I'm flying to Florida on Thursday (leaving behind my husband and doggie who are thrilled to be left behind!), so consider this the last in a series of warmups before I go "full flamingo" on you guys. For the record, I consider this look to be approximately 40% flamingo, so you can see that we still have a way to go yet. Always room for improvement. However, as I've said before, you need to build yourself up to full flamingo. If you try to go full flamingo after a long, dark winter without the proper warmup, you could pull something, or perhaps maybe seize, or in my case, freeze to death, because even though it looks sunny, I could actually see my breath when the sun went under during this shoot. I could see my breath - in late April. *sighs*
This look is 100% secondhand, right down to the belt. The skirt is (you guessed it) Lilly Pulitzer, and while from a distance you would expect flamingos on account of the pink color, it is actually owls. Because this is an older skirt, I was at first unsure of the name of the print - Lilly prints always have plucky names that incorporate whatever flora or fauna is featured. I imagined this would have been something like "Hoot Goes There!? or "Owl'nt You Glad I Didn't Say Banana", but a quick Google search revealed that the name of the print was actually "Night Owl", which if you ask me, is far less enticing than the ones I came up with. So if anyone from Lilly Pulitzer is reading this right now, please give me a job coming up with plucky names for your prints. I will not let you down.
I'll see you guys from the other side of the Atlantic soon!
