You know what I was met with? Boos.
The other parents at the meeting BOOED ME. They booed a sixthgrader. These parents loved the idea of a uniform; now, they wouldn't have to do so much laundry, and their kids would always "fit in". Blah.
Anywho, I try to work around the uniform as best as I can. Technically, we're not supposed to wear sweatpants, leggings, sweaters, or sweatshirts but everyone does it anyway because communication is a huge problem in my school. In this outfit, my uniform shirt is covered by a sweater from the older lady section of JC Penney (no shame!). The skirt is from Forever 21 (a little black pleated number), the stocking and socks from H&M. The Marc Jacob boots were my Christmas splurge from 2 years ago; they're just nice heeled black combat boots that aren't too literal.
My favorite piece of the outfit is the headscarf. Really it's just a traditional Portuguese headscarf that I folded into a triangle and rolled up, then tied around my head and tucked the ends in. I really love the mix of the cobalt blue with the soft maroon and gold designs.
