I have never experienced a more finicky April, one day it is sunny and 70 degrees and the next day it is gloomy, rainy and can’t get passed 50 degrees. This weather has totally had an impact on my blog because all I want to do is go outside and shoot photos, but lately it seems like it is so easy to miss that short window of opportunity, or in my case sunny, warm weather. However, not all days are bad days and luckily we have been blessed with some beautiful days (although I can count them on one hand). So keep on reading to see one of my favorite spring outfits featuring some of the trendiest pieces for this season. When the sun is shining bright (and today is not one of those days), I love breaking out my new jeans from Ruby and Jenna. I love the distressed and embroidered floral details. I am sure you can agree that it seems lately any store you walk into, you can find a pair of denim, whether a denim jacket or a pair of jeans featuring some sort of embroidered pattern.

         Flashback to fourth grade, my 10-year-old self is bursting with excitement on the bus heading to the Bronx Zoo. The zoo was the best field trip in elementary school. Dressed in my school’s gym uniform, friends by my side, and my mom as a chaperone, it was a trip that went in the memory book. Flash forward to now; my 20-year-old self experienced that same feeling of anticipation when my dad wanted to take me and my older sister to the Bronx Zoo. Even in our 20s, my sister and me felt like little kids going on a field trip. Throughout the 40-minute car ride, we mapped out what animals we wanted to see first and what we were looking forward to the most. Of course, I was looking forward to seeing the elephants, giraffes, and tigers.          When we finally arrived at the zoo, it felt like yesterday I was at the Bronx Zoo, not 10 years ago. Our adventure began with lots of walking, lots of animals, and lots of fun.          For this trip to the zoo, I was psyched to put together a zoo-like outfit. Back in fourth grade, my only option was my gray…
