Back to school, ring the bell.
Again with the leaves, I know. I can't get enough.
Obviously I'm not in school anymore, but if I were I could imagine walking to an early morning Shakespeare class in this outfit. (I actually did have a Shakespeare class at eight a.m., and despite my love of Shakespeare I do not recommend studying him that early. So maybe this is a late-afternoon Shakespeare outfit.) A black hair bow would have been perfect with this but I'm out of black yarn.
The little velvet bow is my favorite thing about this top-- it makes me feel kind of buttoned-up and Victorian. I love anything that looks like a school uniform without crossing into creepy territory. The top was sent to me by Sophistix (along with my lovely '90s style dress) months ago and I've only just worn it on the blog! I feel so bad because it really is lovely, but I kept waiting to create the perfect outfit around it. I think Kater wrote once about the problem of saving outfits, and I'm so very guilty of that.
