Sakura-Matsuri

I will be at Sakura Matsuri tomorrow in Washington DC. This is the shirt I’ll be wearing. I also always have a glowing aura of light behind my head, so that will be a giveaway.

If you see me, feel free to say hi.

Hey, who filled this moat with Strawberry Nesquik? We hope they brought enough straws for everyone…

A Japanese photographer who goes by the name WizardTools on Twitter captured this awesome image of cherry blossom petals blanketing the surface of the moat surrounding Hirosaki Castle, located in Hirosaki, Aomori, Japan.

“The surrounding Hirosaki Park around the castle grounds is one of Japan’s most famous cherry blossom spots. Over a million people enjoy the park’s 2600 trees (which were originally planted around in grounds in 1903) during the sakura matsuri (cherry blossom festival) when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, usually during the Japanese Golden Week holidays in the end of April and beginning of May.”

Wore my new BUNNY AND BLACK shirt & pants to the Sakura Matsuri Festival in Washington, DC yesterday!  It was an amazing time, despite the crowds.  On our way home we stopped by the Smithsonian garden and got pictures by the magnolia trees.  This look was so comfortable TBH, both the pants and the shirt were light and breathable.  Totally recommend their shop for anyone looking to extend their pastel, fairykei or popkei wardrobe with expertly hand-crafted pieces!
