Who Said Plaid Isn't the Fad?

Spring Semester 2012 has officially begun for me! This is the last semester of my undergraduate career and am super EXCITED about graduation which is only 122 days away (yes, I've started a countdown already). Since I'm starting some of my graduate level classes this week I decided to show my professors the fabulous style I have. I spent so much time staring at my closet trying to decide what to wear and I finally stopped with this ensemble. What other items say geek chic more than plaid ANYTHING (don't worry, I'll wait).

About the Look:

I found the skirt on one of my vintage hunting adventures and fell in love with the mixed print. I ended up reconstructing it and creating this high-low hem version of the original high waist skirt. I paired the skirt with a simple denim button up (my new winter staple). The 10 to 15 mph winds made wearing my thick knit sweater tights necessary and my military inspired lace up booties made me a little taller as I strutted around campus. I topped my look off with my new favorite burgundy hat also shown in this post. As I stepped out the door this morning, I grabbed my gorgeous duster coat hoping that it would keep me warm, which it has (so far).

I love this outfit and it made starting another semester of school less draining.
Comment below and tell me about your favorite first day of school outfit ever...

You should think about getting a photobucket or Flickr account, if you upload your photo's through a server, they come out clearer and at a better quality. I look forward to seeing more of your posts :) Keep it up :)
