School Uniforms

At the homeschool workshops (I often refer to it as a co-op, although it's truly not one) I attend every Friday, we are required to wear a polo in a certain color with the school's logo embroidered over the heart.  Now, when I first started attending this co-op, we had to wear a navy blue or light blue polo, and khakis, dress pants, or skirts to the knee or longer.  Now the rules are slightly less restrictive.  Polos can be one of a giant selection of colors (I have navy blue and light gray), we can wear jeans, and slightly shorter skirts.  However, all choices have to be appropriate and God-honoring.  I'm cool with that.  But what's hard is livening up a polo that is either too big or too small for me (I'm a very unique size, apparently).

So today I had an outfit idea.  And here it is.


I'm sporting the light gray polo, a hounds-tooth skirt, black leggings (to make the skirt appropriate for my co-op), a dark gray blazer (because the polo is too baggy), and a blue-and-gold flower necklace my friend gave me for my birthday (hi, Hannah!).  So there you have it-me trying my best to liven up my school uniform.  I feel very preppy and/or business-appropriate today.

    1. Thank you! It's definitely dark gray, but the lighting in my room can be deceiving quite often. :)

    3. It's hard to choose just one. Right now my ultimate fave is All Too Well, but I also love Last Kiss, Sad Beautiful Tragic, Stay Stay Stay, Jump Then Fall, Come Back... Be Here, and The Moment I Knew. I love a lot of them, though! Even more than just the ones I listed.

    4. You like everything! You've heard "Never Grow Up" haven't you? It's definitely not a well known song, but it's so sweet!

    5. Pretty much! I used to not like "White Horse," but I'm going through a phase where I like it again, lol. And, yes, I've heard "Never Grow Up." It's so sweet. :)
