you may have your thoughts, but at least you have pants on

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

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

Hehe the brogues again! I wouldn't stop wearing them if I were you either! Love all the color in this. Makes me want to go to a summer bbq, pronto.

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!

Such a youthful, fun summer outfit.

bestie said...

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.

Such a great skirt, but I want to see the culottes.

culottes would be so badass. but I'm really loving the skirt too.. there's so much fun color in this outfit! x

Eli said...

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.

Amy said...

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!

Artfully Awear said...

Gosh, I love the primary colors in this outfit, and how do those brogues magically go with every single outfit? What a great shoe!

HiFashion said...

Absolutely love all the bright colours you're wearing. The blue from the skirt is so pretty and the colourful top is perfect for it.

Fashion Confessions of a Mommy said...

Oooh, pretty colors! And I could totally see culottes making a comeback.

Vivi said...

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.

Amy said...

This is the perfect summer outfit. You look gorgeous!!

my sister had a pair of gauchos when we were kids. this was the 70's. we gave her a LOT of shit for having them. we probably shouldn't have. :)

I actually thought they were cullottes. BTW - Zara has the best stuff right now. I'm kind of obsessed.

I just love this whole outfit! You are like a model in these pictures :) The color combination is perfect.

Bad Taste Toast said...

This colourful top is so cute, it makes me smile because it#s so fun :) And yes this skirt does look like culottes, very cool :)

Natalie said...

Isn't it so satisfying to wear lots and lots of color? You look like a stylish, grown up Rainbow Brite.

Jaclyn said...

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

LyddieGal said...

Your striped top is just so fun and summery, i love that everything is just over the top brightness!

Chic on the Cheap

Ana said...

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!! :)

Bionica said...

how very cute!!!
love the color stripes =)

Fashion Cappuccino said...

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

SabinePsynopsis said...

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

la petite fashionista said...

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

FashionJazz said...

Hope you are having an amazing birthday!! You look fabulous Mwah xx

Cindy Whitehead said...

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

WendyB said...

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

Kristin said...

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

stylefyles said...

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.

Jessica said...

So many bright colors! I'm loving this. xoxo
