Weekend Wardrobe: Flights of Fancy Flamingo Travel Wardrobe

A Trusting Moment by Frederick Stuart Church
(from Fine Art America)

After my recent series of flamingo-related posts, it should come as no surprise that these birds would inspire me to come up with a bird-brained travel wardrobe.  This week's offering is a mere fantasy for all but the most fanatical flamingo fan, but I like to think that there are a few female fashionistas out there who would flock to this collection like birds of a feather.  Flamingo pink is combined with basic black and white plus an accent color of pale blue to create an eye-catching palette -- after all, flamingos are rather flamboyant birds!

Let's get started with the "in transit" options:

Clockwise from top left: Univibe Flamingo Lingo T-Shirt; Belle Etoile Flamingo Black and White Bangle; Dorothy Perkins Tall Black Cotton Cardigan; Flamingo Backpack; ModCloth The Fast Resort Slip-On Sneakers in Flamingos; Only Women's Royal Skinny Acid Wash Jeans in Coral.

The birds are rather subtle in this ensemble, but show up on the shirt, shoes, rather expensive bracelet, and even the backpack.

Next up is the apparel to pack, which includes a fair number of items for a trip of about a week.  Luckily the carry-on bag plus the backpack should hold everything with careful packing:

Clockwise from top left: Pink Crystal Flamingo Pendant in Sterling Silver; Banned Flamingos Bag; Cambridge 20" Hardsided Carry-On Spinner in Pink; Dorothy Perkins Pale Blue Cotton Cardigan; Chicwish Flamingo Fun Flare Print Dress; Women's Aerosoles Super Soft Slip-On in Light Blue Nubuck; Flamingo Big Shirt; Violeta by Mango Cotton Bermuda Shorts in Sky Blue; L.L. Bean Premium Washable Linen Pants in White; Steve Madden Donddi Flat Sandals in Black; ModCloth Birds of a Feather Rock Together Skirt; L.L. Bean Sleeveless Premium Double L Polo in White; Center top left: Land's End Women's Cashmere Short Sleeve Sweater in Cloud Heather; Center top right: Becksy Fabulous Flamingo Silk Twill Scarf in White; Center bottom: L.L. Bean Short-Sleeve Crewneck Tee in Strawberry Pink.

These pieces easily mix and match, and every combination can be accented by flamingos on at least one item, even if it is only the colorful purse or the simple necklace.

Oh, how I would love to meet the woman who is quirky and adventurous enough to wear this unique travel wardrobe!
