Way back when I was an energetic youth and teen, tennis was one of my passions. As best I can recall, I never wore anything other than Tretorns on the court. I have a just barely narrower than average/medium foot, not enough so that I can wear a narrow width, but enough so that I get blisters if I don’t wear thick socks. Tretorns fit like a glove.
Maybe they never left, but I sure stopped being able to find them. Then, they turned up on Reese’s feet in a Budget Babe Dress by Number post. Finally, a celeb look I want to copy!
Of course, they take me back… in high school, I wore pearls EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Actually, I still do wear at least pearl earrings more often than not. I’ve babbled here more than once that pearls were just a few hours short of being my birthstone. Oh, rubies are pretty too, but there’s just something about pearls…
Maybe it’s because they are gifts from the sea, so to speak. (Don’t spoil my happy with the facts; I realize natural pearls are increasingly rare and that there are freshwater pearls too.) And then there’s the oyster connection… love me some mollusks. I also appreciate that pearls go with everything, so I don’t have to think about whether they match the rest of my outfit.
What’s making you nostalgic today?
