What I Wore | 1950s/60s College Girl Inspired (Wool Plaid Skirt)

- What I Wearing - 

Plaid Wool Skirt - Second-hand
White Ruffle Blouse - Kohl's
Black Boyfriend Blazer - J.C. Penny
Cream Tights - Kohl's
Black Pumps - Famous Footwear
Key Watch Necklace - Maurices
Polka-dot Headband - Claire's
Pearl Earrings - Gift

Today's outfit is very private school uniform - which I love. Odd I know. But I love school uniforms! Growing up I also looked forward to wearing my "school uniform" clothing. No, we didn't have a uniform for school (home-schooled K-12). We just bought the school uniform jumpers, skirts, blouses, cardigans each fall for our everyday/Sunday wear. I LOVED it! =) Anyone else love school uniforms? 

Another way you could look at my outfit, is that it looks late 1950s/ early 60s college girl inspired.  Any of you own Sears Everyday Fashions: 1950s? Near the end of the book you will find outfits just like this one. 

I better get going. I have a dining room to decorate and a present to wrap, for today is my Mom's birthday. :) 


Don't forget to take a guess on the movie quote quiz. Here are some hints. 1, 2, 5, 6 - the actors have been talked about on this and my movie blog and are from the 30s/40s. 9 - One of the people is really famous, think 1930s. 16 & 17 - some people may consider these boy type movies. One is from the 50s the other 2000s.  =)


  1. I love plad too!! I also LOVE the key watch necklace! Very pretty!!


  2. I love your skirt! I have two plaid skirts I wear a lot this time of year, they're so fun!

  3. Just as Caroline said I have two wool plaid skirts I wear often this time of year. I posted pictures of one on my blog recently. I will have to wear mine tomorrow. Pictures of my outfit for today coming soon. I love yours! I hated my school uniform, but this is beautiful. They were ugly when I was in private school.

    In Christ,

  4. I love plaid too! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love that look! And I love the Sears books, too- I have the 40's, but not the 50's. :(

    I was wondering... do you find it difficult to wear heels all day? I love the way they look, but I think it would be impossible for me due to the amount of stair-running and running around in general that I do. When I got a pair of heeled boots, the first thing I did was fall down the stairs.

  6. Anna - At first I did. My ankles would keep twisting and I couldn't walk straight. But knowing that ladies wore heels all the time from the Renaissance to about the 70s/80s. That I could do it too. :) Now, I have no problems wearing heels. Just keep trying. As now I can run like normal in my heels.

  7. I love this outfit!!!!!!!! it is really gorgeous. Seriously sincerely!!!

    also by the way, I linked you off of :)
