Looking The Part

I participated in my daughter's 5th grade class field trip today, it was enlightening and encouraging.  This field trip wasn't to a Zoo or Museum, instead it was held at Junior Achievement with a model of city government and business.  Kind of like a business school for 10 year olds.  It was wonderful.

My daughter’s class had been working toward this field trip for weeks.  They were learning about organization, inventory, money management/checking accounts/credits and debits.  They were not only learning about what it takes to run a business, these children were being asked to "dress for the part".  I learned a while ago that you dress for the position you want, not the position you have.  And the children's fashions I saw today were terrific.  I had to ask, 'Who are you wearing?’  Did they know?  No, but luckily their parents were volunteering as well so I got the low-down.

I've been into various shades of grey lately and our very capable Mayor Abigail had on the nicest looking grey skirt by Amelia.  She topped it off with a beautiful white blouse by 3 Pommes from LaDiDa.  It had delicate detail, just right for a girl of her age.  Now, I know the focus of this field trip was to enforce the importance of skills, which include math and paths of logical thinking however, looking nice while showing your mind power is a great combo.

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
