Share: The day started off with a little tiff, when I commented that the First Hawaiian Officer was getting a bit over-dressed for a casual and relaxed Saturday with only the running of errands on our agenda. By the look the FHO gave me, I take it that my own outfit wasn’t as ‘casual’ as it felt in my head either. But, c’mon, it IS a kaftan! What do you think? Casual or overdressed for an errand-running Saturday?

Share: Today I met with Sophie Bartho who is the founder of the 1$ Day campaign. Sophie and I have been meeting up over the past few weeks to talk through the challenges and successes of starting new ventures which have a *social good* at their core. Spending quality time with Sophie is great, and by talking with her, I am reminded of how we can each learn from one another when we’re open to it. I certainly know that come Wednesday 25 July this year, I’ll be donating to her charity.

And in fashion related matters, this shirt is another *hilarious* example of 1980s fashion thinking: just check out the oversize nature of this shirt – it’s almost like a kimono / robe – and yet it’s labelled a size 10! Go figure. Then again, the colour-pop action this top achieves can’t be questioned… and it even has sequins on the back, around a stiletto. Priceless.
