Sweet and Sophisticated

 So I am not quite sure how but I managed to dress like Blair Waldorf somehow.  After seeing these pictures I noticed how much my outfit compared to hers in the show Gossip Girl.  Whoops!  I guess we all have an inner Blair somewhere within us.
           
I have been seeing plaid skirts and dresses EVERYWHERE lately.  Personally, I really love the little school girl skater dresses  with plaid and white collars but I don’t know if I would feel 100% confident, as it is out of my comfort zone, so I decided to take baby steps and purchase a skirt instead.  Most of the plaid skirts I have seen are a nice thick material which will work wonders for the colder months ahead.  Tights look adorable and add an extra flare as well.  One of the best parts is that I can dress this skirt up or make it more relaxed.
                
This time around I dressed the look up and the shirt is what screams Miss. Waldorf to me.  It has a ruffled collar and a tie that can be put into a bow, which is something I have seen many of the girls on the show sport.  It is sophisticated, classy, and goes with so much because it is the simple color of black.  I like to have blouses like this in my wardrobe because they can dress an outfit up in one fell swoop. Even with a pair of some ripped black jeans and booties this shirt is a beauty!

So if you want to rep the Upper East Sider look just add some curls and pearls to this outfit, along with some class and whole lot of sass! Xoxo…

Blouse: Forever 21
Skirt: Forever 21
