Styling denim culottes.


Hi there, hope you've all had a fabulous weekend.
How's your transitional shopping going?
I need to have a day to go through my wardrobe and sort things out!
So much disorganisation in there I can't seem to find anything, searching for stuff, and finding something I was previously looking for, what I actually need is a bigger closet!

So back to today, what am I wearing?
Well this outfit I actually wore a few weeks ago.  Having seen denim culottes on a few blogs I thought they might be a good choice to have for Autumn, this has proved to be a great decision because I've worn them umpteen times since I bought them.
They go with so much of my wardrobe, feel comfortable and look casual with a hint of style.
Pairing a blush pink long sleeved blouse which I got from Primark ages ago.  I like the fact it has a blouson effect on the front, but the back remains like shirt tails - great for tucking in or left to hang (and cover me bum!)
As always a cute necklace with a little bit of bling in it - picking out my outfit colours perfectly.
I've also added the recent sale item I bought from H &M, this snood will go a long way with my outfits, adding depth along with keeping me warm!  This was only £3 in the sale!  I can't wait to wear it again.





What about a backpack for a lady over fifty?  Yep I think I can get away with it, however this one was borrowed from Esther, we both thought it fitted in quite well with my look - I may have to buy one, what do you think? amazon similar




I popped on these suede wedge sandals, firstly because they matched colour wise with the snood, and secondly they were peep toe.  I'm pining for a pair of peep toe boots, but so far they've not been found.  I'm not giving in yet, I will find some & hopefully before the weather really changes!!



I'd just like to send my love & best wishes to all who are going through a tough time in the States.  I have been watching the TV news and hope you are staying safe and not suffering too much from the horrendous weather. 😔

So I'm off now, I'll catch up with you on Thursday. x

  2. One of my favourite colours jacqui is Blush. It suits you well. I can't wear those cropped trousers though! They would be ankle length on me!

  8. You've put together a great look, Jacqui, very "with it" - oops, showing my age! I do think the backpack is just right for the look. Lucky you, I'm too short for culottes. Like ER's edgy choice of backdrop!

    1. Yep that was here choice, she thought it would be a good one. Lol, I use those terms too Mary. I was in the bank the other day and a lady was in there with about 5 dogs on leads - the bank cashier commented about the lady with dogs on Trumpton! Funny we both showed our age because we remember it!
      Hope you're well. x
