My favorite season in D.C. is cherry blossom season. It makes this city feel so magical, as there are pink and white flowers everywhere you look. I was so sad last year that I missed this special time of year while doing my college program, but that just made me so excited to see it this year. The wait was worth it, because everything fell into place this weekend– my mom was in town for a visit, the kite blossom festival was happening on Saturday (without us even knowing it), and the weather was absolutely perfect. Everything about yesterday made me fall just a little bit more in love with this beautiful place. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day:
I’m also so excited for the second installment of my spring essentials with another classic piece, the denim jacket. I love denim jackets and can almost always be found in the spring and fall to be wearing one. I love the look of denim jackets over summer dresses, as I think it can make a nicer dress look a bit more casual. I also love how you can make a denim jacket fit your personality– you can embroider the back, wear a plain classic jacket, or find one in colored denim, like my spring pink jacket.
I bought my classic denim jacket from Ann Taylor Loft– it is $89.50 but is currently on sale for 50% off. My pink denim jacket is also from Ann Taylor Loft, but is currently out of stock. Land’s End has a great alternative available though for $53.97 right now.
Here’s how I’ve styled denim jackets:
Happy spring and I hope you enjoy seeing many more colorful outfits in the future!
