Reduce, reuse, RECYCLE: old school blazer and dad's briefcase

Skirt, Gap. Boots, Ciao Bella from DSW. Bag, dad's old briefcase. Blazer, old school uniform.

Last week while I was home in LA I went to Downtown Disney with my roommate who was also visiting LA during the break.  We ate lunch, painted our nails in Sephora, and took lots of pictures! I love being home because I can wear all of these different outfits that I can't wear at school right now because it's too cold.  I can't wait until the spring when I can walk out with bare legs again! 

In this outfit, I recycled some old items and created a casual, preppy outfit.  I'm wearing a navy blazer that was part of my school uniform in high school; it even has my school crest sewn on the pocket.  I thought that after I graduated, I would never touch my uniform again, but now I actually really like this blazer.  It has kind of a boxy shape, so I like to wear it open, and I think it would look good with more feminine silhouettes like flowy skirts and dresses.  The second recycled item is an old briefcase that belonged to my dad.  I thought that this beautiful briefcase would make for an excellent book bag at school, or in this case, an appropriate purse to complete a preppy outfit.  You can't see this in the above pictures, but it has two vertical straps in the front that remind me of the Proenza Schouler ps1 bag and all the other bags that are out right now that look like it.
