schoolgirl revisted

vintage peter pan collared shirt, thrifted uniform skirt, f21 pocket cardigan, target thigh high socks, vintage etienne aigner oxfords

I know I've post outfits similar to this on my Chictopia but I couldn't help attempting it again with the vintage girl's uniform shirt that I just acquired. I've been looking for a top with a peter pan collar for ages! Nevertheless, is it ironic that, after 10+ years of wearing uniforms in Catholic schools, I've reverted back to a style which I abhorred for so many years? My least favorite part was being told to tuck in my shirt and recieving detention from everyone's favorite nun upon "forgetting" to adhere to the rules every once in a while. I tend to miss uniforms sometimes when I'm tired of my wardrobe (which is 75% of the time). I only really had to worry about outfits on the weekends or free dress days since I had to wear the same uniform combination five times a week! Oh well, I'm still glad that's over.

(End nostalgic rant. High school was great but college is a million times better, in my honest opinion!)

Everyone hates school uniforms when they have to wear them, but i have to admit they do simplify things. Not having to worry about what i wore for over 5 years was cool!

How do you keep your over-the-knee socks from falling down? I wear them and as soon as I take a few steps, they are sliding down to my ankles :/

Sushi said...
