Rainbow Sherbet

Rainbow Sherbet has been my favorite ice cream ever since I can remember. When I was 5, I went to the Philippines and on my first day there, a sorbetes [ice cream] cart strolled by and Auntie Nelly told me to tell the man what flavor I wanted. When I requested Rainbow Sherbet, he looked at me funny and my aunt told him to just give me chocolate. I said, “But I want Rainbow Sherbet.” Aunite Nelly said they don’t have that in the Philippines. My 5-year-old self wondered, “Why don’t they have Rainbow Sherbet? Don’t all ice cream places have 31 flavors?” Spoiled American child!

Though I was deprived of my favorite ice cream, I managed to hang in there. In the Philippines they also serve soda in plastic bags with straws in them. Sounds weird, but I thought it was the coolest thing EVER. I still think it’s pretty awesome. 🙂

Anywho, for today’s outfit I looked to my favorite ice cream flavor and childhood for inspiration. Rainbow Sherbet doesn’t have any purple bits, but purple was my favorite color as a kid. I went through different “favorite color” phases throughout the years, but I have since returned back to my roots.

Purple, purple, purple. Everything must be purple!
