Capsule Wardrobe # 21 & 22
With Willow off to Italy, Anne and I decided to pounce on the opportunity to celebrate Earth day (very belatedly - a whole month!) by doing something Willow would be less than thrilled to participate in: visiting the Copenhagen Botanical Gardens.
Now, granted, this time of year it’s wet and cold, and we’re a whole month off…but it was still beautiful – and I’ve found that the best photographs are often post-rain. Lucky us :) Is there really a wrong day to celebrate the earth? Nah ;)
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 amongst in the mountains. 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 in our chosen looks today. Including today’s nature-inspired outfits, we’re down to needing just eight more.
Want to hear a little secret? I didn’t think we’d make the thirty outfits in thirty days goal – and yet, here we are, closing in on it…eight days, eight outfits…doable :)
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 in a big way.
Anne, feeling inspired as well, decided to layer the floral maxi dress beneath the green quarter-length sleeve blouse. She’s got a natural grace to her, so no fear of falling face-down in the soggy earth (like yours truly). She also wanted to keep warm, so she’s also wearing a pair of hidden leggings beneath, making use of the winterizing strategy I’ve clung to for ages; 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. Charming, as always, my dear.
I hope you enjoyed the capsule wardrobe looks we shared today – thanks for stopping in to share in our belated-Earth Day celebration with us :)
