i busted out my culottes for the first time yesterday. oh yeah, i did.
and, i am not going to lie. . .
i felt self conscious.
and then my husband started making jokes. . . but he ALWAYS makes fun of EVERYTHING i wear (his favorite sport, to be sure, but always in a loving “can’t i tease you?” kind of way.). that he teased is nothing new. but this time i felt vulnerable. and i am a bold, unflinching “earlier adopter” of fashion that strikes my tastes. and yet. . .
so, i am torn. i honestly think they look great in all the pictures i see. i get the practicality – easier than a skirt for running around. they are modern. they were comfortable. they are perfect for this spring weather. they grab that 70’s groove that is so hip right now. i have embraced so many trends and styles from the 70’s without hesitation. so, why the hiccup???
d/k. i think i need a moment to absorb.
in the meantime, i have hooked you up with some fab culotte options in a variety of prices, some street style picts to inspire, and some runway shots from the spring 2015 collections to help you feel the vibe.
but tell me, what do you think??? culotte or not???
