It’s been 30C for the last week in Toronto… which means this dressing in light airy fabrics as much as possible.
This backless Tatyana frock did just that for me and was worn many times this summer!
It doesn’t hurt that there are orange flamingos all over a navy blue background either. 😉
As I’ve gotten older Ive noticed that being out in the sun really has a negative effect on me. So wearing hats are a must on really hot, sunny days. I picked up this wicker newsie boy cap from Public Butter for $12.
This little wicker flamingo purse had been rescued from my massive closet cleanup that seems to be never ending. How I could let such a lovely item go unused for so long, I don’t know.
Speaking of flamingos, ready for episode 3 of The Hilarious Adventures of Fil Mango?
It’s no secret … I’m crazy about flamingos. It’s the pink …. I just love pink!
So when my partner brought home these fun earrings from Made You Look, I was just thrilled to see how well he knows me 🙂 Wearing them made me think of this kid song “Flamingo Flamenco” …clip above for your viewing pleasure – you’re welcome.
I’ve been shopping my closet putting together outfits and combinations that are new. The only new item in these pictures, other than the gifted earrings, is the Dollarama polkadot headband.
As for the three-toned dress and open cardi = both are so old that the tags within them are non-existent. The pink purse is Kate Spade. Mixing higher end items with affordable ones to create a full look is what I love doing.
If you enjoy this look, and my flamingo pink hair (no joke – that’s what its called) you might like a little side project I’ve been working on.
It’s a story about a not-so-young, but dashingly handsome young comic who comes to Toronto to try and make it in the comedy scene. I’d love to know what you think of it, as it’s my first time trying my hand at comedy writing.
