PERSISTENCE & THE FABULOUS FLAMINGOS

While walking around the Wynwood art district in Miami a couple months ago, I spotted what I assumed was a flamingo wall in the distance. We had just left my children in Aruba and my flamingo-radar was at an all time high. My pink laser eyes scanned everything at approximately 299,792, 458 miles per second and when I saw the top of this wall my indicator went off, I shouted Flamingo to Stef and pointed in the distance almost speechless. I'm confident you understand my reaction.    

Obviously we decided to get a better view to determine if there were indeed flamingos on said wall. Stef and I walked a few blocks and the closer we got, the more excited I became. I even whipped out my phone to share the excitement with you on Instagram story, did you catch it?  As I held my phone towards the wall and approached the building my anticipation and excitement shifted to utter disappointment. How could this be? A flamingo appeared before me but not at all what I imagined.  How could the mother of all Flamingos not be excited by this?

JUST PEACHY 🍑✌🏽

NYC came alive this weekend with soaring high temperatures and I couldn't resist being outside with all the other folks soaking up the glorious Spring sunshine. I ditched my Saturday chores and ventured to Brooklyn for an afternoon stroll. I stopped to smell the deli flowers along the way (NYC style), ate some pizza, did a bit of Vintage shopping and finsished the day with a little ice cream treat.

The streets were alive with vendors and artists galore and I shared quite a bit on my Instagram story. It was such a lovely day and I was in the mood for some modern-vintage 70's style.

It's the perfect day to step out and have a scoop or two or three because what's an 80 degree day without sweet treats?

MILDRED'S MIAMI MEMORY

While traveling back from Cartagena, we stopped in Miami for a couple of nights because there was a terrible snow storm in NYC. I checked the weather for this weekend and it's suppose to snow (insert crying emoji face). I'm not sure if the snow will turn into rain this weekend but it was very cold all week to the point where we had to whip out our puffy coats and boots again. It's April and all I can say is "Winter to be gone!" I'm ready for sunshine, crisp air and fragrant flowers. 

If you're feeling the chill and want to warm up, reminisce with me and take a stroll with Mildred along South Beach wearing some of her wardrobe essentials. I've linked to a few options for you because they're not your typical "essentials" lineup ;)
