the clear-sunglass lens trend had its days of glory and “One More Time” by Daft Punk was my jam. Maybe with the conclusion of summer and all the festivities the next two seasons come along with, my brain skipped ahead, sort of. See this week’s video lookbook above for some awkwardly early inspiration.
And that’s what I wore to a fun afternoon at the Lincoln Park Zoo, where we filmed the new video look book “Jar of Hearts”. It was hot and I was lazy, so comfort took the lead here. Wondering about the bright orange top? Rechillier is the technique, craftmenship that originated in northeast Brazil. It transitioned to mainstream in the past few years and now you can find it pretty much anywhere in the country. Definitely one of my favorite international pieces.
Last weekend we went down to Michigan City to enjoy a day under the sun on Lake Michigan. I probably never had as much fun shooting (both these and the video lookbook) and was even happier after seeing the images we were able to capture.
