Wearing Culottes

I think these are my first and only pair of shorts. I've been more than a bit obsessed with Hart of Dixie, and Rachel Bilson's character wears a lot of shorts and she looks amazing in them, so I was inspired to buy a pair and try them out for myself (they were on sale for like £5 so why not, right!) I settled on these really cool and casual culottes from Zara.


Top - H&M
Culottes - Zara
Shoes - Buffalo via Sarenza
Necklace - Kew 159


I really enjoyed my first experience of wearing shorts and naturally had to pair them with a signature Sherin monochrome look: my favourite! I added a cute pair of heels, some fun accessories and was good to go! I definitely prefer the look of loose culottes as opposed to figure hugging shorts: the ones that are so tight and short that they leave very little to the imagination: no one looks good in those (sadly, this doesn't stop girls from wearing them a lot, especially during festival season - I saw a lot of 'butt' when I went to Reading Festival last year). 



And a nice 'romantic' shot of the sun in my face...with a big cheesy grin. Naturally, this picture HAD to be shared. 

What are your thoughts on culottes?

lmao a lot of butt. You watch Hart of Dixie? How funny. Interesting to see what shows cross the Pond ;)

I wore a lot of shorts this summer because it was just too damn hot to wear jeans. I need more long, flowy skirts.

You look lovely lady! Dig those curls!

Tasha said...

I agree with you, I'd much rather wear a pair of shorts that are a looser fit vs. bootie shorts! I don't often wear shorts either, but these are great! You look lovely!

Oh shorts... I have mixed feelings about them, mainly because so many are so short and so figure-hugging and that just isn't my style. But this pair is practically perfect! Loose, billowy and just lovely. And of course I'm a big fan of the monochrome, as always :)

Very Rachel Bilson, you really remind me of her anyway and this isn't helping ;)
