Navy Petals

Summer is already better, but the best is autumn. It is mature, reasonable and serious, it glows moderately and not frivolously… It cools down, clears up, makes you reasonable…– Valentin

This past weekend I took advantage of a warm, Autumn day and visited the Chicago Botanic Garden. The scenery and backdrops were astounding! From the ablaze fountain to the vivid landscapes, every moment taken in was a sight for sore eyes. Grey and charcoal were non-existent, mind you  o’ dull colors of winter.

To match the jovial ambience, I chose a navy dress with splashes of floral prints and an orange tribal bracelet to amplify the color schemes. Nonetheless I brought out a POP of color by adding in a yellow bag with chic chain straps; this Rebecca Minkoff bag perfectly fits the theme because the vibrant yellow color along with the tassel details bode well with my summer dress. Throwing on a cashmere knit when the chilly wind breezes in, I was set from AM to PM.

From the flourishing green pastures to the quaint Japanese garden, I’d recommend checking out this remarkable garden if you’re ever in Chicago. The mix-match colors really inspired me to reminisce on my favorite summer color. Yellow jazz, I’ve got you down pat 🙂
