Hey my lovelies,
Hope all of you enjoyed the weekend, wasn't it great to have a nice long one??
We'd great fun despite the weather...consumed copious amounts of easter eggs!!
I don't know about you guys but I am loving the culottes at the moment...bear with me though, as the first time I spied them in the stores before christmas, my first reaction was hell no!! Whose going to wear them? Fast forward to March, and I've answered my own question, I'm wearing them!
I love mine, I bought a fab khaki/beige pair in Zara and they are the most comfortable pair, nice and warm and look great with a pair of heels and jumper/top.
Now I know Culottes are not for everyone..cue my sister's sniggers when I bought a pair..in her words " Ive been transported back to my 20's!" but when she saw me wearing them she seemed to change her mind!!
I've pulled together some looks for you and ideas on how to style them...I love them...now can I convince you?
Some of my favourite influencers, Olivia Palermo & Victoria Beckham
With Culottes the idea is to keep it simple, wear an oversize jumper or simple tops
