If there is anything we have learned on the east coast over the last week is that it is time to pull out more cozy and comfy coordinates. Though there are a lot lolitas who have their coordinates and wardrobes geared towards comfort some of us haven't. This week on the Lolita Blog Carnival we take to our wardrobes to do exactly that and create something we would find cozy and comfortable.
I've actually don't have much in the ways of sweaters or cardigans that would match much of my outfits. I do have 2 brand ones that I do wear when it's chilly but usually I pull out jackets and even boleros so I feel I don't have much that feel appropriate for this post. I think that it's just more my aesthetic to have things more tailored looking in some ways so it was hard to pull out pieces that fit this theme. What I did veer towards was this grey oversized sweater that I have and haven't really paired with my Lolita. I have a brown one that I recently did another cozy coord with but I decided to try working with this one and see if I could get any mileage out of it.
Though I could have gone with a few darker pieces I thought this might actually be a good mix. I quickly made a simple bow for this as I am always forgetting to make more white accessories and headgear, I didn't think anything too extravagant would help the cozy look. I do admit to cheating and reusing some of the style ideas from the last time I made an outfit like this, with the oversized necktie, simple headbow, and long sleeves peaking out, I think it just works well for the idea. I think once I put this all on it may feel like it works a bit better so I'll share that too, eventually.
