We wanted to share with you some of the outfits our students wear to school. We donâ€™t always have our camera around but we have tried to capture some of the greatest outfits we have seen.
One thing I was not able to capture enough of is the princess dresses. Some of my kindergarten girls go all out. They have huge dresses, that they wear with light-up heels, plastic jewelry, and the lastest craze to hit my class... red lipstick. This was not something they got from me, but my little five year old girls break out the mirrors and lipstick every chance they get. I will go to the bathroom and come back to four little red-faced clowns. When I ask who brought the lipstick, they look at me with pouted lips and blank stares. I canâ€™t help but laugh.
The boys love to wear Konglish t-shirts, funny hats, andÂ Burberry. The boys never know what their shirts say but they will proudly take a photo when we ask.
The most infamous of fashion victims at Welton is one of my favorite students, Tights McGee. Tights McGee, also known as Philip to some, was given his name because he wears tights...everyday. Now you might be thinking, â€œThatâ€™s weird for a boy to wear tights under his pants or shorts.â€ This is where you would be mistaken, you see, he wears tights in lieu of pants or shorts. His shirts tend to be rather short as well and never match the usually striped tights. As you can see in the picture on the right, he chose brown and tan striped tights to pair (his favorite pair) with the bright blue Welton polo. To make this situation even better, Tights never likes to sit nicely in his chair with his feet towards the floor. Rather, he perches up, feet on chair, leaning on the table, behind pressed towards the sky. Itâ€™s really hard to not laugh while telling him to please sit down. He is a cute little boy but I hope this fashion is only a phase and that his mother will realize it really isnâ€™t a good look to carry on into Elementary School.
