bringin' back the culotte
























i think we should bring back the culotte. i mean, it's almost a skirt but not as inappropriate when it's windy or when bending over. pretty cool, i say.
the last few days have been so gorgeous and warm. today it's rainy and gloomy and i just heard thunder. i like sunny days so much better.
i was able to kind of catch up on my blog reading today. it feels so strange when i'm not 'connected.' i don't know, you guys are my friends and i like to know what you're up to and what's happening in your neck of the woods and all.
you may recognize this outfit if you've been to my etsy store. i do have these culottes up for sale over there. i have battled with these. i want to keep them because they are crazy and i'm all about crazy. but i wanted to give others a chance to see the awesomeness that are the paisley culottes.
well, i hope your day is great and that you are getting ready for a fabulous easter weekend!

boots-vintage, ebay

ooh cute!! I just bought them!! Good news is that they're staying "in the family"!! If they don't work out for any reason we can always trade back! :)

I would never be able to pull these off but you look adorable!

I love that you said "you guys are my friends." Sometimes I feel like I'm insane or weird for thinking that I'm friends with people I never met; but I really consider so many bloggers to be friends! I wish we could all meet!

Just found some pretty pastel pink ones but they are much shorter.. I love the crazy print on yours, they are gorgeous! Culottes are the best of both worlds really :)

Happy Easter Amanda!
