Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper's spring 2019 cherry blossom pics
Oversized cardis, or "Grandpa" cardigans, as they're adorably referred to nowadays, have made a surprising comeback in 2019. I used to think of cardigans as an "old lady" item, but I have since seen the light, realizing how stylish, effortless — and dare I say chic — cardigans can truly be.

Cardigans may be a winter staple, but I'm making mine work all the way through spring with a few refreshing tweaks. First, I ditched my shirt — who needs 'em once May rolls around anyways? I then only buttoned this deep v-neck cardi in the middle, leaving the bottom loose and free to flash some skin now and then. I also bunched the sleeves a little bit to add some lived-in flair.

To balance out my baggy sweater, I slipped into a curve-hugging, silky maxi skirt. It served as the perfect feminine companion to my grandfatherly top. Finally, stark white chunky, athletic sneakers completed my look in a comfy-cool way. Just call this my go-to outfit formula for spring 👌

[cardigan: Trina Turk (I also like this one) // skirt: Anthropologie (sold out, but I also like this one) // sneakers: Nike // purse: Rag & Bone (super similar one here) // necklace: Dogeared (similar one here) //earrings: & Other Stories (I also like this pair) ]

These photos were snapped during a recent trip Antonio and I took to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. It was my first time there and I had gotten us tickets for their annual cherry blossom festival. Although it was super crowded, it was really cool too see so much pink in one place. 

I absolutely love cherry blossom season and every year I try to incorporate as many pink trees as I can into some shots. They never disappoint as a beautiful, whimsical backdrop!
