What We Wear Wednesday: Flowers and Flamingos

So this time I'm not too late. Hooray!

I wore this outfit to go have a drink with my lovely niece. During the day I was wondering what to wear and I had this alliteration in my head: flowers and flamingos. I already posted something on Twitter 'bout wanting to have a flamingo, my brain just sometimes works like that. And then it totally hit me that I also OWN flowers and flamingos! Clothing-wise that is. Flamingos are the coolest thing and when I saw Alexa Chung for Vero Moda rocking this blouse, I had to go and buy it. Ok, she's actually rocking the dress and I got the blouse. Plus, the flamingos are pale pink and we all know I love pale pink. I'm beginning to wonder if it ever gets boring. Well, not for me!

So I wanted to combine my pale pink flamingo printed blouse, with my pale pink floral printed pants. I thought it worked quite well. This is one of my other ZARA pants I was talking about HERE. I was having second thoughts about this one, but my mom said to just take it. So that's what I did. And I sure don't regret it! It's a bit more loose than the other skinnies though, which is too bad.

Because the whole thing is a bit...well, pale. I threw in my black faux leather jacket, to spice things up. I bought the thing two years ago when I was in Barcelona at a local ZARA (I seem to have bought a lot of things two years ago, but I was a working girl back then) and I really love it. I love the leopard print on the inside and the lovely short fit. But I have always annoyed myself about the long sleeves, I don't want no short arms! So I got the luminous idea to roll up my sleeves. Took me quite a while huh. And double win: now you can see the leopard print and it doesn't involve me and flashing.

My purse is also from Barcelona, but it's thrifted. Barcelona really is second-hand heaven! Besides pale pink, I have a thing for white. Which means I own a lot of white purses and shoes. You'll see. The shoes that I'm wearing here are also thrifted. And they hurt like hell! I think it's a small 37, which fits, but the leather is really stiff. But they are soooo pretty! I'm such a woman.
