Note to self: Do not use a frozen dessert as a prop in Louisiana! Hopefully you saw the live footage on Instagram stories of this sweet treat melting to a puddle in a matter of SECONDS. Ava and I got a good laugh as our “great idea” turned into a sticky mess right before our eyes. Regardless, I did manage to try the boci (hazelnut) gelato and boy was it DELICIOUS. I have not tasted gelato as creamy and flavorful since my Italian holiday. Lafayette residents, run don’t walk to Carpe Diem! Now about this yellow plaid skort…
It has been years since I last wore a skort but I can say with confidence that I have been missing out. It is WAY too hot and humid in Louisiana to wear anything other than loose fitting clothes. A skort is the perfect happy medium as it is a cross between shorts and a skirt! This little number was perfect for an afternoon in downtown Lafayette. I was impressed with the variety of store fronts and restaurants up and down Jefferson Street. Already looking forward to my next visit, I cannot wait to try the frozen rosé at Pop’s Poboys.
This yellow plaid skort is easy to dress as it features a high rise waist. I dressed it this time with a white crop top and pearl heel sandals. For a more casual encounter, I would probably tie a white t-shirt to the side and slide on a pair of nude or gold flip flops. As far as the fit, the shorts hit about mid thigh and I suggest sizing up one size. The Asos Collection tends to run a little bit on the small side. Happy Friday!
