Yesterday I saw Willow to the airport where she boarded the flight to Italy to visit with some of her friends. As much as I love her, she’s not especially enthralled visiting museums and gardens. Anne and I took the opportunity to celebrate Earth Day in spectacular fashion with a visit to the breath-taking Botanical Gardens.
Copenhagen may be a bustling metropolis, but they’ve done a very nice job with keeping things green; there are parks and large trees planted throughout our little part of the city. That being said, it’s still no substitute for the wild growth that I’ve grown up around. The Botanical Gardens offer me a little help when it comes to avoiding being homesick.
While we were there, we got rained on quite a bit, and the ground was soggy in some areas. As the day has worn on, though, the clouds have parted and the sun has emerged. Still, despite the damp conditions, we had a nice time. I especially enjoyed taking pictures of the nature porn all around us.
We were both inspired by the botanical gardens, without realizing it. We’re down to the last ten outfits for our ten-piece capsule wardrobe, not counting the looks I’m sharing today. I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since we started.
I wanted to be able to navigate the park without the fear of landing face down in the mud, and I wanted to be able to walk around the city after the fact, so flats made sense. I kept things simple, and relatively warm by wearing my go-to jeans and a black blouse. Things were feeling a bit hum drum, so I added my delicate gold feather pendant necklace, matching bracelet, olive scarf, and topped it off—literally—with my olive crocheted cap. I was feeling the green.
Anne, feeling inspired by Earth Day as well, decided to layer the floral maxi dress beneath the green quarter-length sleeve blouse. She also wanted to keep warm, so she’s also wearing a pair of hidden leggings underneath, smart girl. Because of the lovely fuchsia in the skirt, she decided to wear the matching scarf, finishing things off with the turquoise necklace. A very colorful, very Anne, look.
