It's funny to think that I used to be teased for the way I dressed. At a young age, I had a distinct idea of how I wanted to look and and would come to elementary school in my favorite printed sundresses or bright flouncy skirts. Looking back, with all the girls wearing Converse high tops and Gap denim shorts, I probably looked overdressed for the fourth grade. I remember being taunted everyday by one particular bully (I guess you'd call her a "frenemy" nowadays), who would always sneer and say, "Like seriously, Tiffany? You need a new wardrobe." Back then, I'd come home and cry to my mom, who played--and still does play--a great role in my love of fashion and dressing up. Fifteen years later, I'm still overdressed among most of my groups of friends... except now, I really don't care!

Many fashionable people tend to overdress IMO….which is a good thing. It just means we put more time and thought into what we wear!

I'd rather be overdressed than underdressed ANY DAY. For years, I had fellow teachers who would wonder why I bothered wearing what I did to school. They couldn't get it--their attitude was, "Why bother? It's school, not the opera." My philosophy was that my job is important and therefore deserves that attention to detail. Kids appreciated that.

I love the look with the blazer, and that background shot (the pink striped wall) is killer.

I can only be supportive of your "over dressing". I always feel that way among my friends. But why would you not want to look as good as you can every day?

o.m.g. you don't even want me to go into all the fashion no-no's i did in jr. high and h.s. i shudder and will vehemently deny any direct accusation of the fashion horrors. but anyways, i LOVE LOVE LOVE your outfit here! =) i'm hearting the skirt and most definitly the cute top! and you always look super cute! sigh. too bad i can't go too much outside the box here at work. i think people would have a heartattack here if i even so much as thought of putting the shoes you're wearing on here. darn the conservatives!! ahah
