It’s been just a couple of weeks, but it certainly feels like an eternity since I’ve last published. As I mentioned at the end of 8 things I learned in my first year of blogging, I was on #mybigfatFilipinofamilyvacation for two weeks and while it was a great experience (admittedly, my head is still in bit of a jumble) I’ve been eager to get back at it.
That being said, one of the many things I missed about Canada were the chilly fall temperatures (for serious) – although I’m not quite ready to break out the heavy knits. After purchasing these black beauties from Aldo, this fall culottes OOTD was born (bam baby, bam). What better way to remedy chilly-calves-in-culottes than with a classic pair of riding boots?
I’m a little late hopping on the culottes bandwagon, but I’ve got to say I’m a huge fan. They’re ridiculously stylish and super easy to wear. This pair is on the dressier side, totally making them office appropriate. But what I love most about this fall culottes OOTD is its simplicity. Culottes make a statement all on their own, so keeping it basic (but still stylish, of course) with pinstripes and riding boots is all they need.
With that in mind, to up the cool factor I paired said getup with aviators – talk about #swag. Then again, I’d likely say that about any OOTD when paired with aviators – they’re just such a classic! And, obviously, so too is a gold, round-faced watch.
Tell me, have you rocked culottes this fall season?
