Kristin Cavallari's Laguna Beach #TBT Will Make You Feel So Old

It can be hard to believe sometimes. But once, way back in the early aughts, reality stars were just beginning to become a real thing. And one show that tipped the scales was a little So Cal-based series called Laguna Beach.

If you watched it while it was actually on air — congratulations. You, like this writer, are probably finishing out your 20s or digging your heels into being a thirtysomething.

But if you're only familiar with Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari through their rising lifestyle and accessories brands, then I am here to tell you that they used to be pretty average teenagers. There was a lot of infighting and miniskirt wearing and battling over boys. So much sweet, sweet drama.

Today, Cavallari shared a throwback shot to the early days of the show, reminding us just how much time has passed. And yet, that denim jacket she's wearing is still so very 2016. Behold!

Flipping through #BalancingInHeels is a little trip down memory lane. We were babies! Link in bio #LagunaBeach #HighSchool #TBT
