Tribal Ruffles

Can you believe that I actually forgot to do a post last night!? I had the photos all downloaded and everything but just forgot. This was yesterday's outfit to the zoo. The inspiration came from the ruche website lookbook:
 I liked this outfit so much that wanted to order the cardigan and the top. Then I found a very similar top from Forever 21 (the one I have on) of course at a much lower price and got that. The cardigan though I ordered. It is so soft and flowy...

 Poses at the Orangutan exhibit at the zoo. We like coming here cause the ground is that soft poured recycled tires and there are places for kids to climb and jump from. Good for snack breaks and diaper change breaks. And I guess photo shoots too.

 Wearing the necklace and the bracelet the kids got me for my b-day. My son immediately recognized and said 'I got you this'! I wore the butterfly side up.

Had a playdate at the zoo yesterday morning. Kids are so used to the animals now so they only watch for like 2 minutes and the rest of the time they like to run around together and just play imaginary games. Our zoo is huge so we only cover a fraction of the area in each visit but even that is a lot of walking up and down hill.
My back is all messed up so I couldn't go to my weight lifting class at the gym. Stayed at home in the afternoon with the kids.
My son was styling in his outfit yesterday!

The entire gorilla clan was out!

Baby panda is growing up so fast!


  1. Love this outfit! That vest is just great. I can see you remixing this a lot. Perfect for a day at the zoo! We are going this Friday and I cannot wait!

    Question: how did you get your Favorite Looks on your side bar? That's really cool.

    Thanks, Heather
