I’m such a sucker for aqua/teal/turquoise, etc. that I’m not sure that I wouldn’t buy a skort made out of the perfect shade of it.
Not that there’s anything wrong with skorts. After all, I wore my fair share of them in my younger days. Specifically the period in my life when I insisted on hanging upside down from the monkey bars at church, and my mom was eager to avoid the inevitable complaints from the moms of my fellow seven-year-olds.
Oh, and skirts with shorts sewn into the waistband.
I wore lots of those too.
Clearly, I was destined to one day write a style-blog. After all, not many can lay claim to having worn both skorts and skirts with built-in shorts. And those who can should definitely do their best to instruct others.
ANYHOO, the main point of all of that drivel is that I’m not usually a sweater-shrug kind of girl.
But when my eyes locked on its cable-knit chunkiness in a yummy shade of aqua, I didn’t even try to resist.
I would say it was meant to be, but “the shrug of destiny” just doesn’t quite have the ring I was hoping for.
Ah well. It still looks cute, no?
