I wore this outfit to the Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden in Columbia South Carolina . When I did a travel post on our visit, so many of you commented on the outfit I thought I should do a separate fashion post on it.
When I heard my husband was taking me to a botanical garden, I wanted to wear something pretty because I knew he'd be taking a lot of pictures. But I had a bit of a dilemma, because I also knew we'd be walking a lot that day, and it would be hot, so I had to wear something that was comfortable. I decided on this midi skirt because it has an elastic waist (Elastic in the back. The front of the skirt is a band.) and a sleeveless top. Footwear was the real challenge. Of course a killer pair of heels would have looked the best, but I knew I'd be walking for miles so I chose a sporty rose gold sandal by Adrienne Vittadini (DSW).
For sun protection, I wore a black straw hat. I carried a large straw handbag to hold all my essentials for the day (like the water bottle you can see poking out in almost all the pictures! haha! )
The purple top I purchased last year from JCPenney. It has a key hole opening in the back with a lace inlet panel and a narrow ruffle.
I have shown this top to you twice before HERE and HERE, and would you believe I wore this top to another zoo? haha! Too funny. It must be the top perfect for wearing to zoos!
Have a Great Day! Amy
