Perhaps one of the most unique and memorable wedding venues I’ve ever seen is the San Diego Safari Park’s Mombasa Lagoon.  Just last weekend we were at a friend’s ceremony beside pelicans, storks, herons, egrets, and (my favorite) flamingos!




Knowing that the backdrop to this special day was going to include some feathered friends, I went bold with an electric flamingo-pink knit tie, the second in a series of great products I’m featuring from San Francisco-based Bows ‘N Ties.  They were kind enough to send me some amazing products to check out and I’m happy to share with you how I styled them.

Mixing colors and textures worked really well since it was a mellow summertime wedding; I chose fine-knit dress slacks, a small-patterned dress shirt, a casual linen blazer, a bright-hued knit tie, and small silver details – including a little feather pin for something unique and memorable!
