currently residing in san diego, and with another outfit post, to boot! yesterday was spent at the san diego zoo. now i have to admit that i am usually not a fan of zoos - squalid conditions and caged animals tend to make me rather depressed. however, the san diego zoo, which houses over 3,700 animals of more than 650 species and subspecies (thanks, wikipedia!) is also an international conservation organization and has worked toward the preservation of endangered species like the california condor, the giant panda, tigers, and a number of other species. witnessed some naaastay mating practices by the giraffes - there was pee drinking involved, that is all i am going to say - fell in love with the meerkats (which are equal parts cute and industrious), and marveled at the big cats. lunch was spent in the nearby park at prado, where i snapped these pics.
anatomy of this outfit: threw on this sheer new dress and slip from free people - both of which i picked up in santa barbara. toughened the whole thing up with my "leather" jacket from h&m and a pair of black boots. these boots, which i spotted at beyond retro in stockholm and consequently snatched up, work so well with an outfit like this because of their pointed toe and fringe detail. it keeps things rough, but still a little bit "prairie". it was also high time to pull out my signature hat with such amazing warm weather here in california. have to say i feel ready to hop in a beat-up red pick up truck, and make my way to coachella (windows down, sun shining, and wind in my hair) despite the fact that coachella is 28 days away and i do not posses a ticket.
