School Days

School days, School days…good old golden rule days…

As I pack away my beautiful summer dresses, sandals and outfits, I try to console myself with the knowledge that this isn’t goodbye but rather a brief parting.  I’m not quite ready to pack away all of these things and will be transitioning some of them thru fall until the leaves are all fallen from the trees and the cold winds blow through.  Sigh…

But then it’s tights season and I get REALLY happy about tights season!

Part of my fall transitioning is unpacking all of my sweaters and heavy blouses to pair with lighter skirts and slacks.  Today’s look was inspired by the “School Chic” trend that I’ve noticed is popping up.

I’m of the opinion that embroidered or monogrammed blazers and sweaters never go out of style and I do love the preppy school girl look (even if it’s been quite some time since I was a school girl).  I was terribly lucky to borrow this cute cardigan from my sweet daughter who is, currently, just that…a school girl.  Lucky girly wears a uniform complete with plaid skirt, embroidered blouse and penny loafers every day!

Even if you’re a school girl no longer, why not try an embroidered cardigan or blazer?  It adds a bit of formality to an outfit and adds a bit of sophistication and personalization as well!

Land’s End sells wonderful cardigans and blazers and also embroiders them with your favorite school’s logo or a monogram of your choosing.  The cardigan I’m wearing in the picture is from Land’s End so I can attest to their quality and comfort. Click here to check it out!  

Oh and just a note about the wonderful mural behind me in these shots.  The mural was painted by a local artist, Shannon Lake…with a link to his website:  http://shannonlakeprojects.com/murals.  He is a wonderful, local artist and I’m so lucky to see his work throughout some of the Southern towns I travel.
