I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Calvin Klein. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

The NYBG is one of my favorite places in the city and it’s not just because I’m obsessed with flowers (I obviously am) but because I love to be able to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, tune out the noise and just relax and breathe fresh air.

This weekend my fiance and I went on a casual date and the cherry blossoms and magnolia trees were in full bloom. We spent quite a while just sitting under a magnolia tree enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful view (tip: a picnic basket would have been awesome!).  We took tons of pictures on the gorgeous flowery backdrops lent to us by nature and on a bed of white and yellow daffodils.

A little while later we walked the trail that led us to a small waterfall and even stumbled upon an outdoor New York state wine tasting they happen to have on site. I picked up bottles of pear, apple and raspberry hard cider.

If visiting the NYBG, I highly recommend that you have fun with your outfits when you go for your pictures but be sure to dress comfortably. There is a lot of walking to be done and the last thing you’d want is for your clothes to not allow you to enjoy yourself.

I wore a a flowey top, paired with a fun hat to protect me from the sun (and be extra cute!) and wore my new everyday Calvin Klein tote I picked up at Macy’s last week. Of course I sprayed on a few splashes of euphoria Calvin Klein because the garden flowers are not the only ones smelling pretty!

Tip: Don’t forget that from now through Mother’s Day, anyone who purchases a large spray from the euphoria Calvin Klein fragrance collection at Macy’s or Dillard’s will receive a complimentary live orchid.  

Antonio was also dressed very comfy cool.

The hubby is a big fan of nature and so am I,  so this was truly a joyful and perfect date.

What’s your idea of a perfect date?

    These pictures! :) Absolutely gorgeous! It looks like such a beautiful place and would be great for photoshoots!!!

  • Dawn

    You two make such a cute couple, and I LOVE your outfit. You’re too adorable! It’s fun to go out, but honestly, my idea of the perfect date is just chillaxing on the couch and watching bad TV with the hubby.

    This sounds like a perfect date. The cherry blossoms are stunning. In Japanese culture, they are the flowers or romance and love so they’re the ideal flowers for a date.

    • I didn’t know this but I can see why, cherry blossoms are beautiful.

  • Oh wow you both look so beautiful and comfortably dressed, loving the flowers. I am a huge calvin klein fan I do have the euphoria perfume have had it for the last couple of years and loving that tote bag.

    Such a beautiful place to go for a date! Like you I’m obsessed with flowers and have been looking for somewhere like this in my area to take some snaps with my son. The photo of you both in the grass amongst the daffodils is just beautiful, definitely one for a frame! :)

  • Such gorgeous photos and your post brightened my day! I am glad you have found such a beautiful place to date and thank you for sharing today!

    What an amazing place to go on a date at. I love cherry blossoms but we don’t have
    them here in Washington state. I would love to be able to spend an afternoon at a park like this!

  • Looks like a fun day out and such a pretty place to take photos! I love cherry blossoms and was fortunate to live in Washington DC for a bit and experience the cherry blossom festival, it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen! So happy to see summer is finally on its way :-)

  • I would love visiting there because I love flowers as well. Your photos are so beautiful and what a cute couple you two are. I can’t wait to try euphoria Calvin Klein. I’ve always been a Calvin Klein fan.

  • You are so lucky to have blooming flowers around you. We have a few trees with blossoms, but nothing like daffodils and other splashes of color. I love nature too – and my sweetie and I enjoy having picnics and outings in the outdoors – especially when we’re close to water.

    That shirt is lovely and that bag is super cute. Looks like a beautiful place to go on a day date. The flowers are beautiful and your guy looks calm and comfortable. Sounds like a wonderful date!

    Wow how beautiful! I love how bright and vibrant those flowers are! Definitely very pretty and something I would love to visit. I wish my area was as pretty as yours! :) Those yellow daffodils are just so pretty, I love yellow flowers, they remind me of sunshine and happines!
