blouse like petals

Yesterday Adolfo and I traipsed out to Blankenese, a beautiful hillside neighborhood that leads down to the Elbe river. There are few roads where cars can go when you get into the more residential part of this neighborhood, so we enjoyed a stroll through the tiny walkways between the beautiful houses and gardens until we reached the waterfront. After, we headed to another botanic garden, which I much preferred to Planten un Blomen. I had Adolfo shoot a few outfit photos throughout the day.

This outfit was comfy, and perfect for the weather which goes from hot to cool, from windy to still, from rainy to sunny. Hamburg has some of the most temperamental weather of anywhere I have ever been. My only regret with this outfit is that I wore tights under the boots, which made it impossible for me to feel the sand under my feet. Note to self: don't wear tights on impromptu walks on the beach.
