Growing up I always had a school uniform. First it was maroon plaid and a boys tie and vest, then it turned to polo shirts and more plaid (but this time the skirts were shorter/we rolled them.. a lot). I loved having a uniform because it meant I could roll out of bed thirty minutes before I needed to get to school and not have to worry about what to wear, but it also meant that I didn’t ever really have time to play around with different styles and learn what I really liked. And even though I am long past my days in plaid, I think I am still just a mishmash of different styles and eras that I love and want to emulate. And I don’t mind it :)
This look is so classic with the black and white and button down shirt (another staple of my uniform). I also love midi skirts. This one is actually a dress that I layered over, which is great for these spring days that I am ever so (not) subtly praying for.. And PS – this braid is such a showstopper.
