KERA snap and picnic

Hello dear readers! How are you?

It's a nice day in England, and I have been doing some writing in the garden. Also, I've taken the opprtunity to handwash some of my clothes! Handwashing is a never ending task for lolitas, isn't it? At least it should all dry quickly today.

This post is from a while back, it was the day I went to the KERA snap at Marui and then had a picnic in nearby Shinjuku Gyoen. This was my outfit:

Hat: Handmade
Blouse: Atelier Pierrot
Skirt: Jane Marple
Gloves: Vintage

I really love this Atelier Pierrot blouse with big puff sleeves. It is very historical looking and I feel like a girl in a story book! For the purposes of the snap I said my theme was 'Country Lolita'. I really like the idea of country lolita and I want to make more outfits in that style. Alice a la mode/Alice Deco used to have a lot of nice country coordinates that weren't typical. What happened to that magazine? It was so creative!

Here's a better look at my hat. As you can see, this was taken at the park. It was such lovely weather- sunny and warm but not too hot, windy or humid! There were lots of young families out and very cute children tumbling about.  

It was a good situation for wearing country lolita. One strange thing though- there appeared to be cat litter sprinkled on the grass all around!

Is it fertilizer or something? Weird!

I'm delighted to say that my picture got into the snap, along with Shinobu and Aviva/go_slow_ly!

I can't tell you how happy I am to see my picture in there. I wish I could go to the snap every month but I've only made three so far. I hope I can go to many more when I return in the autumn!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Have a lovely weekend wherever you are!



  1. I really love your outfit!!!
    I have a blouse with sleeves that look like yours XD

  2. i love that blouse so much

  3. You look great, dear! I really love your hat <3

  4. What a beautiful outfit! I would love to wear something like that. Personally, I agree with you about Country Lolita. It is such a nice style that should get a little more attention. It is especially nice in the summer months. I really love how you put all these pieces all together, it's so sweet and darling looking. And I love that hat! How did you make something that awesome? Did you repurpose an old hat and give it new life or something? It's really beautiful and you did such a good job. I like hats a lot and when people wear hats with Lolita I always go to pieces, especially if it really complements the rest of the co-ord. I hope you're enjoying the summer months in England! How is that there anyway? I don't much about England generically and I'm curious.
