Lolita Wine Tasting Vacation ♡ Day 1

A bunch of my friends and I had been talking about doing a weekend trip to Yakima, Washington for wine tasting, and we made it happen! A big group of us went up together, and for our tasting tour we visited four wineries in a limo.

To start off, here's what I wore:

Headbow: Angelic Pretty
Blouse: Infanta
Jumperskirt: Angelic Pretty
Socks: Baby The Stars Shine Bright
Shoes: Secret Shop
Pins: Rosehound Apparel, Fat Junkie, Nikki Lipstick, Japan LA
Other Accessories: AP, offbrand, handmade

The first winery we went to was J. Bell Cellars.

They had a super cute dog that came out to greet us! Their winery also had a lovely seating area outside where I took my outfit picture above.

The second winery had a lovely view of their grapes growing! My friends said these photos reminded them of Kamikaze Girls.

The third winery was Treveri Cellars, which specializes in sparkling wines. I love drinks with carbonation, so this one was my favorite!

They also served food and had specialty cocktails made with their wine, so we got to relax and fill our stomachs. 

I'm so regretting not getting one of these bottles! Their Riesling my favorite from the entire tour! By this point in the tour I was getting drunk lol.

Our last winery had a beautiful garden that was seated up on a hill and overlooked farms and fields.

After taking a lot of pictures in the flowers, we headed home.

Here's a pic of our classy limo~

I know some of my friends have had "lolita vacations" where a everyone stays in a house together while on a trip, but this was the first time. It was fun to see everyone getting ready, helping each other zip up dresses and tie waistbows.

The next day we had a meetup with some of the Yakima lolita community. That'll be my next blog post!

Have you ever gone a vacation before with lolita friends, or done a vacation for a lolita-specific event? Let me know in the comments! I want to hear your stories!


Overgrown Path

I've always had a penchant for areas overgrown with nature. In elementary school my friends and I found a big oak tree by the playground with lots of overgrown bushes and shrubs, and we would pretend it was our forest cottage. I love the whimsical feel of areas like that, where I can pretend I'm an elegant forest fairy.

Luckily, the area I live in now has plenty of sidewalks that have become overgrown with nature. It's always fun to take pictures around it. I took pictures in a similar area when I borrowed Danielle's Glass Bottle of Tears set.

My hair is finally getting long enough to put up. It was fun doing big puffball hair!

That same day, Hilary came down from Seattle to visit us and Laura and I dressed her up in lolita. 

Dressing up people in lolita is so fun, especially when they've never worn the style before!

Next weekend is summer International Lolita Day. We're running a big sold-out event in Portland, it's really exciting but also scary! I'm crafting like crazy this week!
