Lolita Blog Carnival: Your Style Outside Lolita

College Class Outfit
I’m so happy! This week the topic is one I suggested! Awesome. Anyway… How do I dress outside Lolita?
I’m a college freshman. I basically roll out of bed at about 10am every morning and throw on something comfy to wear to class. What does that entail? I like to have interesting graphic patterns and such on all my clothes. So I like to wear colorful/patterned jeans, cuddly jackets, eye-catching shirts, soft flats, and carry around a graphic tote with ipad and planner. (Fun fact- I actually have literally all the clothes pictured here! And the tote! I just had to find similar jewelry to my usual deal.)
How do you dress outside lolita? I’m generally pretty lazy compared to the rest of you lovely ladies. :)

Jewel-Tone Inspiration: Sapphire

Jewel-Tone Inspiration: Sapphire
For Fall, I’m inspired by jewel-tones; they are so effortlessly elegant, they pair very well with neutrals, and they look positively divine in my favorite fall fabric, velvet.
My first entry in this series is Sapphire. Though darker blue is traditionally paired with black in lolita, it goes well with white and beige as well, and can be warmed up with gold-tone accents. Sapphire easily switches between extravagant elegance and edgy-romantic based on what its worn with. For a more romantic feel, pair your favorite sapphire-hued skirt with some lace tights, a peter-pan collar sweater, and some sweet velvety heels. For that Moi-Meme-Moitie-esque extravagance, go for the most sumptuous accessories you can find to match your favorite OP.
