Pink blossoms

These pink flowering trees are, without question, my favorite part of spring.
When I was little, I dreampt of wearing a crown of the blossoms on my head on my wedding day.
When I someday have a home of my own, one of these trees must be in the yard.
They are so bright, and so pretty, every time I see them, I smile. The spring is full of lots of new growth, new flowers and colors, but in my mind, these trees completely steal the show.

aww those shorts look so cute on you! I tried them on and they looked bad on me :-/

There are thousands of these blossom trees here in SF! They're so pretty but our backyard neighbors have one too and it's shedding ALL the petals right into our backyard. It looks like someone threw up thousands of flowers, it's quite annoying but pretty!

What a beautiful springtime outfit! The colors and paisley prints go together so well (and the cherry blossoms make such a nice backdrop). And your starfish ring is super cute!

Photoshoot adventure? That looks like a new location!... or it's just actually spring now and things are growing. The scallops finally make their debut! I love that everything's mostly neutral, and with the gold jewelry and those nails I feel like you should be having cocktails at a beach club at sunset :)

Amber Blue Bird said...

hey we have similar trees in our backgrounds today :) Great minds think alike

cristina petre said...

you look lovely, that top is so beautiful! great photos, too, the background is amazing!

Brittney said...

I'm the same way--we took a family vacay to WA DC about 15 years ago (I was in high school), and all I can remember is the blossoming cherry trees. Are those dogwoods in your photo? So super pretty. Same goes for your shirt and those fabdabulous shoes. Love!!

Your pictures always look so pretty, but these are beyond gorgeous. I love the mix of soft and bright colors, and the nature around you really compliments your look. So lovely!

Those flowers are so beautiful and would be great in a wedding bouquet. I'm happy to see your wearing the new scallop shorts. The pieces you picked go perfectly with them especially the sequin and leather clutch.
