A few days ago, I spent an afternoon at Kew Gardens with two of my gorgeous girlfriends, Katie and Saphia. All the flowers were gloriously blooming, the sun was shining, and we had an absolutely lovely day! We were on our feet for about 5 or 6 hours (and Katie and I had been jogging that morning), so my legs were absolutely dead by the end of the day.
I decided to wear my new favorite skirt and opted for bright colors to mirror the blooming flowers.
Wearing: See by Chloé floral print skirt;
American Apparel double u-neck dress in evergreen, worn as a top;
Mango purple cardigan;
LV epi speedy 25 in noir;
Polaroid Excite sunglasses;
and Make Up Store lipstick in Mandy.
We took so many pictures that it was hard to pick just a few to share with you!
On our last visit a year and a half ago,
I tried to befriend a peacock
and ended up scaring the poor guy.
This time I did the same, only the object of
my affection was a duck.
He was scared, too.
I should probably learn to leave
the animals alone...
We climbed up onto a treetop walkway.
Here I am, peeking over the edge.
We went into an evolution cave for a bit of a history lesson.
You can't tell, but there's a waterfall behind me;
in these pictures I was trying to balance myself on a log
without falling into the water!
Saphia and I chatting on a bench.
My legs clearly need some sun...
We found an odd little box, filled with coins
and flowers. I was peeking inside,
trying to figure out what it was all about!
Wearing an illicit flower in my hair -
Katie 'found' (i.e. picked) one for each of us, but
Saphia thought we would get arrested
so hid hers away!
Pinks & purples - my favorite colors
Queen Anne had a cottage made for herself,
right in the middle of Kew Gardens.
We couldn't go inside, although we knocked and knocked and no one answered!
We were hoping that the Queen's ghost would
let us in!
What's your favorite thing to do when the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming?
