Dreamy Thursday : Mori Girls


Happy Dreamy Thursday and Happy March.
I can feel that Spring energy starting up.
So looking forward to Spring.

This Dreamy Thursday is on Mori Girls style.
The Mori Girl Style comes from Japan. If you
look at the clothes, for me they harken back
to fairy tales, victorian era and vintage
romantic style. Mori comes from the Japanese word "Forest".
Literally it means Girl from The Forest.

It's all about layering clothes with soft
and earthy colors including colors of whites, greens
browns and blues. Using aprons, ribbons, flowers, shawls,
hats, scarves,lace, granny boots and slippers. Your
makeup natural and easy.

What caught my eye when I first saw it, it
reminded me of my love of long flowing skirts
and romantic looking fashion. When I look
at Mori Girl style I think of the lovely
clothes from Magnolia Pearl and of Tasha Tudor.

Mori Girls is a life choice for some. With technology
speeding along, sometimes you want to get
back to simpler things. Where you create with
your hands, read from an actual book and
spend time out in nature. For more inspiration,
check out morigirl.blogspot.com

If you want to adapt a Mori Girl look
for yourself. Remember layers, skirts and
anything that makes you feel romantic.
I'm sure there is a bit of a Mori Girl in
everywoman. BTW, all these lovely pictures
I found online.

If you like to write a guest post here at Swan of Dreamers
on what makes you feel Dreamy.Please e-mail me at

It can be on any topic. I love to have you here.
Wishing you a Mori Girl Dreamy Thursday.
