School Uniform

I hate to admit this but on school days, my outfits are mainly of the "jeans-and-T-shirt" variety. As a person interested in fashion, this is very frustrating since I feel like I should come up with better, more fashion-savvy combinations. What holds me back are the rushed early mornings when I have to get ready knowing I won't be returning home before the evening, and so I have to account for all of the variations in weather throughout the day - a rather scary thought.

This week while I was getting ready, I realized that the jeans I was wearing are one of the eco-friendly pieces I own - a hand-me-down (read: recycled) pair that is in constant rotation. Somehow, this thought made everything better and my lack of creativity didn't bother me as much anymore. After throwing a few bright colours and another eco-friendly item into the mix, I was ready to go. That is not to say that I will not keep trying to evolve my style though - that is something that I'm always striving for and hope to make small steps forward as I go along.


  1. i like so much what you post. feel free to check out mine and follow me if you really like.


  2. haha I'm the same. I tend to wear jeans + t-shirt+ cute scarf to uni as well, unless I wake up and feel like dressing up... which doesn't really happen cz I always oversleep and don't have time :P
    I really like the yellow jacket with the purple details of the scarf :D

  3. there are sooooo many ways you can make jeans interesting... or else they wouldn't be a staple wardrobe piece for pretty much forever!! you did great layering a jacket and bright scarf over your knit... layers are the perfect way to manage a long day of changing weather and still look chic <3shelby
