Caseapp Custom-Made Phone Case and Pink Flamingos.

Good morning from this gloomy Friday. What better way to brighten up my Friday (and yours) than this very bright and girly look featuring this year's IT Color - Serenity with lots of Bright Pink, Flamingos and a some Sun Yellow which comes in the form of my gorgeous, new iPhone case courtesy of Case AppI am being brutally honest, this post is long overdue. I have had this gorgeous case for a while and planned to write about it around Valentine's day. I started composing the post but never finished it and I completely forgot about the draft. But better late than never and better now that it is Spring because my gorgeous new personalized Case App iPhone case matches not only this outfit and the bright sunny day when I wore it but also the graphic flamingo I chose to add to my case matches all the flamingos in my look: the watch, the clutch and the scarf. 

Case App is an online retailer who specializes in custom-made cases and skins for your computers, iPads, iPhones, Galaxy phones and tablets and other Smart Phones. Their designs are so easy to create and customize to your liking. The website offers graphics, quotes, sayings, a variety of colors, a variety of patterns and many fonts for you to create exactly what you have in mind. You can even add a favorite photo there, like a picture of your kids, a city skyline, or the header and name of your blog. You can make your case or skin as fun and bright as you like or as simple, clean and professional as you like. I love their already-made designs. Their marble designs are particularly beautiful. 

But I am a sucker for color. I created a hard matte case for my iPhone using the Pink Flamingo graphic provided by the Caseapp website and centered the graphic in the middle. I decided to go for a bold, bright yellow as my background color and on top I chose the saying "go live" also provided by Case App. Two very true words and the cursive font is so cute too. I also wanted to add a little bit of my heart into my design. On the bottom I added a red heart (on the left corner) and I wrote a date next to it 19.01.13 (the day, the month and the year my daughter Vivian was born) which would be January 19th 2013 my daughter's birthdate. The whole process was very easy. It took me less than 5 minutes to create my custom-made case and the checkout process is just as easy. You can pay with a Visa card but Caseapp has also made it easy so you can use your Paypal account. Though the company ships from Europe, my phone case arrived in less than two weeks, nicely and safely packed, too. I will be definitely using CaseApp to order my next phone case for when I update into a new iPhone. I have my eye on a colorblocked one. I am thinking a colorblocked leopard, marble and blush glossy case. I will also order a skin for my iPad. For custom-made cases and skins in a great quality (I talk from experience) Caseapp is the place to go and I would definitely suggest them for your phones and tablets too. Plus, a custom-made case or skin makes a great gift, especially with Mother's Day around the corner next Sunday May 8th. Caseapp offers fantastic products for such reasonable prices. Even better, the wonderful people at Caseapp, have offered my readers a 20% discount. Use the code ELEGANCE20 to check out and you will get 20% off your entire purchase. This discount is good for the next 6 days, until May 4th which happens to be my birthday. To see more of their gorgeous phone, tablet and computer cases, check out their Instagram. Beautiful photos of gorgeous cases and skins are updated daily. So much inspiration and really such pretty little accessories.

Even Vivian had on her own Flamingo Graphic Shirt that day. She matched Mommy in Blues and Pinks, too.
I wore this outfit a few days ago (to work) when the weather was about 72 degrees though quite windy. I took the photos in the afternoon after work. On a recent shopping trip at the mall, I decided to go to Francesca's to see if I could find a cute off-shoulder top and a kimono. I didn't see this gorgeous eyelet/lacy baby blue (Serenity) cropped top at first but the sales girl brought it to me and I am so glad she did because the top was beautiful and fit me so well. Plus it was on sale for 20 bucks. From the same trip at Francesca's I picked up this gorgeous nude clutch with the stunning pink flamingos on the front and the pink faux leather tassel (it comes with a removable strap, too). The clutch is like a burlap material. I was lucky enough that same day to find this stunning very light+breezy baby blue (Serenity) scarf with light pink flamingos for 3 bucks at Charlotte Russe. Let's just say I had a great shopping day and got myself a few things as early birthday presents. The gold watch with the flamingo colorful face is from JC Penney and it was gifted recently from a cousin of mine. It worked so well with this outfit. I decided to pair my new cropped off-shoulder top with the pink suede mini skirt. The high-waist of the skirt worked well with the cropped top and I must say light blue and pink are gorgeous together. Isn't the scarf just perfect for that top, too? If it is a little chilly you can wrap it around to cover the bare shoulders. All the accessories here worked so well together. The Gold/Nude Silky Laceup Ballet Flats (which I have had for years) go with the Nude Clutch. The Gold Pave Cocktail Ring (also from Francesca's) paired so well with the Gold Watch. I also added a Neon Pink Bangle and a couple of my new pieces from the latest Rocksbox I received. The Fuchsia Statement Earrings and the Aqua/Mint Teardrop Cuff which I combined with my own Serenity+Rose Quartz Beaded Cuff also brought out the colors of the outfit. Lastly, I added an Olive-Grayish Teardrop Pendant - I love that the cuff bracelets, pendant necklace and drop earrings all have teardrop-shaped stones. My pendant necklace is courtesy of Wantable from last Spring but Francesca's has identical pendant necklaces in several colors for reasonable prices and they are currently Buy One - Get One 50% off. I am in a row this week with pretty colors: pastels on top and brights on the bottom (other examples here and here). How do you like this outfit? Have you added a cold-shoulder or off-shoulder top to your Spring closet yet?
