I almost tripped myself over with this theme, because nearly everything I do is casual! So it stumped me for a moment to try and come up with soomething that was new and casual, without lookng like jsut another flatlay like I usually do.
What I ended up doing was coming up with something that is causal in the sense of comfort and ease of wear, but that still is rather detailed due to the pieces used. That's something I really love about lolita; because of the details inherent to basically ever item you use in a coordinate you can wear very easy pieces and still look really well dressed!
I haven't actually worn the tights used here yet (which is why they actually look nice laid out like this) but now I'm very excited to. In fact, I'm keen to wear this exact outfit! Which makes me happy, because I struggle a little to get excited about this skirt I made.
I also really enjoy how well the Axes Femme boots and bag match. I mean, it's not surprising given that they're from the same brand and bought at the same time, but still. The gobelin bag is an especial favourite of mine because I love how it gives a mis-matchy vintage vibe to any outfit that it's used in.
And this cutsew is just love! The lace is so pretty and it's just so simple and lovely. I really enjoy cutsews, almost more than blouses I think. Have to resist the urge to buy more...
For this look I'd go super simple with accessories; the matching headbow and a flower clip for colour balance, and a few little bracelets. It's enough to keep things interesting without adding too much.
As I said at the start, I actually really love this outfit. It's casual but so pretty, and I hope to wear it later this year!
