Check out all the photos of this outfit here – you get to meet my new grasshopper Jarvis and everything!

I don’t start school until tomorrow, but apparently that didn’t stop me from trying to look like I was on my way to class!

Though I’m not going to lie – when I actually go to school tomorrow, I will most likely wear something way more subtle. Definitely no high heels. The reason is very simple: people in general tend not to like me, especially in educational situations, and in my experience they like me even less if I dress up. No, I’m not telling you this so that you’ll feel sorry for me and tell me that you would like me if you were in my class. Trust me, you wouldn’t. At least not at first. Maybe when you got to know me and realized I’m not all about being loud and opinionated and unable to shut up, but that I’m actually quite the nice person underneath (or maybe my friends just have bad taste when it comes to people!).

This is not a huge problem for me, I’m used to it, but that doesn’t mean I’m not trying to change it. Of course I want people to like me! As long as I can keep being myself. (Rather hated for who you are than loved for who you’re not, and so on.) So I’ll really, really try not to be obnoxious and annoying – I don’t want to embarrass my friend and now classmate Anna – and I’m not going to be that weird girl who showed up the first day looking like she was going to a party (or like she thought she was in an episode of Gossip Girl). Nope. Tomorrow is going to be a jeans-sweater-boots day. And I think what will happen is that we say “here” when our names are called, listen to an introduction and then go home. Hopefully I won’t be able to mess that up. :)

This is so cute! I love your glasses. You're right, you look like you're ready to walk into the 3rd grade..... but in a grown-up, very good way.

Try being the oldest of six girls being loud and opinionated is the only way to be heard above the din already progressing in my household. My boyfriend also tells me frequently that I don't have to yell as he is right next to me, I guess my normal speaking voice is at a higher decibel than most :) wear what you like as people often find any reason to hate the "pretty girl" :(

I go all out to school I'd wear it in a second. a lot of people may not like it but i really dont care haha :) Wear what you want and eventually people just get used to the fact that youre going to look fab everyday and they will like you haha :)

The over the knee socks set this outfit off - it's sexy without being trashy in a school girl way.
