i spent my past wednesday at the toronto zoo, seeing all the animals and petting sting rays. next to the awesome, super friendly sting rays (they are like dogs, they come right up to you to be pet), my favourite animals are always the big cats. tigers, leopards and cougars are so powerful and beautiful. what would be better then capturing that beauty in clothing. when i found this skirt thrifting i was so excited. the colours are great and it has big cats all over it. i was planning on shortening it but i couldn't wait to wear it any longer so i just rolled it up like my old kilt wearing school uniform days and rocked it. *** it's weird to see these with my hair back, so not used to it.
top: urban
skirt and belt: thrifted
shoes: nine west
necklace: banana republic
bag: tylie malibu

you look gorgeous!!! and you're so right about that skirt- it looks so much like the topshop one i have! and LOL about rolling up school girl skirts!!! We used to do that too!! haha...but then i finally got mine altered, was more flattering: the thick kilt fabric and the wasit roll: not the best combo lol- but it was safer than altering, if the principle came around and asked you to pull down your skirt.

I need to go to the Zoo, have wanted to go for three summers now, but still haven't made it...then again,there's something i find disturbing about wild animals locked up in a climate they aren't meant to exist in....with people pointing at them and cooing lol! kinda wrong, no?! but i'm no activist and i'd def still go to the zoo!

OK well back to the outfit: gorgeous and i love the pop of nail polish colour and your hair looks amazing up: perfect for summer. i have been thinking about cutting mine to my shoulders in a gwyneth style cut come october, but it's a bit of a commitment to straight hair then for me, as i don't think that cut would be a great curly look...still debating...
