In my opinion, summer is the time to let loose and act a little crazy. When I say crazy, I don’t mean insane asylum psycho (don’t pull a Mona from Pretty Little Liars, please and thanks!), I’m talking about embracing your inner child. Some of us only have a year left before we must put on our big boy/girl shoes and step into the adult world. Now is prime time to get the kid out of you before you lose the chance forever. Go play at the playground, skip around town, blow bubbles or play dress up!
This Fashionista decided to dress up like a Harajuku girl whilst running errands to make the typically tedious task more exciting. She dons a playful polka-dot skirt and pairs it with a simple striped T-shirt. To encapsulate the cutesy Harajuku style, she teams lace ankle socks with some awesomely goofy blue creepers and reps a red bow headband.
If this Japanese style appeals to you, give it a go next time you go grocery shopping. Start off with a girly skirt, a staple for any Harajuku girl. Since the skirt is boldly patterned, opt for a simple T-shirt on top. To capture that child-like look of the Japanese style mavens, wear ankle socks with heels and clip a huge bow in your hair. If you want to make your errand-filled day even more exciting, upload some photos of you buying milk in your dress-up clothes. Don’t forget to whip out the peace sign and wink like a true Harajuku girl!
One Simple Change: For colder weather, wear these adorable cat tights underneath the ankle socks. Then, throw on this silly fur jacket. By adding instead of taking anything away from the outfit, you’ll keep your Harajuku look and stay warm—a win-win for sure!
