Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘high school

If you are like me, you are NOT ready for back to school ~ not ready for going back to the routines ~ not ready for going back to the early morning regiment ~ not ready to go back to the homework, tests and projects.  I know this too shall pass, but give me just a few more months to adjust and I’ll be happy!

Malik will be a Junior in High School so all he needed was new sneakers, a jacket and shirts & other than a backpack and according to him a car (yea right) we are done.  I don’t need to buy school supplies because I’ve have a full stock which was purchased in bulk at the end of the season at Walgreens.

August 28th is knocking at the back door –  Malik is ready – mommy isn’t

Jacket, Sneakers, Shirt and Jacket – Burlington Coat Factory

Yesterday I was so busy and exhausted after cleaning out the crawl space after a minor plumbing problem that I didn’t follow my Sunday evening routine. Normally on Sunday nights I prepare my outfits for the week, they are pulled, matched and hung neatly on the outside of my closet door. In the mornings I don’t have to worry about what I am going to wear or waste time trying to match shoes and accessories which for me is vital because I definitely am NOT a morning person. In addition to not having my outfits prepared, I had a restless night thinking about Malik going to an amusement park with his friends today. Can’t imagine why I am so anxious but I can now appreciate how my grandmother felt every time I left the house when I was in High School. I prayed that they have safe passage to and from the park and he did send a text that they had arrived safely.

Now on to today’s miss matched outfit which I didn’t notice until after viewing the pics – not one color in this shirt matches the pants!

With only 3 weeks of school remaining my son is still telling me about events or special things happening at school.  Trust me, I love the fact that my high school son still wants to share this part of his life with me, but why is it always last minute?  Anywho, he tells me that he and his buddies have decided that the next 3 Wednesdays will be “Preppy Days” .  I  remember those days, we wore IZOD polo shirts with alligators on the chest, khaki pants, boat shoes, etc.  My son has jeans, sweats and dress pants so yesterday I had to hit up the Goodwill in Exton, PA.

I got him 3 pairs of dockers and a pair of Banana Republic dress pants, with the price tag still attached ($98.00) for $3.75.  I washed the dockers and threw the dress pants in the bag slated for the cleaners.  Of course I also found myself a few things and hubby gave me his waist size just in case I came across more new slacks in his size….gotta love it, it gives me more of a reason to visit the Goodwill stores because it’s like a treasure hunt!
