Picture Day (See Jane Wear)

Urban Outfitters sweater, Gap skirt, Express tights, Enzo Angiolini boots, F21 necklace, Karen Walker sunglasses

The only thing I can think of when I see this outfit is that I wore something similar for my 1st grade pictures.  It was my favorite outfit that year: a thick, knit mustard cardigan with a black turtleneck underneath plus black culottes, tights and oxfords.  It’s one of my favorite school pictures, probably because the next six years consisted of a bad haircut and huge glasses (sorry Mom, you know it’s true).  Yes, first grade was a bittersweet year for me–I started out with my favorite outfit early and ended the year with glasses that overtook my face.

What was your favorite school year picture?


  1. I love your skirt! I'm pretty sure my favourite school photo was grade one or two. I got very unfortunate looking after that due to my glasses.


  2. Love the yellow top – and what a great necklace!

    I think my favorite yearbook picture has to be from grade 11 when I went full out goth with black lipstick and a dog collar on my neck and the when the photographer told me to smile I arrogantly did a giant and ridiculously fake smile that caused a thousand and one weird bones on my neck to pop out and that's the photo. I look like a serial killer/evil witch/mental patient and I laugh out loud every time I see it.

  3. haha, I have the best image of you at that age! Your posts always make me laugh! But I really do love this skirt and sweater…perfect for 1st grade and your twenty's.

  4. I love this!!! Such a great work, look but perfect for elsewhere!!! I think my favorite was none – my mom dressed me in horrible Gap head-to toe….jean vests over peasant dresses with lace up boots (umm hello littel house on the prarie…)

  5. In fourth grade I wore an argyle sweater vest over a pink button down and knee highs. I was convinced I looked like Alicia Silverstone in Clueless but the pictures read otherwise.

    I love your mustard sweater and skirt combo.

  6. This skirt is so pretty! I love this whole outfit! And love your little first grade photo story! Too cute! If it makes you feel better, I had a mushroom cut that grew into a mullet. True story. Brutal.

  7. the skirt looks very familiar. i was thinking of getting it, however it was a little too short for me. i did pick up a couple of great skirts at gap recently though. i love the mustard and black combo!

  8. I have to get a mustard piece of clothing this fall. It's such a great color. And I can't think of my favorite school picture.. I'd have to open the archives for a walk down memory lane & I so don't want to do that right now ha
