Preppy Academy & Giveaway | What I Wore

Prep School Dropout

Happy Wednesday! I took a little break from the blog because it was my birthday yesterday. I do have a fun post coming up on that but now here is an outfit I wore to pre-birthday shopping and doing a few errands before my special day. I am obsessed with the skirt and feel like it is gong to be perfect for all seasons. You can see how I styled it with an all blue look and more dressed up here. I made it more casual this time around but I noticed it has school uniform vibes from it. I had a uniform for a few years when I went to a private school in the US in elementary but I transferred to public school for high school. When I moved to Manila they are big uniform fans so I had to wear one again and I wore one 4 out of 5 days in college. I guess having a uniform is a good and bad thing. I didn’t mind it but I couldn’t dress up for my blog back then because I wanted to be comfy in class and they had strict dress code since it was a catholic school making a skirt like this inappropriate but all my skirt lengths are mostly like this and I can’t help it. As of now I don’t miss uniforms but it did remind me of my school days with this outfit. So here are a few details about it and read till the end for a special birthday giveaway from me to you!

For my outfit I went with a plain white tee with lace detailed sleeves. The navy stripe skirt which gives me Blair Waldorf style and pretty much so does the whole outfit minus her signature headband which I have my bow of course. My navy stripe bag is back with grey ballet flats to finish it off. My accessories I have a pair of tortoise sunglasses which are my go to and a matching navy bow. Last is my fave earrings and bracelets I am wearing with most of my outfits and is on my latest fashion finds here. That completes my uniform/Blair Waldorf-esqe outfit. Now I just have to return to a prep school and find a Chuck Bass of my own.

    Cute outfit! I really like that skirt. I'm a big fan of skirts and dresses, but sometimes it's difficult to find things that fit proper! :)
