Wooster Square blooms

Spring can be a difficult season to deal with in New England. It's hot, then it's cold; it's windy, then raining, and this is all in the same day. But it's still my favorite season, and for one reason: Cherry Blossom Trees.

I can't explain how magical it is to see them burst into bloom. One day the barren trees just explode into a thousand beautiful flowers, and you remember that all winter, these were there, just waiting. It's the reward, and the promise. Life starts anew. It's hard to describe just how happy these trees make me, but I know I'm not alone, they have entire festivals dedicated to them after all.

For my first photos with the blossoms this year, I wanted an outfit that would speak to their beauty, and the blush colored chiffon maxi skirt seemed like the perfect choice.

  3. You summed up cherry blossom season beautifully, I wish it lasted longer. I love how your skirt matches the blossom.

  4. Cherry blossom season is one of my absolute favourite things about Vancouver - we didn't have them where I grew up and the first season that I experienced them was magical. Sadly, I missed most of the Vancouver cherry blossom season this year while I was in Paris (where they bloomed just after I left.) So I'll be living vicariously through your bloom photos this year. I love that your outfit subtly coordinates with the blossoms. And that pink maxi is just too lovely!

  5. I love the tree blossoms too ! Close to where I live there are huge yellow blossom trees that just bring me hope and gratitude every time they flower…
    These pictures are marvellous Lydia, I saw the cherry blossom trees years ago in DC and fell in love with them…

  6. Cherry blossoms are pretty awesome! But Fall is still my favorite season, haha. Maybe it's because I was born in Fall and you in Spring ;)
    This is such a perfect look to go with the trees.

  24. That skirt is the perfect ode to cherry blossom trees! We don't have many cherry trees around here, but I feel the same way when the apple trees start to bloom!

  31. I like the pink and grey together, that is such a cute pleated maxi skirt! :)

    Lovely outfit for admiring the first blooms of Spring in too! :) It's nice to be able to enjoy them - we don't have many here in Brisbane, but we have our own native version of spring blooms with jacaranda trees. they are beautiful, but I've never seen one nearby to take photos with, it's always when I'm out travelling somewhere. I admire them all the same :)
