The cherry blossom trees are out in all their pink, fluffy glory in Washington, but those spring temperatures are nowhere to be seen. Since I don't have the dedication of the two bloggers I saw down near the Tidal Basin taking pictures of sundresses while wearing nude tights and warming up in coats off camera, my fellow blogger Dana and I decided to go the more transitional spring route for our cherry blossom pics.
A classic trench and stripes are always one of my favorite combos, regardless of the season, and I've been obsessed with this trench cape since I picked it up at J.Crew last year. While they didn't carry it this season, this cropped style has the same vibe. Pair it with jeans, an old school Longchamp bag, suede loafers and you have a perfectly timeless spring look.
