I’M WEARING >> Hoodie: MSGM | Pants: H&M Studio | Sneakers: Converse (platform) | Bag: Proenza Schouler
Honestly, the older I get, the more I believe in the saying: Never say never. My uniform in elementary and secondary school was the stereotypical checkered skirt (clueless style) in shades of dark greens, burgundy, a touch of red and yellow. I didn’t have such a problem with that, but what I did hate was the color of our uniform jacket; Bright green and exactly the shade of the hoodie above. I was always particular about my clothes, even as a kid. I used to ask my mom if I could style my own looks and I would always have particular requests of garments I wanted her to sew for me. I remember thinking that I would rather be cold than wear that stupid green jacket, because “who would want to wear such an ugly color”. I remember telling my Mom that as soon as I would be done with school, I would NEVER wear that color again, not by force, not by choice.
Fast-forward a few years and I did just that. Of course I had completely forgotten about the whole uniform jacket situation, but as I was folding this hoodie the other day, It suddenly hit me; “OMG this is the same color as that uniform jacket I used to have!”. Only difference now is that I actually kind of love it!. Perhaps I wouldn’t have worn this color on its own, but I love how it look when you add that touch of pink.
Do you have any school uniform stories? Did you love or hate yours? I would love to read about it!
