Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Polka-Dot

Today was the first day of school for al-Malik and needless to say, he was not excited about boarding that bus this morning….kept whining something about wanting a car….in his dreams and my nightmares!!!  Time sure does fly, after today I only have 1 more chance to get that “first day of school” picture, then he’s off to college!!!  Where does the time go…I miss my babies 😦

Hubby started back to school yesterday, he’s a Student Advisor in a Middle School.  When I got home and asked how his day was, he was like…”oooh you know how it hard it is going back….” NOPE…cause I don’t get 3 months off in the summer buddy!!!!  I have a house of whiners!!!!

In 1971, The Carpenters sang, Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down, perhaps it did for them but it doesn’t for me, especially when I get to wear a fedora instead of an umbrella!

Thursday is the horizon to the weekend…it’s all downhill from here.  Today is gloomy and overcast after last evening’s showers and thunderstorms that broke the heatwave.  My goal this week was to wear a dress a day and barring any major downpours tomorrow I will have succeeded.  I remember when girls/women only wore dresses and in Junior High I would hide pants under my skirts because my grandmother didn’t allow us to wear them.   My sister and I had a job at Arthur Treachers Fish & Chips and we had to ask permission from our Pastor to wear the uniform because it had pants.  Now here it is 37 years later and I prefer to wear dresses on the daily and hubby seems to enjoy it as well (side eye wink wink).

This Polka Dot dress was featured in my June post, here, but I decided to mix the polka dots with my green, patterned wedges from Ross.

 

WEEKEND IS COMING!

 

Today’s smoothie wasn’t as green as my outfit because I am low on spinach, I used blueberries, strawberries and non-fat yogurt and it was quite tasty.  Today is Hump Day Wednesday and the week is dragging after last week’s short one but I am plowing through in anticipation of another great weekend.

If you read my Monday blog you know that my week started out mis-matched because I was unable to prepare my outfits for the week on Sunday night.. It didn’t get any better and to make matters worse I stayed up late last night watching the 2-hour premier of Dallas (OMG IT WAS MUST SEE TV) which is why I have 2 OOTD entries today. The dress is BLUE and white polka dot but the shoes were BLACK and white polka dot and even though my son said, “mom it looks alright – I’m tired of taking pictures , I changed my shoes and accessories and this what I ended up wearing to work.
