I kind of love that this skirt looks like culottes in these pictures - how gnarly would that be? Adding to the "to buy" list...

  2. You look like a delectable summer dessert in that dress! It does resemble a culotte, thinking of stocking up on some myself.

  4. You look so summery and relaxed. I love the idea of culottes, but in reality they can be weird. Your skirt is totally lovely though!

  6. Such a fresh, sweet, summery look! Lovelovelove! And okay, I kind of adore the idea of culottes too. I have a couple of 'em and my boyfriend teases me about it so I wear them when I'm not with him, haha.

  9. ooh at first I thought this was a whole dress! I NEED a stripey dress in my life but cannot find one that is me yet.

  10. Culottes are the best! You can prance around like you're wearing a skirt, and be comfortable doing so, because you're not!

    Anyway, I'm still loving those brogues. They seem to compliment every outfit you've shared.

    Have a great week!

  24. Funny enough, I thought you had on shorts. Yes, the outfit would've been 'gnarly' if it was. But you're still rocking a pretty awesome outfit. I like how fun it looks.

  37. Love the colors here! That little yellow belt is so sweet and simple, but it adds so much. Those would be amazing shorts too :)

  39. This is such great color-blocking! I tend to shy away from wearing so many brights together, but you do it so well here! I guess the trick is to pick one of the colours to be the main one...oh, this outfit makes me so happy and excited for summer to finally be here!! :)

  41. Ah, this is one of my favorite outfits on you! Amazing pop of colors and I can't take my eyes off the belt! xoxoxoo

    ReplyDelete
  42. And I was convinced they were culottes. Looking stylish as skirt or trousers - especially with these colours.

    ReplyDelete
  43. the colorblocked primaries are so bold and perfect for summer! like you said, culottes would be awesome! & you could totally pull them off, E :)

  45. always love your use of color! also digging the title of your post (-:

  46. The word "culottes" makes me think of summer camp, long, long ago.

    ReplyDelete
  47. What a bright, summery look. You look lovely in those stripes!

    ReplyDelete
  48. But I never doubted it was a skirt (not culottes). hahah. I love that skirt,- something about your ensemble reminds me of a modern early 90s type vibe for whatever reason. But I guess not what adults were wearing in the 90s.....it's like you're wearing a modern adult version of what we kids wore. But in a totally flattering way.

    yeeks. I think that's enough out of me.
