OOTD: Butterflies in my hair, flowers, and treehouse adventures

A few weeks ago, I went to visit family in Philadelphia. While we were there, we spent an afternoon at Longwood Gardens.

Most of the outdoor flowers hadn’t bloomed yet, but it was still lovely, and we saw lots of beautiful flowers and plants inside the Conservatory, which is like a giant greenhouse.
