school guuurls

I've never been a fan of my school uniform, though many a times I have found myself styling a similar look in my everyday clothes. My uniform consists or a terribly shaped maroon pleated kilt. Let me stress kilt because skirts are far prettier. Awhite shirt, navy V neck jumper and huge, clumpy, disgusting, paint covered blazer. (I always forgot to take it off in art and I'm very 'expressive' in such a lesson as my tutor would say)
Some of my favourite 'go to' outfits are pleated skirts, white shirts and/or blazers and jumpers. Today was one of these days.
After being gifted some over the knee, cream socks yesterday. I obviously had to wear them straight away. My initial thoughts where Meadham Kirchhoff esque with a doll like dress but it was far to cold for any of my dresses today. So I went to my safe outfit, 'pleat skirt plus white shirt'.

Already sensing the school girl in me. Again I mention the sheer cold that was endured today. Perfectly blue skies but actual frost on the ground. The jumper went on next, navy and black (school uniform replica? I think I'm set in my ways after 9 years at this school) I did put on black loafers but thought it was a bit prim and polished for me so on went the bottle green doc martens. I felt like I'd been subconsciously missing school after 5 days of half term. Truth is I've just taken inspiration from cool school girls.

I've always fancied being a Lisbon. An innocent seeming school girl, mysterious and total bad ass. Truth be told I did feel like a serious RIOT GRRRL in my boots today. So noisy and clumpy, I just wanted to scream and stamp along to the Sex Pistols.

Obviously the over the knee socks were a homage to Clueless!

And of course the collar!

and though we all bitch and moan about Tavi, I even got inspiration from her!
