Valentine's Day Tea Party

Good evening, everyone!

Well well, long time, no blogging. To be honest I've been reflecting if I should give blogging up all together. Now that I write almost daily in my job I find it harder to find energy for blogging. I don't have as much time and energy to wear lolita as I'd like, either.

On the other hand I've had this blog so long that I'm not quite ready to give up on it yet. And neither am I ready to give up lolita fashion. So now I'm thinking that maybe I should still keep blogging, even if it's less frequent, and try to invest in the quality of photos I share here, using a proper camera whenever it's possible. There will surely still be occasional phone shots, as I most certainly will not carry my camera with me all the time in the future either.

So, dear lords and ladies, please bear with me - I'm not dead, I'm just busy with my work and studies. If you want more frequent updates on what I'm up to, feel free to follow me on Instagram - I update it more often. My current account is @caranette.

And the actual topic of this post is a Valentine's day tea party that Mimi hosted, or more precisely my outfit for it. The party was just fabulous. Mimi and her husband had prepared blini with several delicious toppings and chocolate cake with vanilla cream. Everything was served with Russian style samovar tea which was delicious, too. Of course it was also nice to see my frilly girls after a long time, and be able to wear frills myself. :3

My outfit for the day was simple and comfy. I liked this one a lot.

I also take this opportunity to show some of my latest purchases; a Laura Ashley coat and a Michael Kors purse. I bought these keeping both my everyday style and my lolita style in mind, and in my opinion they go very well with both.
