Outfit – Floral culottes as pants!

November 25, 2016 Fashion Outfits

Pants and I are not really friends, we tolerate each other, but we don’t go out of our way to spend time together. I’m more of a skirt/dress girl, or even leggings & yes, I will wear them as pants. However, I keep side-eyeing the culottes trend, I like them, but didn’t know how they’d go on me. These beauties came up on ASOS and I was all heart-eyed emoji. Sadly, they were out of budget.

For some reason I was on ebayΒ when lo and behold, the dream culottes were there, from an Aussie seller, at a much better price. Except at a size 24, a size larger than what I normally wear. I watched, I waited, I asked ElleCurve about the fit, and ended up snagging them.

Long story short, I LOVE THEM! Except as pants! Seeing they are a bit big, they sit on my waist, and because i’m not very tall, they actually work as pants! You can see in the picture below how they would sit if they sat on my waist. I could probably get a tuck put in them and they would sit as culottes but I think I’ll keep them as is.

Can we take a quick second to talk about these shoes! I picked them up from Best & Less! Yes, I know! Since when did they do amazing shoes!? 2 things. 1. The jewels on them are amazing and throw off whatever colour you wear. So pretty! 2. They are so comfy! I was a little worried with the back, cause some shoes can be stiff, but nope, I’ve actually been wearing these pretty exclusively since I bought them!

So, I look a little crap in these photos, I’ve been a bit under the weather. I wore this to the shops and to the doctors, who then in turn had me go to the hospital. It was a pretty horrid experience, I’ve never been to a hospital here in Melbourne and it’s been crazy due to the weather and asthma sufferers.

Have you tried the culotte trend?

    I absolutely love culottes and other wide-legged pants. They are so comfortable and easy to style. They are a staple of my summer wardrobe. And these ones look totally rad. And your shoes? Gorgeous as always!

    Thanks Cate! No, sadly it’s my heart. It’s basically what I was in hospital for at the start of the year, they aren’t sure whats wrong, but my heart is just fast.
    That being said, the hospital was SO crowded, there were oxygen tanks everywhere and at least 3 nebulisers going at once. At one point the line to see the triage was out the door & there was nowhere to sit in the waiting room, it was bad!
