Culottes & Sneakers


I've been loving my white sneakers to death lately. They go with just about anything and most importantly, they're so comfortable. I actually wore this outfit to the Marc Jacobs Spring 2016 show for #NYFW and that was probably the smartest thing I've ever done. I was running around the show for work and I could not have done it without these sneakers. They run for about 60 bucks (ha, get it?) and they're made out of this mesh material that makes it unique from all the other white sneakers. However, as the temperatures start dropping, I'm going to need to look for a more practical pair. By far, my favorite pair of sneakers.

For my outfit, I played around with some tricky pieces. Culottes cut off at an awkward length in the middle of your shin and it's wide leg silhouette can be considered unflattering. However, to streamline my body, I went for this tight fitting top that accentuates my collarbones. For some color and extra coverage, I threw on this blush pink vest. Not only is the color amazing, but the cut of it is just as good. It's asymmetrical with an overlapping layer, definitely not your typical vest. Together, the vest and the culottes billow in the slight fall breeze, which is such a confidence booster to me for some reason. If you want to see how I styled culottes previously with a more classic touch to it, you can check out the post Culottes on Cobble Hill, and if you want to see the second half to the lovely top, check out Two is Better Than One.

I used to think that I can only wear culottes with a pair of heels to elongate my legs. However, after styling these culottes with a pair of sneakers, I was definitely wrong. This outfit isn't something I'm used to but for some reason, when it all came together, it just looked so right and so good to me. I can probably predict that most of you who are reading this would probably disagree and say I'm too short to wear this combo. But really, who cares?
