“Culottes are my new obsession. I am seriously in love”, I told my roomies just a few weeks ago, holding up a photo of dressy, white culottes on my phone. “Culottes? What the heck is a culotte? Those look like gauchos. Do you mean gauchos- like what we wore in the 4th grade?”.

Culottes, gauchos, same thing. Either way, I still love them. A lot. Being 5’0, it can be difficult finding full jumpsuits and flare-legged pants that don’t completely drown me in heaps of fabric (or require the usual visit to the tailor for routine alterations). Culottes rocks- for every figure, every height. I find them to be surprisingly flattering, especially paired with some dressy sandals/heels. Even better than that, they are comfy x 100. For special events, it can be natural to reach for your typical sundress or your favorite maxi, but why not try something a little out of your comfort zone? Culottes can be perfect for that summer wedding, paired with statement jewelry, a clutch, and dressy sandals. Daytime? Opt for metallic sandals and a loose, beachy braid, and you’re good to go.

Have you tried culottes yet? If so, let me know if you love em’ or hate em’. Later this week here on the blog, I will be sharing my new – and very first – apartment! I am so excited about it, and I am finally done unpacking. Hope you all are having a fabulous week so far!

Here are some more culottes to keep you cool for the summer:

Turtleneck | Leather Skirt | Tights | Booties (linked similar)

Hey lovely people! The little leather skirt is my winter time obsession- especially for night! I purchased this sassy, burgundy one last fall, and I’ve been obsessed with it for over a year now. Every time I wear this skirt, I tend to be an outfit repeater. I constantly pair it with a black turtleneck, black tights, and black booties. It’s my go-to look for any night out. However, I think it would also look great for daytime with a long sleeve, black/white striped top and black riding boot.

Let’s talk about these gorgeous photos. Thank you so much to Taylor Nicole for all of these stunning photos. I had so much working with you for these past few outfit posts. [Check out her website here & her Facebook page here!]

I hope y’all are having a fabulous, fabulous weekend so far,

midi skirt (not available anymore • similar & similar) // chambray shirt // sandals // earrings 

Never did I ever think I would wear a midi skirt, let alone fall in love with one. A few months ago I was shopping for skirts online and stumbled across this one on forever21. I hesitated for a second or two before putting in my cart because I wasn’t sure if I would end up actually wearing it. It was such a good impulse buy and has easily become one of my summer staples. This is a little bit of a ‘tbt’ post because I wore this outfit back when my mom was visiting me in London. I paired this white midi skirt with my favorite chambray button down for a night out in the city to see Mama Mia, one of my favorite musicals. I really, really enjoyed all of the lively songs and costumes.

Sadly this exact skirt is not available anymore online, but it might still be in stores because I purchased it about two months ago. Below I posted some different ways that I plan on styling my white midi skirt over the next few weeks.

Dress Forever 21 (sold out online- but similar and similar) • Purse Rebecca Mink • Sandals Jack Rogers • Earrings Kendra Scott • Lips Revlon • Blush NARS (exhibit A)

This tie-dye, bell sleeved shift has helped me beat those Monday blues. It can be hard getting out of bed in the summer (especially when you’re a little addicted to 90210), but this fun printed dress makes it easier! This has definitely become one of my favorite pieces in my closet because it is so perfect for Sunday brunch, evenings with friends, and even those fall game days. I purchased this dress in the store during March, and it was love at first sight. However, it is currently sold out online (so I linked two similar options). I paired it with some gold sandals and cool toned earrings. I also decided to add my white fringe purse to bring out the whites in the dress. It’s been a fabulous week here in Texas with even more fabulous weather. I can’t believe I head off for Tanzania in just 10 days- I am so excited!
