I was growing board of constant jean wearing and felt like i wanted to add an injection of colour in to my wardrobe in a new way. Its that in-betweeny season for us here as its neither hot nor cold. My brain is kind of against wearing tights at this time of year (i have a weird OCD in regards to some forms of dressing in some seasons.. its weird, i know 🙁 ..), which kind of rules out dresses as its really not that warm, plus these legs just so happen to not be anywhere near ‘summer ready’. I will hasten a guess they may never be, but alas i shall just have to just face that as and when (if?) the warm time comes.
Anyway, yes, so dresses are proving to be awkward at the moment and it just seems to be the relentless daily role out of jeans jeans and, you guessed it, more jeans.
So I thought to myself culottes seem to be a good middle ground.
Ankle baring and a bit breezy, yet covered doesn’t require tights and most importantly is not a pair of jeans.
Giving it a try seemed to be the route to go down.
And well it was a good route. I like them, i felt nice to be out of the usual leg coverings and i actually felt pretty snazzy (note to self: no one says snazzy.. apart from me).
Rust red culottes aren’t the type of outfit that blends in to the crowds, that i will give you, but strange glances from on-lookers aside, i really liked the difference.
And a change is as good as a rest as they say!
