Floral Dress + Flamingo Boat

Magic happens every day.

How many can say they have ridden a flamingo? Well, I did!

Last time Massimo and I went to Katara (I talked about it here), I noticed for the first time that Katara beach rents giant falmingo and swan boats. Paying 50 qr you can ride these boats for 30 mins. Each boat keeps up to 6 people.

I mean a giant flamingo boat!! I didn’t have the time to buy a ride that day, so I came back another time. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and I brought one of these flamingos out for a ride together with a friend fo mine. It was fun!

I must be particularly lucky in these days since riding a flamingo was actually the second magic moment that I lived recently. The first one was when I found the perfect floral dress.

It sounds like a very easy thing to do. You visit a store, you try a couple of floral dresses and voilà! You bring a new floral dress in your closet. Unfortunately the reality is very different. Have you ever had the feeling that when you are really looking for a specific thing you will never find it and when you stop looking for it… It magically appears!

In fact, I was browsing Namshi e-shop looking for a new floral dress to wear this season and I was almost ready to give up. But at some point, my eyes caught a fabulous print. One click on the link and… yes!!

This was the floral dress of my dreams! Exactly what I wanted. Maxi length. Nice floral print. Pastel colors. And some details that make the dress stand out. In fact, this floral dress has a beautiful back, a cross road and ruffle game.

I styled my new Namshi floral dress with a pair of velvet shoes and then I added the embroidered jacket that I bought last summer at &Other Stories. The result was a casual chic look.

But, if you want more comfy, you can wear the dress with sneakers. You can check the article where I rounded up the best sneakers available this season.

Further, if you have a more formal occasion, like a wedding, this floral dress will still be a perfect option. But, instead of the denim jacket you can wear a maxi scarf. Instead of block heels, you can pair the dress with nude stiletto heels.

So do yourself a favor, and check this floral dress before all sizes go sold out. You can thank me later!

Allora, ti ho sempre invidiata che vivi in un luogo caldo, adesso ti invidio anche per questo pedalo a forma di flamingo.
Bello il tuo sorriso e il tuo abito.
