How to Make a Boring Uniform More Interesting

Something that a bunch of us have to deal with 5 days a week for a bunch of months in a year is a boring uniform or intense dress code(I've had to deal with this one). So here are a couple of ways to fix up your school uniforms or dress code outfits!!
1. Accessorize
Add cool accessories like long or layered necklaces, a bunch of bracelets would be cool too. Also, scarves would be good. For example, something that looks like the McQ scarves(not necessarily McQ themselvesbut, something like that). AND you can add other little things like pins and rings. Try looking through your mom's old jewelry, you'll never know what you'll find!!
Here are some accessories that I would choose:

Marc by Marc Jacobs Cherry Charm Watch Necklace
Convenient in to very important ways; 1. gives you the time, so you'll never be late to class! 2. Adorable and fun for any outfit.

Urban Outfitters Travel Charm Necklace

Fred Flare Pirate Octupus Brooch

Rachel Leigh Ribbon Charm Bracelet
I love these bracelets thy are adorable additions and they come in a bunch of different colors and charms!!

Okay, moving on before I get crazy with accessories!!!
2. Shoes!!!
My pick would be an adorable pair of flats that would be a print, metallic or bright color. But, depending on your school's rules, some of those may not work. Just remember your shoes are probably the best way to make your uniform more interesting.
My shoe picks!

London Sole Low Cut Ballerinas, in Red Spot
I love these and London Soles are perfect for a day of walking from class to class. I would pick any pair of London Soles to pair with my uniform or dress code appropriate outfit!!
