I’m talking about CULOTTES!
Never in a million years did I ever think I’d welcome them into my wardrobe. Surely they just can’t be trusted. I feel like they have an identity crisis.
Are they extra long shorts? An awkward length trouser? Or an unflattering skirt?
But their wayward ways have peskily piqued my curiosity.
I’ve seen them plastered all over instagram of late and I’ve fought to ignore their presence. No way will I ever be caught dead in Culottes. They are a fashion item reserved for the supremely tall and long legged right? And yet here I am (an average 171cms tall) blogging about them. Oh the irony!
The truth is, I’ve always romanticised the idea of culottes. They carry an air of sophistication. An elegant European-ness that I never felt chic enough to pull off.
But when I get an itch, I have to scratch. And the curious culotte itch came strong and hard. So I had no choice but to give in and boldly try them on.
Now I’m sure you can guess where this is going…
A fashion love affair is born and I am smitten!
I would even go so far as to say I feel sexy in them. There is something so alluring about the wide floating hem line flirting dangerously with your ankles. A Jane Austin character would swoon at the sight.
It’s official guys. I am a culottes convert for life! And if you’re feeling the itch, I dare you to scratch.
Love Peanut xo
