The new year is almost here and my week has been abuzz with reflections and resolutions. I’ll get to my reflections in another post but for my resolution this year, I wanted to try something a little different. I’d always wanted to try a daily challenge but couldn’t find one that spoke to me so naturally I had to make my own. And thus, the 365 Lifestyle Lolita Challenge was born!
The list is filled with simple skills to learn, small adventures, little home improvements, and many other challenges designed to make every day a treat. My goals were to create daily challenges that one would look forward to, could be readily accomplished in 5 minutes or less, practical enough to carry out on any given day, and, of course, would fit in with a lolita lifestyle. But I’m sure you must be thinking…
How does one define a lolita lifestyle? Some define a “lifestyle lolita” as one who dresses in lolita daily. I prefer the original interpretation- one who lives their life inspired by the aesthetic of the fashion. At the very least most agree that a lifestyle lolita requires a lolita wardrobe. Among the values I’ve interpreted while writing the challenges are a love of nostalgia, a desire to better one’s self, and an appetite for a charming little adventure.
What will you need for this challenge? The items needed for this challenge consist of what you should already own, but to give you an idea:
- Somewhere to write a few prompts- whether it’s a diary, a social media post, or in the sand.
- Something to photograph with.
- Access to reading materials.
How can I follow along? If you’d like to participate, head over to Lace a la Mode’s Facebook page! The challenge of the day will always post there and I encourage you to share your experience with it. To ensure you don’t miss a beat, go into the notification settings for the page and turn on new statuses or photos.
If you’d rather watch from the sidelines there will be a monthly roundup post where I share my own experiences as well as a few stand-outs from others (with permission of course). Be sure to use the tags #365LifestyleLolitaChallenge or #365LLC if you’d like to share, I’ll be watching them!
