Jardin Botanique

February 19, 2014 • GenevaStyle

the jardin botanique is my favorite place to hang out in geneva when the weather is nice. i’d noticed those cool palmes & co exhibition posters all over town, and secretly hoped to find a little bit of california right here in switzerland, but alas – the exhibition amounted to little more than a few palm trees inside a greenhouse. not that it made the trip any less fun. it was unseasonally warm that day, and i always love exploring this part of geneva. the jardin botanique is huge and it is divided in two parts, one of which borders the lac léman.

after almost three years, i still get a little frustrated over how little this town has to offer in terms of restaurants, museums and coffee bars – all the things i thought i couldn’t live without. but coming to this park, looking out over the water and taking in the beautifully green surroundings, reminds me of all the things i discovered here – most of which i never thought i’d enjoy as much as i do now.

by the way – i also shared this outfit on myfashionblog.be, the last one of my guest contributions over there. i had so much fun over there for the past two months – thanks emma for inviting me! if you aren’t following myfashionblog yet, you should seriously consider it for daily style inspiration and a glimpse into the life of the powerhouse that is emma gelaude.
