School Girl

There are a lot of things I love about this outfit, and a few things I don't really like.

Negative first, of course!

a. The sweater's polyester. I do not like polyester. It's also a little thin...

b. The skirt is a little too short to look good with the top. It goes past the knee, but the cream and the beige are of pretty equal parts, and the skirt is A-line, so it creates an illusion (I hope!) of width, instead of height. I think my ideal skirt for this outfit, would be a pencil skirt of the same color, and about four inches longer.


a. My complexion is Autumn, and some of my best colors are brown and cream.

b. I love the retro style of the sweater-blouse-skirt combination and the shoes!

c. I got the whole outfit for only a few dollars!

Cream Sweater: Walmart (clearance!)
Brown Blouse: Catos (clearance!)
Beige Skirt: Goodwill, brand-new from Target,
with the original price tag still on. 1/9th of the price!
Brown Tights: Walmart
Shoes: Payless Shoes
Book: Their Yesterdays, by Harold Bell Wright


  1. Very cute! Both of these look like outfits I would wear. You gotta love a good denim skirt! I also HEART brown anything, so that jacket is wonderful. I agree with you that a pencil skirt would probably fit better with the second outfit, but I've had a lot of difficulty finding modest-fitting pencil skirts!

  2. I love the school girl look! You look lovely.

  3. Like the looks, cool you took of a picture of in what scene you could wear it in!!!

  4. Adorable outfit! I like how you used the old books as "props." :D I collect old books and find great pleasure from just browsing through them (of course I read them too!). ;D
