US Botanic Gardens | The Pursuit of Style

In the winter I’m completely guilty of going into hibernation mode. I’m embarrassed to admit exactly how much time has been spent in yoga pants and an oversized sweater. With the Polar Vortex, this winter has made me even more of a recluse. Why go outside when I could be warm and perfectly content snuggled up readingĀ The Goldfinch? (P.S tore through it in 3 days–so good!)

As great as it’s been checking things off my reading list, there’s only so long you can stay cooped up before going stir crazy. Craving some fresh air and a respite from gray skies, we ended up at the Botanic Gardens. If you’re in DC and have been feeling at all similarly, it’s a must visit.

In my humble opinion, the glass conservatory is one of the most beautiful buildings in DC, and with the citrus trees ripe with fruit in the garden court and the palm fronds reaching skyward in the jungle room, you’ll easily be transported to a balmier climate.

  2. Hi Lindsay!

    I have been to the Botanica in DC. LOVED IT! We happened to go on a a very rainy day and got soaked getting there! I could have stayed the entire day with all the plants, flowers and definitely the architecture. The building itself is lovely! Thanks for the post reminding me of a lovely soaking day!
