WhatLauraWore: Back To School… Preppy Style

Morning All

Hope you’re all up bright and early for work like I am.  Although I love my job, I’m genuinely looking forward to the Royal Wedding, mainly because I’m getting a day off work which means I have a three day weekend to look forward to. Hello relaxation!  I was at work ALL Easter so this three day weekend (yes, I’m saying it again!) is LONG awaited!

We often have themed days at work and yesterday the theme was Back To School.  Whilst I love a theme, I really don’t like the idea of spending money on a fancy dress outfit ill wear once and never again, before I even get to work… it kind of defeats the object of going to work to earn money in the first place!  That said, I did still want to make an effort.  I had a look around in my wardrobe and was genuinely surprised to see that I don’t own a white shirt or a blazer and I don’t even have my school tie anymore, not that I could find anyway.  So instead, I went for a preppy non-uniform day kind of look, inspired by how I see some kids dress in American schools.
