As my family and I head to Japan for spring break, I am thinking about all of the spring favorites I will be packing. Naturally, I’ve been daydreaming about the iconic cherry blossoms and all the colorful looks I plan to wear as we explore this exciting country.

This season’s brightest pieces have an extra dash of allure. Silks are especially shiny in colors like red, fuchsia and teal, and a myriad of fabrics are stamped with punchy graphics, and adorned with elevated checks and the fiercest furry pets. How perfect will I look in Ginza, for example, with Marques’Almeida’s fun ruffle sleeve dress and trouser combo? And Rebecca de Ravenel’s tiger print skirt will blend in nicely in vibrant and ever inspiring Harajuku.

Since it is a transitional season, with the earth slowly thawing from winter’s freeze, cute outerwear is still a requisite. I don’t know about you, but it takes some time for my bones to warm up as early spring’s seesawing temperatures often leave me feeling uncomfortably chilly. But thankfully, tactile fuzzy jackets are on offer and they are the perfect remedy for goosebumps. Please picture me exiting the Shinkansen with Sies Marjan’s gorgeous mint green style draped over my shoulders – an ecliptic moment of slayage if I do say so myself.

Then, after a long day of taking in all of the glorious sites in Kyoto, I can totally imagine myself in a Ryokan situation with a traditional kimono layered over Hellessy’s wrap top and wide leg trouser. I mean what else?

What will you be wearing for spring break? Leave us a couple lines in the comments below.
