Last year I took a vow to never wear culottes… and just about 365 days later I am the proud owner of 4 pairs. F-O-U-R! There are so many cute culottes out there this year, but the first pair I bought was a solid black one from H&M. Since I was just dipping my toes into culottes I thought a good basic and affordable pair would be the best way to test if the trend was something for me. I chose this specific pair because they have a classic pleat in the front and have a nice high waist. They’re basically a summer-y take on my favorite J.Crew trousers! Just days after wearing these for the first time I found myself looking for new pairs to buy. Culottes are incredibly easy to style and a fun alternative to midi and maxi skirts. Bonus points go to the interesting conversations I get to have at work about water in the basement and tailors who run out of fabric. Next to my black pair, I also have a gingham pair, a beige pair and a white pair (inspired by See Anna Jane).
Another trend that I have fully fallen for is the flat mules. Every summer I swear by my Teva sandals or white sneakers, but this year I have been crazy about mules! I shouldn’t wear mules too much seeing that I have had issues with my feet in the past, but they are my go-to shoes of the moment one days where I don’t have to walk much and have to look presentable.
What summer trends have you been loving? I’d love to know!

Being short I’ve stayed away from culottes, but they are beautiful on you and a firm blogger favourite. I’ve seen a lot of them in the office too, it’s definitely a good work staple piece! 🙂
Hope you are having a lovely start to your week! It’s a cold one here in Brisbane! Looks so warm and so pretty with the flowers for you!
