Well, it happened. I forgot SAM in the car. And if you are like “who is Sam?” let me tell you, that is my tripod. I named it Sam after Samwise Gamgee, everyone needs a SAM. Anyways, I forgot my tripod and needed to get some blog work done. Was one of the reasons we went to the zoo! But, I had a stroller and I made use of what I had, even it I looked like a complete weirdo idiot.
“DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING”
Or in this case take photos like no one is watching. Because seriously, no one was. They were all looking at their phones and the animals. Or talking about how cold it was in Florida for the day. Guys, I had to explain wind chill to my Floridian hubby, he was confusing it with “feels like”. While a wind chill can make things “feel like” it is a lower temp, there is a science behind it and yes even though it says 52 degrees F outside, with the wind chills we had it was closer to 30. That is cold.
So, how to dress for the day? Well to start I put my wee lad in his new Gymboree parka and Star Wars hat. We got the coat for New York, and it came in handy. I wore my pink coat from Calvin Klein and matched it up with an Asos maternity tee and Motherhood jeans with some basic tall boots. It was cold out and so, I dressed more for it.
The thing I love about this look is the coat. The pink color of this winter coat is a super uplifting contrast to some muted hue of the khaki or the basic black. It’s bright color is really uplifting for a rather gloomy and doomy day. I love the bright color coats so much, I think we need to embrace them more! So, at the end of this post I will have some of my faves picked out! This bright pink Calvin Klein jacket just made the gloomy brighter by a bit and worn with a bright lipstick you can not go wrong!
I love this outfit, and even though my tripod was in the car, I was just not in the mood to go back and get it. Not when my boy was having so much fun at the zoo. Improvising can be a blogger’s best asset and adapting to situations can be helpful. We have to adapt to out environment when creating content for our blogs. And this time was at the zoo and without a tripod. I still think I did alright.
