Let me start with this. 1977. I think. Although my stylin' shirt says "Spirit of '76" all over it. Then I've got my denim apple worm bibs on. But of course, the best piece is the Miller Beer hat. Come on folks, if you're going to dress you toddler in beer gear, at least pick a decent beer?!? Do they make 2T Corona hats these days?
Okay, fast forward to early, early 80s.
Here, I am sporting my purple high rise pants and stripey belly shirt.
They just never go out of style.
Another trendy hat option in this pic...The Captain's Hat.
Actually, the hat was at my grandparents' house.
Next we have the oh-so-popular early 80s terry cloth one piece.
What were these called anyhow?
Ugly, yet somehow, they kept you nice and cool.
Just think about it...you're out in the sun and you start sweating...no need for a towel. Just use your terry cloth one piece to mop your brow!
Also early 80s we have the pink unicorn rainbow shirt (you know my friends were jealous!), more high rise jeans (because no proper girl has just one pair) and the black sombrero.
My brother Taylor has a great sombrero too.
Souvenirs from my parents' trip to Mexico.
Moving on through the 80s, no kid was complete without a shirt like this:
If you're going to wear your bright flashy sweatshirt, best pair it with a puffy white jacket (with faux fur hood) and some matching tall white poofy boots.
See me laughing?
I think that's because I was doing some practice dance moves.
A La Rock Me Amadeus.
And finally, last but by all means not least, there is this:
Oh dear. Oh dear, dear me.
May I never wear a dress like this again.
That's all I have to say about that unfortunate piece of clothing.
And to think, I picked this pattern out myself.
