It's that time of year when everyone is posting their back to school wish lists.
My school has a uniform, with which I have a love, hate relationship. I hate not being able to wear whatever I want, but on the other hand knowing exactly what I am going to wear in the morning is a big time saver. It also makes the days when you can wear your street clothes a lot more fun. Many people put more effort into those outfits, since they can't wear them all the time. My school is very strict on what we can and can't wear with our uniforms. The only way that we can spice up our uniforms is with accessories, and even some of those are limited. So I decided to do a post of different accessories that I can wear with my uniform and some of which I wouldn't mind getting. I got my inspiration from Gossip Girl, so you will see a mix of Blair, Serena, and Jenny inspired pieces. I will do a non-uniform wish list soon. The post is pretty long, however there are a lot of pictures.
The basic pieces of my uniform are a kilt, white button down shirt, a tie, and either a sweater or a blazer.
We are allowed to wear shirts that aren't from the school here are a few that I found:
From American Eagle:
I really like this one; it has three-quarter length selves. It still keeps you warm and it looks good with a vest.
From Forever 21:
Another 3/4 length . I really like the detail on the sleeves, with the buttons.
We have to wear black shoes, and I personally like them with a small heel or no heel at all, since I have to wear them all day long.
I really like these Coach shoes, they are extremely cute, and I love the buckle.
From Forever 21:
These are cute, if you would like something higher.
From Steve Madden:
I love the button and the slight heel. I am thinking of getting these ones for my school shoes.
I really like these ones as well. I love the crisscross straps. They are different from the other flats that I have seen at Aldo.These a fairly simple and cute.
I really like the slight heel in these as well, and also the knot detail at the front.
I personally love the inside pattern of the shoe.
Serena is well known for wearing boots. While we aren't allowed to wear boots during school hours we can wear them to and from school.
I really like the colour and the buckle detail on this boot. The heel on this boot is the perfect height. It is low enough that it would be comfortable for a long period of time, yet high enough so you feel like you are wearing heels.
I really like this suede boot.
It looks more like a riding boot, and reminds me of the boots Serena wore in the first episode.
Jenny tends to wear a lot of hats. Here are some cute ones that I found:
While all the character's wear headbands, Blair is the best known for them. Here are some Blair inspired headbands that I found:
I love the leopard print and the bow The three hearts are so simple and cute
We wear either knee-highs or tights with our kilt. Here are some of my favourites:
From Forever 21:
I really love the texture on these tights, its adds more to your uniform with very little effort.
From American Apparel:
I love this colour!
From Urban Outfiters:
I love the plaid.
The Girls from Gossip Girl tend to wear bright interesting and eye poping coats.
From BB Dakota:
I love the sleeves on this jacket
This is a great little leather bomber. From Forever 21:
I think that this coat looks the most like the one Serena is wearing above.
I tend to not wear a lot of jewerlly at school, as it gets in the way. I do like to wear bracletes becuase they are easy to put on and they can be seen the best when I wear my uniform. We are not allowed to wear huge necklaces so bracletes are the best way to go. Here are some of my favourites:
From Tiffany's and Co:
I really want a charm braclete from Tiffany's.
From Urban Outfiters:I love the feather design
These are two bangles. I really like how they look together, but they can also be worn apart.
The Cast of Gossip Girl looking good in their uniforms:
So I didn't really mean for this post to be so much about Gossip Girl, but I really love how they wear their uniforms. Although it seems fitting what with Season One coming out on DVD today.
I hope that you enjoyed the post and found it useful/helpful. Even if you don't wear a uniform I hope that you took something from it.
Have a great week,
