I love this picture of my sisters and I standing on our grandparent’s front stoop. We were visiting them in Maryland, and Grandma had just taken us shopping for these outfits. I’m in the maxi dress and my sisters are in the bell bottom pantsuits. She also bought us smiley face pins – you can see I’m wearing mine. (I still have my sister’s pin – don’t tell!) I’m also wearing my new pink plastic puka shell necklace. I don’t remember the sandals at all – we usually ran around barefoot, much to my grandmother’s chagrin. It’s funny how bright prints, bell bottoms and maxi dresses have come back in style.
