Here is the thing:
When I was 15 and at school, the uniform police dictated dark grey school trousers, white or grey shirt, and a blazer. What did I wear?
Skin tight black jeans, black shirt, black desert boots and a “peanut” tie! These were the days of The Stranglers after all!
Being a mixed comp, girls too came to school in a variety of different fashion statements! The ones I liked (and this will surprise you) were the girls who wore flat shoes, short skirts and those over the knee socks. #endof
Between the age of 13 and 18, I was able to scientifically prove that these girls
were more fun had a most desirable spirit and energy about them.
Roll on a few years, and I find myself having daily arguments with my eldest D about the length of her school skirt. I have tried to reason with myself – but the truth is I want her to go to school dressed like she is captain of the lunch-time library club!
I know it’s hypocrisy of the highest order – just wondering if mums and other dads go through the same thing?
