Kat woke up feeling unsure on the morning of school picture day, though it was usually a day that she loved. She thought it was cool to wear something besides the boring school uniform she had to wear every other day. And it was fun that everyone got to leave class early to get their photos taken. Today, however, Kat felt disappointed as she looked at the outfit that her parents had picked out the night before.

Hanging on her door was a pretty lilac dress, to be worn over a girly white blouse and paired with white flats. To top it all off, her mother had selected a big purple bow to clip into her dreadlocked hair. Kat reluctantly put on the outfit and looked at herself in the mirror as she straightened the bow. She frowned at her reflection.

“Ugh, I don’t want to wear this dress,” Kat said to herself as she fiddled with it. “I wish I could just wear my pants.” Suddenly, she had an idea. She went to her older brother Charles’s room, slowly pushing open the door and peering inside to make sure he wasn’t there. The coast was clear. Kat scanned the messy bedroom and her eyes landed on his closet. “Hmm…we’re about the same size,” Kat murmured as she opened Charles’s closet. Her eyes widened at the options.

“Kat! Breakfast!” her mother yelled from downstairs. Kat went to the kitchen where her family—her parents, brother, and her grandparents who were visiting from Trinidad—were all having a lively conversation. The chatter stopped as Kat entered the kitchen in the outfit she had picked out: a navy-blue suit with her locs slicked back into a ponytail.

“Kat, honey, what are you wearing? Why aren’t you dressed for picture day?” her grandmother asked with a faint accent.

“Hey! That’s my suit!” Charles exclaimed.

“I borrowed it,” Kat responded. “This is what I want to wear today.”

“What?” her mother asked, feeling confused. “I picked out such a nice dress for you. You don’t like it? We can pick out a different one.”

“I don’t want to wear any dress. I want to wear a suit.”

“But usually we only see boys wearing suits on picture day,” said her father. “Your classmates might not be so nice about you wearing that.”

“Dad, come on!” Kat said, rolling her eyes. “Clothes are just… clothes. Besides, I feel way more comfortable in this suit than I do in that dress.”

Kat’s family was silent for a moment before Charles chimed in, “I think you look great in my suit!” Kat smiled gratefully in his direction.

“You know, Charles is right,” said Kat’s mother, straightening the shoulders on Kat’s suit jacket. “You do look good. Would you like your father to show you how to tie a tie?” She looked over to Kat’s father, who nodded and raised his eyebrows in Kat’s direction.

Kat grinned. “Got any cool patterns?”

When Kat walked into the gymnasium later that day, she noticed a few kids pointing and staring at her outfit. Some kids were even whispering about it. Maybe I made a mistake, she thought as she looked down at the navy blue wool of her suit.

Kat gulped nervously as a group of classmates came over. When her friend Anna glanced at her silently, Kat held her breath. “Wow,” Anna said, softly, “I love your suit.” Anna pointed down at her own dress and added, “I wish I could have worn pants today.”

“Yeah, your tie is really cool, too,” added Kat’s classmate Tyrone.

Kat exhaled deeply, then said “Thanks! My dad helped me tie it.”


The classmates started chatting all about their mornings as they waited to be called up by the photographer. Soon, it was Kat’s turn to get her photo taken. She sat on the stool, adjusted her tie, and beamed her widest, happiest smile at the camera.
