Soft Blue, Nude and Peach | Spring Culottes Outfit

I've finally found a pair of culottes I really like.
I love the look of culottes on other people, and have always wanted them to look good on me....but I have had more than my fair share of issues with them!
See my culotte disasters HERE, HERE and HERE
Culottes have caused me a few problems to say the least.

These culottes were hanging sadly on the "Everything for a Pound" rail at my local charity shop.
All crumpled and pathetic looking.

Once I had freshened them up (with a wash and iron) they were as good as new.

The handkerchief pattern was a dream to mix and match with these spring colours.
A soft blue and a peachy tone.
Adding touches of black to pull everything together.

These nude sandals are so sneaky.
They are designed in such a way that I can slip a sheepskin liner into the toe...soft as a cloud, and cosy too.
Perfect for days when you want to pretend it is spring but the thermometer is not so keen!

My nude/blush leather jacket finished this look off perfectly!

  1. I was wondering if there was a sheepskin liner :-) I think the reason these culottes work so well is that the material doesn't look too heavy. Very lovely colour combination.

    1. Hahaha.... I always try to sneak in something for extra warmth Gail. :oP
      Even in the height of summer my toes can sometimes need a little extra to stop them turning blue!
      You are right...these culottes are light and floaty, maybe that is the secret?
      Thank you for your kind words. XXX
