When the cherry trees are in full bloom, the Japanese celebrate Hanami. They picnic under the blossoming branches and stay with friends, gazing at the flowers until dusk. The flowering time is very short, a symbol of transient life.
On this occasion, I was in the Parc de Sceaux, and the 250 cherry trees were in full bloom. Imagine an orchard where you can look in every direction and see nothing but pink petals. It was like a dream…
Unfortunately I can’t cook bento, so I couldn’t enjoy the picnic and just gazed at the Japaneses’s pretty bento boxes with jealousy !
I was wearing a skirt I had been coveting since last summer (it was sold-out until now). It is the american apparel long accordion pleat skirt. It is really gorgeous when it moves ! A beautiful way to adopt accordion pleats. But you have to know it is quite see-through, so I was wearing another skirt underneath.
The leather jacket is from BCBG Max Azria, super smooth and thin, a good winter sales investment. I like that it is very sleek and simple, without pockets or any other detail. It brings out the cut and the texture. But I wouldn’t say no to a cool biker jacket either ! I have been looking for one for so long
A few pics in color, because color is nice too.
