Patches?! I don't need no stinking patches!

I found this vintage girl scout's uniform at Arc's Value Village before Halloween. I've worn it once before but it was on a weekend, so I never got a picture of it. It's pretty short so for work I wore jeans under it today!
T-shirt - Target
Dress - thrifted vintage Girl Scout uniform
Jeans - Earnest Sewn
Shoes - from a Modcloth gift certificate I won

I don't talk too much about work here but I decided to put something on here today because it makes me laugh every day. This is Sharkington, who was colored by a six year old for me:
Sharkington lives on the uniform cupboard in my office and lectures the elementary students at my school who somehow "forget" that they wear uniforms to school and come in jeans. Now when kids come in my office out of uniform I just point at the cupboard and say "Go let Sharkington yell at you for a while." Yesterday an eight year old boy replied, "I heard you were weird." Totally made my day.

That is so awesome! "I heard you were weird" that is so funny. I like the girl scout uniform. It makes a great tunic.

That is really funny.

I wish I had saved my old girl scout uniforms. They're cute.

How very coincidental - I'm wearing a brownie pin as a necklace today.

I heart Sharkington!

hahahaha! That's so funny, I should steal this idea from you, but instead of uniform I should make it about tattling! I love this dress over the jeans, totally cool. I bet your students just love your style too. =D

OH MY GOD. I'm totally adding a Sharkington poster to my office. And I love this outfit!

I need a Sharkington to yell at my students for a whole range of things. And mine are all adults.

I love the little girl scout dress over jeans, it does look like more of a tunic than a dress but maybe leggings would look cute.

That's hilarious! Kids rarely ever come into my space but, whenever they draw me things I always put them up.
