Spent some time today at the @thewcs @bronxzoo visiting with conservation photographer @julielarsenmaher . She enlightened me on the work she’s doing plus was kind enough to provide me with a day pass to the zoo. Being a dual purpose outing, figuring out what to wear was a fun challenge. I wanted to be professional and respectful yet it was pouring rain. Had to be practical and classy. This is what I came up with.•Old school @patagonia organic cotton plaid shirt I swoop up when someone was done with it.•The fabulous Michelle DeCourcy vintage jacket gifted to me by my dear friend @ekdean88 a few years ago and will stay in my wardrobe for years to come.•Wallace & Barnes cotton pants I acquired a few years back and wear at least once a week. While they faded fast, they are holding up great.•Belt I got an estate sale back in the day when I lived in SF.•Boots are @sorelfootwear Sorel is a subsidiary of Columbia Sportswear based in Portland, OR (my home town). It is a brand that values ethical, sustainable manufacturing practices. Plus, they are legendary for their durability and can last up to 10 years.•To finalize the look, I wrapped myself with the green scarf @ramzit gave to me as a thank you gift. He is the one who connected me to Julie so I thought it was a great way to bring the circle around. Green is for tree-hugger. 🌳•While it would be awesome if all animals could be free in their natural environment, the reality is humans have a history of wiping out wildlife. They need our help. The WCS is an established and inspiring wildlife conversation organization doing outstanding work. It was an absolute pleasure to learn more about their mission and to see if there are ways in which I can get involved.
