While we couldn’t make it out to Coachella this year, my sister and I went to a different festival to celebrate - the cherry blossom festival! DC becomes a madhouse this time of year - tourists and locals alike flock to the tidal basin to watch the blossoms blow in the wind and take their chances at trying to get a photograph without 20,000 people in the background. The traffic is nuts, the drivers are ruthless, and parking? Forget about it.
But you know what? It is totally worth the hype.
My sister Stephanie was in town, so she dressed up in her festival best and we braved the crowds to snap a few photos amidst the madness. While my style is more classic, Steph has a laid-back, hippy-chic with a bit of romantic edginess approach to fashion, which I love. That, mixed with the most beautiful time of year in DC, made for a perfect festival in the city.
