Ok, so occasionally, I can't be bothered to wear lolita. Instead I'll dress in something inspired by J-fashion, keeping it cute and comfortable, but definitely not boring! This post is going to be a quick, reflective style-related one about things I'm currently trying out.
On Thursday I took a trip into town to do a spot of shopping-- not for anything exciting, just bits and pieces I'd run out of.
I decided to go for my hi-low skirt from Miss Selfridge, which is comfortable yet has a romantic, chic feeling to it.
I like how my hair turned out, too. I tried this style last month at a very rainy lolita meetup so it was a mess as soon as I step outside my house. This time, the weather was much more forgiving. I recently dyed my hair jet black which makes it look a lot sleeker and shinier than it did when it was a dingy dark brown.
I think the box fringe in conjunction with strands at the sides (I guess they're kind of like a hime cut but a bit softer) looks really nice. I like that the majority of my hair is up, but there's still something there to create some interest and frame my face nicely. I think I'll stick to this as much as possible! I've also started experimenting with hair extensions (as seen in my Christmas post and first vlog), and I think they're definitely something I should make more use of from now on. I just seem to have the sort of face that needs a lot of hair around it! Not exactly a new revelation, but one I'm not going to be so lazy as to ignore from now on.
Well, I think that's about everything for today. What are your favourite casual hairstyles, and cute fashions for when there's no point getting super dressed up? I'm making a lot of effort at the moment to try and improve my general look, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for looking, and see you next time lovelies ❤
