The other day, I was digging through my closet when I came across this lovely sheer black dress with a blue floral overlay. I completely forgot the existence of this dress. You see, I was digging through my closet in hopes of finding my poofy cherry printed dress which I was planning to wear to a nice outdoor occasion such as a picnic. Before I found my cherry dress, I found this one neatly folded on top of it. At first, when I held up the dress, it honestly looked like a nightie with it's black lace trimming and sheer fabric. 

Last week, my mom surprised my sister and me with a trip to a local botanical garden! I've been begging for months to go to the Huntington because of my love for the beauty of nature. One day, I found a nearby botanical gardens which was much closer to where I lived and much cheaper in comparison to the Huntington's ticket prices. The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is absolutely one of the most loveliest places I have ever been! We went somewhat late in the day so we were all sweltering in the hot California summer heat. Here's some words of advice for you if you decide to visit a botanical garden: don't go at 2PM in the afternoon like I did or you would end up being a roasted pig. That was the only con I have encountered. Besides getting to see beautiful plants, there were also peacocks roaming around freely throughout the park. I have to admit the rose garden was my favorite section! Everything there was just so lovely. It looked like the scene of the perfect garden wedding or fairy tale setting. There were also some old buildings but unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to take a look inside. Touring hours were in the morning if I remember correctly. Overall, this is a lovely place to loose yourself in. I can't wait to visit once again!
