Experimenting with Culottes
You’ve probably seen culottes everywhere by now and might still be thinking, “oh God, please don’t let those come back into style.” That’s exactly what I was thinking when I started seeing this look on some of my favorite bloggers. It brought me back to seventh grade and wearing gauchos. I’m not sure what the difference is, or if there is one, but one thing is for sure — I love this trend!
As a woman with pretty thick thighs, culottes are kind of an answer to a prayer. They’re lose, they’re flattering and they’re so frickin comfortable! After I found so much success with this pair from Urban Outfitters, I bought these from Gap. I’m a firm believer in finding something that works and just running with it, aka, buying it in every color/look you can find.
Another bonus I love — being able to wear something stylish in the summer that’s not shorts. I’m not a fan of the cut off jean short because of those big thighs I mentioned above, so when I can find something to wear in these hot Nebraska summers other than shorts, I’m a very happy girl.
Also, I am LIVING in these black Steve Madden chunky heels this summer. They're a tad pricey, but so worth it in my opinion. You can actually walk in this heel because it's a little wider and for reasons that are beyond my understanding, somehow that makes them easier to walk in and a million times more comfortable.
