Goodbye SMOD

When I taught at Hanes we had a Standard Mode of Dress (SMOD) for students and teachers.  We could wear black or khaki pants or skirts and black, white, yellow or purple tops with a collar.  I loved having my clothes basically picked out for me every day and had a section of my closet set aside for SMOD;  that way I could just pick a bottom & top in the morning & know they automatically worked together.
However, now that I'm at home with Berkley, I really don't need the plethora of yellow and purple polo shirts that filled my closet.  So, I'm going to take my SMOD to Hanes for them to keep in their clothes closet there (for kids who can't afford a lot of the clothes, or for kids who come to school out of dress code).  
Goodbye SMOD.
