Things You Need Right Now: Flamingo Everything

My recent trip to Florida with Nick and his family was a seriously much needed break from the New York winter (and New York Spring, which I often forget is also freezing). I got my first "tan" in six months and came back to the city totally renewed. But back in the city I certainly was as my favorite Penn Station squatter reminded me that Monday by dancing a jig around his trash can and chatting animatedly with the air. Hi air! Damn you air! Aw.

Something I brought back with me beyond the tan was a distinct nostalgia for beachy things. My parents' home was always filled with authentic drift wood accents, vases filled with shells and coral that we found on our habitual weekend trips to the water and artwork scattered on the walls from beach-town artists that my dad would work on for good deals. Having seen more fish and birds, including pretty flamingos, in my life than I can count, I've also been seeing a lot of flamingo accents for this Summer that I'm super into:

West Elm Framed Flamingo Wall Art, $129 / Zatchels Flamingo Leather Satchel, $193 / Tory Burch Cade Flamingo Espadrille, $77 / Tory Burch Flamingo iPhone 5 Case, $50 / Etsy Vintage Tall Flamingo Drinking Glasses, $15 / Cole & Son Flamingos Wallpaper, pricing varies
I'm slightly freaking out about all of these things and excited to bring a few more slices of Flawda into my Northern life. But, I think these would especially add a little flair to the Astro Turf on the balcony:
