During my last Sunday at school, me and my friend went out for the day. I brought along my camera because while it was a little rainy, the overcast sky was perfect for pictures.
This is about ten minutes from my school, which I feel quite lucky about. It’s on Cochituate Lake, and the moody sky reflected beautifully on the water. As spring showers are coming down, I’ve been noticing a new shade of gray that I love: Periwinkle. This is sort of a violet/blue shade that’s toned down to be grayish.
The water was so peaceful, and all around the lake were tall and gorgeous trees.
We also went into my all-time favorite store, Anthropologie. Fun Fact: The Anthropologie in the Natick Mall is one of the only ones (or maybe the only one) that has a corner window display. This beautiful painted wall was behind the window and I thought it matched that gorgeous color that I was focusing on. I’m always amazed by their displays, and I love that for spring they are using a painting theme. It reminds me of rainy days, which tend to be my favorite kinds. Walking through the store, I was happy, but it was bittersweet that I might not be going back there in awhile.
They had beautiful plants out and so many dresses. It was hard to contain myself (as always). I actually bought a mother’s day gift and then poked around at their eccentric furniture. The store always inspires me, even if I don’t buy anything (and most of the time, I don’t). It’s soothing to be around such beautiful and happy things.
It was quite a nostalgic day for me, but a good one. It was the first Sunday in a long time that i tried to stay out all day and make the most of it. Now that almost all of my work is done for school, I can revel in my last days here. Hopefully I’ll have time to take some more pictures since everything seems to be blooming right now.
