Dress Up in a Muted Color

Raise your hand if you are guilty of wearing only black and grey as soon as Fall begins?

muted color fall

We know it is a lot of you, so don’t be ashamed! Heck, we love a grey hoodie and black leggings too but we also believe in keeping things colorful. By colorful, we don’t mean neons that you rock in the summer. Naw. We are talkin’ muted colors for Fall! Here are a few of our favs…

Look #1: Kimono is Never a No No

muted color fall kimono

The perfect way to bring a little color to any outfit…this kimono! The blues and browns keep with our muted color idea and then the pop of pink just makes us love it even more. Wear it over an all black ensemble or a solid dress like our model.

Look #2: Muted Color Romper

muted color fall romper

Can you say, “Ummmm hello new favorite romper!” We feel the same. This off the shoulder number making us want to take a walk on the wild side. Want to make it even more edgy? We love a choker with an off the shoulder neckline 😉 #so90s

Look #3: Fall-ing with Drop Waist

muted color dress

If you don’t have a drop waist dress in your wardrobe yet then THIS DRESS IS THE ONE FOR YOU. The colors are fun but not too bright for fall and the ruffle is so on trend.

Now that its officially fall we have so much new stuff coming in to the store daily! You have got to swing by! Not local, don’t stress! Shop online at foxyflamingoboutique.com from work or your bed or even stuck in traffic on your phone! Feel free to give us a call or an email if you have any questions on sizing!

Dress with a Touch of Fall

Now that we are halfway through September are we allowed to say the F word without everyone freaking out? You know that F word…Fall. We aren’t saying you should take your wardrobe to the extreme like some people. Case and point:

We are just saying you should pick out items with fall color tones and cozy fabrics! Dresses are the perfect way to do that without getting too hot! Here are a few of our fav looks:

Look #1: Hot Toddy in Thermal

fall dress

This grey dress paired with booties screams fall! The button detail down the front almost makes it feel like long johns…in a sexy way 😉

Look #2: Put a Bow on It

foxy-58_2048x2048

Paging Blair Waldorf, we found a dress you’d LOVE! This burnt orange number doesn’t have an upper East side price tag though…at less than $30, it is a steal! Also…doesn’t it remind you of a pumpkin spice latte?! Nom.

Graphic Tee for Me and YOU!

One thing we love that is a year round staple is a good old graphic tee. You can wear them in the summer with shorts or in the winter with jeans and a sweater or jacket. The possibilities are endless. They also allow you to bring a little sass to your wardrobe which you know we are all about! Here are some SUPER cute tee’s we have in right now…better get them now because they are beauTEEful and will sell out fast 😉 !

Look #1: Graphic Tee for Gameday

gameday graphic tee

With the first NFL game of the season last night (go Panthers!) and college football already in full swing, you need one of these adorable baseball tees in your life. We promise you’ll be the talk of the tailgate.

Look #2: You Emoji My Mind

pizza graphic tee

If Josh Murray was a girl we bet he’d wear this graphic tee, do you think?! Lol. The Bachelor in Paradise star really does love is pizza, but we can’t really blame him. We love it in all of it’s cheesy goodness too! Pizza is forever.

Look #3: Tacos Are Life

tacos graphic tee

This is every girl’s mantra, can we get an amen?! Whew Tuesday is better because of tacos and your closet will be too. Add this adorable tank to show the men out there that you mean business!

Look #4: Dreamweaver

dream-catcher graphic tee

Looking for a tee that doesn’t involve the need to read, check out this cute graphic tee. The dream catcher is very on trend this season and the flowly silhouette is so comfortable.

So don’t make a mistake like Andi (and now probably Amanda) did…Choose cute tee’s over cute (but nuts) guys like Josh Murray. A sassy graphic tee will never let you down and will only bring happiness to your life 😉 .

(Disclosure…all of these comments on Josh Murray are strictly opinionated. Lolz.)

Pick Items with Rich Color

With the pumpkin spice latte rumored to hit Starbucks in just 10 short days (here’s the DL on all things pumpkin, you’re welcome) we are gearing up for fall, believe it or not! We know the temps are still high though so here is our suggestion: buy items that are rich in color! Darker shades are perfect for fall and we have some great pieces you can wear now and then!

Look #1: Make Me Maroon

rich color skirt

This maroon maxi skirt is the perfect piece to grab right now. Wear it like our model with a tank and flip flops or wear it with booties and a jean jacket next month!

Look #2: Maximum Wear Maxi

rich color maxi

Here is another maxi that is has fun rich color that would look great with a jean jacket or leather jacket thrown over it on a cooler day. We love maxi’s in the fall because they keep your legs warm 😉 .

