Culottes, crop top, bucket bag – three trends in one outfit. Total fluke, but somehow amusing to me.

Side note: I knew about and wore culottes when I was a little girl, but never saw the word spelled out, so I assumed it was something along the lines of “coolots.” Because that’s how it’s pronounced and that’s how my mom said it. Then a year or so ago this style of pant came around again, but this time I saw the word written and assumed the garment itself was some variant of what I scampered around in as a kid. I also assumed that the word describing this new variant was pronounced “cull-oats.” Because I speak English, a very small amount of Spanish, and Pig Latin, but no French. And yet my childhood coolots and my adulthood culottes are, in fact, the same thing. LIVE AND LEARN.

    looking good. Are there any plans to show the new work you’ve had done on your leg tattoo?

    The Culottes are brilliant. They are such a comfortable garment to wear and I really like your styling, it’s fresh to my eye and a nice change to how we are seeing culottes worn in “street style” shots with super high heels etc. does this pair translate well across seasons? Could you wear them in winter with boots too?
