Style Icon: Mary Margaret

 "Once Upon a Time" is one of my favorite TV shows in recent years. The first season, which is on Netflix Instant, is all about a town of fairy tale characters, who don't realize they're fairy tale characters. You see, they've been cursed so they think they're just regular, everyday people.

Snow White (above, played by Ginnifer Goodwin) believes she is Mary Margaret, a school teacher, and, man, she has perfect school teacher style.

Cardigans, peter-pan collars, cute hats and coats, high-necked '50s style dresses... the stuff of wardrobe dreams. All cute. All appropriate for teaching math to children.

Plus she has great, great hair. Not everyone can sport that pixie look.

Love the tights. Love the T-strap shoes. Love that she is carrying around her work. Love the little stud earrings. Love it all. All of it. Every bit. Especially the coat, which I haven't even mentioned yet. Love that coat.

I love the little details on her clothing. I love that they cast Snow White as a sweet woman with short hair who teaches kids. I love that she holds a bird in the first episode like it's no big deal.

In related news, I now feel like I need to own way more cardigans. Way. More. School teacher cardigans.

I don't know that show but I do love this style, and the fact that they chose this look for the character. I've seen Ms. Goodwin around town here a few times. She shops in one of the same thrift shops I go to, another reason to admire this actress.

I love her hair in that last shot.
I tried to watch this series but couldn't keep up, my son watched it for me and told me about it!
