Summery Casual Sweet Lolita

SAM_4482 (2)

Hello everyone! This is my first time posting to daily_lolita since 2011. Where did the time go?
Lately I've been wishing for a livejournal revival, as I'm a rather nostalgic soul.
It makes me happy to see people still posting here so I am joining in, too!

I would describe my style as being very casual and sweet. I wear lolita pretty much whenever I leave the house, which is probably why the majority of my outfits end up being so simple, especially when it's hot outside. I only seem to fancy it up for big events. I really love old school lolita and I can see my style slowly starting to shift more in that direction.
Anyway, onto the photos!

In July, I took a weekend break to Paris! The weather was pretty painful (35-40°C...) but I was determined to wear lolita for the whole trip.
I opted for a blouse with open sleeves in an attempt to circulate some air flow to my body. The sleeves are a bit severe for sweet lolita but when it's hot you stop caring!

Later on in the month, I went out for afternoon tea with my friends. We went to a floating tea room on the Thames, which was not only very unique but affordably priced. Result!
Apologies for the blurry phone picture. So many of my outfit pictures are so bad because I'm usually in a rush when I remember to take them!

On this day, I headed out to the post office to send off a purchase from my online shop. I feel as though this dress is dying to be paired with rocking horse shoes so I think I might try to get my hands on some. The weather was really pleasant for me-- soft sunshine and warm with a breeze.

All dressed up and nowhere to go after plans got cancelled! I ended up sitting around in my bedroom taking old school ~lifestyler-esque photos of myself reading! Oh dear.

Yesterday, I went to a lolita meetup which involved a picnic and a lot of pinata destruction. I am posing with its ever cheerful remains. Shame I forgot to remove the backup cardi for the photo as it's cramping my style, though keeping me warm from the sudden bitter chill.
