Sakura

I just read the Wikipedia article on Cherry Blossoms, hence the title of this post (it's the Japanese translation). But my research has led me to believe that this is probably a Kanzan tree, not a Cherry Blossom. Sorry to mislead you with the title. Also, sorry to bore you with all this tree-talk.

Sunglasses - Target; Top - Gap; Belt, skirt - thrifted; Sandals - Nine West

Yes, I wore the same shirt two days in a row. You are entitled to think I am gross for doing so; but I am entitled to disagree with you. And maybe even wear it again tomorrow.

P.S. It's 84° in Asheville right now. Wheee! How's the weather where you are?

eesh, it got to 86* here the other day. GROSS, and I'm so not ready for it!

I think your outfit looks super awesome, and I would wear that top every single day if it were mine.

Apparently we are at a just peachy 3 degrees. ¬_¬ England isn't aware that it's meant to be Spring and decided to throw a bit of snow around again for good measure. Not cool.
And yours is the second blog I've read today that shows the owner wearing sandals. I'm so jealous, it hurts a little!

This is why spring is such a great time of year. Nature's colors are unbelievable!

And I'm digging the skirt!

I like this top. I like your trousers in the last post too with the same shirt and I don't think you're gross for wearing the same shirt twice in a row.

And yes, it took a long time to get my hair red. It took four hours at the salon, yikes!

It's wet and gross here. Ugh! Your outfit is very pretty, though. I really really really love your new hair. It suits your face perfectly! Also, we have cherry blossom trees here and although the tree you're standing under is very lovely I don't think it's a cherry blossom tree.

Love your outfit - very spring! It was about 75 today - totally loving it after a loooong winter.

Jenn said...

It hit 91 here today, good grief! I know the Carolinas are steamy, but in early April?! Crazy...

Our trees are in full bloom here, too. Does Asheville have lots of Wisteria? Columbia is covered in it, it's so beautiful.

I love that skirt, by the way! What a fun color!

Robyn said...

a. I wear the same clothes back to back all the time.

b. I was once a japanese girl in a school play and had to sing a song called "sakura" and carry a cherry blossom. I had no idea why.

amanda said...

i love this top! and i love that you took the pictures under that tree. it's so pretty. and it's only gross when you wear your underpants two days in a row. everything else is totally acceptable :)

Liz said...

Oh we all repeat clothes, sometimes I just don't blog about so I don't expose my secret, you're brave :)
I love the tree, it is so springy and happy!

LoveCharlesVintage said...

That top is so cute! i love how simple and cute this outfit is.

♥Lola said...

Love your blog, just found it through selective potential and have added you straight to my google reader :) Love this tree, I'm slightly obsessed with cherry blossoms!

Teresa said...

You could have fooled me! I suppose upon closer look, they look more like pink carnations! What a lovely tree and cute outfit!

It's was 83degrees here.. but not really humid.. but still hot... our summer is gonna be killer.. I'm kinda excited. :) but I'm thankful for A/C.. and tradewinds.

I love this top with the skirt (a little better than with the pants from yesterday) :)

I wish I could be in Japan when all the Cherry Blossom trees are in bloom! Must be so beautiful.

xx Love & Aloha

I love these pictures! The pink blossoms with the red skirt is such a cool contrast!

shybiker said...

Your top has beautiful colors and echoes the nature surrounding you.

In New York, we haven't hit 70 yet but are approaching it.

Christina said...

The weather must be warm where you are! I could never dress like that in San Francisco in April. Your red skirt is great!

I can't wait to start seeing gorgeous pink trees everywhere in Michigan. It's usually not until May here! Love these photos!
