seventies school spirit
What is it about September that always makes me want to dress like a school girl? Maybe it's because I always wished I wore a uniform when I was back in school, so now I'm trying to make up for lost time. I had been on the hunt for a red cheerleading skirt forever, and I finally found one at an estate sale I stumbled upon last weekend. I paired it with a 70's short sleeve deadstock sweater I scored the previous weekend. I decided to go to the local high school before work this morning to shoot photos in this look. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find the gate to the track and field was open, so I ventured inside and headed to the bleachers. At first when I arrived, there was only a woman walking the track for exercise, but eventually a bunch of students came out for gym class. One girl told me she liked my outfit then asked what I was taking photos for. Honestly I'm surprised the teachers didn't tell me to get out or think I was some sort of weirdo for taking photos, but luckily I was able to get what I needed before I had to head out for work. I usually try to avoid shooting in direct sunlight, but I actually really like how these photos turned out.
