Navy stripes + green accents | What I wore to the zoo

A quick reminder that there is ONE DAY LEFT to enter the “Wear to Where?” blog tour GIVEAWAY! 😀

On a rare day off together, Sam and I decided to visit the zoo (we’re members of the Oregon Zoo here in Portland). For a casual day out, I put together a simple variation of an outfit I’ve worn before, as seen here. Before, I paired navy stripes with bright pink accents; today, it’s green accents.

Obviously, I like the look of a monochromatic base topped with colorful scarves.

The green accents started with a new scarf my husband got for me from a recent writing conference. It’s a soft green color, and the text on the scarf is from one of my favorite books, Anne of Green Gables! 😀 I then added my peridot-and-silver earrings, courtesy of Anjolee Jewelry (see review here), and the peridot set off my scarf perfectly!

And below you can see the colorful pink accents on the back of my navy Hunter rain boots! The rain boots were a good choice, as it was off-and-on rainy that day, along with puddles left over from the day before.

We took these photos at the zoo, by where the lions are (my favorites, ’cause I’m a Leo!). I’ve had multiple posts about what I wore to the zoo — it’s one of our favorite destinations for a casual day out together — which you can see here, here, and here.

      Thanks, Alice! My husband and I have visited zoos in several different countries — and our favorite time to go is when it’s raining! (Less people = less crowds) It’s funny to me how many blog posts I have collected over the years that feature outfits I’ve worn to the zoo! 😀
