‘When Spring gives you blossoms- what do you do? Go and find the prettiest Victorian greenhouse, filled with draping palm leaves and oozing condensation as if you’re planted on a scorching tropical island- of course! Although the little pink petals have me weak at the knees (really? I hadn’t noticed by your Instagram Liv)- it was my trip to Kew Gardens this weekend that had me truly celebrating Spring- and when best to take out some of my favourite new season pieces, than to appreciate one of London’s (not so) secret gems!
With a suit more than appropriate for a day on safari, I mean, the District Line- I paired this favourite co-ord with some subtle seasonal nods from Swarovski and their beautiful new collection. Now, I’m usually a girl that can get a little scared of accessorising but since experimenting with layering more delicate pieces of late- I seem to have become a bit of a convert. With a bold floral print on the agenda, some more subtle pieces worked as the perfect contrast- adding something a little ladylike to a more masculine summer look. To do this I paired these cute bangles together (and mixed and matched rose gold and silver, which I loved)- as well as a gold toned trend-led pendant and a couple of more statement stacking rings, for ultimate ’70s style kudos. The collection also boasts some stunning collar pieces too- if you’re a little braver than me too!
Although I was possibly a little overdressed in a sea of more appropriate jeans and jackets (what you can’t tell is that I did opt for some tights, and felt pretty over the moon that I coordinated with a whole greenhouse)- Joe and I happily mooched around the gardens, learning more about their Grow Wild campaign and stopping for absolutely obligatory swan and flower bed shots- before heading home for lunch and an evening with friends- blooming lovely!
