NATIONAL CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL

The National Cherry Blossom Festival is a big yearly event that draws millions of people to the Capital. A lot of activities and events are planed over the corse of 3 weeks. The festival honors both the American and Japanese cultures as well as the long lasting relationship between the United States and Japan. Beauty to the eyes are the trees once they are at their peek bloom.

Fact: “The first donation of 2,000 trees, received in 1910, was burnt to the ground on orders from President William Howard Taft. Insects and disease had infested the gift, but after hearing about the plight of the first batch, the Japanese mayor sent another 3,020 trees to DC two years later.” via washington.org
Because the Cherry Blossom parade takes place tomorrow, I though I would give you some super last minute outfit inspirations of what to wear if you are planning on going. I kept it casual but fun while focusing on comfort. The weather should be partly cloudy so I incorporated lightweight long sleeves to keep you warm.
