Stripes and Monday Bloom

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you are enjoying the weekend!

Cherry Blossom is the most beautiful spring celebration in DC. Cold nasty weather affected the blooming this year but this precious little tree in our backyard didn’t care about snow and surprises us with gorgeous blossom and aroma. As soon as I saw the flowers I realized that I have very old but still nice looking floral blazer. Can you believe that this striped top and blazer are more than 7 years old, I love items that look like new after so many years.


Цветение японской вишни является самым прекрасным временем в Вашингтоне, весь город усажен этими деревьями и в конце Марта он просто сказочно красив!!! В этом году конечно же подводит погода и из за пакостных холодных дождей цветение запаздывает но к своему удивлению я наткнулась на это милое деревце за домом, которому видно плохая погода не помеха. Как только увидела эти нежные цветочки,  я сразу же вспомнила о своем старом блэйзере. Не поверите, но этим вещам более 7 лет ( я их еще с России сюда везла и совершенно о них забыла), обожаю качественные вещи которые сохраняют свой вид спустя долгие годы!!!

    • elena

      Awww thank you Olga, you are so sweet!

  • Don’t you love it when favorite older pieces are still viable? They say we usually wear only 25% of our clothes…I want to do better by incorporating old favorites regularly…especially if they look as nice as yours!

    • elena

      I agree, we forget about these items, but it’s like shopping in your own closet-find clothes that still look awesome and cost nothing:)

  • The white pants are fun, especially as spring comes.

    • elena

      So true, I should get more white items:)

  • I don’t have an outfit post today so I can’t link up…first Monday I haven’t since I started blogging!
    🙁 But you look fabulous! I love the mix of floral and stripes!
