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.

  1. It is amazing how the trees seem to bloom overnight. Hooray for nice weather, finally! Loving the flowy skirt and cute hat :)

  2. Wow so beautiful!! The pink skirt looks gorgeous against the blooming flowers!


  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.

  7. You look stunning!!! I love that skirt, and those cherry blossoms are stunning.

  14. That skirt is so pretty! Love the playful nod to the the blooming trees :)

  15. Spring is my favorite season. I am sure it is because I detest winter so much. Everything gets to suddenly turn green and bloom and smell amazing. I love Cherry Blossom trees. And you always get the best photos in them! Love this skirt so much!

  16. Those trees are gorgeous!! I'm loving that pleated maxi skirt. So pretty on you!


  17. Your pictures and that skirt are so pretty! I love when the wind blows,the blossoms fall aprt, and it looks like snow (without the cold!!!)

  18. Your look definitely looks like it has been inspired by those pretty pink blossoms! Love your skirt and delicate jewelry Lydia!

  19. Great look! Love the soft floaty skirt so much although I would never wear that colour, always think I don't suit pink, but it looks great on you Two Hearts One Roof

  20. Love those dainty necklaces! Your skirt is the prettiest shade of pink!
    Sincerely, Sara

  21. That skirt is a dream, you look amazing!


  22. 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!

  23. I love this look--you coordinate with the cherry blossoms beautifully! I love that skirt! I agree about spring, it can be wishy washy weather-wise, but it's my favorite too.

  24. So gorgeous! Love that skirt!


  25. You look stunning in this outfit with the pretty blossom background. Wished we had cherry blossom trees out in CA but I do enjoy our palm trees.


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  26. In love with your maxi skirt!!!!


  27. This is the absolute perfect outfit to celebrate those gorgeous trees! You look stunning!

  28. 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 :)

  29. Oh boy, that skirt is so stunning and spring blooms are my favourite thing about this season:) xoxo

  30. Such a lovely spot in New Haven. And you accentuate it beautifully!

  31. Gorgeous! You definitely fit in with all the cherry blossoms! I love that skirt! I have a similar one but I've been looking for other options just in case mine gets worn out...haha.
