Outfit: Plaid Pleated Skirt, Blue Velvet Top, Jean Jacket, and Silver Shoes

Blue Velvet Crop Top with a Plaid Pleated Schoolgirl Skirt and Silver Oxford Shoes

Sometimes I draw inspiration from the school uniforms I never had to wear. And by that I mean I wear this thrifted plaid skirt that I'm pretty sure was part of a child's school uniform. It fits like it was made for me and I love it. This time I paired it with a crushed velvet crop top and my jean jacket. I added silver accessories for some extra flair. 

I really liked how this outfit turned out! It felt young, fun, and a little bit 90s-inspired. I always feel like I get bonus points when main parts of my outfit are thrifted too. 340 points for Hufflepuff! (Because, P.S. I'm a Hufflepuff according to Pottermore.)

Once again, I can't believe it's already Friday. I've hardly left the house the entire week. Just Tuesday to shop with store credit for a couple hours. Thus is the life of a job hunter. You guys, looking for a full time job is really bringing me down. I just want a job that's even remotely aligned with my career goals, pays me enough to live relatively comfortably, and that I don't despise going to each day. The job market is so ridiculously in favor of employers and they take advantage of it. It's frustrating. I could go on and on about it, but I won't. These are troubling times in the kingdom, my friends.

But anyway, I hope you have a good weekend. I'll probably be doing more of the same things I always do but maybe I'll take a break and do something strictly for fun. Happy Friday!

So gorgeous. Velvet is my absolute favourite material without a doubt. I also love tartan and have been looking for a skirt like that for ages.
