Who doesn't love a cherry tree in full bloom? Philadelphia is already a lovely place (really!) but these flowers add a little extra comeliness. What kind of fashion blogger would I be if I didn't pose amongst their beauty?
This dress has been a constant in my life. It's the first vintage piece I've ever owned and I got into the most intense bidding war for it on eBay when I was seventeen. It's made quite a few appearances on my blog (most notably here, in memoriam of my long hair) and will forever be a favorite of mine. I'll wear it until it falls apart. To add a little bit of edginess to this very feminine floral dress, I decided to wear my Deandri harness instead of a necklace. I need to start wearing it more often because I'm kinda diggin' it.
I gotta say it though, these trees are killing me when it comes to allergies and whatnot. How can something so beautiful be so... vile? Gorgeous from a distance yet filling the air with deadly poison. Alright so I'm being a little dramatic, but I'm glad they only bloom for a few weeks. It's sad to see them go but it's nice to have a little relief. And after all, their brevity is what makes them so alluring. If they stuck around, they'd lose their mystique.
Hope you're all able to enjoy the cherry blossoms before they go away! (Allergies or not...)
