Natural Beauty

Hi girls, hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing long Labor Day weekend! I had such a beautiful weekend! Our weather here in NYC was just breezes, incredible, crystal clear blue skies, and beautiful sunshine. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

I tried to spend as much time as I could enjoying the waning days of summer and the great outdoors. Yes, that's right, even though I teeter around in stilettos and pretty dresses constantly, I love the outdoors and have an amazing appreciation and respect for nature.

One of my favorite activities is to head to a local park or garden and capture amazing photos of the beautiful flowers, trees and plants that decorate the landscape. On Sunday, the boyfriend and I headed out to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and had ourselves a great ol' time. I thought I'd deviate from my usual fashion ramblings and share a few photos from that day. Check them out below! After all, NYC isn't just a concrete jungle!

I was so taken by the contrast of the brilliant blue sky against the vibrant green of the treetops...

Here's a random shot of a really cool water plant. Not really sure what it is, actually, but I was so taken with the interesting shapes. The geometry in nature is spectacular!

Below is a close-up of a beautiful pink flower...

This canopy of trees made me feel as though I was walking through a forest. It kept me cool and shaded from the super bright sunlight, as well.

Here's a nice shot of the beautiful little pond and Japanese garden...

The day ended with a dramatic sunset. I literally dove for my camera to capture the beauty of the fiery orange and cool violet hues that streaked the sky outside my window...

Well, I hope you all enjoyed my little photo collection. It's nice to take a breather from the one-track mind of fashion every now and then, LOL. For any folks planning a trip to NYC, if your weather is nice, I HIGHLY recommend a day trip out to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in between your shopping and dining excursions!

I'll be back soon to discuss more great fall fashion!!!

    I don't know the name of it, but I love that tree with the leaves/branches hanging down.
    I might have to venture out to Brooklyn on my next visit or maybe I should wait until the spring, I bet it is gorgeous that time of year.
