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???
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. :)
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! :)
