High School Deja Vu

When I got dressed this morning, something felt very familiar, but I couldn't put my finger on it immediately. Then it struck me, it felt like I was putting on my old high school uniform. We wore white button-down shirt and hunter green skirts (usually plaid, but not always). And this dress today is the exact shade of hunter green of my old uniforms. I decided to embrace the preppy feeling. I kept my make-up and hair simple and similar to how I usually wore it to school, and I limited the jewelry to simple earrings (ours had to be smaller than a nickel, which was a big deal, b/c originally they had to be smaller than a dime.)

Here is the only pic I could find of me in my uniform. I'm the one with the pony tail and my eyes closed. Nice. Click to enlarge.

What I Wore That Was a High School Flashback:

2010-04-29 combo

  • white tuxedo front shirt (Tommy Hilfiger)
  • hunter green dress (Target)
  • bicycle belt (hand-me down from MissAmy)
  • gold earrings (via Macy's)
  • plaid heels ($9.99 Shoe Store)

And as promised, here is my other cat hanging out with a wedding gift that came in the mail. Yes, he is on a platter, in a box, inside another box. Kitty heaven!

Lesa - thanks!

Sheila - yeah, when you posted those pictures of Othello, it really reminded me of Beau. Mine doesn't have a full tail though. He's a bobtail.

Kathryn - I love it when people have the same clothing items and you get to see how other people wear it. I want to see how you rock it!

Zeus' Mom - I posted a pic of my other cat sniffing my dinner a few days prior to this post. http://tminustplus.blogspot.com/2010/04/cracker-and-pizza.html

EvaNadine - thanks! I wish I had my old saddle oxfords, b/c I would totally wear them right now.

Brooke - I am so far behind on my blog reading. I'm heading over to check out your kitty and your outfit!
