I used to play the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone PC game religiously in middle school. Besides totally owning Quidditch practice and mastering my spells, I loved the school uniforms in the game. They were slightly different from the movie versions, and became my fashion benchmark. I bought Mary Janes and wore my socks (that were not knee high socks) as far they could stretch up my leg with my Catholic school uniform. I liked the look, despite the teasing at school about my socks.
Fast forward to today, and I still like the school uniform style. I actually plan to purchase a more grown-up style of Mary Janes for fall, but until then, I paired a loose button up blouse with a striped skirt that is fit for a Charms lesson.
Why couldn’t I have been a secondary education student in England?
