In case you haven't noticed, I've been very obsessed with Peter Pan collars recently. I've also been coveting over the knee socks, oatmeal coloured tights and novelty hats. It appears that winter has sent my wardrobe on a trip down memory lane with school girl and Sunday best inspired outfits for the festive season. I've also been pairing it with my current favourite hat that's conveniently in a shape of a Christmas pudding... (more on that at a later date) I look like a Christmas elf and I couldn't be happier about it.
This wouldn't look out of place in Disneyland if Minnie Mouse decided to swap her red dress for a monochrome affair. To make it look slightly more grown up, a few changes had to be made. Straight hair has been replaced with unruly waves and the brown brogues throws in a splash of colour with an added bonus of androgyny. If you're not a fan of bare pins, I find that black over the knee socks helps to slim down the shape of the legs by emphasising the silhouette of them.
It's lovely to pay an ode to our childhood clothes from time to time. I admit to even looking through my old photo albums (from the toddler years) for some inspiration. I'm on a mission to recreate my mother's concoction of a white shirt and tartan pinafore but her idea of a matching set of pink velvet tracksuit can stay back in the 90s...
