I don’t think I have ever been so excited for spring.
We just endured a brutal winter here in Washington and I think we’re
all ready for a new season. The good news is that thanks to all that snow,
spring seems to have come early to the nation’s capital. Our magnificent
cherry blossoms are already blooming and this past weekend’s temps were
absolutely heaven-sent. In celebration of nature’s glorious transformation,
Luxe & Lucid is highlighting all things fun, fresh and flowery this week.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh … spring has arrived!
H&G’s 2007 issue with Chloë Sevigny embodies the magic of spring.
The stone terrace, the roses, the dress … inspiring and lovely.
Is there a more beautiful spot in spring than DC’s tidal basin?!
The perfect finish to a day of viewing cherry blossoms? A late afternoon lunch with
Or for true al fresco dining, try DC hotspots Perry’s in Adams Morgan,
Or just skip lunch altogether and have a sexy, disheveled romp in the park!
Louis Vuitton does it with dirt, doves and Lara Stone.
I do actually love spending my weekends in the park (sans romp); it’s a necessity
when one has a dog. DC has incredible outdoor destinations. My favorites are
Great for casual Saturdays and Sundays walking around Georgetown,
these bamboo-buckled Gucci flats are a warm weather staple for me.
As is this playful tote. I call it my “brunch bag". I carry it on
weekends when I’m running errands and lunching with my girls.
As for the rest of my spring wardrobe – I need to do some serious shopping.
And for evening maybe a flowing pastel ensemble from Donna Karan.
Perfectly timed with the onset of spring, I received this card last week. The modern
cherry blossom motif speaks to the brighter, sunnier days of spring. It inspires
me to punch up my interiors with deep, saturated colors – especially yellow.
Like the chairs in this Vicente Wolf dining room …
… and the walls in this dynamic bedroom.
(who’s the designer?!)
Luxe & Lucid wishes everyone a wonderful spring.
And come see the cherry blossoms if you can – you'll never forget it!
