After seeing many stunning pictures of culottes on We Heart It and Pinterest, and reading Tilly’s post on them, which is definitely worth a read, I decided to try them. And I have to say I’m in love! Honestly, I could wear them all the time as they’re just so comfy and fairly easy to style. I can’t believe that I hadn’t tried some before, as they’ve become a staple in my wardrobe.
The pair I brought was from New Look and they’re black mid-length, so you can see my ankle and half my shin. What drew me to this pair was the style of material: plisse/pleated, which looks so cool. Also, they’re wide legged, so they do look quite baggy as I walk and the material stretches, but I personally like the look of that. These are super comfortable to wear and have an elasticated waist. These are very versatile and can been worn casual with a basic tee-shirt or dressed up with something more fancy. Even though it’s not that hot at the moment, these are really good to keep cool in the summer and let the breeze get to your legs without showing them.
What I wore with them:
plain cropped baby pink Tee – New Look
Black and White Superstars – Adidas Original
Pink Classic Fjallraven Kanken Bag
Black Bomber Jacket – New Look
Peachy pink Old Skool Vans
I wore this look in the day and night when we went to Bournemouth. In the day when we were exploring the coast and during the Candlelight Procession at night. By adding a bomber jacket, I was actually warm enough for most of the night.
So I asked you on Twitter, Isabelleamy7 add me up if you haven’t already, which you wanted to see first and you said this, so expect a Photo Diary next week. But, for this week I wanted to show you some of the outfits I wore whilst I was down in Brighton during the half term. Most of this stuff is new and from Primark, so I guess you could also call this my long awaited Primark Haul and if I was to do a separate post it would pretty much feature the same stuff. Also please note that as the week went on I got more and more sunburnt and the chlorine from the pool irritated my face, which explains the redness later on, so just excuse that.

I believe the last outfit post I did was back in the summer holidays and I recently discovered a new clothing item I love ! I’ve never really been a big fan of jeans, as most of the stuff I wear is for comfort. Most jeans I’ve tried before have been tight and uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. Don’t get me wrong, I have other styles of jeans I love, but at the moment these are by far my favourite.
These Jeans are ‘Moms’ from New Look, I chose these as they’re ripped on the thigh area which I love. They’re really comfortable and feel nice to wear, however I have to be careful wearing them as they’re being to break on the bottom of the ripped part due to my knee pushing against it, which is annoying.
For a while now I’ve been looking for the perfect long top to tuck in at the front of my jeans, as most of mine are cropped. The one I’m wearing in the picture is from H and M and it’s perfect !! It’s the perfect length to tuck in and suits the jeans. I also wear the with a black leather belt, to keep them up, my black bomber jacket, New Look, and Pink Kanken.
