Spotted: The Perfect Cherry Blossom Festival Dress

The trees might not yet be in bloom—but your outfit can be.

Alice + Olivia Catherine gathered skirt A-line dress, $597.

Though the seemingly never-ending cold has managed to push back the peak bloom date of Washington’s tourist-magnet cherry blossoms again (and again, and again), there are still plenty of National Cherry Blossom Festival events happening, with or without the namesake flowers. So obviously you need something appropriately festive to wear, right? Luckily we found this ruffly confection of a cherry-blossom-print sundress right in the nick of time. Apparently Alice + Olivia’s design team was really feeling the DC-centric print this year—check out the brand’s delicate, feminine pumps and this darling (and perhaps more practical) cap-sleeve silk frock. Best part? Even once the pretty pink blossoms are long gone, the dress will still be equally lovely.

    These dresses are adorable---for someone who's under 35. What about all the friends of the bride's parents, who are over 50? There are very few of these that are suitable. How about a little consideration for us?
