Cherry Blossom

One of my favorite things is seeing the flowers beginning to bloom in the spring. Just last week a little tree on my block burst into bloom with tiny pink flowers, and I spotted more pink-floral trees in Central Park, by the reservoir (which you may have seen on my instagram). Pale pink florals have even been making their way into my outfits!

Lace-up shoes are one of the top trends for spring. While I've got my eye out for the perfect lace-up sandal, I decided to pull these flats out of the closet. These were one of my first purchases from Zappos when I first discovered the site back in high school. I love the embroidered dragon motif and the lace-up detail. They are slightly edgy and so unique with a playful vibe that totally fits my style. I haven't worn these in quite awhile, so it was fun to bring them out since they are back on trend, and pair them with some newer pieces. This silky cherry blossom floral tee was the perfect piece to match with the shoes' colors and even continue the Asian-inspired vibe. It is fun to mix something new with an older piece to update the look and bring a little fresh excitement to an old well-loved piece. 

I got this tee a little bit oversized, so I like to wear it tied up on the side or tucked a little. The neutral tones make it easy to wear, but the blush pink shade and flecks of green add a bit of color too. I like the way the floral earrings and pink sunglasses bring out the color in the top. Even though the shoes are over eight seasons old the look is fresh and fun for spring, mixing casual neutrals and fun, colorful accents.
