Overgrown Schoolgirl



I may not wear this skirt again.
I was influenced by this picture.
I liked my version until my daughter came home from school.
"You are not going to the school ski meeting dressed like that tonight. You look like....like... A SCHOOLGIRL!"
And I slunk off to get changed.

  1. I actually think it is the blue wrap cardi that makes it look young and I don't know why but if I picture the outfit without it, it doesn't look schoolgirlish in my head!

  2. I think you look so cute in that outfit. But, teenagers, they definitely have their own opinions don't they...

  3. I agree...I like the skirt. Maybe a different cardigan. like your longline grey one would work well!

  4. I think the skirt would work teamed with more sophisticated pieces - shoes not boots, maybe a darker top. Plaid is popular but I think you have to be careful with it - unless you are going for the school or the lumberjack look.

  5. Aw, you shouldn't have let her talk you out of wearing this; it looks fantastic! I agree that a different cardigan would've lessened the schoolgirl vibe, so don't give up on the skirt just yet.

  6. Oh, but you look so cute in this outfit. And your legs look fabulous! I hope you'll give the skirt another chance.

  7. They just don't get the value of plaid at that age, never enough plaid I say. You look lovely.

  8. I agree with a number of other comments... the skirt is great, it's the cardigan that makes it look perhaps schoolgirl-ish.

  9. I'm agreeing with everyone else, as well -- I think the outfit looks terrific. I love the skirt and wrap together. I would wear it in a heartbeat -- and that's coming from a mother of three! :)

  10. I really think that was a compliment because you look so young (not that you're old of course!) Lovely colours, especially on you! Ciao. A.

  16. I think you look great! How fantastic to look like a schoolgirl - but wait, isn't that exactly what your daughter is Lol? I would look like a school marm in an outfit like that, I think you should wear it and enjoy it :-)

  17. lol! I think that your outfit is adorable! perhaps be a little more conservative to your daughter's school and de-accessorize (take off necklace, beret, and perhaps the wrap), maybe add a black cardi or something... and out of her school wear it like you have it now! I think it's really cute.

  18. Haha, you had me laughing at the post title as it reminds me of what my husband usually says when i wear certain skirts.
    I like the outfit and would not let go of that skirt - but, in order to please your daughter i would just change the top to a black turtleneck....
