Channeling A 1940's School Girl

A Vintage Nerd

I decided to channel my inner 1940's school girl for my movie date with my husband last night to see Fury. It has been a long time since I dressed with a 40's flare and I loved getting back to my roots. There is something incredibly special about dressing up 40's. Its almost as if we are linking ourselves to the women of yesteryear.

To achieve my 1940's school girl look I worn my Peter Pan collared cotton top from Boden with a white cropped cardigan from Old Navy. I scored this really pretty plaid skirt via eShakti. I honestly had no clue if I could like a skirt like this or as long as this one is but I took a chance and I love it! It is fully lined and has these great deep pockets. Yay for pockets! One of my favorites features from eShakti.

I wore one of my brooches from my WWII collection with pride. Last two bits were a pair of navy bow shaped stud earrings purchased HERE and a navy satchel from the Leather Satchel Company.
