I understand the pros of uniforms. Really, I do. As a kid that grew up in hand me downs not only from my sister, but from the snobby family, who shall remain nameless, and whos daughter openly mocked me for wearing said hand me downs, I would have loved everyone wearing the same thing. That way, spotting me wearing your old clothes would have been harder. However, I can't help thinking...as I've spent the past two months looking at different suppliers of uniforms...of how DORKY they can be. I'm sure there are people that pull them off, hello most teenage boys day dream of a chick in uniform, but I've never really had the flair of effortless fashion. Effortless weirdo, dork, etc is more my forte. I may or may not have actually watched some youtubes with titles resembling "how to look cool in a uniform". So much shame.
Chris has always told me that it's all in how a person carries themselves. Confidence. etc. and if that's true then Ava will be awesome in anything. I just ........ gah I feel the angst for her. And as her mom I feel like I'm supposed to guide her but I have such a slight grasp of the world of accessorizing and fashion and feel so entirely not up to the task. So I am making this plea. It takes a village to raise a child, so I'm calling you out village folk. If you find a sweater, belt, head band, pants or top that fit in these guidelines and would be awesome...please PLEASE send it to me. Ava is really excited, but anxious about starting big school. I want her to feel confident about her style, albeit uniform based, so that she can go in there and shine like the star we all know her to be.
