Style Session: Trips to the Zoo

We are so lucky in Chicago that we have a FREE zoo right in the middle of the city! When we weather is nice, it's so easy to just go grab brunch and take a relaxing stroll through the zoo while seeing all the awesome and wonderful animals! And that is precisely what I did this past weekend!

I knew my boyfriend and I were going to be going to the zoo (because well the weather was just too pretty not to!) so I wanted to wear something that would be both comfortable and effortless. I knew that this shirtdress from local Chicago boutique, Akira, would be the perfect choice! 

The shirtdress is so comfortable. I love menswear for women, and this checkered print makes it look like I just threw on my boyfriend's shirt and walked out the door (...I probably could. He's so darn tall.) The matching simple belt allows me to tie the shirt so that even though I am rocking menswear, I still can show a feminine waist.

What's your favorite effortless piece?

Anytime I go to places like the zoo, I always like to carry a big tote for my camera. Plus I am a big scrapbooker! (I know, I know... I'm not 60+, but scrapbooking is really fun! You should give it a try!) So I like to have a tote to gather knick knacks to scrapbook later like brochures from the trip.
