When I first saw that culottes were back in style, my first reaction was "You have got to be kidding me!  Those were awful the first time around!  They were awful frumpy mommy clothes!"  ...  Yeah.
Eventually I saw a photo of culottes styled with slim boots under, and I thought it looked pretty cute.  And I figured you, my readers (esp. K--), might appreciate my trying out yet another questionable trend for you.  :)  And hey, they would be comfy.  So I bought a pair. 
Then it stayed ridiculously hot here, so boots are still out of the question.  And I'm getting a bit bored of just staring at the pile of new fall clothes I bought over a month ago.  So I decided to wear my new culottes today.
I like them!  They move really nicely when I walk, and sure enough they are quite comfortable.  I kept my outfit pretty simple and all neutral so that the silhouette itself could be the star.  Is this a trend you're going to try? 
(And another hot trend I'm super excited about is the ball-back earing.  I'll do a post focusing more on those later. :) )

  1. love the shoes. i should have bought them. but I am in an epic black pants battle right now and that is what I am focusing on. I have 4 pairs of the same pants from BHWM and they are ALL DIFFERENT LENGTHS and I am so confused.

  2. The ball back earring is cool. I'm not persuaded by the culottes. ;) but, kudos for the attempt!

    Lisa - I just got a few pairs of black pants in the Slone fit style from Banana republic. I'm in love.
