Weekend Wonders

Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend!  It went too fast, didn’t it?!  I got a chance to see the most amazing exhibit yesterday at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

The Butterflies and Blooms exhibition is going on now through Labor Day and it is spectacular!  Some 500 butterfly species from around the world are flitting about inside a white tent, where a man-made habitat has been created for them.

Something very cool about the fact that these colorful creatures represent so many parts of the globe—North America, South America, Asia, and Africa—all peacefully co-existing in this diminutive magic garden.

Feasting on mangos…

If you haven’t been and you’re in the area, this exhibition is definitely worth checking out. It will not disappoint.

As always, thanks for stopping by.  Make it a great day!

    • Thanks so much! It was even more breathtaking in person! It was quite a scene with so much color flying all around and me trying to snap photos—it got a bit dizzying and I’m sure pretty comical to watch :)

  1. Marie, you look gorgeous! I love BCBGMaxAzria! And of course, Chanel!
    I’ve never seen a feeding dish for butterflies…what are they feeding on?
    I think I’ll use their color combination for some outfit ideas! So pretty!

    • You’re very kind! The butterflies are feeding on mangos, which I have never seen either—really something to see in person! And you are so right about their color combinations—a great source of
      outfit inspiration :)
