Birthday Outfit And A Trip To The Zoo


aqua and gold earrings - F21
50s plaid dress - birthday gift from my dad from Small Earth Vintage!
tan t-strap wedges - DSW

Here's what I wore on my birthday day (Sunday). I was worried it was going to thunderstorm but it just rained a little while we were still in bed. I thought it was a little cooler than it was so I opted to wear this cute dress I got as a gift from my dad. The fabric is pretty airy, to my delight, so I wasn't too hot after all.


Birthday flowers from my friend Elise!

First Michael and I went to Yolk for a decadent breakfast. We were so stuffed, I don't think I've ever not felt like bursting after eating there. We poked around Paper Source afterwards since it was a block away and Michael bought himself a birthday present; a book for keeping track of music lists (songs to make out to, songs you want played at your funeral, etc). Then we headed to the Lincoln Park Zoo.


We saw pretty much everything there, and that zoo is great because it's free. I don't wanna recap each animal I saw and what they did so I'm just going to post a million photos. Look at how cute that baby panther in a box is! Omg.

















Lots of sleeping fuzzies. I'll leave you with this video of me screwing with Michael at the gift shop:

oh, that Small Earth Vintage dress is a beauty on you! And it looks like you barely wear make-up. Are you one of those girls blessed with nearly perfect skin? LUCKY!

I was on vacation when you posted this, so I am late catching up, but just wanted to say--gorgeous! The dress looks so fantastic on you. :) It is just amazing to see what was previously only on my dress form on a beautiful real life beauty like you!
