Beauties and bounties...

Last Sunday we paid a visit to the Chicago Botanical Garden with our friends. I was amazed at the  
beauties and bounties of mother nature, so well preserved and well-maintained by her human children!
The weather was perfect- not too hot, neither too cold- bright and sunny and a little breezy.
This light denim jacket and the cotton Ikat dress were perfect for the outing. We walked a lot and hence the flats were a good choice.
I was super excited because for the first time ever I got a new photographer with a brand new DSLR.
My dear friend's husband was sweet enough to click a few shots of me for my blog.

Today I'm linking up with  Two Thirty-Five Designs  for her Casual Friday link-up.

                                                           flats- Express    bag-H&M (gift from a dear friend)    bracelet- gift from a dear friend