Look #3: Rich Color Roses

rich color off the shoulder top

These roses are red and we promise you’ll feel anything but blue when you wear them 😉 . This off the shoulder top is a great transitional piece! Wear it now with shorts and in the future with jeans and over the knee black boots.

Shift Dress Necessities

There is nothing quite like a shift dress. You can wear it when it’s hot. You can wear it when it’s cold. You can wear it with flip flops, you can wear it with booties and be bold (sorry, we had a poet moment). Rhymes aside, this is the time of year to be thinking about pieces that will transition from one season to the next! Here are our fav basic shifts…

Look #1: High Neck Hottie

high neck shift dress

This flowy number is oh so chic. Great for now because it shows a little shoulder and great for September because of its suede-like texture.

Look #2: Basic Shift Dress

black shift dress

This little number (in black OR army green) is the definition of a shift dress. The crew neckline. The mid thigh length. It is anything but basic close up though…click here to see all the fun details!

Look # 3: Stripes for Days

Can’t you just see this dress with over the knee brown boots?!?! Excuse us as we get a tad excited for fall… and Christmas. WHATEVER. This shift is guaranteed to be your new favorite.

Pineapples, Flamingos & Flowers, OH MY!

Let’s face it, life is tough. From school to work to doing the dishes…it is a never ending cycle which is why we believe the items in your closet should brighten your day and always bring a smile to your face! Today’s looks are sure to do that and we even have found some fun graphics to help you remember to look on the bright side when wearing them!

Look #1: Flamingos, obvi

romper with flamingos

Seriously, is there anything happier than flamingos?!? We think not! This romper, complete with ruffles, is bright and cherry and perfect for everyday wear! And guess what…we have a top in the same pattern! Life made, right? So…be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons!

Look #2: Pineapple me happy

A close second to flamingos, pineapples have our HEARTS! This flowy tank  looks great with jeans or tucked into a high wasted skirt! We promise the compliments will be flowing! This graphic is such awesome motivation!

Look #3: Flowers for Days

flowered shift dress, no flamingos

There is nothing happier than a bunch of flowers…except maybe when you put them on a super comfy shift dress! The shift dress is a closet basic because you can throw it on flip flops for a trip to the grocery store OR add wedges and a necklace and head out to a fancy dinner. It is everything. Add flowers and done.

Short Shorts

We know…the title of this post made you immediately think of a Nair commercial. Lol, the song (listen to original here) will be stuck in your head all day now but it is also the perfect way to remind you of the most necessary of summer basics…shorts! We have tons in stock so it was hard to narrow it down to just three looks but here we go…

Look #1: High Wasted Shorts

Peach high wasted shorts

These bottoms look like something the original Nair girls would wear, don’t you think? It is crazy how styles come back around! Pair with a crop top like our model or tuck in your favorite top for a fancier look.

Look #2: Like PJs but Better

foxy-10_00f52cae-b650-48db-b40d-3e04bc7db768_2048x2048

These shorts are even more comfortable than they look (and we know they already look super comfy). They are our number one choice for these hot as heck days we have been having and a “must have” for your summer wardrobe.

Look #3: Isn’t that a Skirt?

foxy-75_7aed6c9b-9f10-4bbe-b5fc-39190d28d71d_2048x2048

Nope, we fooled you! These flowy bottoms are actually shorts! The tropical pattern makes them unique and necessary to go with your fav summer wedges!

All the White

You don’t have to be on the list for P. Diddy’s White Party or a Bride-to-be to rock white every week of the summer. It makes anyone look super tan and it cane be worn a million ways! Here are some of our favorite white-hot looks of this week!

Look #1: Ruffle Romper

white ruffle romper

This all-in-one outfit is EVERYTHING! A romper: check. White: check. Lace up detail: check. And to top it all off, adorable ruffles! Perfect for a night out on the town with hot pink accessories OR add some red and blue and you have the ultimate patriotic look! Uncle Sam would be proud!

Look #2: High Neck Dress

white high neck dress

The high neck style (remanent of the 90’s) is back and we love it! This dress says, “Lets go to dinner but you better take me out after.” And it is sure to make you shoulders look like you’ve been hitting the gym (in a good way).

Look #3: White Pants

white pants _2048x2048

These pants are a NO BRAINER! Hands down, you cannot approach warmer temperatures without white pants.  These are our fav. They are cut to the ankle (capris on taller ladies) and have a little slit in the knee for a slightly edgier look. You MUST have them for any summery top in your wardrobe.
