University Lolita Coordinates!

Hey everyone!

I'm feeling pretty positive about this year so far, and have some exciting things coming up soon!
But before I can reveal those, I'll start off with the interview I took part in over at Tartan Kawaii's blog! I was asked about various kawaii aspects of my life. She has been interviewing a handful of others interested in cute Japanese fashions so you should check it out! You can read my interview here.

Next, I thought I would post a few of my university coordinates from the past couple of weeks here. Yes, I wear lolita to uni! It's what I wore on the very first day because I wanted to start as I meant to go on. I have never gotten anything but positive feedback for it (including one lecturer actually researching lolita fashion and having a really good discussion with me about it!) so if it's what you want to do, then you totally should.

Now, onto the coordinates!

Blouse: Primark, Bolero: Bodyline, Skirt: Rabbit Heart Shop, Shoes: Bodyline
This coordinate is from Monday 20th January, which was the first day of term for 2014. I wanted to be cute and yet classy and I think I managed to pull it off. I think I like the sweet/classic hybrid of lolita. I'm not generally a fan of ankle socks on top of tights but it has been very cold and I don't own any lolita boots. I need to sort that out...

Coat: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright, Shoes: An*Tai*Na
This was the very next day, Tuesday 21st January. I don't really remember what I wore underneath my coat but I wanted to get a picture of my coordinate anyway! When I'm wearing something bright and sweet like this coat I will often counteract it by having simple or no hair accessories to make my coordinate more casual for day to day life.

Bolero: Bodyline, Jumperskirt: Bodyline, Shoes: Primark
This final coordinate is from Monday 27th January. I kept things super casual by wearing canvas flatforms instead of lolita shoes, and not wearing a lolita blouse. I like the contrast of pink and black in this coordinate, though I'm itching as I look at this photo to change to tea party shows and a nice collar! Oh well... you have to dress down sometimes.

I couldn't resist wearing this big old canotier thing that a friend bought for me! I was overwhelmed by such a kind gesture, and it's grown to be one of my favourite accessories!

Do you wear lolita to school/university/college/work? How do you dress down your style for day to day life? I'd love to hear about it in the comments! As always, thank you so much for reading! 


  1. you look so adorable!! I used to wear lolita to school quite frequently (though not so much anymore; I don't think I did at all last semester...) but my outfits were all so very casual, haha. lots of cute t-shirts and cardigans, and no petticoats!

    1. Thank you, dear! :) I've gone through periods where I can't be bothered to wear it to uni, but I try to make myself sometimes because I know it'll cheer me up! I know I'll be even more casual in the summer and also do the cute t-shirt thing... but at the moment, all the standard loli layers help to keep me warm. Haha I didn't have a petticoat in any of those photos, hence the skirt grabbing XD

  2. Those are lovely coordinates! Also congrats on your interview! I'll head over to read it. :)

  3. Ah such cute coords! I wish I had the confidence to wear lolita to my school, but I'm afraid the petticoats might get in the way. (I have very poofy petticoats)

    1. Thank you! :D I usually just have really low-level puffiness along with bloomers and that tends to be enough (I didn't even have a petti in these pictures!) I always make sure I wear a nice petti for meetups but when you're just going to sit in a lecture for a couple of hours or hit the library it's not necessary to go all out! I've never received any negative reactions wearing lolita to uni, so it's definitely worth trying out if you feel like dressing up sometimes :)
