WIW 3/21 bussing the city

So today I took a bus to the University of Washington to check out the Japanese cherry trees that were blossoming. They peaked last weekend, but I was on call. We've gotten a lot a rain since then and it was windy today, so I was afraid they'd be decimated. They looked pretty good to me.
I then took the bus back west across the city to Ballard to go to a record store. The university district had no record stores, further proof that the young uns aren't buying CD's. I bought Madonna's newest CD, have no idea if it's even good. I even gambled and got the deluxe version.
Outfit picture was taken in the late afternoon when light was harsh.
Acne pony hair cap, Acne leather moto. APC striped cashmere sweater, True Religion Cameron boyfriend jeans. And I'm wearing purple lipstick, Mac's Heroine. 
Bonus pictures of the cherry blossoms. I lucked out because today alternated between sun and rain.

    Great walking around outfit with awesome variety in textures.   Beautiful trees! Man I have to get out for a walk in the park before the sun goes down...

    You look just right for the occassion. But oh my goodness! Those cherry blossom pics are wonderful! It snowed here in southern
    New England! Three plus inches!

    Gorgeous pics. Love the vibe of your outfit, and the mix of patterns between your sweater and your shoes.

    Nice outfit!  Where are the slip on sneaks from?

    So glad the cherry trees were still beautiful for your walk.  Thanks for sharing those pictures.  I love cherry trees!  Wish we had them here.

    Look at those trees! And all the people out enjoying them. Do people in Seattle plan parties on blankets under the blooming trees like they do in Japan?
    Your outfit looks perfect for your day. Everything looks so green and blooming. I did see my first dandelion of the season blooming today :)

    Oops I forgot they're my lace Givenchy slip ons from either last year or the year before. I guess it was a big hit for them, because the exact same style is available this year.

    Killer all round.

    Fab outfit and those cherry trees are amazing, aren't they? You look great!

    Love the outfit. It's just right like Goldilocks. The cherry trees are awesome. It's fun to be under the trees in the blossom fall. So pretty.

  • CocoLion replied 9 years ago

    Wow, that's the perfect moto jacket!  Must check out Acne leather jackets now.I also love the way the slip ons pattern mix with the cashmere striped top.  You're looking great Anna. 

    Picture #4 is beautifully composed.

    Great outfit, I love the slip on sneakers. We're still locked in cold, snowy weather here, so I appreciate seeing those pretty cherry blossoms. Hopefully something, anything, will be able to bloom here soon!

  • Diana replied 9 years ago

    Perfect spring outfit. I love how you really make pieces that might seem mundane (striped shirt, jeans, leather jacket) really stand out. Love the shoes and cap with this.

    Gooooorgeous pictures. Wish I was in seattle right now.

    Great look! I agree with CocoLion: Love the pattern mixing on the sneaks and top. Those sneakers are indeed gorgeous. And thanks for sharing the photos: I love the one with the little girl in her frothy lace skirt. She's dressed perfectly for the setting!

    Also agree, there's something especially fresh about the top and sneakers together..and I love your lipstick, it synchs you with your beautiful surroundings, thank you Anna for the proof that spring exists somewhere still freezing in the Northeast!
