Perfect Plaid Skirt

I'm never afraid to go with a school girl type look. To me, it's classic. Plus it's perfect for fall. I enjoy a good plaid skirt. I'm pretty sure the one I wore here was somebody's uniform skirt at one point.

I spotted this skirt at my favorite super cheap thrift store and bought it for a dollar. It fits absolutely perfectly too. I didn't need the length taken up or anything. Hooray for great thrift finds!

I tried to mix this up a little bit by pairing my striped top with the plaid skirt. I liked the mix of stripe patterns.

skirt: tracy evans; thrifted
top: forever 21
cardigan: forever 21
shoes: keds
headband: forever 21

I made a coffee cake this morning. It was delicious. I really like having time to make something tasty for breakfast. Usually that only happens on Sundays when I'm at school. I really wanted to make pumpkin scones, but I don't have all the ingredients. So sad. Maybe during finals week.

It's weird that the end of the semester is coming so fast. I have so much to do before then too. I can't really think about anything except Thanksgiving break, though. That week off will be much appreciated. Only one more week of class until then! [I should probably get some school work done next week then, I guess.]

Happy Sunday!

Only a dollar?! What a find :) You look lovely my dear. Oh pumpkin scones sound delicious, I'm often quite lazy in the kitchen, I need to do more baking! xx

This is definitely one of my favourite outfits you have posted. I adore school girl inspired looks too and the red cardigan looks so warm and comfortable. Love the two patterns together also.

This totally is the perfect plaid skirt! Plaid skirts are great because they can be worn so many different ways.

I adore coffee cake! Also, I love this outfit! You are adorable and mix stripes and plaid so well!

This outfit is so cute! Love the school-girl vibe, but it doesn't actually make you look like one, which is what always happens to me when I try and channel that 'look'. Just found your blog through (Busy Bee) Lauren's link and I am loving your use of colour so much. I thought I was pretty bold but I ain't got nothing on you!
