Oh heeeeeeeyyyy summertime. That means it’s time to play lawn games! And lawn games = pink flamingos.
One time, in my event planning days, I planned a music series and decided that the general public would also enjoy lawn games. And pink flamingos. I ordered fifty of them from the internet. FIFTY PINK FLAMINGOS. It was one giant box of fabulous until I tried to plant them in the grass. In the heat of the summertime, the ground was hard like asphalt. Trying to drive those pink flamingos into the solid dirt to decorate the event resulted in an unflattering glisten of sweat and drenched sleeves, and I gave up after approximately two made it into the ground. Not the decor effect I had envisioned.
But this summer? Pink and pink flamingos are having their moment.
Preppy in Pink
Shop | Ann Taylor (big sale tomorrow!)
This may be the perfect shirt dress. It’s pink like a pink flamingo and the cut is extremely flattering. Ann Taylor is running a major promotion this weekend, and I don’t know what it is, but this is in my shopping cart. If you visit the website, they have a countdown for a big sale tomorrow… I’m so curious! How about you?
Lilly Pulitzer Pink Colony Print
Shop | Lilly Pulitzer
Lilly’s summer “pink colony” print features pink flamingos. For all you girl moms, there is a matching baby girl dress. And yes. I have them both and plan to wear this weekend in the sweltering 100 degree weather we are experiencing.
Kate Spade Flamingo Tote
Shop | Kate Spade
This is a baby bag, but all that means is it will have lots of pockets to keep your stuff organized if you aren’t lugging around diapers, pacifiers, wipes, extra onesies, hooter hiders and other misc. items like me these days. The amount of stuff I’ve deemed essential to tote is staggering.
Flamingo Pool Float
Shop | Swoozies
I want to float on this and do not think it requires any further explanation.
Kate Spade Flamingo Scarf with Pom Poms
Shop | Lord & Taylor (on sale!)
This gorgeous scarf would look so pretty with a simple black dress.

Here is a picture of my teeny infant’s baby bottom in a monogrammed diaper cover from CeCe Dupraz. You can get the flamingo on anything you choose – cute totes, guest towels, zippered pouches… seriously go browse. Best shop for gifts on the internet. (She also happens to by my friend!)
