Flamingo Dress {yes, I said flamingos}

Shoreline Soiree Dress in Flamingos from ModCloth

At first glance I saw a sleek and stylish dress that would be perfect for wearing to work or a nice dinner.

On second glance… flamingos???

Yes.  Flamingos.

And the Floridian in me went, “SA-weeeeeeeeeeeeeet!”

I mean, come on:  an upscale dress with such a fun design?  I’m all about that.  Plus, growing up in Florida has left me with a strange affinity for pink, plastic flamingos.  I think they’re amusingly charming.

So these flamingos rock even harder.

It’s like a vacation in a dress.  That would make me smile every time I passed a mirror.  :)

Light and Lacy

I love the clothes from Free People. They seem like the type of clothes I’d design if I designed clothes.

There’s a lot of lace and textures and light, flowing fabrics.  I like the femininity of it.

Anyway, I was browsing through some of their collection, and I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites here.  I see it as kind of a mental collection of the look I’m after.  It’s one of my missions, of late, to slowly replace the I’m-too-pregnant-too-care-what-I-look-like pieces still in my wardrobe with things that are a bit more bohemian.  A bit more relaxed, yet girly and beachy.  A bit more me.

I posted a few of my faves.  Let me know what you think – I’d love to hear some opinions!  :)
