I’ve mentioned this before but I’ll say it again: I love uniforms. Maybe it’s because I always went to public school and had the chance to wear the craziest outfits any time I wanted (and trust me, to my parent’s embarrassment, I took full advantage of that freedom). When I think back, I never had anything to rebel against. On the other hand, all my friends who had to wear uniforms are now completely clothes-crazy and their wardrobes make my closet look barren in comparison.
Over the years, I’ve amassed quite a collection of uniform-inspired looks. At the top of my list has always been variations of red and white stripes. Motel recently sent me the Karina Dress and I added my own belt, red bow and petticoat underneath to complete the look. Maybe If I’d worked at a candy shop a few decades back, this could have been my summer uniform. Hey, a girl can dream…
