Discovering hidden treasures
Yesterday I played tourist in my own city during my lunch break. A colleague had told me about a “secret garden” and since then I had begged her to take me there. So yesterday we went on a little trip to this hidden treasure. It’s a seminary in the middle of Chelsea, and behind the fence there’s a beautiful church, housing for the people using the seminary, and a big garden in the middle with big, old trees, blooming blue and purple hydrangeas, and benches all around to sit and enjoy the peace. It was so quiet in there. No sirens, no other people than me and my colleague, no honking. Magical.
I wore a relaxed outfit, as it was a hot and humid day (32C degrees and 92% humidity, not my kind of weather). The top actually comes with a pair of matching shorts, but I found them a bit too short for the office, so instead I paired it with my A-line denim skirt. Light and airy. For accessories I wore my new Steve Madden sandals (that I’ve also added to the pile “Edward doesn’t like”, haha), my picnic basket look-a-like bag from Zara and jewelry from Pilgrim (similar here) & Jacqie Aiche.
