I used to hate these, and swore I'll never ever wear them again ( I used to when I was about 10 because at that age (and under) it's OK. But I love the red tartan to death and I'd really like a red tartan skirt. Of course some other colour could also do, but the red one's the best. I am just not sureif I want a pleated one, because it's been ruined for me because of all the stupid movies with the sexy schoolgirls... Of course it's all about how you wear it, and I certainly wouldn't wear it with a white shirt and a tie.

Here are some options I found:

This one's from Topshop. I love this one, because it's actually a kilt and not the school girl kinda skirt. A bit more masculine, but still girly enough when you wear it with the right items. Price 59€.

I said I'd also like some other colour, and this one's a pretty good option. It's got leather details of the back. Esprit, 59,95€ (Zalando).

This is a bit more expensive, but it's made of wool mix. The colour is not perfect and the material might be a little too stiff, so it might make short people (like me) look a bit of an auntie. Marc O'Polo, 134,95€ (Zalando).

This is quite the basic "school girl" skirt I just ranted about. I like the tartan and colour of this one, and it's not very pricey either. I imagine I could wear this with a big, chunky knit and thick black tights. Also all kinds of long tops could hide the schoolgirlness of the skirt. This one's going strong, and I think I might order this. At least to try at home. I can always return it if it's looking too cheap. Benetton, 41,95€ (Zalando).

Hello there. I have been a very unprofessional person and abandoned this blog completely without any warning. I am truly sorry. I've had thousands of ideas about what kind of things to post here and I've also been awakened and realised that I am not much of a good blogger. Trying to make the blog better from now on.

I am starting my internship at a Finnish brand R/H today! Pretty nervous yet excited. I am also happy that Christmas is within 3 weeks and I can now listen to Christmas songs and decorate my home very christmassy without feeling like a crazy person. I have been so busy with all the school and work and normal life, that I haven't had time to work out or write here. Both used to be very important to me. Now I am trying to get both of these dear hobbies back into my life, but please understand that I may still struggle with posting here, because I have even less time than I had before.

If you want to hear from me daily, follow me on Instagram. My account name is essiejulia. I usually post outfit photos everyday ;) Check it out.
