LBC: Hot Weather Lolita Coordinates

Hi guys!

Even though I've no summer job, I feel that I've been quite busy lately. I've got so many things going on at the same time, that blogging just kinda has been on the background. I've got a lot of things to blog about though! I'll put together several posts next week after I return from my adventure in France.

The beginning of the summer was kind of hot. Actually it was weirdly hot. The Finnish summer is always kind of a wild card. You never know what kind of weather it's gonna be next week. One day you have +25 Celsius , the next +15. Lately the weather has been super rainy, cold and kind of depressing. It was actually snowing last week in Finland. Snow in the middle of June. Welcome to Finland. (Good thing that I'm currently in the warmth of Normandy mwahahaa!) 

JSK: Haenuli
Peignoir: Vintage
Shoes: ModCloth
Purse: TitinaStore
Belt: Vintage
Necklace: Cute Can Kill
Headdress: HairDoodleDo
Wig: Lockshop

I held a meetup in April, during the heatwave. BAD. CHOICE. I looked absolutely horrible and I was sweating like a pig :'D. No more lolita meetups when it's +25. That was too hot for me at least. For this post I really wanted to put together an outfit that you could maybe survive in the heat. I think that peignoirs might be kind of the next "thing" in lolita. You can find vintage peignoirs for example from eBay. Mixing cult party-kei with lolita is really interesting and inspiring. Also peignoirs are great way to cover your shoulders and still feel the breeze in your armpits. I did add a wig to the outfit, which really isn't the best idea when its really hot. In a worst case scenario you can end up having a heat stroke while wearing a wig. But yeah let's say that this coordinate is for "bearable hot weather". :D

That's it for now! Thank you for reading, please leave a comment below and check out my Tumblr and Facebook page! I also made a video after I visited Helsinki Sea Life so check it out!


  1. I really like the mermaid theme, and I actually own the flat version of those shoes from Modcloth. ^^

    The meetup that my comm is having tomorrow is going to be in 90 F (32 C) weather tomorrow. At least it'll be overcast. ;A;

    1. Holy moly! For me +25 ( 77 F) is the absolute limit of wearing lolita and even then it's really really uncomfortable. I start to feel uncomfortable in that temperature, even though I would be wearing normal clothes. I think that Finns in general don't tolerate heat very well. I hope you were able to have a great meetup anyway!

    2. We had a good time overall, but we tried to stay in air conditioning, hah. Alot of the girls in the Southern US actually carry fans in their purses all the time because of how awful the humidity gets and tend to wear lighter outfits.

    3. I meant, specifically the lolita girls. Hah, I don't see everyone breaking out fans all the time, most of the people around here just spend the summer in short shorts and basic tshirts.

    4. Haha, same here. Appropriate temperature to start wearing summer clothes in Finland is +15 (59F). :'DD. Fans are always a good idea!
