Styling Stories: Cherry Blossoms and Sunlight Dwellings

Nature reawakens,
that she could sense the moment she set her foot on the slightly dewy field.
She took a deep breath, it was too cool to really heat her up,
but the freshness of the earthy air was fueling her with energy and warming her mind and soul.



Days filled with rain were still not rare,
but during the month of March even the rain changed,
with each drop seeping into the earth, roots would recharge,
it was as if she could feel the environment around her growing.

With days getting longer, warmness comes with more sun exposure,
she could only wanted to envelope herself into the untouchable blanket of  light.
It was as if the little streaks were dancing on her cheeks,
this is truly the first day of spring.



Cherry blossoms were already showing their heads,
she could only imagine the extent of their beauties, when fully bloomed.
In her fascination, nothing could really disturb that moment of satisfying yearning,
nothing but a whirlwind called life.

The 5 year old version of me was already amazed the first time experienced the truly blossoming beauty of cherry blossoms and even till this day, that stage of fascination hasn't stopped. It's not only their stunning soft flowers that was causing me to never lose sight of them, it was also the fact that these delicate blossoms only bloom for a short amount of time. After that, their prior beauty would visually vanish the less flowers were on the trees.
The same happens to us: we only have short amount of time to display our full beauty. And by that I don't necessarily mean the fresh young skin without wrinkles till you are 30, I mean the beauty of happiness and satisfaction in life.
The difference to cherry blossoms are, that we do not bloom according to seasons, we bloom according to the sweet moments we make by ourselves. These moments won't last forever, which is why we should not waste time to be angry about something or somebody or overthink a certain situation. Just be YOU. Create your own happiness.

That's it. Happy last day of March!

  1. What an inspiring and beautiful post, Enting! I loved reading your words and they reminded of Shakespeare's sonnets, where he talks about transience and compares life to the seasons. Flowers need water and sunshine so that they can bloom and they have no influence on that, in contrast to us - we can 'water ourselves' and choose to make ourselves happy by not dwelling on the negative aspects and by creating all those sweet moments. xx

    1. Thank you Mira, for your sweet and lovely words! Never has someone compared my words to those of the great Shakespeare hahaha, I'm flatted! I like your idea that we "water ourselves" like flowers draw their energy from nature. Spring is truly coming and spreading these vibes are a great motivation!

  11. There really is something so magical about seeing cherry blossoms that warms up your heart and lets in a flood of optimism. I've tried to make it down the DC for the cherry blossoms 2-3 times but I can never seem to get my timing right, haha. Whoops!

    But anyway, you look so lovely in these photos and you're kicking major ass in this perfect winter-to-spring transitional look. Bring on the layering (at least until summer drenches us in sweat).
