Week 24. Clothes. What types of clothes did you wear as a child? What was “in fashion” and did your style compare?. What types of clothes did you wear as a child? What was “in fashion” and did your style compare?
When I think of my life and cloths I think of uniforms. I went to Catholic school and nursing school and worked as a nurse. I wore uniforms. When I was a out playing I wore pants or shorts with shirts. And lots of dresses for Sundays and special events. I was in my twenties when I purchased my first pair of blue jeans.
I don't have a picture in the uniform I wore at St. Luke's Elementary school. It was a blue jumper with a white blouse with a peter pan collar. Topped off with a clip on navy blue bow tie with tales.
When we moved to Florida and I went to St. Clements Elementary school we had a light green and white stripped jumper with white a blouse, no tie. No pictures of those either.
And because I like pictures in my posts here comes the fashion show.

Do I follow cloths trends, no, I just wear what makes me feel comfortable. At home I wear my old scrubs, they are comfy. When I am out and about I am in jeans when it is cool, slacks or Capri's when it is hot with a blouse or polo shirt. Of course on Sunday it is a dress.
