flamingoes

I once met someone who thought flamingoes were magical creatures that only existed in fairy tales (kind of like unicorns). If you really think about it, they look very surreal. How can a creature be so pretty? If you see them in a flock they look like pink cotton candy (yes, I know, I've been craving cotton candy these days).

Now, imagine how beautiful flamingoes would be if instead of feathers, they grew flowers. Actually, you don't really have to imagine that. You can just see it on the tank top I'm wearing on this post. This Flamingo Ruffle Tank is from The Classic Brand.

Summer in Boston is so hot I feel like wearing tank tops and swimsuits most days. I wish I could walk around the city wearing a swimsuit top and feel comfortable. But, since I can't really do that, I just wear the two of them together.

I love this look because it's so casual and laid back. Perfect for a good walk or weekend adventures, specially on a really hot summer day.

If you like wearing tanks during the summer, but hate looking too plain, check out The Classic Brand website. They have good alternatives.


What do you usually wear in summer?

  10. That's the cutest shirt! And I love that flamingos could be fantastical creatures. That's awesome. I just found a book that is like a modern bestiary with weird animals that actually exist.

  16. As soon as I spotted that triangle bikini top, I felt jealous! I sooo want one, but the cost of the bikini and shipping just makes me want to cry. I love that tank top too, so cute...and the story of your friend thinking flamingos were mythical makes me feel less stupid for thinking narwhales weren't real either haha!
    Amazing look- an outfit that I wish I owned!!

  21. What an adorable tank (and great pics, too)! Years ago (while visiting the Bahamas), I bought tan sweatshirt with flamingos on it (very similar to yours). I still own and wear it (It's a perennial fave of mine!). :) T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  27. Haha that's so funny that they thought it was something out of a fariy tale- but they do look kinda like something out of a fantasy. And I love that mesh bra- that was such a cute detail to the look :)

  28. when I was a kid I went through a phases of only wanting anything "flamingo pink". It was ridiculous, and my poor mum played along sourcing items that would fit my brief! Love that top.
