Day Trip to the Zoo and OOTD!

Last monday, Ashley and I took a trip to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. It was such a beautiful day (if a little bit windy) and such a lovely experience. Although we were one of the few couples there who weren’t dragging small children along with them, I’d definitely recommend it for an amazing day out for all ages. I just thought I’d show you some pictures from our day, including a little OOTD.

You also might have spotted my “Zootime” necklace. This is a make your own words necklace I bought from Topshop a while back. When I saw it I absolutely had to have it and although it usually says Ohana, I thought this would be a welcome change for the day.

My favourite part of the day was easily the sealion show. Although they have so many cool things going on throughout the day. We got to watch the chimps and penguins feeding (not together!), as well as being allowed to feed carrots to their three beautiful bears. They have a really cute train that goes around the area they call Asia and  have an amazing bird show too!

The things that they can do are just so incredible!!

My hand isn’t quite as big as an elephant’s foot…


We saw tigers and leopards too but none of them felt like posing for pictures unfortunately. But it was an amazing day and I’d go back in a heartbeat.
