It is extremely rare, double emphasis on extremely that I represent my High School colors. I was never a cheer leader, nor did I really want to be. I only went to a handful of football games and have less than fond memories sitting on the bleachers…in the rain. I never really understood the hype. I was genuinely the kind of student who enjoyed going to school to GASP, LEARN!
Nonetheless, now that I’ve moved on from my home town of La Mirada, I had to make a stop on my way home from LA the other day. I pulled over to the In N Out located just off the 5 Freeway, and didn’t realize how home sick I was until I walked in and the tiny little restraunt was filled with my alma mater colors. The color scheme that once made me gag at the sight of, almost brought tears to my eyes. La Mirada folk are truly one of a kind. We may have a reputation for being a bit, off. But we mean well and looking back now I would not have chosen to grow up in any other city.
Personally I think these colors actually go really well together. I’d choose royal blue paired with yellow any day! Plus yellow looks dramatically better on leather pants than a tight mini skirt or a hand made scrunchy any day.
