Cherry Blossoms In Bloom








Outfit Details:
Topshop skirt and cropped striped tee with flower trim (I could only find the mint one online)
Cynthia Vincent heels (old)
Karen Walker "Anytime" cat-eye sunglasses
Lancaster Paris bag (c/o)
MAC Russian Red Lipstick

My little sister, Amanda, and Samara were recently in town for Samara's birthday - and though the weather seemed steadfast in its desire to quite literally rain on our parade (well, not parade, but birthday festivities are close enough), we managed to have a couple of clear days. On one of those such days, we headed out to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. After such a harsh winter, the cherry blossoms were something of miracle; barely anything else in the gardens had yet bloomed, making them stand out even more in all their blushing pink, ethereal glory. It's such a shame that they leave almost as soon as they arrive, given their stunning beauty. But I suppose they would be much less appreciated if they weren't so transient - and my, doesn't that apply to most things in life?
