Sombreness is usually my go-to mood, when it comes to taking outfit photos. Looking solemnly into the distance, trying to hold back a smile or laugh. But with what’s happening in the UK right now, it’s hard not to have that kind of expression. At the beginning of this year, I told myself to discover more of this country I’ve been calling home for nearly 5 years, visiting every little corner of London and exploring the British countryside. I’ve not been doing particularly well with sticking to this resolution, but a few weeks ago I’ve finally made it to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew Gardens. I guess, I have to hurry up and tick off all the places I want to go to soon, who knows what the next few months will bring with the UK leaving the EU.
Wearing my favourite dress and jumper combination, Emma, Dodo and I made it down to West London to wander around the botanic gardens. Like pretty much any day in London, it was a grey day, warm enough to not wear tights, but not enough to go for a full sleeveless outfit. Or you could just spend the whole day in the Palm House, enjoying tropical plants and temperatures. Next to the Princess of Wales Conservatory, probably everyone’s favourite part of Kew Gardens. From giant monsteras and lily pads to all kinds of succulents and cacti. But make sure to bring blotting paper, because a jumper and a hat feel like a bad decision after approximately 5 minutes inside. Still, I’m glad I finally made it to Kew Gardens, but let the photos speak for themselves.
