It's almost the end of summer. I've never liked that period as a kid because that meant going back to school which stressed me out. But I grew up appreciating it a whole lot more, especially living in New York because it's the period when the heat becomes bearable. It's warm but not too hot, so you can still wear cute dresses without ruining them in sweat!
Talking about cute dresses, I have a good friend who is also a great designer, Danica Zheng, and when I saw on her brand's Instagram, Pamplemousse NY, the new version of her "Mimosa" dress. I just couldn't resist the cheetah print and asked her if I could try it on asap to see if it fit me. There's also a black version of it, but I found the white one to be slightly more original than the classic cheetah look. I also thought the color looked good with my hair ;)! Anyway, I fell in love with that cute dress and brought it home and felt inspired for a quick shoot in a botanical garden to celebrate the end of summer with fun.
I accessorized it with the cutest bag from Maison Héroine! I love it because it's big enough to hold my kindle which is the best to keep busy during the wait at the airport, castings and when I enjoy a coffee alone. To protect my head from getting too much sun I wore an old hat found in my closet and my classic Dita Eyewear sunnies obviously! I also have these boots from Isabel Marant which I always wanted the color to be a bit darker until today because I thought all the colors were working well together.
I loved walking around this botanical garden as we were lucky it wasn't crowded, so we could enjoy the beauty of the flowers and the sound of water in a calm atmosphere in between shots.
And when it got a bit chilly I wore this super large cardigan from & Other Stories that I got a few years ago. I love the long sleeves and how heavy it is because it makes everything more cosy and chill.
shop the look
The shoes aren't available in exactly the same model because it was a past collection and the cardigan isn't available anymore so I give you a different option
