Cherry Blossom Festival at Brooklyn Botanical Garden

Hello world! This past weekend my friends and I met up at the beautiful Cherry Blossom Festival in Brooklyn. I went last year with my friend Alex and we couldn't wait to see it again! Sadly, I think the long, hard winter kept the tree's from really blooming so there weren't quite as many Cherry Blossoms this year. However, the grounds were still covered with so many amazing trees and flowers as far as the eye could see! I swear I could go to the Gardens everyday and never get bored!

Since everything was of course Sakura themed (cherry blossom in Japanese) there were so many Japanese snacks to try and a whole Japanese Market that sold everything from kimonos to pottery! It was beautiful and I couldn't help but indulge in some sweet sticky rice treats with red bean paste (one of my all time favorites!) This year I also tried onigiri with salmon. It was my first time and it was AWESOME! 

I really wanted to let the Blossoms shine so I kept my outfit pretty simple for the most part with this little white dress from Forever 21. To add a little extra pizazz (because this is me we're talking about here) I added the fishnets and my straw boater hat from H&M. These black tie up heels from Forever 21 are the perfect height and despite wearing them ALL day trekking in and out of Brooklyn, they never hurt my feet! The white sunnies from Urban Outfitters also added a very vintage feel which I appreciated and to finish everything off I added my whicker basket bag from Etsy.

Later that day Jeffy brought me to The Yellow Magnolia Cafe for lunch. We had a FANTASTIC meal between the very interesting mustard greens soup (which apparently the chef whipped up on a whim after accidentally receiving a huge order of mustard greens!) and tarot chips, and then a lovely smoked salmon platter with creme fraiche and pita! YUM! 

The weather couldn't have been more beautiful, it was an absolutely lovely day!

    1. That's so sweet of you! Thank you! Honestly, fishnets are such a great accessory in my opinion! I think some people still find them a bit TOO risque but I can't help it, I'm in love!
