As I stepped out of the Mini onto the grounds of the Imperial Palace, I knew I was back in my beloved home city. The black pine trees that line the outer gardens of the palace grounds took my breath away and brought me back to a peaceful zen state. The Japanese black pine or ‘kuromatsu’ is a classic bonsai subject which requires great patience and a traditional horticultural icon. The 2,000 plus kuromatsu planted along the lawn blend seemingly with the surrounding architecture remnant of the Edo period and the skyscrapers of the modern times. Simply stunning.
With spring (hopefully) just around the corner, Sister Jane’s Navarino shirt dress was the perfect piece for a whimsical stroll around the Imperial Palace. The pale pastel and floaty cut of the dress made me think of the approaching cherry blossom season and I teamed the ‘wishing for spring’ look with the fusia pink Sunita Mukhi clutch. The eye design gives any look the desired coolness and is surprisingly generous in size to hold all the handbag essentials.
