52 Weeks Of Personal History: Cloths

Playing catch up again.

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.

 Here I am in my last uniform that I wore as a Clinical  Informatics Coordinator.  My current job, this picture was taken in 2008.  Now we don't wear these any more.  I miss them.  Only because it was easy to pick out and put on, no decision of what should I wear today. 

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.
