By the time I hit 9th grade, I was grateful for the return of a school uniform. During my first 7 1/2 years in Catholic school, I’d studied and played in my grey plaid uniform from the time I woke up to the time I changed for bed. Uniforms were great (at least, in my young mind.) I didn’t like shopping for clothes in general, so our move in the middle of 7th grade meant that Mom and I had to buy a mini-wardrobe of outfits.
Needless to say, it was an unmitigated disaster. So many years of uniforms left me with an underdeveloped sense of style (which continues into my adulthood — hence my love for personal shoppers and shopping sites!) Thank God for Catholic high school!
All this to say that, at the start of the new parish/school year, the Mid-Atlantic Congress blog has changed its uniform.
