Autumn inspiration.

I have noticed this autumn I am leaning more and more towards colour. So far my closet has been dominated by black but I am adding more and more colours, like dark red, blue, brown and different greys. I have even gotten brown shoes so I can wear outfits with no black at all. It seems that though I love gothic lolita, classic has been taking more and more room in my closet and in my heart. In a away it was inevitable as I have always loved historical influences in lolita. 

Also during autumn time I always get fascinated by the dollykei and mori girl styles and wish incorporate them to my lolita coordinations. Part of this migth be the fact that I feel those styles are warm and cocoony which works nicely in hopefully cooling Finland. 

 As for accesories there is ofcourse my everfavorite hats but also scarfs of diffenrent colours (I learned a new way to tie mine during summer and have been itching to try out.) and ofcourse headbands. I have also found my love of pearls and gold again. They give such a pleasent old fashioned feel to necklace or pin. And as always one of my biggest inspirations are books even more so now that I study to be a librarian. And trust me when I say that we will be seeing a lot more books in the near future...

What inspires you this autumn, dear reader? Please do share in the comments.

  1. I love the outfit you put together! I often find Tartan to look very cute and girly, but you've made it look much more elegant!

    1. Tartan is one of my favorite patterns and so versitile. Thank you!

  2. That outfit is great, I love tartan a lot! This autumn I really like a combination of knitted things and elegant accessoires, I enjoy the contrast!
