hanami in jeans and seashell peach

The Japanese people have the tradition of hanami, gathering in great numbers wherever the flowering cherry trees are found. Thousands of people fill the parks to hold feasts under the flowering trees, and sometimes these parties go on until late at night. In more than half of Japan, the cherry blossoming days come at the same time of the beginning of school and work after vacation, and so welcoming parties are often opened with hanami. Usually, people go to the parks to keep the best places to celebrate hanami with friends, family, and company coworkers many hours or even days before. In cities like Tokyo, it's also common to have celebrations under the sakura at night. Hanami at night is called yozakura (夜桜, literally "night sakura"). In many places such as Ueno Park, temporary paper lanterns are hung to have yozakura.

The cherry blossom season is currently approaching its peak in many locations across Kyusu and southern Shikoku. In Tokyo, the blossoms opened on March 31, in Osaka on April 2 and in Kyoto on April 3. Full bloom is typically reached about one week after the opening of the first blossoms.

Nic is enjoying hanami in her jeans and her romantic april blouse in pearl. Two topics are coming together in this post: My jeans project (see several post from this week) and the next colour of the 52 weeks of Color Challenge of Luna Jubilee: seashell peach.
Trends come and go but classics are here to stay. No matter what the latest trends are, women will need their basics, and a pair of jeans that fit you like a glove will never go out of style.
Here is nr. 6: the jeans from Calypso Gianno.

This jeans is one of my favorites. I have this one already several years. So i HAD to put this one in my row of jeans outfits. You get on marketplace a full pack with all the classic jeans that Calypso Giano made just for 199ld. Unisex, 8 blue jeans and 4 black jeans, short and lowrise included. Higly quality realistic textures and fine fabric wrinkles.
The new blouse from PurpleMoon is so soft and loose. The colour pearl is the same as seashell peach in my opinion. Pearls grow in seashells isn't it? And remember this tip: Opposites attract! So when your bottom is loose and wide combine it with a narrow top.When your bottoms are tight choose a loose oversized top.
I am a huge i-phone fan in sl..and i am thrilled to tell you this one is free and has a nice animation!!!!! I love french tip pumps, bought the expensive ones from Celoe, but now found these free ones!!!!! So exited about it. The bag is the package from a groupgift. In it is another black bag and hair.
