Spring Fever - DC Style

I don’t think I have ever been so excited for spring.

We just endured a brutal winter here in Washington

and I think we’re all ready for a new season. The good

news is that thanks to all that snow, spring seems to have

come early to the nation’s capital. Our magnificent cherry

blossoms are already blooming and this past weekend’s

temps were absolutely heavenly. In celebration of nature’s glorious

transformation, The Luxe Life is highlighting all things fun, fresh and

flowery this week. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh… spring has arrived!

H&G’s 2007 issue with Chloë Sevigny embodies

the magic of spring. The stone terrace, the roses,

the dress … inspiring and lovely.


Is there a more beautiful spot in spring than DC’s tidal basin?!


The perfect finish to a day of viewing cherry blossoms?

A late afternoon lunch with your beau in a romantic setting

like The Greenhouse at The Jefferson hotel below.


Or for true al fresco dining, try DC hotspots

Perry’s in Adams Morgan, Poste Moderne in

Penn Quarter and Kafe Leopold’s in Georgetown.

Or just skip lunch altogether and have a sexy,

disheveled romp in the park! Louis Vuitton

does it with dirt, doves and Lara Stone.

I do actually love spending my weekends in the

park (sans romp); it’s a necessity when one

has a dog. DC has incredible outdoor

destinations. My favorites are Montrose,

Battery Kemble and Dumbarton Oaks above.


Great for casual Saturdays and Sundays walking

around Georgetown, these bamboo-buckled Gucci

flats are a warm weather staple for me.


As is this playful tote. I call it my “brunch bag".

I carry it on weekends when I’m running

errands and lunching with my girls.

As for the rest of my spring wardrobe –

I need to do some serious shopping. Here

are some looks I’d like to rock ... from

Jigsaw, Two Minds and Pucci respectively.


And for evening maybe a flowing pastel

ensemble from Donna Karan.


Perfectly timed with the onset of spring,

I received this card last week. The modern

cherry blossom motif speaks to the brighter,

sunnier days of spring. It inspires me to

punch up my interiors with deep,

saturated colors – especially yellow.

Like the chairs in this Vicente Wolf dining room …


… and the walls in this dynamic bedroom.

Who’s the designer?!

The Luxe Lucid wishes everyone a wonderful spring.

And come see the cherry blossoms if you can -

you'll never forget it!
