It’s probably not too much of a surprise that I love flamingos – after all, what’s not to like? As well as the obvious great colour and gorgeous shape, these exotic birds remind me of being in my spirit home in Florida – and I always make a beeline for them at the zoo. We’ve decorated our home with little flamingo motifs here and there, but I also like to grab any opportunity to incorporate the pink ladies into my wardrobe!
When I unboxed this cute Dancing Flamingo necklace by I Love Crafty at Cheekyboo Emporium, it was love at first sight. It’s cheery colour and flailing dancing legs reminded me of myself when I hear Prince on a night out (minus the excited squealing, that is).
I couldn’t wait to wear it, and thought it would look ideal with – you guessed it – more flamingos!
With a flock truly starting to form, I loved where this outfit was heading. I’m really digging powder blue and bright pink as a colour combo right now, and when I seen the vivid acrylic necklace paired with my Coco Fennell flamingo dress felt like it was meant to be.
My little Dancing Flamingo came beautifully wrapped in rainbow tissue paper and lots of stickers (just the way I like my mail!) from Cheekyboo Emporium, an awesome online boutique who stock a carefully-chosen selection of handmade accessories, gifts and homeware. With new makers being added to the store regularly, they are certainly one to watch!
I was VERY tempted to stand on one leg (a la flamingo) in these photos – but I don’t posses the same grace as our feathered friends! I did however, have a lot of fun flailing around to a questionable Spotify playlist instead…
My Dancing Flamingo Ensemble includes:
Dress: Coco Fennell
Necklace: I Love Crafty at Cheekyboo Emporium
Shoes: Fred’s Shoes
Peony hairclip: Crown and Glory
It’s safe to say that this cheery necklace has danced its way right into my heart and I can see myself wearing it a lot over the coming months.
Do you love flamingos in fashion too? Can you stand on one leg without falling over?
