Oh, how I was so excited to wear this awesome outfit. I probably laid it out the night before with anticipation of the new school year. Who knew that shoulder pads were "in" when I was in elementary school?? Well this was 1991 - so I guess it should be expected. This was also the first year that I wore glasses. These too I thought were hip and stylist. And again, maybe they were back then.
Please note the discoloration of my hair. Half of it is a blonde, chlorine bleach look and the other is the brunette in me trying to come out. After a summer spent at the local neighborhood pool (Famingo Hills - another entry in and of itself), my hair had no chance at being healthy. Plus, I had the awesome bangs.
I sat on the rock in front of my house (obviously you can't see it in this picture) for most of my "first day of school" pictures. Thanks mom for documenting my childhood so well.
