LBC: Hot weather lolita coordinates

I like to participate now and then in the Lolita Blog Carnival (LBC). The LBC is a group on Facebook with the goal to unite the lolita bloggers around the world. Every week the moderators of the group are intoroducing a new topic. It's free to participate for the members of the group. I don't feel always the urge to particpate, but sometimes a topic pops up which I like. This weeks topic is hot weather lolita coordinates. When I read the topic I had immadly some inspiration for coordinates. I don't like to wear lolita during hot days, but their are always a lot of meetings during the summer which I like to attend. In this way I came up with some not too hot coordinates during the years. I always follow some 'golden rules' during the summer. Those rules works pretty good for me. I always wear anckle socks, never wear a blouse, bus instead use a cardigan and use dresses of not too thick fabric in my coordinates. I'm also very found of light colorschemes during the summermonths, althought dark colors can be pretty too. I coordinate two light colored dresses and one dark colored dress for hot weather. I hope you will enjoy my coordinates!

The dress in this coordinates gives me a spring / summer feeling due to the color and print. I did my hair in an updo style to give my neck and back some air. The cardigan can be take off if it's too hot, but also protects my skin against sunburning. I use white anckle socks instead of the normal socks or tights. The parsol gives me shadow too cool down were every I am.I think this is my most ideal coordinate for hot weather! Coordinate run-down:
Hairclips: H&M
Cardigan: H&M
Dress: Pettit Angel (Dutch indie brand)
Parasol: Claire's
Socks: H&M
Shoes: Taobao

This coordinate is very simple, but still cute and elegant. I didn't use any blouse or cardigan, but instead go ride with bare shoulders (I'm sorry lolita gods!). The white color is very light, but I coordinate it with some color accents. Again I use the white anckle socks and did an updo hairstyle. No parosol this time since in my opinion this is a very casual lolita look.Coordinate run-down:
Hairthingie: Etsy Shop Cute Lou Couture
Dress: Innocent World
Necklace: Etsy Shop Cute Lou Couture
Socks: H&M
Shoes: Taobao

The third and last coordinate is a dark one. I use a cardigan, but with short sleeves and a cute-out partern. I use again the anckle socks, but this time in black. They're not visible in the photo, because that picture turned out not to be the best one.  I think this coordinate is not for + 30 celsius days, but can uses on any other hot weather.Coodinate run-down:
Hairbow: Primark
Cardigan: Primark
Dress: Mille Fleurs
Socks (not visible): Ebay
Shoes (not visible): Taobao
