1. Twenty-Six


    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.  












    crop top: Topshop

    jacket: H&M

    skirt: H&M

    bag: ONA (won in a giveaway)

    shoes: c/o Big Buddha

  2. Flamingos, and Giraffes, and Deer, Oh My!


    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!
