This really looks like a "first day of elementary school" outfit. Primary colours, white tights, red cardigan... I think red is the ultimate back-to-school colour! When I was a little one, my mom used to dress me almost exclusively in red and navy-blue clothes. I assume that's where the "red plus navy equals school" connection came from! I'll do a compilation of my best (and worst!) childhood outfits someday. I wore some pretty ridiculous stuff in the 1990's... like a fluorescent orange full-body jumpsuit. Oh gosh, I must find a picture of that! Do you remember some outfits you wore as a child?
Dress: Fun & Flirt via Winners / Cardigan: Pure Alfred Sung via Zellers

Speaking of childhood... Look what I found in my wardrobe! It's a kid-size guitar! It used to be my brother's. I've always wanted to play the guitar, but I was too poor to take lessons and too lazy to learn by myself. The only thing I can play on it is the intro of Sonic Youth's cover of The Carpenter's Superstar. I think I'll try to learn how to play at least a tune this summer (on a kiddie instrument) !
Sonic Youth - Superstar
One of my favorite covers of all time.
