Cherry blossom season in DC is absolutely one of my favorites. Despite the tourists (and god, there are so many tourists) it's impossible not to get a smile on my face when I see the flowers start to bloom everywhere.
This year I roped one of my friends (hi Britany!) into going with me and she saved me from being that weirdo with a tripod. She not only took some phenomenal outfit photos, her artistic sensibilities resulted in some close ups and such that I wouldn't have even thought to try on my own.
And to ruin the "mystique" a bit, let me assure you that these were not the shoes I walked around the Tidal Basin in. They're great for a day at the office but I had a very reasonable pair of 1" sandals for the long haul, lol.
