Fun and Floral at the Zoo

 Hi everyone! Today I spent my day at the zoo, it was so much fun seeing all the different animals. I saw anteaters, elephants, monkeys, birds and many more animals. I added a few of my favorite photos I took of the animals ,and a bunch of photos of today's outfit. 


These little monkey's cuddling was so adorable!

Admiring the beauty of all of the birds.

It was very warm so a snow cone was a great way to cool off!

Notice the pineapple on the top of the fountain ;)

How cute is the little otter swimming
The baby gorilla was probably one of my favorite animals, he was so cute and playful!


I have to admit, I was a little jealous of this polar bear cooling off in a swimming pool.

Topsiding on the Docks

Hey everyone! I'm really excited about today's post because it's my first post ever wearing Sperry's! I absolutely love my Sperry's, they are super cute and I know once I break them in they will be super comfortable. I paired my Sperry's with white jeans, a striped t-shirt, and nautical accessories. I added a nautical touch to my jeans by adding one of my favorite accessories, Poppy Clips! Poppy Clips are the perfect way to add an extra pop to any outfit. There are so many ways to wear them. They can be worn on scarves, shirts, jeans, purses, shorts, and anything you can think of! Get yourself a pair of Poppy Clips on www.poppyclips.com

Back to School Outfit // Collab with StyleBySalli

 Hey everyone! Today I'm doing a back to school outfit collaboration with my friend Salli, from www.stylebysalli.blogspot.com . If you don't read her blog, you definitely should, especially because of the amazing new design.
Even though I wear a uniform, I styled an outfit I think would be perfect for back to school. It's comfortable, yet cute and perfect for sitting in class and moving around school all day. I paired it with the perfect Sloane Ranger tote for carrying books around. For school, I don't usually wear many rings or bracelets because sometimes they get in the way when trying to complete school work. I wore comfortable shoes because if your not comfortable you can't focus in class, which is never good. Hope you enjoy this post. let me know what other posts you would like to see in my back to school series. Maybe how I accessorize a uniform, how I organize my agenda, I'm open to any ideas so if you have something you would like to see comment and let me know! 


For school I always want the option to put my hair up, incase it's bothering me during class.

Seeing as I don't start school for another 2 weeks or so I don't have much in my tote yet. I do have one of my binders with the DIY binder sides and covers I made. Find the tutorials I made here, and here. I'm so excited to use this tote, it'll fit everything I need, and has a nice zip pocket inside.

Here's a peek at Salli's post! Head over to www.stylebysalli.blogspot.com to see more.
