Hey cutie! How are you? Is it sad that I’m actually excited to share this post with you? Ever since my last post I have fully thrown myself into old-school himekaji so here are a few of my recent himekaji coords for Autumn (or Fall, if you’re from America)! By the way, most of these pictures were taken over the past month or so (before our second lockdown).
Florals? In Autumn?
This is one of my newest himekaji purchases! I really want to wear this dress again for when I go to afternoon tea because I absolutely love it! To make it a little more suitable for colder weather I just layered a long sleeved top underneath, and it worked a charm. And of course, I wore my trusty thermal tights which kept me SUPER warm and the best thing is that you can’t really tell that I’m wearing them tehe.

This is one of my favourite outfits of all time that I wore when I went for afternoon tea with my friends! Who knew it would be the last time I’d have one in 2020. Gosh, I really hope I can go for an afternoon tea soon… Or maybe I could make my own one? The tulle skirt instantly creates that lovely princess appearance which is absolutely perfect for himekaji!

You don’t really see a lot of examples of dark colours in himekaji, but it has to be one of my favourite things about Autumn! I’d love to incorporate more darker reds and browns in my future himekaji coords. This was my outfit for when I went pumpkin picking with my girls Amy and Lauren, and I added a hint of spookiness with this Mimic face mask!

Have I mentioned how much I loved Autumn? Summer used to be my favourite season but it has been slowly switching to Autumn over the years. I just love all of the pretty colours and the fact that I could wear my cosy jumpers again! I can already tell that I’m going to be wearing this hoodie A LOT over the next few months because it is one of the coziest things I’ve ever worn.

I wore this outfit on our trip to Edinburgh (which you can watch very soon, it’ll be posted on my YouTube channel on Thursday!) and I looove it. I don’t see many himekaji coords with jeans and this makes me want to experiment more with that!

Ooh La La!
You’re probably bored of this outfit but this is one of my favourite himekaji coords! I felt so princess-y and kind of… French? Maybe it’s because of the beret!

Old School Himekaji
Another outfit with this Liz Lisa sweater! I wore this outfit during our trip to Edinburgh where we spent the day walking around the National Museum of Scotland and to the kitty cafe. I’m so glad that I wore a lot of layers for this because it was super cold and rainy that day (yes, I was wearing thermal leggings, a pair of tights, AND a pair of over-the-knee socks!)

Ojikawa! Cute Grandpa!
I wore this on the first weekend of our second lockdown… I guess I dress up now to go food shopping tehe. I was very much inspired by the 2011 trend featured in Popsister (or was it Popteen?) Called Ojikawa and Obakawa – which basically translates to “cute grandpa” and “cute grandma”! Everything I’m wearing is offbrand which is quite refreshing. Just shows it is possible to do himekaji without Liz Lisa!

Cute and Cosy
The weather had been super dark, gloomy, and overall miserable, so I decided to go for something a bit more cute and cosy! Unfortunately the sweater was a bit too long and kept covering up my skirt… Making it look like I had no bottoms haha. I did get quite a few stares when we went out food shopping! But I felt super cute.

And those are my favourite himekaji coords for Autumn! I will probably add more outfits to this post in future as my new himekaji journey has just begun!
Which one was your favourite Autumn himekaji coord?
