Impromptu Zoo


On Wednesday, I was sitting on the front porch, enjoying my breakfast and morning Intsagram feed. The weather was absolutely beautiful and the trees were starting to bloom so we decided to take the kids to a surpise trip to the zoo. We stopped at Aldi for some picnic snacks and headed out.

I wore one of my favorite dresses from Tatyana Boutique via Modcloth and snood handmade by me.

It was supposed to storm that afternoon so there were no big crowds but it never did rain!

I posted some silly animal selfies on Instagram and we had lunch with the animals. 

After the zoo, the kids still had some energy so we wore them out at the St Louis History Museum, which has lots of interactive stuff for kids and lots of beautiful fashion for mommies. I want this dress!!

Also, can I just steal this entire pink kitchen exhibit and put it in my house?! It's funny seeing things that you actually own in museums. Lots of these kitchen bits are very similar to fixtures and dishes in my own house!

  1. That kitchen is amazing! A trip to the zoo and a museum, perfect day out!x

  2. What a fun trip! I have the same dress from Tatyana, and wear it constantly during the summer months. It's adorable on its own, but is so easy to accessorize too.


  3. Each and every time we go to St. Louis, we try to go to the zoo and the City Museum. We shall have to put the History Museum on the list of must-see's now, as well!

  4. I adore your snoods! And a pink kitchen...swoon.

  5. Looks like everyone had a great time! I really love this dress, it's got a fantastic Edwardian feel with the stripes and the shape of the bodice. You really look beautiful.

  6. I just adore your dress!! And such a lovely day to spend with your kids! I think next time I'm at my zoo and local museums, I'll be sure to take loads of photos. I am quite jealous of the history museum, I would never leave if I saw that kitchen.

  9. The kitchen and the wallpaper sample! So great! I would TOTALLY paper a wall with that.

  10. I have oggled over there dress for awhile now! And it looks marvelous on you! Also sounds like you all had a great time! And museum looks like such fun!


  11. What a cool museum! That's the kind of place that I'd probably become to entrenched in, they'd be turning off the lights for the night before I'd even realized how much time I'd actually spent there. :)
