Ways to Add a Unique Spin to School Uniforms without Breaking the Rules

What I really need to do is step back and focus on the real meaning of Christmas, being thankful for all of my blessings and thinking of ways to bless others. My plan was to wear this outfit 'as is' to my husband's work Christmas party.
