LBC: Create A Coord That Sparks Joy

Recently, the world has been in turmoil. Frightening us all with one thing after another, currently keeping many of us in enforced quarantine to help prevent making things worse, keeping us all safe. So for matters of trying to find that one little spark of light, the Lolita Blog Carnival is trying to bring a little frilly frivolity to our days, making a coord that sparks joy. This prompt was both ridiculously easy and difficult for me.

Really easy because wearing frills sparks joy for me. Getting up in the morning and thinking of pieces I have that I would really to wear for the day, when I used to work and errands and all, being frilly was just a nice icing on the cake sort of deal. But recently it's more to beat the blues.

With this coord I actually put it together for the #eglstaypril coordinate challenge, created by @thefabledfawn on Instagram. This was for day 8, Incorporate another J~fashion into your coord and I went with Mori style. I don't often go this hardcore with Mori but I LOVE it dearly. My life goal is to be a secluded little witch in the woods, harvesting plant leaves and flowers for tea, covering myself in flowers. 

I think I did an okay job of it. I also wanted to get a little bit of that Alphonse Mucha vibes for it, though I know I didn't do that well enough, can't get my hair to be that intense and fabulous, I just try my best.

In the end, I think I did good enough. Flowers and layers in everything down to my jewelry, detachable collar, and flower printed jsk. This may be one of my more favorite coordinates I've put together and it definitely sparks joy. It was also very comfortable too.
