Hello and welcome!
The outfit photos I had planned for today didn't turn out too good (they were taken inside on a cloudy day and the lighting was bad.) I didn't want to completely waste the pictures, so I am still sharing one and then last week I decided to look through some vacation pictures and I tought it would be fun to share some of the scenery and floral pictures I took at Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina.
My daily outfit "formula" usually consists of blue jeans and some sort of a top or cardigan, but when I recently re-organized my closet I decided to switch it up a bit and got out these gray AG Jeggings. I've talked about these before last fall in this post, where I mentioned these are from the children's department in a size 16, purchased for my dughter but they didn't fit her. While I don't normally wear jeggings (or leggings unless I'm exercizing) I decided to keep them for myself. They really are perfect for wearing around the house, because they are so comfortable!

On this day I paired them with a simple sweatshirt from Target from the 'A New Day' line, but it was purchased at least a year ago and this specific color is no longer available. My daughter also cleaned out her closet and re-organized her room a couple of weeks ago, and these cute slippers no longer fit her. Well, lucky me they are my size!!
I know, not really a slipper an over 40 year old women should be seen in, but it's no secrect that I like all things cute, so I am keeping them for myself :) These are by Kensie, and also no longer available, but a few other styles are available on Amazon.
This past week I spent some time looking at last year's vacation pictures which was in South Carolina. One place we visited again was Brookgreen Gardens which is located just south of Myrtle Beach. We've been to this garden twice and it was so beautiful both times (in 2017 we visited in July and last year we visited in June). I'd love to visit April sometimes as I think that's when the Azaleas will be in bloom, but it's not a month we can usually travel that far.
I thought it would be nice to share some of my landscape and floral pictures I took with my Canon DSLR camera (mine is the older T5 model), so I picked my favorites from both visits to this garden. I have more to share from Brookgreen Gardens, but today I am only sharing the close ups, as the post would get too long otherwise.
I did not notice all the details on this butterfly until I uploaded it to my blog and then decided to crop the pictures. Not sure I've ever seen a butterfly's body looking like this....
Here is the close up...
All the butterfly pictures were taken in the butterfly pavillion which is part of Brookgreen Gardens, but it does cost a small extra fee to go inside.
The florals below were taken throughout the gardens. Some are from our visit last June, while some are from our visit in July 2017.
I'm sure nobody is currently planning a vacation, but if you are ever in the Myrtle Beach area then be sure to visit Brookgreen Gardens. The admission tickets are good for 7 days, so you can visit more than once.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog today! Hope you're having a good weekend! We're finishing painting my son's room today. He wanted it to be white, so I was able to order everything online I needed at Lowes for store pickup.
