I have decided I was born in the wrong era. This photo caught my eye while browsing old Saturday Evening Post Covers. I would have loved dressing up as these women are, to meet for lunch or just do a little shopping. The days of white gloves and pearls would suit this ol' gal. I enjoy wearing skirts and dresses. But, when I used to show up somewhere in a skirt...I would get a look and questioned as to why I was so dressed up!?
So, to blend in, I am stuck, in these days of jeans, tee shirts and tennis shoes! Which, is where I draw the line...I do not wear tennis shoes! Yes, I own one pair of Reeboks, which I had to wear when suffering from a painful case of Fasciitis and the Foot Dr. insisted, I had to have a walking shoe...Ugh. I have thankfully learned a great exercise, that prevents me from having that foot pain and condition anymore.
Thank the Lord!
Both of my Gramma's were always in dresses...as I child growing up,I never saw them in pants. And that was the norm in my Southern upbringing. Times have certainly changed. Oh, some for better, even I, must admit. But, I still yearn for the day that ladies looked like ladies...so, I will admire these old covers and yearn for a time gone by.
Love to all!
