Pink + Pattern + Pearls

Fit and Flare Dress with pink accents + pearl necklace | Summer outfit on Hunting for Pink Flamingos

If you ask me, the #1 reason to wear a fit and flare dress is to feel like an ice skater. (Anyone else?) I caught the Olympic bug very young, and I remember being so into the ladies’ ice skating during the Nagano games. I actually drew a picture of Tara Lapinsky, Michelle Kwan, and Chen Lu on my little chalkboard, and the last time I was in my parents’ basement, that picture was still on the chalkboard.

Of course, I can barely lift one foot off the ground when I’m ice skating, so a triple lutz is probably a little beyond my skill set. But a girl can dream. And wear fit and flare (aka ice skater) dresses.

I’ve had a lot of people ask me if I made this dress, but I did not. I actually found it on sale at Francesca’s several years ago. It was one of those purchases that I didn’t even have to think about. I just bought it.

Along with the pink on the shoulders and at the hem, there’s a pink exposed zipper in the back. That I, of course, forgot about until we were done taking pictures. (You can just barely see it in one of the pictures.) Oops. So instead, I’m linking some cute colorful dresses!
