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 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…..

Perhaps it is my background – working in the financial sector makes a girl yearn for glencheck and houndstooth patterns, especially when considering her fall wardrobe, even though it is DEFINITELY still summer.

Black and white checks are huge this season, but the really great news is that classic patterns never go out of style.

British Vogue just profiled this outfit from Marks & Spencer…Yes, I did just use British Vogue AND Marks & Spencer in a sentence!

Net-a-Porter has some fab options such as this fun TIBI sweatshirt.  FYI the word sweatshirt has been altered this season, think style piece not ripped old grey thing put on when needing comfy clothes!
