So many things went right, I think I’m going to split them up. So this is about the uniform. If you are a delegate in the future, DO NOT STRESS THE UNIFORM.
There were people in t-shirts.
Some Councils decided to all wear matching polos (hot pink, nonetheless) or cardigans (light blue) or cowboy hats (from Nation’s Capital Council of all places) or t-shirts (seriously). If your Council (like mine) does not opt for something like this, wear the navy blue pants you want to sit for hours and walk for miles in. Wear the shoes that are most comfortable and don’t worry if they go with your outfit. Wear a white button down or blouse or nice knit top. Wear a jacket if you want. Whatever style you want. If you have a denim jacket covered in patches, wear it. People will take pictures of you in it.
Wear your pins and scarf. This is not optional. If you forget yours, they are sold at the Girl Scout Shop Booth. Go get them ASAP.
