New Year - New Haircut and Lots of Coordinating

Hi all...

I went to the hairdressers this week and I decided to get a new haircut with the coming of the New Year. 

Some length was cut off and the bob is all one length rather than concave. A wispy fringe with a slight angle has been cut in so its cute but not going to be too hot in summer.

I'm really happy with how it looks. 

I spent a bit of time on the weekend making some coordinates with Mystic Chiffon OP from Alice and the Pirates and Kuma Kumya's Sweet Chocolate - high-waist JSK from Baby the Stars Shine Bright. 

I used the bow off my navy beret and wore some open-toe shoes from a formal wear brand called Coast. 

Then, I added a feather bolero in the same colour from the same brand. I really like the pairing of navy and this soft-grey colour. 

I also enjoyed trying a couple of coordinates with Kuma Kumya's Sweet Chocolate.


I'm really loving combinations of berets and other accessories such as barrettes and headbands at the moment. I paired my Baby the Stars Shine Bright beret with the waist bow from the JSK. I have also realised that cardigans go well with high-waist items. I'm wearing a very versatile cardigan from Metamorphose in the above outfit. 

I decided to do something a little different and pair Kumya Kuma's Sweet Chocolate with a Navy high collar chiffon blouse from Angelic Pretty and some blue tights from Alice and the Pirates. I loved being able to change the style of this piece using accessories and supporting pieces. I still think this coordinate needs work but I enjoyed doing some experimenting with this outfit. 

If you've been following me on Instagram you would have seen that I have been doing quite a lot of coordinating practice. 


I have realised how difficult it is to create a summer coordinate with my current wardrobe and hope to work on improving that after April. 

In the meantime, it's practice, practice, practice. 

Until next time...


  1. Your new haircut really suits you!
    I like how simple yet well thought out your coordinates are <3

    1. Thanks for stopping by.
      I feel like this is where my style is. Simple to display the print yet working in colour blocks to coordinate. I'm really enjoying coordinating much more than I did when I began wearing Lolita fashion.
