Fashion isn't a priority at the zoo (although you must admit the leopard has an incredibly stylish coat), but feeling comfortable and confident is always a good thing. Here are some simple pieces which can help you achieve precisely that: Start with your favorite straight legs jeans in a dark wash. Add a striped cotton tee in dark colors with a high neckline. Things get messy at the zoo, and you'll be bending over a lot to pick up teensy tots so they can see the giraffes. Then add your one investment: Quality shoes, in this case, a brilliant red pair of stylish yet sensible mocs by MICHAEL Michael Kors. At $98, they're not cheap but you'll be on your feet a lot and these will match any neutral outfit so the cost per wear will make it all worthwhile. My favorite part of this look has to be the colorful and durable madras tote from L.L. Bean that will easily fit your Siggs, sesame sticks and other essentials—and it's just $19. Finishing touches include yellow sunglasses and a cute belt, both from Old Navy.
