Daily Lolita Highlight: Elfie78

The changing of the seasons makes people take pictures of the new surroundings. Whether it's new blooms in Spring, fiery leaves in Fall, or icy frost and snow in Winter it is nice to see. Now that the colder months are upon us we will be seeing lots of lovely Lolitas bundled up in coats, scarves, and gloves standing among the snow. I love winter. I think it is my favorite season. The snow, cold temperatures, holidays, and lots of baking and cooking cookies and stews make me happy. Also, hot cocoa. Yum.

I know it isn't quite jacket and gloves weather in these pictures but it is a celebration of the first snow for Elfie78. I have yet to see our first snow of the season and I know how fun it can be. I am looking forward to it very much. I love that she went with what would be a traditionally springy floral print and matched it with white accessories. I especially love the knit beret and the large Meta bag. You don't see very many larger Lolita bags. Her coord is a mixture of brands.....
OP: Victorian Maiden
Bag: Metamorphose
Berret: Accesorize
Boots: Bodyline

 In addition to the first snow of the season she posted a few pictures from a little bit before. I think the world I am looking for is darling. This coordinate that she put together and these pictures are just darling. The bright white paired with the dusty rose pink make a great match. I kind of wish it were mine. Her OP is Juliette & Justine, I don't have anything by them but I really like the print.
OP: Juliette & Justine
Parasol: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Hat, Mittens Cardigan : Offbrand (Seppälä)
Shoes: Bodyline

 Her style is very free and effortless. It isn't overly fussy which is hard to do with Lolita. It is such an eye catching style and there are so many details so often it can look over worked and forced. Elfie78 does not have this problem. The flowing hair, minimal make up, simple color schemes, and smart use of accessories are something to be desired.
You can see these pictures and many others on her blog Toes on Lace. It is a pretty little blog and is a joy to scroll through. I hope the cold weather is treating everyone well and inspires many pictures of you in your wintery finest. please, post all your amazing pictures on Daily Lolita.
