The barbican conservatory

When this floral leaf dress arrived from closet London, I knew there was only one place that would be perfect to shoot an OOTD!
The conservatory at the Barbican center is a hidden tropical oasis in the heart of the city.
The greenhouse is home to over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees, and plays host to many fashion events and private functions.

Unlike Kew gardens the Barbican conservatory is free to enter, but its only open to the public on a Sunday from 11am-5pm.
So to make sure I got there, as soon as it opened, so to get some photos before it got too busy!
I got myself up bright an early, but its always wise to check their website before you plan to go for possible closures, as its often used for private functions and events.

Dress - Closet London
White pumps Newlook

on your visit you will find lots of other people taking pics, but there are lots of little areas within the conservatory that you can take yourself off to that make perfect little backdrops for your pictures, but try to get there as soon as it opens as it gets quite busy after midday and as its a conservatory its also on the warm side so layers are a must!
once finished there is always lots on at the barbican centre and the architecture of the surrounding buildings are also a great location to take yet more pics

  1. This looks like an amazing place - if I was a local I'd find myself there most Sundays. Love the outfit you choose too - very tropical <3
