Okay, so this prompt was really freaking hard! Every option I thought of was easily followed by thoughts of the kind scenario I would happily wear it for. Yes, a lot of those situations were photoshoots, but still! I was really wracking my brain to try and figure out something that I like but couldn't see myself wearing. Serious, I was stumped.
Inspiration finally struck when I got my July haul in...
See, I love Jurassic Party, but the colour is a rare one in my wardrobe so my options are limited. This new cutsew really opens up my options...but I don't see myself wearing this skirt in this way!
Which is kind of a pity. I really like this look and I think I managed to nail the colour balance pretty well despite not having much that matches the dark purple.
But overall, it's both a little too monochromatic and a little too lavender for my tastes. I'm really enjoying adding more lavender into my lolita wardrobe, and am planning to add more purple as well, but for now, it's a bit much all together.
Which is not to say that it won't change! Even seeing this outfit out made me fall a little bit in love. I just don't think it's enough love when there's so many other ways I could coordinate this skirt that feel more "me".
In a weird way I was both happy and sad to have finally come up with a coordinate for this prompt. I'm glad that the topic is ticked off the list and I can move forwards, but it's an odd, bittersweeet feeling to put together something pretty and still not get excited to wear it.
What about you? Would you wear this coordinate?
