Secret Garden

 I'm having one of those days where I feel like being incognito. Torrential rain decided to interrupt our two blissful days of sunshine here in NY last night. I got caught in it walking home from the subway yesterday wearing a chiffon blouse and sandals - needless to say I looked crazy. So today I'm laying low, hanging around my hood and running errands.  
I find a lot of exotic looking plants in my garden. The light plum looks so pretty against the teal metal.
 I'm wearing a turban made of fabric I found around my house, flea market shades, Asos crop topAmerican Apparel corduroy skirt and Zara sandals
