If you follow me on Instagram you may have caught on to the little love affair I’ve been having with flamingos!
There’s a certain nostalgia about flamingos that just tickles me pink! Flamingos bring back childhood memories of family trips to the Miami Metro Zoo, where upon entry patrons were greeted by flushing flocks of flamingos! I remember my fascination with the different shades of pinks and corals radiating from their feathers, as well as my admiration of their flirty, one legged stance.
I also love that flamingos are just soooooo Miami! I dare you to find a postcard from Miami that doesn’t have a flamingo somewhere on it. So whether it be thoughts of my childhood or thoughts of my hometown, flamingos have the power to make me feel some type of way. So why not wear them emblazoned on my blouse, T-shirt, handbag and necklace?
This past Saturday all the beautiful women in my family got together to celebrate my cousin Maria’s baby shower. Maria (and her wonderful hubby) have been blessed with their 2nd baby girl, Carolina Marie! The baby shower took place at Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar, located in Kendall, Miami, Florida. The food was absolutely delicious and any occasion in which all the women in my family can be together, is truly a blessing. For this very special occasion I wore a hot pink, pleated maxi dress by Halston Heritage, rose gold shoes by Michael Kors and a necklace from Sale Rack. Of course, I wasn’t the only fashionista in attendance, my cousin Maria was glowing in a gorgeous ruffled, ivory dress by Zara and hot pink, suede pumps by Dolce Vita. My niece Angelina Marie, stole the show with her Marchesa/Neiman Marcus for Target fuschia, petal skirt dress (which my cousin has promised to hand down to me for my (distant) future baby girl) and last, but certainly not least, my beautiful niece, Victoria Cyane looked ravishing in a hot pink, embroidered Tommy Hilfiger dress and necklace from Loehmann’s ℅ Sun Fun Fashion.
