I'm a Sucker for Seersucker and Flamingos

First of all, I am very excited to announce that last week I finally gave my blog a much needed makeover. Since spring is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings, it felt like the perfect time to update up the look of my blog. There are still some things I would like to tweak and change about the design, such as creating a menu bar, but overall I couldn't be happier! In case you're wondering, I used Designer Blogs to help me with my new look and they made the process super simple and were very prompt with everything. I also bought my blog's domain, which is apparently a big deal. Given these two things, I feel a step closer to being a more "professional" blogger, as opposed to someone who just blogs as a hobby.

Speaking of things that are fresh and clean, I think my outfit for today just screams spring! As you might already know, I am a sucker for anything that features flamingos, especially flamingos that are made out of rectangular sequins. Flamingos actually remind me of the movie Scarface, because, in one of my favorite scenes, the titular protagonist Tony Montana is watching pink flamingos strut across his new TV while sitting in his new below-ground bathroom hot tub and he starts demanding, "Pelican, fly! Come on, pelican!" as he's engrossed in the flamingos, much to the dismay of Michelle Pfeiffer's character who is in the midst of "powdering" her nose. (If you haven't seen Scarface, you really should!) Anyway, here are some tees featuring Flamingos, or, if you're Scarface, pelicans!

Last of all, I am also a fan of anything seersucker. I have a lot of seersucker bottoms, but this midi skirt from H&M was a little different than some of the other pieces I already own. I actually bought the skirt on the same day as the flamingo tee with the intent of wearing them together.  Some things were just made to go with one another, like pink flamingos and crisp seersucker or Tony Montana and mountains of cocaine!
