In Uniform


Plaid is one of those things that immediately say school to me. No, not because of Gossip Girl but because, well, ok! maybe. Apart from being a naturally preppy combination Plaid should be a girls best friend. There's something about plaid that gives a women a nice shape. Maybe it's because of the lines? But it hasn't been scientifically proven yet. I know many of you used to fold the top of skirt to make it shorter, yeah, I am talking to you. But those days should be way behind now. Despite me being 5''2 I love the length this skirt gives me. You know, the perfect length? Not too sexy nor too boring, just right. 
It is a bit intimidating to wear something like this, I get it. You don't want to feel like you are wearing a costume or trying too hard to look like a school girl. Minimal is key. Don't try, just wear it. 


Tela escosesa es una de esas cosas que dicen de inmediato escuela para mí. No, no a causa de Gossip Girl, sino porque, bueno, ok! tal vez. Hay algo en la tela escocesa que le da a una mujer una forma agradable. Tal vez sea por las líneas? Pero no ha sido científicamente probado todavía. Sé que muchas de ustedes doblaban la parte superior de la falda para que se vea más corta, sí, estoy hablando con usted. A pesar de que yo sea 5''2 me encanta la longitud de esta falda. Ya sabes, la longitud perfecta? No muy sexy ni muy aburrida, lo justo.
Es un poco intimidante para usar algo como esto, lo entiendo. Usted no quiere sentir que está usando un disfraz o tratando demasiado duro para parecerse a una chica de la escuela. Minimal es la clave. No intente, simplemente use.
