School Girl

Where do I start? Well, I guess I can start by saying… heeelllooo to all of you beautiful followers! I feel so bad that I have neglected my blog for a few months. I hate taking these long breaks and hope that this doesn’t happen again. I’m ready to get back to business and start sharing style tips and outfit ideas with you and sooo much more!  

I know that classes start at the end of August or beginning of September, which is when I wanted to share this outfit post, but just couldn’t find the time to do so. I styled an outfit inspired by the popular school girl look, which I think is very chic and fabulous. This is not your typical school girl look with the short plaid, pleated skirt and the knee high stockings. I wanted to do something a little different. I found this lovely skirt at forever 21 about two months ago. I wasn’t sure what I was going to wear it with, but after looking in my closet, I found a white, button down shirt with black buttons and black bow and thought it was the perfect match for the skirt. I also had these black and white spectator style shoes from Charlotte Russe that I purchased a while ago. After putting all the pieces together my school girl look was pretty much complete.

Since we are on this topic of school, I also want to recommend the book I am posing with in some of the photos below. It's called Real Solutions for Busy Moms by Kathy Ireland. I just started reading the book and so far I find it helpful. It's a great read for all you busy mothers out there. I know a few blogger moms and just young mothers who have full-time jobs, who work hard not just at work, but also try to maintain a strong family bond, some even go to school, etc.  Whatever the case may be, if you are a mother, you can all understand how difficult it is to keep up and take a little time to do what we enjoy (hence my lack of blog posts). I hate to make excuses, but it's reality. I want to talk more about the book, but I think I'll save the review for when I finally finish reading it.

Back to the outfit. I want to know what you think about this look. Would you wear this outfit? Do you think it’s too youthful? I want to hear your thoughts and opinions. 

I want to point out that today is my bloggerversary. Exactly one year ago, I published my first style blog post. I can't believe it's been a year already! I have a lot of work ahead of me for this next year. I have so much that I want to accomplish with my blog. It's been a great learning experience.Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for those who continue to follow it! Stay tuned... and remember to stay beautiful inside and out.
