An Ode to My 2nd Grade Self

You know those outfits that make an impression on you? The ones that you keep reminiscing of over and over again and if you could you would just hug them, because they were just THAT amazing. The huggable outfit for me is that from my first day of 2nd grade, I’ll never forget it. I can see my second grade self now with my pink Gap skirt with small speckled flowers and a white ribbed gap shirt with a pink heart in the center (same shade of pink as the skirt don’t worry ;). Considering it was a chilly day in September I paired this ensemble with my white Keds, nude tights and white socks (like what?!). I think know the ankle socks with tights and Keds were a short-lived trend (thankfully) but I absolutely loved it.

I like to think of this outfit as the upgraded sequel to that one, the “Jackie Faces the Real World” look. Knee high socks are my new favorite accessory. Comfy and warm, they have the ability to take an average look to the next level. Sheer tights are my go to, I prefer them over opaque ones specifically because they give an outfit dimension and contrast. I dug into my spring wardrobe for this look considering the sleeveless white ZARA knit, EXPRESS shorts and denim shirt were all purchased this past spring. However, if you’re loving this look I’ve included some similar pieces in the links above.
