Spring Fever – DC Style

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

your beau in a romantic setting like The Greenhouse at The Jefferson hotel below. 










Or for true al fresco dining, try DC hotspots Perry’s in Adams Morgan,

Poste Moderne in Penn Quarter and Kafe Leopold’s in Georgetown.

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

Montrose, Battery Kemble and Dumbarton Oaks above.  




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.



Ts looks 01

As for the rest of my spring wardrobe – I need to do some serious shopping.

Here are some looks I’d like to rock … from Jigsaw, Two Minds and Pucci respectively.




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!
