OOTD: Floral culottes

Blue floral culottes: c/o New Look
White chiffon cami: Topshop
Silver leather lace ups: ASOS

My love for midi skirts seems to have been overtaken by a lot for culottes. I was very kindly given a gift card in my goodie bag from the New Look press day and knew immediately what I was going to spend it on. I'd spotted these culottes a few weeks earlier and desperately needed an excuse to make them mine. Thanks New Look for giving me the perfect excuse!

I wore this casual outfit during a day out in London with my mum for afternoon tea at The Wolesley. More on that later on in the week! The outfit was the perfect combination for the hot weather we were blessed with and the stuffiness of the tube. I'd forgotten the hell that was rush hour on the underground. They certainly helped to save my bacon a few times when I was nearly taken out by a gust of wind. Londoners weren't accidentally treated to a Marilyn moment!


  1. Love these - they look like a midi unless you know otherwise! x

  2. Silver lace ups really do scream summer, don't they? I know I can't wait to be reunited with mine in a few days!
