First Friday {outfit to room series} School Uniforms

It's time again for First Friday Outfit to Room Series!  As you remember, fellow blogger Yana from Nomad Luxuries and I kicked off our new series last month with a Summery-Beach look.  This month we thought we'd draw some inspiration from the oh so fabulous (or not so fabulous) school uniform.  

Weather you think of little cuties like these kiddos:

Or perhaps you mind goes more to GG Season One:

In either case the basic features of a uniform are the same.  Black, White, Plaid, Primary color.  Done.  I mean the basic premise of a uniform is to keep it simple, right?  Keep everyone on an even playing field.  They're not really made to stand out.  But I've noticed some super-fly kids (think Jo-L, Jenny from the block era) walking the streets of DC in school uniforms.  They all find a way to make there personalities stand out regardless of the uniform.  So with that in mind.  I choose some pieces that are basic with a few highlights to make a the red ampersand or the yellow farm light.  All these pieces are also reminiscent of a school classroom.  I mean, why not go for it.

So if you're ever in the mood to design a fun little schoolhouse inspired office space, you've got a good palette of options to work with now.  This could be adorable for a home office or small little desk area for a kids room.  Check out my Pinterest board for more pieces that will top off this look.

And don't forget to check out Yana's post to see what she came up with for her School Uniform look.  I'm sure it will be super glamorous!
