I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had a rainy one. So we dedicated the weekend to staying in and just being lazy. Oh and of course, we gave the blog a face lift! What do you guys think? I still have to work on the kinks, but I think it is an improvement. It's cleaner, simple, and easier to navigate. A big big BIG thank you to Munich Paris Design for all your help! Without her, I honestly think this new blog design would be a mess!

Mixed Stripe Culottes

When I came across these mixed stripe culottes at Asos, I fell in love. Even though it was love at first sight with these pants, I was hesitant at first. Would it to be too much? Eventually I pulled the trigger (thank you birthday money haha) and it was even better in person. I really love its wide-leg style. It is so wide-leg that it looks like a midi skirt. This is what sold me. It's like wearing a skirt without the hassle of wearing a skirt. I really think they can be workwear appropriate. I would switch out the cold-shoulder cami (last seen here) with a classic long-sleeve tee and maybe dress it up with a tassel chain necklace.

I love how unique the stripes are patterned on the culottes. The direction of the stripes switches on each leg. In my opinion, I think that's what gives the culottes the skirt like feature as well. It hides the separation of the leg seams and makes it so much more flattering. I honestly think if the stripes remained in the same direction that it may look like pajamas pants. These striped culottes also come in petite size. I'm 5'4" and I am wearing the regular length version. Below are other affordable options!



As much as I loved this outfit, I was nervous how it would turn out. When we took these photos, I thought the scar from my port was obvious. Luckily, it is getting better every day and it was not as prominent in the photos as I thought! I am hoping by the time Summer rolls around, that it has completely healed!

  29. I have never shopped at Asos but if I do, those culottes will be my first purchase cause they are stunning. Love the different direction of stripes and that they are bronze. How do Asos' sizes run?! Please let me know. =) I am usually a 4 bottom or 26/27 in jeans.

    1. It's one of my favorite places to shop! It varies with sizes. If you picked an item that is American brand, I say true to size. However most of their pieces are European and I tend to go a size up!
