YESTERYEAR / Blast from the past with an old skort and today's light spring layers

The post title is a bit misleading as the skort isn't from last year but instead it's from almost a decade ago!  However that doesn't flow as well as yesteryear so it was nixed as a title possibility.  

They say that fashion goes round in circles and this time around skorts are making its comeback!!  Skorts are bottoms that provide the illusion of a skirt but with the convenience of shorts and that means you can go pretty short without exposing the fine china ;)  The fact that fashion trends recycle themselves is a good excuse to splurge on quality over quantity because you know when the trend comes back you can pull our your old pieces for new ways to rewear them.  Case in point is this skort I got almost 10 years ago that has gone in and out of donation bags but for this spring/summer, it has found its place back in my closet.

With all this talk about blast from the past, I thought this would be a good time to do my first "Throwback Thursday".  Without further ado I present to you a picture of me wearing the white sister to my above khaki skort... taken 9 years ago!!!  Oh geeze!  I am sure I will regret this in the morning but if I got a kick out of looking for and finding these pics, I figured it would provide entertainment to others as well.  The pictures were taken at World of Coca-Cola/M&M's World in Las Vegas and that is my sis and I along with Red, Green, Blue and Shrek in the second pic.  Along with super short skorts, skin-tight cropped polo halter tops were also all the rage back then, ha!  Hey... cropped tops are back in this season as well...

With that "Did-I-Really-Wear-That" moment over and done with, I hope everyone has a great Thursday and a wonderful Friday coming up.  Hurray for the weekend!
