Back to Basics
Hello, hope that you had a restful weekend. The weather is getting colder, and picking outfits that are cute, inexpensive and warm can be difficult. Invest in a couple of coats, even if they are a little pricey because they never go out of fashion.
This piece reminds me of when I was younger and in primary school, I guess that would be elementary school in the US. We would wear pinafores. I so looked forward to the 1st day of school, with my newly pressed uniform, white socks and new sneakers. When I was putting this look together, I wanted to relive those years.
The dress has a wool feel and is super warm. The shirt was one of those that I had been watching forever because if was entirely too expensive. I saved up all my points and waited patiently for a sale. The collar has and the edges of the sleeve are of a different material, and in gold, adding just a little extra to the an otherwise white shirt.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read our blog. Merry Christmas!
