Lolita Blog Carnival: My Style Outside Lolita

Hi lovelies,

it's friday again, and that means Lolita Blog Carnival!

This week's topic is: Your style outside of Lolita.

Well, I like to dress differently every day and I change my style a lot, but at the moment I can narrow my every-day-style down to 3 categories:

Casual Lolita / Lolita-inspired

Jsk: handmade
Cutsew: handmade
Hairbow: Innocent World
Shoes: Deichmann
Especially now, when the weather is getting colder, I like to take out my petticoat again, wearing a nice skirt or jumperskirt with a t-shirt or cutsew and a bolero. I call this "outside Lolita", it's just very toned down. I don't accessoirze as much, make-up and hair are kept rather simple and I prefer to wear normal, elegant heels instead of classical Lolita platforms or rocking horse shoes.

Creepy-Cute (or whatever you want to call it)

Alice band, skirt & legwarmers: handmade
Earrings: handmade
T-shirt: Cupcake Cult
Shoes: Converse
Cardigan & tights: H&M
Yes, I must confess, I fell for it, too. I hope you understand, I'm magically drawn to everything that's either obscure or cute, so how would I be able to resist something that combines the two of them? I feel comfortable wearing black, at the moment I like to combine it with purple/pink or green. I also prefer wearing Chucks with this style, perfect for days I know I have to walk a lot or just don't feel like wearing high heels.

Mori Girl inspired

Merry-go-round necklace: Romwe
Owl jewellery: Claire's
Crochet vest: ebay
Gaiters: handmade
Shoes: Deichmann
(And yes, I'm very into pigtails right now, it's my favourite hairstyle: uncomplicated, cute and hides the fact I should visit the hairdresser's)
 Now, when the leaves are statring to turn into the most beautiful autumn colours, I like to dress in natural colours, such as browns and creams. Like this, I still can wear summer dresses, and the layering look is very comfortable (especially when the incompetent people at the university try to regulate the air conditioner!)

I hope you liked it!
If you're interested, here are some more blogs which are participating at this week's blog carnival. Have a look!


  1. Hello, nice to meet you. I'm also a member but its the first theme i participate in.
    Anyway I really like how you also seem to stick to a color scheme. Purple is a very rare color, i don't think i own anything in that shade actually.
    You look really cute in skirts as well! Thank you so much for sharing, this is a very interesting theme. <3

    1. Thank you! I like to wear skirts, I almost never wear jeans ^^ and lavender is such a pretty colour, I'm quite fond of it :)

  2. Your style is really cute! I love the Mori Girl-inspired outfit! And lol, we have Cupcake Cult items in my city (Derby)!

    1. Thank you! I love the Cupcake Cult shirts, I could buy mine here in a store too ^^

  3. The Mori girl inspired outfit is lovely, I adore it! Also, I love your hair, it is so natural and shiny! It's the perfect cross between sweet lolita and rockabilly like Betty Paige!

    1. Thank you! Lol, my hair is actually really hideous, I should have a haircut ^^ and it never does what I want, but I guess, a lot of people say that xD

  4. The last outfit is my favourite and it suits you very well. And I think I have the same shoes as you wear in the first picture. The are amongst my favourite Every-day-shoes.

    1. Thank you! It's quite new to me to wear something without a black item (outside of Lolita), but I felt very comfortable in the mori inspired outfit. The black pumps are quite new, I bought them a couple of weeks ago... but I love them too ^^

  5. magnificent post, very informative. I'm wondering why the other experts of this sector don't
    realize this. You must continue your writing.
    I am confident, you've a great readers' base already!

    Have a look at my blog post ...

  6. Wow! At last I got a web site from where I know how to actually take
    useful data regarding my study and knowledge.
