Too cool for school!

Millie's school is getting increasingly strict on the uniform now that she enters the Junior school years, but we do try and bend the fashion rules a little bit to give individuality!

The best way to do this is with tights and socks! I just love stripy tights and socks, but I really love the American Apparel different coloured leg tights!

Sticking to the uniform rules and adding a little bit of your own style can be easy these days, as a lot of highstreet brands such as Next, The Gap and  Zara launch their "schoolwear collections". Here are a few pieces from various brands I have found that I think you could get away with!

If there is one thing I love, it is bags! I have loads and love this selection of school bags!

As you can see school uniforms don't have to be too unfashionable, but if your school is super strict with the uniform why not funk things up with a cool bag or pencil case!
