Blazer – So old I don’t remember (similar under $30) | Turtleneck – The Limited (similar under $30) | Jeans – Express | Boots – DSW (similar) | Necklace – NY&Co (similar) | Bracelet – gift (similar)

Actually, I don’t have zoo photos for you.  Sorry to disappoint!  We ended up having to skedaddle out of the zoo to catch our bus and I felt awkward asking my coworker to hang around longer while I took photos of myself. He doesn’t know about this here blog.

Anyway! On to the outfit.  You may be wondering what’s up with the random blue necklace.  Well, I originally saw this combo of tan, black, and leopard with a blue purse and thought it was something I could recreate.  I don’t own a blue purse so instead I went with blue jewelry.  Sadly, the weather is not conducive to leopard print ballet flats today so brown riding boots it is.

You know what’s also not working today? My brain. It’s been one heck of a week at work and I’ve been getting up early to get in my training for the Illinois Marathon. This will be my fourth marathon but the training never gets easier.  Which is why days like today I love that I’ve saved so many outfit ideas on Pinterest.  Makes getting dressed so much easier.

      Well, we didn’t really get to spend any time in the actual zoo. Just touring Cafe Brauer for an event we’re doing at the end of April. But I’d never been in there before so that was a fun adventure!

      I actually bought my hat in a boutique in Sausalito, California! I get so many compliments on it and I wish I could find more like it so I could point people in that direction.

    wow, good luck with training for your marathon! I’m going to have to go read your running blog so I can see what your training is, most of my friends run races and they always like “oh, I’m just going to go for a 16 mile run tonight” and I’m always think sure, sure, JUST 16 miles, I’ll try to eek out 4.

    Hah, good luck anyways, that’s pretty cool that you’re going on to your forth! I really like the blue necklace, I like the little bit of color with all of the neutrals and there’s that pair of gorgeous boots again!

      Hahaha! I can usually pull a 8 miles out of nowhere but anything longer than that I need to train up to by slowly increasing my longest run by half a mile to a mile.
