Secret Gardens

10.01.2012


H and M tulip dress (similar here), 
Vera Wang cardigan, 
Oliver People's sunglasses
Alexander McQueen hobo bag (last seen here).

I have to say, I think i'm finally getting used to Fall. The weather in New York has been gorgeous as of late, with bright & sunny days followed by slightly crisper nights. I'm starting to learn to bring a sweater out with me, and finally getting used to incorporating the other half of my closet that's been left dormant during the past five months. 

On this particular day, Micol and I rode our bikes up to The Jungle, a gorgeous plant nursery nearby, in order to get some inspiration for our 'gardens' as we head into colder months. Of course, Micol actually has a backyard, while I only have a row of plants on my balcony, but a girl can still try...

Feeling a little bored with my usual hairdo, I also made Micol add these braids into my hair to give my style a little kick. I love the resulting look! Just wish I could learn to do it on myself... but hey, isn't that what friends are for?
