As an aspiring zoological surgeon I feel at home at the zoo. The zoo and the beach are definatly my happy places. So I was thrilled to get one last visit in at the zoo before 2017 commenced.
Recently I have been having class at the zoo and have been able to visit after my course. Unlike, when I travel to see my animals at a reserve or protected island, visiting the zoo is seeing conservation at work for me. Along with that its a place that is comforting and inspiring for me to see ecological protection in place. AVMA zoos help protect animals and allow them to have free range in acres that are assimilated to mimmic there home nautre.
Likewise, as an animal lover I absolutley adore stopping and seeing all of God’s creatures. In this most recent visit I got to feed giraffes and see a baby pygmy hippo. As always I stopped by to see my other favorites too. Macropod animals are definatly have my love so I had to hang out with my wallabies for awhile. Likewise, I also feed the lorikeets and got swarmed by several of them.
All in all it was a great day at the zoo because zoo days are the best days.
Currently the hight of football season is in play and the commencment of horse racing season has sprinted off for the roses. So, it was essential to find a semi casual outfit to fit these midday occassions. Normally, this is an attire dress code I can struggle with. However with this seasons fast moving trends and new graphic tshirts it was a easy match.
I decided on a multi colored tweed skirt from Shein. It was affordable and slimming. The a line skirt was girly with cues of color. The fabric had mixed pinks, blues, and yellows with the grey and black background. The skirt stopped mid thigh so was easy to match with a pair of navy heels. Flirty and fun was the theme of the skirt. It has been easy to utilize in the Melbourne Racetrack.
Likewise, I was in need of a top. After living in the south I enjoy brining in influences of that hospitality. Draper James had several graphic tshirts that I could have paired my skirt with. The welcoming and charming slogans are fun mockings of “southernisms” of the south. However, I opted on the Hold Your Horses top. It was perfect for a casual day at the races and perfect for later day tailgates.
Needless to say, I found the perfect outfit for a semi causal day. I matched the tweed Shein shirt with a Draper James top. To accesseroize I added navy heels that matched my tops text and a white hat for the sunny day ahead.
One thing I detest is waiting in lines for several hours filled with people fighting over marked up products under the guise of a sale. So, I decided to complie a list of places that have actual sales. Better yet, online sales with no lines. This way others might not be captured in the hassel of post Holiday agony. More importantly you can feast on left overs from friendsgiving in the comfort of your best friends apartment while snaking on cranbarry jelly ang gluten free rolls.
