the new uniform

I’m just as surprised as you that I’m wearing a plaid skirt this soon after graduating high school (10+ years). As a Catholic School girl, you dread “the uniform”. Or maybe you love it! It can be very hard to define your style when you wear the same thing as your classmates every day. Shoes were a big way to show your style, as well as different hairstyles. We’re serving up plaid two ways this week. Our first look is an easy red and black plaid mini from Old Navy, paired with a black ruffle pullover. We threw the leather jacket over for some edge. We had a fun pointed black velvet flat on but that was before we played on the beach. This is truly an easy look to pull off- here’s the style math broken down: plaid mini + boxy sweater + pointed flat = chic AF. Also of note: it was one of those awkward sunny/squinty days so every picture of my face is disastrous. Stay tuned for another plaid look coming up this week!

btw- how unreal is the view from Baker Beach?
