Pleated Skirt: Red Cross Store/second hand
Over-The-knee Socks: BikBok
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
So excuse my crazy colorblocking but I got carried away. School is, as I go on and on about, right around the corner and it seems that each year I just get so inspired to bring out my knee socks and my pleated skirts. And I am sort of still bummed that we don't get to wear school uniforms in Sweden -
in fact, when me and my friends were in 4th grade, we even tried to protest against the fact that we didn't have school uniforms, yes we were very involved in school politics (and that might have also been an early showing of my fashion self), the teachers said that we could "make our own school uniform", something we were very disappointed with because we kind of had that "all or nothing attitude", we wanted it to be mandatory to dress in a certain way. Haha!
Little did I know then, because here I am, doing exactly that: making my own school uniform in the colors of autumn. The colors of this autumn even, adding some klein blue to mix it up with the more typical warm colors of autumn leaves.
