OOTD :: of venerably vintage, or boycotting “old people”

We truly are a youth culture.

When ASB leaders proclaim today’s spirit theme to be “Old People” and no one bats an eyelash, it’s pretty painfully clear that we are a society of ageists and who am I to protest? I am but a lone voice screaming into the void of adolescence, and an authority figure at that. Do you know how long I’ve been begging for Pajama Day? Can we say ‘futile’?

Then again, we all know that it’s not in my nature to go gently into that good night. So when I’m given parameters to be in compliance with spirit days (we have to sport at least 3 items per day that follows the theme), I try my damndest to tweak those parameters to suit my fashion sensibilities.

Hair in bun? Check.

Cardigan? Check.

Plaid? Check.

Sensible shoes? Ack! Check.

But here’s hoping the overall look is more venerably vintage than frumpy stereotype.

I intend to grow old gracefully, people, and I know it can be done! Forty is the new twenty, after all.
