Falling for Neutrals at Garden of the Gods

Falling for Neutrals at Garden of the Gods

Against a stunning backdrop at Colorado’s Garden of the Gods, we launched our fall collection, Nordic Neutrals. 

How Simplicity, Versatility, and Beauty Come Together


Set against the breathtaking backdrop of lush rolling greenery, red rock mountains, and an endless cerulean sky, our Nordic Neutrals collection made its debut at the Garden of the Gods Resort & Club. Located in the heart of Colorado Springs, the Garden of the Gods stands as one of the world's most stunning natural wonders, offering an abundance of activities within its landscape. Here, we embarked on an unforgettable photoshoot, showcasing our Nordic Neutrals collection amid the park's astounding vistas. This setting perfectly encapsulates what makes these pieces truly exceptional – their ability to seamlessly transition from Resort to Sport, from home to travel, from chilly to warm climates, and everything in between.



The Nordic Neutrals collection features many of our timeless classics, like the Classic Button Up, Wrap Dress, and Pocket Tee, as well as new items, like the Long Sleeved and Sleeveless Keyhole tops and the Reversible Quilted Vest. 

Now available in updated fall colors, these pieces are designed to transcend seasons, on and off the golf course. Soft, understated tones like periwinkle, cream, dress blues, and even a crane print make these pieces easy to layer and gorgeous on their own. 

These simple colors and styles are met with versatility, with features like water-resistance, stretch, and moisture-wicking that support any activity from running errands around town to hitting the course after work. And when you want to head to the club for dinner or a cocktail, you can skip the outfit change.



What is most striking about places like Garden of the Gods is how much they offer to us with a single look. All one needs to do is take in the view and you’re filled with a sense of serenity, wonder, and adventure. That effect – of capturing so much in a single look, is exactly what A. PUTNAM strives for with our simple but versatile styles. 

Our mission, minimalism maximized, allows women to make bold statements with elegant but comfortable looks that aren’t overcomplicated, flashy, or bright. Like our natural landscapes, our wardrobes can do so much with neutral tones and classic looks – hence why the Garden of the Gods was such a perfect fit for the launch of our Nordic Neutrals collection.

Garden of the Gods Co-Owners, Judy Mackey and Brenda Smith have shared publicly that upon taking ownership of the property, it was important to them that they maintain the vision of the Garden of the Gods as a place where both nature and wellness are prioritized, and where visitors can feel and experience the unique energy that comes from nature, even when they are inside the resort’s buildings.

The Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center itself is special and unique because it represents so much more than just a visitor and nature center. It is about the history of the land, building community, valuing wellness, and connecting with nature. 

Judy and Brenda call Garden of the Gods the “third place” for visitors – the first place people are is home, the second is work – and the third is a place where people feel they belong, are cared for, and want to spend quality time.
