Back to School.

I have this long-running jealousy of schoolkids. Which, out of context, sounds extremely weird. But no, don't worry - I'm totally over my uni days, when I lived opposite a school and used to stare enviously at the happy kids across the street whilst I was trying to write an essay about Chekhov on two hours sleep. Lucky little buggers.

Nope, these days, the jealousy I have is their clothes. Those cute little blue gingham summer frocks? I would wear the heck out of that these days, if they only sold them in my size. And I've never been able to find a pleated skirt as flattering as the little navy number I wore in secondary school. This has led me to the Back to School section on the New Look website, grumpily looking at all the adorable separates that I would wear in an instant, if I just had the waist of a 14 year old. I swear clothes weren't this adorable when I was at school!



  1. i confess: i bought a child's gingham dress but the cheap fabric made my skin crawl so i returned it. woe.

  2. Oooh I love the pleated skirt.

    My school never had a uniform so I've ALWAYS had schoolgirl jealousy. Cute little skirts and blouses with jumpers and flats are one of my absolute fave outfits! :D xx

  3. I love these looks, pleated skirts are my favorite paired with cardigan were a staple in my wardrobe when I was younger and I think I'm going to start wearing it again.



Comments make my day. :) I love you.
