The First Day of School

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 6:30 pm

The kids all went back to school today *sigh* by Junior High it was always THE WORST day of the year.  Elementary, now that was the time that school was something to look forward to and be excited about.  I know this was a first day of school, my dad can tell you if this was Grade One, I think it was. 🙂  I loved that Pound Puppies Duffel Bag, it had a lunchbox section in it too!

Today was like a ‘back to school’ day for me as my boss came back from her summer holidays.  I did put a lil extra effort in getting ready and showed up early.  Only in hindsight today did I realize I dress like my 6 year old self, 20 years later and my style looks similar!!  Knee socks, flats and cardigans. 🙂

On another note, wearing yellow always makes me feel cheery.  Walking home was full of (to quote Kater) Things of Happiness.  An older lady makes her poddle spin in circles on its hind legs for treats, sneakers lining a windowsill (I took a pic) and a girl in a yellow nylon bomber jacket.  To top it off I got an outfit compliment on my way into the building.  Seriously should wear yellow everyday, it’s so energizing!

All items previously shown: Daisy sweater, Ebay. Cable Knit Knee Socks, The Bay. Thrifted electric yellow sweater, ankle boots, silk skirt, bow purse and bracelet.

    – I’d say this was your second year…for your first day ever, I think you wore the grey dress with the ruler & school supplies pattern – wasn’t your hair REALLY short too?
