Inspiration: Cherry Blossoms

Have you noticed how often I’m carrying an umbrella in my photos? Too much for my liking. But that’s fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. And when it’s raining too hard, I end up posing indoors.

I skipped the umbrella today. The dark gray rainy days and pink spring cherry blossoms inspired me to mix this outfit together.

pink jacket

Jacket: JC Penney
T-shirt: Old Navy
Necklace: Reconstructed Clothing Co.
Earrings: Claire’s
Purse: Nine West (thrifted)
Jeans: Gap (thrifted)
Boots: Dr Martens


In honor of National Poetry Month, I wrote a Haiku:

Cherry blossoms bloom
Reminds me spring is here now
Hope the rain will stop

About the jacket: I can’t believe it’s not leather. It’s buttery soft and oh-so-pale. I feel really pulled together when I wear it. Coincidentally, the little upcycled necklace I bought last week matches it. The necklace is an old ticket stub glued to wood and lacquered. What I want to know is “a ticket to what?” Admit one cat? My cat never admits anything, so I suppose we’ll never know. Regardless, it’s cute. And it adds cheer to a gloomy day.

    Looks very lovely

    Our blossoms are not yet in bloom in Ontario. Gray is a very popular colour here, but can look a little dreary. You have added just what it needs – soft pink. The necklace is unique and great for cat lovers!!

    I like your poem!

  3. I haiku response?! Love it! Anika, I’ll let you know if I find out what that ticket was used for. Thanks for your kind words.
