I’m on a roll! Another outfit with a pop of color! Pastel green with polka dots!? Hmm…I’m not sure what to think of this combo.
I got tired of posing. 🙂
I’m linking up with Visible Monday and Monday Mingle and . Go check out the ladies!
I got this email from a friend and wanted to pass it on…I love it!
OLD PERSON PRIDE
I’m passing this on as I did not want to be the only old person receiving it. Actually, it’s not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.
- Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
- Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor , Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam .
- If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.
- Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
- Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don’t like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
- Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it’s about their children or grandchildren.
- It’s the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.
- This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.
We need them now more than ever. I was taught to respect my elders. It’s just getting harder to find them.
Thank God for Old People
Wishing you wonderful week, and thanks for visiting!

What a beautiful outfit! Very elegant with echoes of Jackie O.:)
Wow! Jackie O? I love her style! 🙂 Thanks!
I love that your daughter commented above!
Polka dots are such a chic and classic print. There is something of Hepburn in this outfit for me…
She’s been very supportive.
Ah, thanks Jenn!
Sorry for the late reply, I didn’t see your comment until today.
Hope you had a good day!
i love your “old people” post. such true statements! i also love your color mixing in this outfit. i happen to think they go together very well!
Thank you! I thought it was a great list as well.
Green and polka dots…I would have never put this together before blogging. It’s kinda fun sometimes just to play dress up! 🙂
Cute outfit fun for Spring.
I love your smile in the last photo! 🙂 And you’re so trendy! Pastel colours like mint greens and light pinks are so in this season!
Haha! Trendy? Nah, just trying to be more colorful! I’m an old neutral at heart branching out a bit. 🙂
I’ve been wanting to wear some mint green pants with a polka dot top and after seeing your post, I’m going to go for it! I love the combo on you!
I think that sounds fabulous. I’d love to see it!
great post my dear, brought tears and made me proud to be an ‘old people’!
My sentiments exactly!
Love the pastel green and polka dots!
Thanks for your visit and your comment!
Fun combination–and loved the ripped jeans from the previous post…you look anything but old! Here’s to faux fur! Thanks for showing off your style on Monday Mingle!
I’m trying not to look my age but to look appropriate for my age…THAT was confusing!?
Thanks for hosting!
It absolutely works Jeannie! I’m so loving mint green right now.
It seems to be the rage right now!!
It does lift my spirits to wear pretty brights….like the sunshine! 🙂
I like the Old People note. Thanks for sharing. And … the green looks great on you! ~ Barb
So true, isn’t it?
Thanks for liking the green on me! 🙂
You were smart to come up with a look that works for both Visible Monday and EBEW! In looking at the outfit, the dots are either turning green or making the pale green jacket look almost white. What to you do to keep your legs in such great shape?
I actually planned the green outfit knowing EBEW was the next day. I don’t have a lot of time for photos so this worked out great. Haha…I thought the same thing when looking at the photos.
Thank you for the compliment…I work out (not lately tho) with kettlebells when I can. It’s a great overall body workout without putting too much strain on my joints like running (which I gave up after experiencing some pain in my knee).
loove the mint! It’s my favorite color this season:):)!!! beautiful and i love the contrast created by polka dots
Not my usual look, but it was a fun outfit! 🙂
very classy and elegant look …at the same time, the polka dots add some cute touches to the outfit. I enjoy talking to elderly…they have so much experience and knowledge to impart!
I agree with you about our elders. It saddens me to see so many just barely existing in nursing homes.
I love reading your blog and so much so I have nominated you for a versatile blogger award, if you accept awards that is 🙂 http://vintagestylequeen.com/2012/03/13/versatile-blogger-award/
Thank you so much!! It means a lot!
i’m a fan of the polka dots — very much a “welcome spring” outfit!
It sure felt like spring today! So nice outside…too bad I was inside all day. 😦
Polka dots remind me of the 60’s when women were prim and proper.. ? I have no idea what I’m rambling about…
Anyhoo, I hope you had a good day!
LOL! We did get the same memo. Love your ensemble–polka dots and green…who could go wrong?? ~~Bliss
I say “great minds!” 🙂
wow, this is such a feminine and pretty look! Love the pastel min and the polka dots! You look beautiful! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Hope you have a wonderful week!
I think you’ve knocked it out of the park! Wow!
I really wasn’t sure about this at all… thanks again! 🙂
Pretty polka dots!
You must like polka dots?
looking FAB as always…love the mint green…such a great color for Spring…especially paired with the polka dots:)
I will take that as a complement coming from you!
Love the shape of your skirt and the pop of color of the green jacket looks great!
Thanks so much! The skirt is quite light, feminine and flirty. It would probably look fantastic on a younger gal, with it shortened, combined with a white t-shirt and a colored belt. I just might have my daughter try that!
The green looks phenomenal on you … but then, I’m yet to see you in something that does not look stunning.
Aww…you’re too sweet Wendy!
It’s been a long difficult day, and this has made my evening!
Ooh yes, I definitely like that combo – very fresh and funky!
I like fresh and funky! Thank you!
Are you back home yet?
Yes, got back home yesterday and have been sleeping for England ever since!
Yes! You look fresh and vibrant like a spring flower. That sounds very cheesy, but it’s true!
I have a special place in my heart for our seniors and adore this list. Thank you for sharing it with all of us. xo
I knew you would like the list as you’ve probably experienced them first hand.
Have a wonderful week!
I like it! Apparently mint green is the colour this spring… the one we’re all supposed to be wearing. It definitely looks good on you.
Yes, this spring is all about bright colors and pastels. I don’t mind them as they really brightens up your mood. 🙂
i think it is a great combo
love the minty green
and you can never go wrong with polka dots!!
This was a hit or miss for me….wasn’t quite sure about it. I guess it looked okay.
Really, your closet and your style are endless, I love the skirt, very nice …
Thank you so much!
Oh, how I wish my closet was endless! 🙂
I really like this!! It incorporates the new hot color mint green in such a cute way!!!
Thank you so much! I try! 🙂
Very pretty Mom! Love the spring colors!
Thank you sweetie! Have a great week!
You look as fresh as a spring day! Love it, and love your post about old people….so true!
Have a great day,
Thanks! That was my intent. It was so pretty this weekend…got the spring fever!
I love old folks (the ones I know that is), they are a different breed…I wanna be just like them!
I like this essay, I am passing it on today! You look wonderful in your polka dots and pastel — thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!
Glad you like the essay…I can SO relate to it now.
I really like it! Also, I now have more appreciation of myself, being older and all!!! Love the cute animal post. Enjoy the day.
I agree! I consider my self one of the old people…I have many friends who are elderly, and I love them to death! Have a great week!
