Red Culottes and Cobalt Top

You’ve probably gathered by now that I’m a fan of culottes. I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but there are so many different styles out there at the moment. If you’ve been hesitating about trying culottes, there’s never been a better time for finding a style to suit you. They have all the flow of a midi skirt without the worry of exposing too much in a sudden gust of wind!

For a shoe lover, the main benefit of wearing culottes is getting to show off fabulous footwear which often get lost under long trousers.

Up until now I’ve favoured more muted tones, but since wearing my Lotus pink wedge sandals with full length red trousers I’ve been on the hunt for some red culottes. Asos – my favourite destination for trousers – came up trumps with these high waisted ones. I teamed the red culottes and cobalt top with a navy jacket for a colourful but smart work outfit. For a shoe lover, the main benefit of wearing culottes is getting to show off fabulous footwear which often get lost under long trousers. Because I’d colour blocked two bright hues, I chose a neutral sandal to avoid overkill. These Clarks sandals are so comfortable despite the stacked heel and platfom sole. Unfortunately, later that day one of the straps broke and I had to walk around with one shoe flapping until the end of my shift. Fingers crossed I can get them fixed!

I’m off to a family wedding reception later and it’s gonna be hot, hot, hot! I’m having a long overdue haircut and colour beforehand so I’ll post a piccy on Insta 🙂

What plans do you have for the weekend? Will you be outdoors enjoying the sunshine? Whatever you’re doing I hope you have a good one!

    I love those culottes! I totally agree about one of the main benefits being that you get to show off your shoes.
