March 20th - #77

Isn't this wild??? I have always like some quirky color combinations. Purple and green, ahhhh....this is a bit more limey than I would usually choose, but is sure goes great. When I was in junior high I had a cute pink/orange top that I wore with a pink skirt. LOVED it!! I might have to challenge myself to find something pink and orange to make into a quilt.

My clothing sense was pretty bad. I remember I had 4 or 5 wool plaid pleated skirts. Not sure where my Mom got them, but it was almost always an argument when I would be leaving for school and she would make me change my blouse because it didn't go with my skirt. She threatened to make me a chart to hang in my closet - LOL!! And she told me she knew that as soon as I was out of view of the house I would roll that waist up to make the skirt shorter....and I thought I was so clever!!

I've always been a poor morning person. I would have to run for the bus every morning. In high school, the bus left at 7:15 and I would sleep until 6:45. I showered the night before, put my hair in brush rollers or rubber rollers, or whatever was in fashion at the moment, pull them out of my hair, throw my clothes on and take off for the bus. 99 out of 100 times, my hair would be basically straight by the time I got there...the only thing different now, is that my hair seems to be gaining curl!

Wonderful combo. Our youngest daughter would adore that.

I had a friend in high school that wore a purple jumper and a light blue blouse - I thought it was horrid - and now I find that it doesn't seem all that horrid anymore. LOL
