My Uniform



yoo-nuh-fawrm- an identifying outfit or style of dress worn by the members of a given profession, organization, or rank.
In high school I went to an all girls school.  Our uniform consisted of green knee length socks (pulled up), a green tartan kilt, cream button up blouse, a tie and blazer. I loved wearing a uniform. It made life easy, it helped me feel scholarly and the blazer had an inside pocket for contraband.
This is from my alma mater's website

My monkeys wear a uniform. They take great pride, especially on Fridays (our Shabbat day) when they wear their uniforms.
Dr. J wears a uniform- consistent, neat, professional.
I also wear a uniform- not sure what my organization represents but my winter uniform consist of these things:
A tee shirt with a long sweater- the first one is from Anthropologie and the second one is from Urban Outfitters-

I really see no reason to wear any pants expect for Lululemon- they are simply the best- it is all I wear.
 

I wear two types of shoes, short and tall Uggs-depends on if I am feeling too lazy to bend down- I'm kinda in love with my tall grey ones though- they keep my toes warm and I HATE having cold toes.

 

It is not Toronto cold in the desert but certainly it gets cold at night and I wear a coat- this is the one I'm going to wear this season- again- I love it.

J.Crew
And finally I always wear a scarf- a big pashmina that can be used to cover my ears if it gets too windy or cover my back when the only seating in Starbucks is by the door-


This is my uniform- call it what you will- I prefer not to label-
Do you wear a uniform?

ps- that had zero to do with your post. Oops!! Unless you count pj's and UGG's a uniform, I guess I don't wear one. Although sometimes it sure feels like it!

Oh yes I most definitely have a uniform. Lately it's been tights, a long black tank and a short black stretch skirt with boots. So comfy :)

I (secretly) wish I had a uniform to take all the questioning out of my morning routine - it would save me some time, too!

Your clothes look casual/comfortable. Hummm-can that be labled a style? AS for me-I am also into comfortable and some days too comfortable. Slacks, definately slacks and jackets.
Those UGGs sure look warm. I like your style!

I often think how easy a uniform would be...but it still has to look good right? I'm still searching....

I love your uniform. M. may have to wear one sort of a few days at one of the schools we are considering for next year. love your girls' school uniform, I was always so jealous of the girls who went to private schools with uniforms. I secretly wanted to be uniformed. My uniform now is too sad to mention.

You are awesome! I don't wear a uniform at the moment. In fact, almost all of my maternity clothes are borrowed, so for the past few months I feel like I have been in costume, wearing things I likely wouldn't have picked out. But hey, free is good!

I love comfy clothes especially when I'm home, I lip into old clothes that feel so right:). No fussy frills for me even if it's a night out.

Café Bellini said...

I've started wearing my tall Uggs too! So warm, they are seriously the best (I don't care that they are ugly). I used to wear a uniform to school, too, and I liked that all the boys had to wear a shirt, tie and blazer every single day :-)

We always had to wear a trad school uniform. I hated it in my junior years, but secretly liked it when i was a senior. Later on when I was in nursing I had to wear a uniform or scrubs, which i quite liked too. Now - well it's jeans, long cardigans and woollen pullovers. Either crocs or walking boots Oilskins and wellies if it's really wet and windy.xx

Here, and only here on your blog, I can say I like (your) uniforms... I never worn a uniform and try to not have one in mind... because, sometimes, we are obliged to wear kind of uniforms (suit and tie is a kind of ???).

have a nice day

Pop Champagne said...

I went to a public school so no uniforms for me. yeah I hate cold toes too, the worst is when you step in snow and your socks inside your shoes get wet, ahhhh!

patty-jean said...

I love YOUR uniform...I have a dream uniform...presently it changes day to day depending on my mood - sometimes sometimes a vintage-housewife skirt/dress and sometimes just tight-stretchy jeans, a t, and a felted sweater (on the COLD days) or a sporty fitted zip up thing....but my dream uniform is linen everyday...linen pants, linen shirts, tunics, or such...and silk and marino/cashmere wool somethings.

jgy said...

I like your uniform, especially like what you say about the pants, I would love a pair of those...don't know that I've seen them in Japan, but must have them around!!
Lately I've been wanting high boots...

We see a lot of the school girl uniforms here, maybe because I never wore school uniforms I find it a soothing part of the 'landscape' visually to see groups of jr. and sr. high school students in their uniforms. But I would probaly not have been happy if I HAD to wear one.

Happy cozy days to you!

I love your uniform, stylish and very comfy and warm! I have my weekend, work and evening uniforms... my most treasured on the weekend ones I think because they usually have some fun involved.

Cashon&Co said...

This post should be dedicated to me! lol! All my friends make fun of me because I've had the same uniform for years..... Juicy sweat pants with a t-shirt or cashmere sweater, a scarf around my neck and Toms in the summer and Uggs in the winter. And my pants and tops are always the same tone: i keep it monochromatic. VERY boring but VERRRRRRY comfortable and I own it. :)

cpcable said...

Yup. I definitely go through phases of subtle variations on the same theme for years at a time. Right now it's comfy knit black pants, solid colored layered shirts and a huge black and white cardigan that I can actually button over my belly! :)
