Cherry Blossoms in Spring

Cherry Blossoms in Spring

While living in the Pacific Northwest has its downfalls (like, the fact that it's cold and wet a LOT), one of them is certainly not the transition into spring. At a moments notice, everything is blossoming and blooming all at once, and then in a flash it's gone with the next rain storm.

As soon as I start to see the cherry trees blooming, it's game on. There's such a small window of opportunity to photograph them before the rain knocks all those pretty little petals down! Last weekend was that opportune moment. Adam and I had a wedding to attend on Saturday evening and we completely lucked out with some sunshine in the afternoon.

I adore this dress from the LOFT. It's got these bell sleeves that slightly remind me of middle school (when we used to call them butterfly sleeves) and a colorful pattern that plays out against a black background. It's perfect palette for the transition into spring. I could equally see wearing it in the fall with a leather jacket.

Normally, my go-to accent color would be red, but this time I'm trying something a little different with this adorable little lemon crossbody by Foley + Corinna. It compliments the dress so well, and the size is perfect for an evening out (or a day of exploring, for that matter)! It's got space for all the necessities and a crossbody means I can go hands-free. The black hardware provides the necessary amount of edginess for me, too!

I couldn't wait to wear these sandals by Jeffrey Campbell. They've quietly sat in a box since I ordered them a month ago, waiting for the right outfit. The heel on them isn't overly high, making them pretty comfortable to wear for an entire evenings worth of events. I love the strappy details and fringe around the ankles! They also come in black and red, and I can't help but entertain the idea of investing in another color...

No outfit would be complete without blooms! The Bouqs Co. is always providing me with the brightest, most beautiful blooms out there! This one is called Loyal, and it's packed with Gerbera Daisies. While simple in composition, it boasts a vibrant color palette that screams "Hello, Spring!".

Hope you all have a lovely Friday! Special thanks to Foley + Corinna and The Bouqs Co. for properly accessorizing this outfit!
