The London Look

As I write this post the clouds are slowly starting to roll in over London- a complete turnaround from last weekends glorious sunshine! Oh well, you can’t have it all!

After a pretty hectic week at work, I thought I would try and utilise my day off to update the blog! It has been a while but I’ve been finding it hard to make time to write a post lately with so much going on!

Anyway, back to last weekends amazing weather! We decided to make the most of it and headed off to Chelsea to enjoy some sunshine and shopping (two of my favourite things) and so I thought what better occasion to whip out my new culottes from H&M?! 


I have to admit that I was about dubious to try out the whole culottes trend when it first began to hit the high streets. As a more bottom-heavy woman, I have to be very particular when it comes to finding the right trousers/jeans as it can sometimes leaving me looking very oddly proportioned. Therefore, I tend to avoid anything wide cut or flared however these culottes give a great, seamless shape. I think this is owed mainly to the the face that they are high waisted (and of course an elasticated waist always helps!).

They are SUPER comfortable and light which was perfect in the intense London heat (it always seems to be 10x hotter in the city), allowing me to feel as if I was walking around visually naked! (albeit with less strange looks from passersby) 

If you haven’t already nabbed yourself a pair of culottes, I would highly recommend that you do! Not only are they super comfy but they are one of those incredible pieces that can be dressed up or down which makes them perfect for any occasion! I went for something halfway in the middle on this occasion as you can see. 

P.S how amazing are my new espadrille wedges from ASOS?! They are THE most comfortable heeled shoes I have ever owned and were an absolute bargain at just £20!!
