When I Am Old I Will Wear Bright Yellow Crocs...


... and any other kooky thing that I wouldn't be caught dead in right now because, hey, at that age it's cute!

My mom's Aunt Julie (my grandma's older sister) came into town over the weekend to visit. And wouldn't you know it, she had on bright yellow crocs. She even had to point out that they were real crocs and not some cheap imitation. lol! Those shoes with her darling old-lady haircut and surprisingly energetic personality were just adorable!

So I've decided that when I am old I will wear authentic in-the-moment pieces and will joyfully choose the most obscene colors... knowing full well that, being old, is the only reason I can get away with it. I will take advantage of the things my age has to offer, like 10% off Tuesdays at Ross. I will move to Hollywood because I won't be subject to the pressure's of looking a certain way and will tell them I want to be in a movie as "Old Lady Who Hits Man With Purse". And maybe will progress to "Spunky Grandma". I will carry a can of soup in my enormous bag just in case I ever do have to really hit a man with it. I will teach my grandkids about life and the secrets of happiness. I will try to fix up my great-nieces with wonderful "young" men I know. And I'll do it all while wearing my bright yellow crocs (or whatever ugly shoe they create that is popular in 50 years).

i've never seen a grandma type wearing crocs, but if i ever have kids you can bet your right pinky that i'll have them in crocs. little kids are so stinkin' cute in those things. plus, i'd like to bet it's easier to wipe the jelly off of them.

just stumbled across your blog and wanted to say hi-

Oh,I am definitely doing the same thing when I'm old.Although I actually wear crocs now as well.They are ugly as hell,but I would rather have good looking feet when I'm old,than good looking (and super pain inducing) shoes now.I've learnt my lesson with high heels.Flats are unfortunately my future (and present).

I think that's a brilliant plan.

My goal for when I'm a little old lady is to swear like a sailor, eat too much chocolate, and wear only orange. So it will kind of be like I am now.
