sakura blossoms in the rain


(jacket: vintage Levi's; dress: Forever 21; boots: Doc Martens; satchel: Suzutan;
watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs; rings: Brandy Melville)


photos by Lisa from Paint with Stars



Yesterday, I met up with my friend Lisa in Nakameguro to do a quick photo shoot with the pretty cherry blossoms near Meguro-bashi (Meguro Bridge). It was extremely windy that I thought our umbrellas were going to break! But the rain wasn't that bad so we went on with the shoot and these are some of the shots we got :) I'm really pleased with how Lisa captured the sakura in the background - it almost looks like whitish-pink snow. 


In contrast to my last outfit post, I really wanted to bring out my spring wardrobe with my ever-favorite vintage Levi's denim jacket and a light gray dress I found at Forever 21. I wanted to keep the whole outfit casual, so that was where my Doc Martens came in (also to keep my feet dry in the rain).  


I can't wait to see more cherry blossoms in the next week or few weeks because they are in bloom only for a short period of time. And I'm sure they are absolutely gorgeous at night as well! 




Love,

Samantha Mariko

    I was in Nakameguro last year and I definitely miss the lively atmosphere there during the cherry blossom season
