Around the World Wednesday: Colorful Cuban-inspired OOTD

GingerSnaps Cuban Inspired OOTD 1

The first rule of Cuban dressing is COLOR, COLOR, COLOR. Today’s outfit was built around a colorful, floral skirt that reminds me of the fashion you find on the streets of Cuba. Ironically, I purchased the vintage piece from my favorite CUBANO: Mayra from The House of Findings. I paired the skirt with a denim shirt that I embellished with several vintage pins. I think denim shirts are perfect for the cooler temps we have been having periodically this summer; you might remember my prior coverage of how to wear denim shirts from a previous cool summer.

Starting from the top, my headband is made from vintage silk flowers from the 1940’s. My earrings, as well as the various vintage brooches I embellished my denim shirt with are all from the 1960’s.  My necklace was a birthday gift from my dear friend Elena Phoenix.  It was first gifted to her from a shaman in Peru… pretty cool, if you ask me! :)  I purchased my big straw bag with yellow pom-poms from TopShop as my “summer bag”, but it has already fallen apart!  The final touch are the bright yellow daisy shoes.
