F is for Friday & Flamingos – From Flamingo Dresses to Flamingo Sandals & More

Remember the post about pineapples from last month? This summer, flamingos are as hot, if not hotter, than pineapples.

Flamingos are no longer relegated to yard art. When I was out running errands a couple days ago, I saw another shopper wearing the cutest flamingo shirt. Later that day, I stopped to admire a flamingo print top in a boutique. It’s time to wear flamingos, ladies!

Whether you want to wear flamingos, carry flamingos or sleep on flamingo sheets,
there is something for everyone who loves the bird that symbolizes beauty, grace and balance.

You could spend hours – if not days – hunting for the perfect flamingo dress, top, necklace, etc. – so today’s post is an assembly of the best of the best on two collages – all decorated with flamingos.

Home Update – Dena Home Peacock Bath Collection on Sale

I’m more of a clothes gal than a home decor gal, so I must admit that I haven’t paid a lot of attention to the home goods that are part of Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale.

So it took me a little while to discover that Dena Home’s collection of peacock bath items – many of which have been on my wish list for at least a year – are part of the sale!

Update: Please scroll down to the end of this post for a round up of ALL of the peacock-inspired women’s clothing and accessories included in this year’s Anniversary Sale!

I don’t need a new shower curtain right now, but if I did this would certainly be The One. The Dena Home Peacock Shower Curtain is $25.90 on sale (regularly $34.99) – and don’t miss the matching shower curtain hooks.

Instead, I have my eye on the peacock soap dish and other pretty ceramic bath accessories shown here ($11.90 – $31.90 on sale).

The most practical choice for me right now would be the peacock bath towels, which come in the same peacock motif as the ceramics and in this geometric feather motif ($5.90-$13.90 on sale).

I’ll add a Shop the Post with all of the Dena Home peacock bath items after today’s post goes out.
