This weekend I had the pleasure of spending some time in our Nation’s capital for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Hanami is the Japanese tradition of viewing flowers and one that I’ve always wanted to take part in. I’ve even blogged about it before in relation to lingerie! And this trip was just as I had dreamed: the entire circumference of the Tidal Basin was awash in pale pink and white, not unlike a calm icy morning after a winter blizzard – but waaaaay less frigid! The blooms enveloped onlookers, petals framing the famous landmarks while the craggily branches added a Far East flavor to the landscape – I was in heaven!
For a girl whose favorite colors are pink, pink and more pink – well, you can imagine my enthusiasm during this trip. Pink makes its way into so many aspects of my life including what we offer on WonderLust Lingerie and though I try to keep my obsession in check it, somehow manages to seep into pretty much everything I do and touch. I guess you can say that I view the world through rose-colored glasses! Seriously though – I own about three pairs of rose-colored glasses…
After hours of strolling between the trees and getting inspired, I headed over to do some sightseeing, museum strolling and restaurant scouting. Washington D.C. has so many things to do and so much culture to take in! If I had more time, I would’ve loved to have checked out the lingerie scene but alas, I only had two days to get my Hanami fill when NYC started calling me back… along with my cat Sebastian. But if you ever find yourself in this colorful city or anywhere else known for it’s cherry blossoms, I highly recommend checking it out for a heavy dose of spring inspiration. And for now: don’t be surprised if you see a lot more pink styles added to the site!
