Coord & Wardrobe Catch-up March-May

Taking a short break in between the Japan travel diaries for catching up with the coordinations/outfits I've worn last months and recent purchased pieces!

Tea Party time!!
For easter I had a lot of choice, because I own at least three dresses with bunnies on them, but the obvious choice was going for Happy Garden (not worn yet and pure Easter!). And just a week before there would be OTT Tulips: an OTT tea party in Amsterdam, which was really nice ♥ ! To be honest, I was pretty unsure if my outfit would be over-the-top enough, since I usually don't wear big things on my head. If you've been a lolita for the last years you know that a lot of people really go BIG for the huge events. Literally, hair-do's that are as huge as people's faces and nothing is plain, everything perfectly matched. I was really busy the weeks before the event (our ferret Annie died :( ) so I had little time to do stuff and crammed in some time in the nights of the days before the event.

Luckily I found this small basket at Dille & Kamille, decorated it with some cute fabric, bow and feathers and I just had to take this bunny and chicky with me. The yellow shoes I bought in Japan are decorated with pink bow clips I already had and I put extra feathers in there as well. And then the main extra was the headdress, made with yellow and lavender lace, feathers, fake eggs and chicks and a flower. I added some extra pink bows on the shoulder straps to add some extra pink accents to match the rest. So..maybe it was as big as other people's take on OTT, but for me this is quite some effort to what I do usually and I was pretty happy with it too, loved wearing something very spring & easter-themed!



The week after that was Easter for real and my husband and I planned a brunch on the friday since we had both did something different for the saturday and sunday. I took maximum use of the Happy Garden jsk and wore it with some simple pinks this time! Sorry for the flowers on my face but I was really looking weird on that photo, but it was the best pose-wise :P. On the monday we still had a 'bank holiday' and I wore my other bunny dress with another handmade accessory that I had for a while.

Funny enough another week after that there was the spring holiday for a week, so even more chance to wear lolita fashion ✿ yay! We went to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the cinema and it wasn't really hard to make a matching coord at all for it.
So happy I could wear these cute socks with the constellation dress too! I went for just a bow on my head though, since it was very crowded in the city because of Kingsday and we were just going to the movies anyway. Did you see the movie too, if so what did you think of it? I really enjoyed it again, it's great to see a more emotional approach from Marvel.
Casual outfit because we had to cycle!
The yellow bag might be a bit random
but I really felt like using it that day.
The cupcake bracelet was
made by my mom-in-law ♥!

Yay for spring! Yesterday was a very sunny Sunday so I thought it would be great to do a walk through one of the biggest parks in town and finally without a coat too. I didn't plan on wearing lolita in the first place but it was such a relaxing day that I just played around with some clothes to wear and thought: why not. It wasn't so great for my husband though because he had to wait longer suddenly. Sorry love <3 next time I'll let you know in time!

And last update for now. I bought AP's Toy March in navy! Whaaaat? Yes! Really, it's been one of my fav. prints but it usually is too pricy for me so that's why I didn't put it on my wishlist (I guess I was just a realistic?). But I saw that someone was selling it for a while and suddenly dropped the price so I took my chance. So girls, put all your dreamdresses for real on the dreamdress list because one day...you might really get it ♡!
