Schools out.

Today I'm basically wearing a school uniform despite the fact I left sixth form 4 years ago. 
I read yesterday about a myth that red lipstick should only be worn of an evening so today I thought I'd bust those myths and go out with some on. I am wearing Ruby Woo from Mac, it's matte so doesn't slide on as easily but is really vibrant, perfect against the simple greys, blacks and whites.
I've just used a simple piece of black ribbon for my bow tie which my mum picked up from our local haberdashery. 
Jumper & skirt: Zara/Shirt: Topshop
Hopefully I will be able to put up some photos a little later on so my outfit can be seen in full but for now I hope these suffice, in my bid to be more proactive with documenting my daily wears.
