Yay! Spring is finally here!
…but also to wear Lolita a couple of times! It is finally warming up and I just recently got my hair ombre’d, so I’m a little bit more than motivated to take advantage of it all by dressing up more often.
First, I broke out my old Novelty dress! I discovered the hem was uneven (oops!) and took the opportunity to make a few design changes to simplify the dress in the process of fixing the hem.
I did a fun hairstyle I learn from Lilith Moon that I’m sure to use again with curly hair.

My husband and I took Parker on a walk to the pier for some ice cream, but our favorite ice cream parlor hasn’t reopened yet! We weren’t dismayed, and just grabbed some coffee for our stroll.
I love love love this skirt, but my new boots hadn’t come in yet! So I just threw something fun together. This skirt is also shorter than I remember XP but I was excited to wear it again with my Usakumya bag that an old friend gave me a few years ago.
It was a bit windy but the puppy enjoyed watching the birds and smelling the lake smells.
Skirt: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Button Camisole: Dillard’s
Lastly, my husband took me on a fun “fancy” date to the Melting Pot the other night and I FINALLY got to wear my Musee du Chocolat skirt that I got on our honeymoon! I had been putting off wearing the skirt because my brown blouse isn’t done/been on hold and I never had a good occasion to super dress up. But I decided that I WANTED TO WEAR IT! So I made it work.
Even though I wore boots and a demin blazer, I loved wearing Lolita again. A few people have called it a “casual Lolita coordinate”, and maybe it is, but it felt like wearing full on Lolita again, even if it wasn’t OTT 🙂

I recently got my hair ombre’d and my hairstylist/hairwizard recommended this awesome product:
It is Paul Mitchell Sea Spray for curls and waves and a substitute for hairspray. It brings out your natural wave, rather than simply gluing curl in place. I have used it a couple times instead of hairspray after curling and LOVE the effect. It looks much more natural and relaxed. Certainly something to look into if you curl your natural hair.
