The skort that got away

While shopping at TJ Maxx recently, I came across a blue asymmetrical skort.

My first reaction was to question whether adults are allowed to wear skorts. My second was to try it on. I mean, what's not to like? There's freedom in wearing shorts but a ladylike appeal to a skirt. Combining both seems genious.

I remember wearing them in my youth. In fact, I wore a skort for my senior portraits, a light tan corduroy pair that blended with the sand on the beach.

Sadly, the blue pair didn't fit. I liked them so much, though, that I played that mind game where you try to rationalize purchasing something totally wrong for you anyway.

I'll lose a few pounds, they're not that tight, that seam probably won't rip right down the back when I bend down.

But, I resisted and put them back on the shelf.

Now, days later, I'm still imagining outfits I could have created with them. And I'm on the search. I have yet to find a suitable comparison but the internet is vast so there is still hope.

I know I'm not alone. What item do you regret not buying or finding in your size? What got away?
