Fashion Weekend Edition: Long-Lost Cargo Shorts

19 Jul

Dig deep in your closet and you’ll probably find a hidden gem or two, shoved to the back when the seasons changed or when you gained or lost a pound or ten. A long-overdue closet cleaning unearthed a favorite pair of cargo shorts and collared t-shirt. Both fit again due to some long-overdue weight loss.

These shorts, shoes and shirt are all at least five years old, but they made the cut because they’re classics that still work for me. Other items were not so lucky. Four big bags of clothing and two small bags of shoes took a ride in my trailer to a donation station across town. And I have still more closet culling yet to do.

P.S. Can you tell we’re having a severe drought in California? Brown is the new green when it comes to lawns.

    I love seeing the brown yards here in SoCal. No, I don’t like the drought, but I do like my neighbors who have chosen not to water their lawns.
