Friday Fancies : Sitting Pretty

Growing up, I went to an all girls, catholic high school.
We wore a uniform that included a plaid kilt in colors similar to the one pictured.
I remember one day, I was on the subway heading downtown, headphones in. I had my standard uniform on...kilt, white button down, knee socks, a jacket.
A rather attractive woman turned to me, smiled and said "I love that you're wearing a jean jacket with your uniform. So rebellious".
And so, my love affair with plaid and denim began.
Pretty in Plaid

I still love the idea of taking something pretty and making it edgy. 
I added the crinoline (found via etsy here) underneath this simple plaid skirt. Add a lace-up ankle boot, slip on some classic wayfarers and a hint of red lipstick.
Rebel ready.

I never had to wear uniform but when hobby and I lived in the south almos ALL the shocks were private catholic so I woul see herds of little school girls in their Little uniforms!!! Of course I thought they were cute But I never had to wear it. I'm sure I would have hated it had I ha to wear it! Xoxoxoxo H

  4. Love those booties with the classic plaid. And since I'm in the middle of 7 days of chambray, this outfit is right up my alley.:) My daughter wears a uniform, and it's definitely hard to "edge it up" though she'd certainly love to!!
