A Day at the Zoo

SF Zoo



Bows and Stripes




High Profile






Big Red Bird, Little Red Dress


Clover's first trip to the zoo (on a day about as gorgeous as it gets in San Francisco) and my first attempt at wearing this thrifted vintage straw hat w/ black velvet bow (fittingly, the tag reads: Macy*s San Francisco). Clover wore the cutest vintage dress too, a recently handed down thrift find from her auntie.

Aside from the previously mentioned bench fixation, I think she had more fun on the playground slide than anything else (note to self: the park would have been cheaper)... ah, but then I would have missed seeing those adorable little monkeys with mustaches :)

oooh those mustachioed monkeys just made me want to do one of those little mouse laughs from the disney cinderella, all full bodied but cheepy like a bird at the same time.

You and Clover both look darn cute, but my favorite thing is that sailor-esque top you're wearing! And I love your belted jacket.

Andrea said...

little clover is adorable! I say that everytime but she just is!

Your outfit is really tops here, and my favorite picture of all time has to be that sleepy bear all curled up for a nap :)

Your zoo looks pretty amazing.

Love the shot of Clover with the parrot statue, and I love your top! I think the zoo was worth it for those mustashio monkeys, definitely.

I especially love the flamingos and the first giraffe. My favourites!

And what I meant to say about them before I got carried away and pressed enter too early was that I loved the colour and light and the way they fell in the picture.
