Editorial. The Uniform

I recently found this image while perusing one of my favorite blogs, and something about it struck me. I guess it is the subtle resemblance that the colors, crisp blouse and dungaree structure have to the school uniforms I spent many years donning while attending preparatory school. However, instead of thinking of the slight wardrobe oppression I used to feel when I saw clothes that reminded me of my old school uniform, not to mention the teenage angst that came along with it, I actually felt cautiously optimistic.

Maybe it is the nostalgia, or maybe it is simply the fact that I have a deep appreciation for good tailoring and menswear, but this look has me looking at the school uniform in a whole new, grownup way.
