Today was the last day of my little two week break from law school, so I decided to go on one last adventure. The weather was supposed to be mid-80s and overcast, so I decided I'd head to the Nashville Zoo. It actually ended up being in the high 90s and sunny (thanks a lot Apple weather) but I had so much fun wandering around, seeing all the animals and eating Dip 'n' Dots. The flamingos lagoon is my favorite and I got a lot of laughs out of hearing kids try to wrap their minds around why they weren't flying away. Also, this parasol made me feel like the Tightrope Walker from Haunted Mansion.... which is always a plus.
This Milena Strawberry Playsuit from Collectif is not only wonderful for a trip to the zoo, but it's my VERY FIRST PLAYSUIT! Being petite is both a blessing and a curse (usually a curse) so though I've tried on about 5934735689 rompers/playsuits, I've never found one that wasn't either 1) baggy in the crotch or 2) had excessive amounts of fabric between the bust and waist. But, this one is PERFECT. The back is shired elastic, it has pockets which are lined with cute little red ruffles (as are the bustline and legs) and the straps can be worn multiple ways, or removed completely. Since I really love the look of 2 or 3 piece playsuits, I added the Nani Swing Skirt for a little versatility.
