As mentioned yesterday, I've taken a litle RnR this week with Mr Styles' Mom being in town...of course my version of RnR is to run around town doing all the things I never get to do...I'm not much of a sit still kind of gal...
On Monday we spent the afternoon walking around the L.A wonder that is the Huntington Gardens. I managed to take, literally, hundreds of photographs. Whilst it sounds utterly corny, there's nothing more inspiring than the colour, texture and vibrancy that is found in nature - and it's even more exciting when you can find it in your own backyard (or at least someone elses backyard that you paid $15 to visit...!)
As I said there are a TON of photographs, and I've made a valiant attempt to narrow them down, and will be sharing them in three parts. I know this isn't strictly a fashion post, and honestly, I'm not strictly a fashion person, but please find inspiration in them...for your designs, your outfits, your art (but please - credit where credit is due - these are not for commercial use)
All the many pictures are after the jump! Enjoy!
The following pictures are of my favourite plant spotted at The Huntington - the colours are just perfect - that subdued yet vibrant pink with the deep purple - beyond amazing. (I think it's some varietal of Kangaroo Paw but my memory has failed to remember the latin name and Google is failing me..so if anyone knows please let me know!)
