A Pop of Pink for Spring

The cherry blossoms are in bloom at my university, and everything is starting to look like spring! I am so happy that all of the flowers are blooming - it's definitely my favorite time of the year. Growing up, I had three cherry blossom trees at my house, and they always bloomed on or around my birthday, which made me so happy. As you all probably know, I absolutely love flowers, so I was always so excited that my favorite trees bloomed on my birthday. I'm so lucky to attend my university, because all of the buildings are so beautiful. It's even more breathtaking when all of the flowers start blooming - especially the quad due to all of the trees.

For today's post I was inspired by the Pantone color of the year, and Glossier (by the way, if you haven't heard of them before, check oucheck out their unique beauty products)! Both hues of pink are so pretty, so it was a lot of fun to incorporate the petal-pink color. It goes perfectly with my school's cherry blossoms, and it was a lot of fun hanging out there with Joycie (check out her blog here!) while taking some photos. I'm so glad one of the colors of the year is rose quartz, because it's a color that I like to wear all the time since it goes with my skin tone so well. I have a lot of things in the color, so it was hard to find only a couple of things to wear in that color!

I've had this maxi skirt for a little while now, and I love it so much! I got it from Pacsun, and the pale pink is so beautiful, and goes with so many things. The pleats are also so cute, and the slits give it a nice breezyness. The material is really sheer, but there's another layer that hits about mid-thigh so there's no underwear disasters.

 This crop top is from Forever21, and is one of my favorites, because I can pair it with so much. It has a pretty floral pattern with a couple of different shades of pink, so it looks nice with whatever it's paired with. I especially like it with this outfit, because it has both pale pink flowers, and also darker ones that go nicely with my jacket.

I got my maroon leather jacket from Nordstrom, and it's definitely a staple in my wardrobe. It can be paired with dresses, skirts, leggings, jeans...the list goes on and on. It's also surprisingly very warm, so it's perfect for this time of year, when the weather continuously goes between hot and cold.

 I of course had to wear my favorite lipstick, Angelic Nude from Tarte, since it's one of the prettiest pink lipsticks that I have come across. It pairs so well with any makeup look, and it's super moisturizing. I also used some pale pink Urban Decay eyeshadow, which is pretty much my favorite makeup look since it's so quick and easy to do.

It's been raining non-stop this last couple of weeks, so we definitely lucked out in timing these photos! Just as I was walking back to my dorm it started pouring again. It seems like March showers are going to bring April flowers this year, which is just as well with me since my birthday is early April!

I also decided to wear my favorite letter necklace with this outfit, because it matches so well! This is definitely one of my favorite necklaces, and I've had it forever. I don't really remember where I got it from since I've had it for so long! The poor chain isn't the best anymore, so I actually need to get another hook to fix it, but it still works.

 It's a lot more fun walking to class when you get to walk through the quad, and I don't find myself dreading it as much. Everyone always seems happier, too, since everything is so pretty and bright!

This is one of my favorite places in the quad, because the little path with the benches is so adorable! The cherry blossoms arch over the path, so it's always nice and shady.

I just can't get enough of these cherry blossoms!

Well, there you have it - my pop of pink outfit for the spring! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and love cherry blossoms as much as I do! They are, as I'm sure I have expressed thoroughly, my favorite trees, and I'm so happy it's almost spring. This year is flying by so quickly; I can't believe my birthday is in less than a month! It seems like Christmas was just yesterday, and here we are already to St. Patrick's Day and Easter!

Are you excited for spring?

Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)
