Shirt-Dress, 4 of 5

I heart jumpers.  Always have.  Even when my parents put me in private school for 6th grade and I was devastated that I would have to wear a uniform, it soon became a non-issue because I loved the plaid jumper so much.  My mom agreed to hem it significantly...because she's cool like that.  It really was quite cute.  I stood out because those were the days when the girls in my church social circle absolutely did NOT wear short skirts...religion n' all....


Anyhoo...this red frock is more of a dress than a jumper, but the way I'm wearing it here with the oxford collar brings me back to my jumper/uniform days.  Good times, good times.

My husband was so cute, came up to me and said, "your other dress is showing".  Kind of discreet like it was my slip or something.  I said, "I know, I left it that way on purpose".  I can see how that might be confusing...
