Chambray Culottes

Friday, June 17, 2016

I have been seeing culottes all over magazines and blogs. I wasn't sure it was a trend that would work for me but decided to give it a try anyway. I headed to one of my favorite stores, Madewell {I'm sure you already knew that} and found the most perfect comfortable pair.

Before I post about a new piece I will usually wear it a couple times so I can really get a feel for how it looks best and my preference when it comes to styling an outfit. In this case, I love the easy comfortable look the soft chambray brings to the pant, but I think it looked best with a sharp crease I created while ironing it. The first time I wore them I steamed them and did not love the look of the flat fabric on me.

I styled this outfit with a bright Anthropologie top I have own for 9 years now! {I was shocked myself when I did the math}. I bring it out every Summer because I love the color and cut. The flow of the top it's perfect and because it's not too long, it prevents the outfit from looking too dumpy.

The necklace it's also an Anthropologie find from a few years ago, It's quite heavy but I love the detail. I also did nude heels {since the top part of my outfit was already too bright} and my trusted Tory Burch bag.

    Dede Raad,

  4. Those definitely work on you! I love the color combination with that yellow. I've been so scared to try them as my legs are short and thighs are wide, but this makes me want to!

  5. I have been on the fence about culottes...not having long legs, I'm afraid they'll make me look shorter. But these are so flattering on you, I'm totally inspired!! And how good does it feel when you realize you made such a good purchase SEVEN years ago 🙌🏻


  6. You look amazing! Aren't you so glad you tried them? You killed this look! Love that bag too! Xo

  7. You styled this so perfectly! I think I'll try them out now because I love the way they look on you

  8. These are amazing! I have a black pair that I literally wear all the time! These are perfect for summer!


  9. Such a stylish summer look! I've been dying to buy a pair of culottes but can never find one that fits right. This is so cute and I'll definitely have to check out Madewell now!


  10. You look so incredibly chic, culottes are for you! I love how you styled them with the nude heels :)
