I tell you what. I am LOVING this bright blustery beautiful spring weather [although the wind turns my hair into a stringy tangled mess, c’est la vie] and T and I took full advantage the weekend after last with a visit to the Tidal Basin to see the cherry blossoms. Our “visit” was actually more of a long nightmarish excursion in stop-and-go traffic across town. I guess that’s what we get for venturing out on a gorgeous Saturday amongst tourists galore. Once we finally found a parking spot, T and I eagerly leaped out of the car in our crisp spring outfits ready for our cherry blossom adventure.
We have recently changed our dress code at work to just pure “casual,” meaning I have actually been able to pull out my denim during the week. This has been a completely foreign concept to me these past couple of years, so I feel like I’m going through a reacquaintance phase with my blue jeans. A pair that I have had and loved for years are a light wash pair of Levi’s. They are simple: not too tight around my waist and not too loose in the knees, can be dressed up with cuffs at the bottom and worn with a blouse and heels, or my personal favorite: worn with boots and a snazzy blazer.
I’m pretty sure my standard spring uniform will be comfy jeans paired with a graphic tee and blazer. It’s perfect because you can wear boots with it when it’s a little chilly out, or slap on a pair of leopard flats on a sunnier day! I gravitated toward a more summery look for our cherry blossom adventure because it was so warm out, and nothing screams summer more than white and blue. Teddy even jumped on the blue train with his light blue cotton shirt!
