We take a trip to the zoo around this time every year (usually around my birthday), and this year we had a gorgeous day for it! and you guys, there was a one month old baby giraffe. named Max. One month old. Can you just picture the cuteness?!

It’s my biiiiiiiirthday today! It’s also Earth Day. Which makes it my b-earth-day.
Boo and I spent this past saturday doing our semi-traditional birthday celebration - a visit to the zoo. I love a good themed outfit, so obviously I had to wear my new animal print crop top. I mean, come on. It only made sense. And my friends, the giraffes, told me they appreciated the sentiment.

Where did I wanna spend my 25th Birthday? At the zoo, of course! The last few years that I lived in Buffalo, it kind of became tradition for Boo and I to go to the zoo right around my birthday. So I was really excited when the weather was so nice this past saturday, so we could carry on the tradition! I posted a few photos in my instagram recap yesterday, so I won’t overload on the animal photos.
Instead, lets talk about my dress! If you follow along on Instagram, you may have seen that I was making myself a birthday dress. Well, ta-daaaaaaa. I picked this fabric up on a whim from the clearance section of Joanns. I had planned to whip up my own design, but seeing as I waited until the last minute (typical), I ended up using this Colette pattern. And I love it! Although, I’m pretty sure the pattern was designed for busty gals, because I had to alter it a loooooot up top. So be warned, if you want to give this pattern a try yourself!
