Ahhhh the 50’s ~ going for milkshakes, holding hands, nights at the drive-in, sock hops with a guy who’s got moves!
Today’s version I dream of ~ still milkshakes, holding hands, outdoor screenings & dancing the night away with a man who knows how to twirl me 🙂
It really hasn’t changed all that much (at least for me)
I realized it also totally explained my attraction to “bad boys” too! Oh, those T-birds were sexy!!
I spent a good part of my 20’s chasing rock-a-billy boys & drooling over their fitted & cuffed dark jeans, tight white t-shirts & leather jackets.
But you know what I learned:
~ their attitude ain’t worth it in the end
~ they’re really not original
~ they never grow up
Fun to look at, but I want a real man now!
If they were to have a reunion, I’d probably be chasing Eugene, the class nerd!
Even down to my style has found its influence from this movie, of course I tend to lean towards the sweet Sandy. I love full skirts & soft dresses, colorful & girly. I feel my most feminine & myself when I’m in a dress.
I used to get upset when people would always describe me as “sweet”, I mean what is that? Goody two shoes-y? Sappy? Nice?
Who knows….but now I comfortably own my “sweetness” 🙂

Wella wop bomb a loo bop, a wop bam boom!!
Here’s to SUMMER LOVIN!!!
