Happy First Day of Spring! Floral may be the traditional pattern for the season, but I am deciding right here and now that fruity prints should make their comeback. No, it’s not because one of the few places we’ve been able to venture to the past year is the grocery store. Hear me out:

I recall cherry print’s peak in the early 2000s quite fondly on those ribbed tank tops we all can remember as tweens if you’re a later millennial or early Gen-Zer (I’m right on the cusp). As a 24-year-old who has a firmer grasp on my sense of personal style than middle school me, I find cherry print on more timeless pieces like a sweetheart neckline wrap top to be worthy go-to and easily dressed up, with a red wrap skirt and white go-go boots, or down with light-wash mom jeans. Since outdoor dining has been back and the weather permits, this is a look I’d dawn at Brunch with friends, like my outing with my lovely bestie Mari, who took these photos.

Cherry motifs also conjure up another childhood memory for me: my cousins and I picking the first cherries of the season with our grandfather at our grandparent’s house. I was quite young, a few years old, but I can see the memory like a blurry, analog photograph: my family and I eating the freshly picked fruit on hot summers day in the Central Valley. Sometimes, I recall the simplicity of those moments and how precious they were. I wear the cherry print as a legacy to the little girl, who in her twenties has promised herself to capture the inhibited joy of childhood in her demeanor, her attitude, and wear it as a sealed vow on her clothing. Entering into spring, the season of renewal, I have hope for better days ahead. With hope available in the form of a COVID-19 vaccine and the world slowly opening up, I want to practice and wear joy.

What are you most looking forward to this spring?
