Everyone loves a good throwback, right? While I haven’t been to catholic school past pre-k, my inspiration stemmed from the uniforms that everyone loves to pay fashion respects to.
Sometimes it’s the most simplistic outfit that puts the biggest smile on my face. In the dark dreary never ending days of winter, it seems like jeans, sweaters and boots are on replay. Once in awhile, if the temperatures rocket above 20 degrees, I’ll mix in something beyond the norm. Tights are a staple in the cold months, and I particularly love these tights that look like thigh highs, again paying homage to the catholic school girl socks. A simple google search of “tights that look like thigh highs” will bring you to some awesome pairs, but I really enjoy these tights in particular. They’re a little bit thicker than your average nylon, giving an extra layer in the cold.
In past posts, I’ve mentioned my insane love for thrift store shopping. The idea that you can find something with an original feel or that isn’t mainstream on the market, for cheap money is thrilling. That’s exactly the case with the plaid skirt featured in this post, $5 at Goodwill is a win.
So, you’ve got tights, and a skirt — for a cozy winter feel, pair the outfit with an oversized sweater and some ankle boots. For added comfort, an oversized scarf completes the look and combats the cold.
Now all you need is some pigtail braids and you can throw it way way back! Who doesn’t love a little Britney for a pick me up?
