Analogue outfit with just a tiny touch of contrast - and gold :-)
How do you dress for visibility at a festival that includes lots of guests dressed in Japanese Manga outfits? A bit of colour?
My husband visits this festival nearly every year to take photos, and with okay weather this Saturday I wanted to go too. The blooming trees are incredibly beautiful!
The Japanese cherry trees in full bloom are a vision! No wonder the place was crowded :-)
Lots of people brought their picnic baskets and blankets and had a wonderful time.
It's just magical when the wind sprinkles pink petals all over. A golden opportunity for more photos of me :-D
The jacket is a very old sale item by Danish brand Bitte Kai Rand and has appeared in several blog posts over the years. It has a thick lining so it's warm and soft, as well as bright and shining :-D
The pink dress is a golden oldie as well - by now closed British brand Alexon. It's actually a size too large as I was testing the different UK sizes - and never bothered to return it. I wonder how often that happens with things bought on the internet...
It's still an impressive sight seeing the trees from above:
I can't get enough of these trees, so here's another photo, also showing my lovely husband :-)
Due to a massive queue at the Japanese food stalls we decided to eat lunch at a local cafe.
The interior is in the popular Scandinavian Industrial Chic style which I'm getting a bit tired of. However, this restaurant has one remarkable feature, that I'm showing below the food pictures.
I'm having salmon rillette with two kinds of brown bread. For those who aren't familiar with rillette it's like a coarse mousse.
For a touch of "Noma" some wild herbs were added, to justify the price I assume...
But, on top of the restaurant there's an extremely minimalist roof garden (with only moss and a few flat, hardy succulents) - with stranslucent windows between the "flower beds", that you see from below in the restaurant's ceiling.
You can see the roof top garden across the parked cars. Taking this photo I'm actually standing on the building that houses Monies, my favourite jewellery brand :-) that has a sale next month :-D
A few steps to the right of the outdoor seating area is a sculpture:
I had been warned ahead, that there wasn't any space left, but I kept pushing this clean-up in front of me. Until I was forced to do it! As always, these things never happen at a convenient time, which is why you should do it as soon as possible (I'm sounding like someone's mother here!)
So, act quick, stay ahead and have a lovely week everyone :-)
