Sweater: Thrift Skirt Thrift

My boyfriend said I look like a little school girl today, with my plaid skirt, cable knit sweater, and collared shirt. And I turned to him and said, "Thank You!". This is one of the reasons I enjoy fashion so much. Every day is a chance to create something new and different and transform into something new. Why not try something out of your comfort zone? The worst thing that could happen is that you get a dirty look or two and that's not so bad in the grand scheme of things. Style is something to have fun with, people should stop taking it so seriously!

Oh and I'm exited to say that I got 3rd place in the Mode Republic Spring for Lover's contest! I honestly forgot that I had entered it and was that much more ecstatic when they told me I had won.

What a darling outfit! Your skirt reminds me of the wool plaid skirts I wore to elementary school in the 80's. My mother loved dressing me in those!

Hillary said...

Exactly, I could never identify my style with anything specific.
And this outfit and the backdrop are so clashing but so beautiful together!

I love this outfit..although, I cannot believe that you can still wear sweaters at this time of year! I can barely walk outside it seems, it's so hot here!

Little school girl, indeed, but so much cooler. I love the color of your tights, especially paired with the navy. And you managed to not look stuffy in both cable knit AND plaid so I say well done, sister.

I love what you wrote about fashion and style and just having fun with it. What's with a few weird looks or remarks? It's just the clothes you're wearing. Whenever I pause when I'm about to wear something, I think: why not?

Also, you look super cute, I love the schoolgirl look. But girl, where are your eyes??
