Hey everyone! It's been a little while since I did a more fashion-y post so I thought I would do an outfit update! I'm going to be sharing a few of my favourite recent lolita coordinates.
I've been having a lot more fun with fashion lately. I still wear lolita outfits here and there, but also experiment with vintage pieces, high street items, and lots of Lazy Oaf, which you'll see more of in another post.
Before we get started, I would like everyone to note that I clean the soles of my shoes after every single time I wear them, and that is the reason I'm OK to snap outfit pictures indoors with shoes on! Just thought I'd put that out there as it's the sort of thing I wonder about when I see other people take pictures with shoes on indoors!
First up, a berry coordinate. I really love wearing lolita in a casual, retro way, so my cherry print skirt is perfect for this. I've noticed that I tend to feel very inspired to put together lolita coordinates whenever I'm going to the post office. No idea why. My cute outfits are very much wasted on the rude staff who have a thing about overcharging me on international postage... #smallbusinesswoes.
Hair bow: Sugar Trampoline
Collar: Sugar Trampoline
Velvet top: Primark
Skirt: Sugar Trampoline
Tote bag: Metamorphose
This was an outtake of sorts but I quite like it somehow.
This next outfit was a little more experimental and not strictly lolita. I decided to incorporate some vintage knitwear. I wasn't sure if the houndstooth and the stripes would clash in a nice way, but I think the resultant coordinate had a cool, punk-ish edge to it that I'm really into!
Skirt: Chocolat-chan Going Out- Angelic Pretty
I thought this detail shot came out looking really artistic, haha.
As you can probably tell by this point, I've gotten really into monochrome with a splash of red, lately! I find the colour contrast to be quite delicious.
This was a post office outfit, too, and also served me well for taking me niece to nursery school. It was an unexpectedly warm and sunny day, and spring was most definitely in the air!
Hair bow: Sugar Trampoline
Jumperskirt: Serenade- Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Bag: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
I didn't put any pink in my hair when I got it re-done, and I'm thinking I made a mistake there, as for some reason it always looked really good with red! My rationale was that I needed to look professional for my job-hunting/interviews, but now I'm thinking that if and when they do come along, I could easily change my hair the night before. Hm. In the meantime, my all-black hair matches everything!
I have so much love for this jumperskirt. It's probably the one I get most compliments on from strangers, which is kind of funny considering how simple it is! There's something so charming about old school lolita pieces, and my lolita style has very much matured with this aesthetic in mind.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing how I've been wearing lolita lately! In my next outfit post I'll share how I've been coordinating my looks outside of lolita.
To end this post, have you guys found yourselves gravitating towards specific colour combinations lately? Have certain pieces or styles that you've been wearing a lot lately? I'd love to know about your recent outfits! Thank you so much for looking and reading, and I'll see you next time ❤
