So Culottes | OOTD

I have to say I surprised myself with this. When this trend first started gathering steam, I had resigned myself to the fact that it would never work for me. Now here we are. 

Culottes. On me. For reals.

An OOTD ft. Zara culottes and high heel sandals, my Mansur Gavriel bucket bag in Flamma, the Aritzia Mony knit crop top, a Forever21 denim jacket, and a body chain.

Part of my still can't really believe it. My small frame isn't overwhelmed, I don't have to wear heels (but they are recommended), they're chic as hell... I'm sold. These were cheap as chips at Zara, and probably won't survive the summer, but I'm loving them and am going to thoroughly enjoy them while I can!

Chic with denim, chic without. That's another thing I've been loving: my denim jacket from Forever21. Also stupidly inexpensive, also amazing. The perfect top half of a Canadian tuxedo (lolz) for when I'm feeling fancy, or for those instances when I suddenly realize that I'm wearing all black in the summer (which is often) and need something to soften the look. 

But seriously though. It's amazing and I love it.

In other news, I just got home from my trip to St. John's, Newfoundland. I hope to have a few blog posts up about my trip in the near future - and hopefully a vlog! - so keep an eye out if that kind of thing interests you :) I went pretty hard with this denim jacket, so it'll be visible in a lot of my photos. Giving you all fair warning!

  1. The culottes look fabulous on you! I'm also a fan of an 'all-black-everything' look: it's chic. The body chain is a nice touch. It's so dainty and beautiful. Love this look! x

    1. Thanks Kim! I feel a bit anti-summer in my all-black, but I just can't help myself haha!

  2. How do you find the quality/comfort of those Zara heels? I love the outfit and I agree! I didn't think I was into the culottes trend but so many people are rocking it.

    1. Thanks Christine! They're just ok, really. The thicker heel helps with the comfort factor, but they aren't ideal for extended periods standing/walking. For the price, they're totally decent and good quality, but if it's a style you're looking for specifically I'd say to look elsewhere!
