Culotte Me Some Slacks!

Culottes cut the fall transition a lot of slack (get it?).  Cropped, wide leg and even with a hint of pleating!  A wide cropped leg with a gorgeously flattering waist, what  a perfect wardrobe piece to wear while bidding adieu to a ridicunculously great summer!

This is going to be my main look for 2014 fall – maybe even investing in cream, navy and gray as I already own 3 pairs of black.

Culottes from The Row

Not quite banishing the ankles and calves behind bolts of fabrics quite yet.

Acne Culottes

Culottes even allow for a little extended life for sandals, mules and kitten heels.

DKNY Culottes

So UGGS, mukluks, and snow boots hold off a little, bring on the culottes and let that tan fade away slowly…..

O.W.O.

reversecommuter was in a bikini or a cover-up all weekend.

Attacking the monster water slide (all day long!!!), made me appreciate investing in a well made bathing suit!

Merci beaucoup Shan!

Jean Jacket Love

Nothing like a Memorial Day long weekend to remind you of the importance of the ultimate American wardrobe staple – the denim jacket.

Quite possibly THE best piece for the summer.  Easy, quick, goes with absolutely everything.  Like wide leg linen pants, and Superga running shoes.

Oh and the price. that also helps to make it THE best staple.  J Crew has a couple of great choices, each for about $100.00.  Click the pic to go straight to shopping happiness!
