Casual Friday in Palazzo Pants

Hello Friends and Happy Feel Good Friday! 

Can you believe it’s the end of August and that summer is almost over? 

Today’s OOTD post is featuring a style of pants that never seems to go out of style and that is Palazzo Pants.  As a boomer it seems as though I have been wearing this style for over 40 years, yet some may say it’s a new style, gotta love those millennials!

If you are fabulous after fifty, Palazzo pants are a wardrobe staple.  The wide legs and elastic waist are very forgiving and can be worn with a simple tee shirt or a sleeveless tank as I have paired one with mine.

You can dress up a pair of Palazzo Pants with heels or dress them down and be comfy casual in flats or sandals.  This particular pair was purchased several years ago from Marshalls, but I have recently found a few other pairs from Zulily, check them out.

How do you feel about these wide-leg pants, do you have a pair in your closet?

Sitcoms of the 60’s

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

Driving home last evening I started thinking about the old TV sitcoms that I loved to watch as a child, the ones that made me rush through dinner so I could lay in front of the television set until bedtime.  We didn’t have a lot of homework so the only thing that might have cut into our TV watching time was Bible Study and/or Prayer Service at Church.

Now thanks to online websites like Retro Cafe, Hulu and YouTube as well as over the air stations like AntennaTV and Cozi TV, I can watch them anytime I want.   Having only 3 stations and broadcasting ended at midnight with the playing of the Star Spangled Banner these were my top ten favorites.

  1. I Love Lucy
  2. Julia
  3. The Beverly Hillbillies
  4. Bewitched
  5. Leave it to Beaver
  6. Family Affair
  7. Gilligan’s Island
  8. The Patty Duke Show
  9. Hazel
  10. The Honeymooners

What wasn’t there to love about that zany redhead and her antics with Ethel – loved when they moved to Connecticut


The first time we ever saw a black woman not playing a maid and we loved her son

beverly hillbillies

Come on Granny, you know you could have whomped Mrs. Drysdale – I always wanted to swim in the “cement pond”


Nosy Mrs. Kravitz and oh how I wished I could wiggle my nose to make magic

leave it to beaver

Wally and Beaver…really…come on June and Ward – I did like they had a bathroom in their bedroom

family affair

Something about Mr. Bill and Mr. French raising those kids it was such a sweet and innocent sitcom


Gotta love a feisty maid like Hazel, I often wondered if my grandmother acted the same way with the families she worked for

gilligans island

Really people…you could make a radio out of a coconut but couldn’t make a boat out of trees!  Poor Gilligan

patty duke show

I could never figure out how Patty and Cathy could be in the same scene…but it was obvious they weren’t

the honeymooers

Ralphie Boy…And away we go!  I loved watching the “shadow” on the wall – and everything fit into that one dresser drawer
