My friend Jill at Tickled Pink and Green challenged her blog readers to post an old preppy picture of themselves. My sister shared this lovely photo on Facebook not too long ago, so it was one I could access readily (admittedly not the best picture of me!).
This was likely my junior or senior year of high school. To the left of me are my good friends, Traci and Scarlet, and we are at a football game. I am wearing one of my all-time favorite outfits: a J.G. Hook madras blouse, pink cardigan and pink wide-wale corduroy skirt, all purchased at Estroff's department store in Vidalia, GA. You can't see my legs in the picture, but I guarantee you I was wearing navy cabled knee socks and my tasseled Weejun loafers. I still have this outfit and the shoes.
After my sister shared this on Facebook, my roommate from my freshman year at SMU commented that I was wearing that outfit the first time she met me!

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
