Our visit to Osaka Castle during the Cherry Blossom Festival was absolutely wonderful. We dined at a gorgeous rooftop restaurant for lunch, made the climb to the castle’s top level observatory deck to see an incredible view of Osaka city, and had plenty of time left to stroll the castle grounds and garden, walking amongst the 600 stunning cherry blossoms in full bloom under the warm, blue skies before the heavens opened up and rained for a few hours. Here’s everything you need to know about visiting Osaka Castle.

Green has always been my favorite color.

In this week’s installment of Spring Essentials, I’ve paired natural wooden and woven pieces, with light airy white clothing and pops of green accessories that not only will hold up season after season, they will never go out style, so you can bring your wardrobe out of hibernation and wake it up with this playful color palette.

My blog started because of my love obsession with the Lilly Pulitzer brand. I run a Facebook group dedicated to styling the brand with nearly 40,000 members in it, and I went from 0-40k followers on IG because of a few viral flatlay and closet pictures that garnered hundreds of thousands of shares on Tumblr, Twitter, and Pinterest, so it’s easy to see why the pink and green brand will always have a special place in my heart. It’s because of this fondness for the color of pink sakura trees, blushing cheeks, and bright summer colors that I created this week’s Spring Essentials post. I hope you enjoy it! Ps. stay tuned for a few Lilly Pulitzer themed essentials coming up!
