Dress Your Best?

Today is "Dress Your Best Day" at M's school. Everyday this week has a theme: Monday was "Mismatch Day"; Tuesday was "Hat and Shades Day"; and today, "Dress Your Best".

M selected her outfit herself and - I hate to say this - but it's more mismatched than what she wore Monday for "Mismatch Day". Granted she is wearing a skirt and tights, but the tights have a very busy pattern, the skirt has a different pattern, and her shirt has an even different pattern. Her clothing selection prompted this e-mail exchange between Mom and Dad.

Dad: I get a kick out of her choice of clothes. If she can wear that outfit proudly on "dress your best" day - more power to her. Perhaps it's a sign she will grow up to be a brave, independent thinker - unafraid of her peers' opinions of her. Either that or she will grow up a fashion nerd.

Mom: she's more mismatched today than she was on mismatch day, but more power to her! I think dress your best meant primarily a skirt....

Oh this is hilarious. Or perhaps Maria has already gotten the rebellious attitude...that she doesn't have to conform to the what she was TOLD to wear...hell...I'll wear mismatch on WED., not Monday like they told me! Ha...
