Cool in Culottes

Culottes are like when a pair of pants, shorts and a skirt get together and have a baby! Ha ha! They are loose and cool but not stuffy like a traditional pair of pants. They don’t leave you feeling exposed like skirts can sometimes. Finding the right pair can be tricky but once you do, they will be a spring and summer favorite.

I styled these white culottes with a bright red orange top that I picked up from a thrift shop for $4 bucks about two years ago. What style experts say about timeless pieces is true. The shirt is from the 90’s but is 100% silk and is in great condition. Red orange is definitely a spring and summer trend this year so I was glad to already have it.

Lastly, I added a leopard print belt (LOVE leopard prints!!!!) and my fancy bow pumps. My belt and shoes make an other wise forgettable outfit stand out and memorable. When you keep pieces simple you can go crazy with the little things that matter! The purses that you see here are from Milan Blocks and you can mix and match them easily with a simple outfit. They are so fun that you will want them to be the center of attention when you go out! What interesting things do you like to add to simple outfits to make it stand out? Leave me comment and let me know, Enjoy!

Thrifted Love| OOTD

I’m not sure if I have mentioned this before but I absolutely love leopard prints! This outfit gives me a “clean slate” to put all of my leopard accessories with. While I was out having lunch with my husband a few days ago we stopped by a thrift store. I thrifted this top for 4.50 and the shorts for $5.00. Both of these items for under $10!?!?! So awesome right?!

The shirt is a size 10 but looks great tucked into a high waisted bottom. The shorts actually started out as pants. I have been wanting a pair of high waisted shorts that aren’t too short. I definitely don’t want my cheeks hanging out but nowadays it’s tough to find that combination. This older denim provides me with HUGE deep pockets, a high waist, and adjustable length. Everything I wanted! Don’t you love when that happens? Me too!

To spice everything up I went for my leopard print belt, leopard bracelet, Charm Envy nail bracelet and my A+B necklace. My go to brown purse and wedge heels were the icing on the cake. I just love when a look comes together 🙂 Today is Earth Day so try your hand at a cool thrifted look as a way to reuse, reduce, and recycle. Enjoy!

OOTD: Leopard and Bones☠

One of my many obsessions is leopard prints. This is one way to use it as a neutral piece to your wardrobe. All of these pieces were already in my closet except the leopard ballet flats. They’re fairly new because I just got rid of an old pair that  I had that I didn’t love as much. I’m very picky about the leopard prints that I choose. I tend to like a darker, richer print over a print with softer, lighter tones. When I saw these at one of my favorite stores (Target) I stopped looking. I really wish I had gotten a pair I truly loved to begin with. Now that I’m really focused when I shop I no longer settle for anything that is not EXACTLY what I want.

This OOTD is really flexible when it comes to body temperature and can help you stay warmer if you’re cold all the time (Like me) or as you warm up take off your graphic sweater and stay cool. Enjoy!
