You know when you have the perfect outfit planned to a T? The perfect blend of grunge, femininity, and pre-fall style. Ready to shoot in a great location (if you’re not a blogger then skip this part), and then Mother Nature comes a-calling.
We had plans to visit the National Aquarium with Tanvi and her husband; I knew I wanted to wear something cool and comfortable that could easily be worn through fall. I got dressed and then looked at the weather; with a heat index of 110 degrees I ditched my denim jacket and Adidas Stan Smiths in favor of easy breezy Birkenstocks. That being said, please go forth with this short but sweet outfit post and just imagine it with different shoes. I beg of you, do not think that I thought this worked other than for the sake of saving myself from potentially sweaty feet.

But I digress, despite my sartorial inner-fiasco it was an amazing day. You all know I’m a huge animal lover so being able to see these creatures, pet sting rays and jellyfish (!!), and ogle at sharks was a perfect day in my books!
