Short Hair, Short Skirt, Don’t Care

     I hate being professional.


I think that fashion shouldn’t be restricted. I hate dress codes in any form. I feel that restricting what I can wear is like restricting my freedom of speech. Fashion is art. I will use my fashion as graffiti if I want to- bold, larger than life, full color six stories high!


But I totally get why we need dress codes. We have to have some semblance of professionalism in the workplace, in the classroom, in order to properly represent the institution I attend.


As a nursing student, I’m constantly followed by dress codes. Nothing too short, no crop tops, closed-toed shoes only. No dyed hair, no fake nails, no nail polish. No shorts, no jeans, nothing low cut. Nothing fun!! I feel like I’m being stifled and strangled!


So here is an outfit that’s totally inappropriate for class, work, and anywhere else I have to be, featuring a crop top and a too-short skirt. Fashion is the best form of self-expression; it’s the one that everyone everywhere takes part in every day.


On another note, I cut my hair and I’m loving it! I took off about 8 inches, which is the most I’ve ever done! It was time for a change 🙂


The top I’m wearing in this post is featured in Back To School Haul, while my ankle booties can be seen again in my August Favorites post.

What do you think? How do you feel about dress codes? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Love Kiki

  1. I absolutely completely agree! I feel suffocated by dress codes and uniform policies – fashion IS a form of self expression and you should be able to be the unique, beautiful stylish person you really are! On another note, your outfit is nothing short of absolutely gorgeous – and your hair looks incredible! xx


  2. I went to a private school growing up and we had a strict dress code. No uniform, but enough to feel restricted in self expression. I feel like that can really stifle creativity, which is tough for budding young minds. I work in the creative field now so I feel like all that dress code stuff was somewhat wasted on me. But it did define my style for years to come with classic/preppy style. Thankfully, I’ve moved on from there 🙂
