While perusing Instagram the other day, I noticed some extremely harsh comments being tossed around on a post featuring the Man Repeller in a pair of high waisted jeans that looked like they had been plucked straight out of a Calvin Klein ad from the nineties. And because I was in the middle of editing this particular post featuring a similar style, I was anxious to see what kind of response the ensemble was generating on the social media platform.

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.
