*i’m sorry that i didn’t photograph the gucci windows on sunday morning, when we were on the way back to the grand hotel et de milan from breakfast at sant ambroeus.  and, on the way to linate airport…

**the herbarium prints remind me of the chrysanthemum wallpaper in the guest bedroom of my grandparent’s home.  could herbarium prints be considered granny chic?
