dream denim culottes


culottes – whistles (via ebay!)

cami and shoes – topshop

I DON’T KNOW HOW IT HAPPENED. Absolute dreams. You know when you imagine the culottes in your head but you can’t find them IRL (I swear this is actually the story of my life….and all I write about on this blog), it’s heartbreaking but equally very much a first world problem. Anyway, I tried (obviously) Zara, Topshop, even Warehouse on the hunt for these culottes that I had in my head and they all looked weird on me and appeared absolutely massive on me. I had the image of them in my head: perfectly high waisted, front crease, not too long and not too short, a deep blue wash denim. I went on eBay on the walk back from work a couple of weeks ago and these beauties came up. Hold on, there’s more to it, I went on eBay and found a size 4 (a bit of a risk  as I’m really not a size 4) but was so desperate for them I bought them anyway. Whistles, £150, brand new, I got them for £30!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELLO THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

Anyway, surprisingly they fit perfectly and I can honestly say they’re the best thing to ever happen to me in my 21 years of living. I wore it with my basic black cami in an attempt to keep it minimal and these lovely wrap around shoes which have lasted me the whole summer.

Here’s to more culottes and sweet eBay finds!

Sorry about my cheesy face I just couldn’t control.
