Lookbook: Cherry Blossoms

Our street is blooming with so many cherry blossom trees. It is so beautiful looking down our street.

I asked J to capture the cherry blossoms in the background for this lookbook. After he took this picture he says "look how little you look!" because he usually takes the pictures closer up. So then I wonder if you all think I'm bigger than I really am since I never stand next to anything? hehe.

So here I am in the view you are used to seeing...

What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Quicksilver
Leggings: Forever 21
Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: L.A.M.B

I was lazy and kinda just copied my look from the last time I wore these shoes. But really, you can't go wrong with a dress, a belt and leggings. I just realized I'm wearing two purple outfits in this week's lookbook posts. I guess I was right when I told you I'm really loving purple this season!

After seeing so many fashion bloggers rock their shiny leggings, I had to join in and get some for myself. And just like many of them, I have been converted! I love shiny leggings! I wanted to get the American Apparel Disco Pant, but was afraid I would hate the look and would rather not invest $90 in them. Instead, I ordered two pairs from Forever 21 for $9 each. WAY better! (Unfortanetly, I don't see them on the website anymore so can't show you which ones I bought) If you haven't gotten into shiny leggings yet, I say try them out! You might love them too.

p.s. smile! It's SPRING!

  25. Dila - the shoes are actually pretty comfy for me. I wore them all day long, but I am very very used to wearing high heels so it might just be me.

    kelly - no, we haven't! We were planning a trip to Japan this year, but it got postponed, so hopefully either later this year or next year we can go.
