A day at the zoo!

I swear that I am almost finished with holiday-related posts! 
Whilst in La Rochelle, we went to a zoo for half a day. Natur'Zoo de Mervent wasn't as big as say, London or Edinburgh zoo, which made it perfect for visiting in temperatures of over 30 degrees, as spending a whole day there would have been too much. There were picnic benches in the carpark, which is in the middle of a forest, so it was lovely to sit there and eat our food, before going into the zoo.  

I wore the skirt I made from the fabric I was sent by Minted.com (you can read my review of them here), with a Zara embroidered lace top my Aunt gave me, and the cuff bracelet which came in kit form in the May edition of 'My Little Box'. The colours of the thread on the bracelet compliment the colours in my skirt perfectly, and it was a perfect outfit for the temperature and setting, as it was comfy enough to wear all day. 

Jasmine taking a selfie with a goat.... as you do. 
There was a small farm where they had guinea pigs and a pen of goats and llamas, where you got to walk through and stroke them, the selfie taking was optional.

There was also a walk through enclosure of lemurs, and most of them seemed to be sleeping in the grass, which sounds like a pretty good life to me.

Until next time,
