This time of the year is the best time to visit the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. I normally do not visit because I have done this for years being that I live in the area. I decided to go this year because I wanted to capture the most intriguing photographs of the cherry trees and bring them to life through my lens. I should say it feels like an adorned garden with a splash of pink hues on each tree.
Ever since I started blogging, I gained a tremendous love for photography therefore, I try to capitalize on any opportunity I get to play with my camera. Sandwiched by the Potomac River, you get to see the cherry blossoms cascading from each tree as you embrace the beauty of spring. There is always tones of people which sometimes isn’t practical to go if you want to get dazzling superb shots of the trees with minimal obstacles.
I always wonder how mesmerizing the Tidal Basin would be around 6am in the morning. Cherry trees with drizzles of morning dew. My imagination is blown with eager. The weather was incredibly gorgeous when I visited so I thought, why not wear my long floral maxi (alternative here & here) from Mango. I purchased this find last year right around the time I was going to Hawaii. I didn’t get a chance to wear it so I decided to save it for this year’s spring and summer.
I love how the pink cherry trees bounce off well on this fiery orange floral piece. Definitely got a lot of compliments on the dress (alternative here & here) which was nice and sweet. I opted for these pointed toe flat shoes from Mango as well. I wanted to stay neural with the accessories without going over board so I went with this cognac cross body bag (alternative here, here & here) and my Jord watch.

If you visit the district around this time of the year, you definitely have to go see the cherry blossoms by the Tidal Basin. It’s worth a good memory.
