We Bought A Zoo

Top/Dress: c/o Zaful
Shoes: Modcloth (Salt Water Sandals 
Bag: Thrifted
Hat: Forever 21
Belt: Thrifted
Necklace: Vintage 
If you haven't noticed it already, this post really has nothing to do with the zoo (or the movie related to this title which I haven't even seen), besides the fact that this location reminds me of the zoo (weird I know). Our local zoo in Houston has quite an array of bamboo scattered throughout the grounds, and as soon as I happened upon this picture location that vision immediately came to my mind. Truly, there is something very unique about the zoo with the location, architecture, landscape, and animals and I am somehow always reminded of day outings taken back in the 1900's. 

As soon as I discovered this quaint corner near campus I of course started thinking of an outfit I wanted to take pictures of here, and settled on this mixed print ensemble. This look was actually created by layering this floral skirt over a yellow gingham dress that has been sitting around in my closet. I of course finished off the look with a brown belt and matching sandals, grabbed by straw hat, and this darling straw bag that I found at goodwill recently. 

All in all this is probably one of my favorite looks that I have photographed recently because it filled me with such excitement to capture something that felt so perfectly "me" and a look I am always trying to go for (really just trying to copy A Clothes Horse). I also managed to get an early start to take these pictures and was able to capture a bit of morning "golden hour" which made me EXTRA excited! 

However, that is all I have for now because I am currently on a week long road trip with my college roommate! If you want to see what we are up to make sure to follow along on my Instagram and Insta stories for all the fabulous adventures:)
