Creating some serious spring vibes with floral culottes

Creating some serious spring vibes with floral culottes

As you might have seen, I’ve been to Amsterdam last week and of course I had to do a little bit of shopping. As we don’t have a Primark in Switzerland it was the one shop on my list I really wanted to have a snoop around. And oh boy did they have some amazing stuff. After an hour or two I found some new trousers (floral culottes) and a couple of shirts.

Stepping out my comfort zone

When I saw these beautiful trousers I just had to try them on. I’ve never worn culottes before but admired them from a distance. First I wasn’t to keen on them, once I paired it with a loose white shirt I knew that was it – I had to get them. Trying new things and stepping out your comfort zone is something everybody should do from time to time. You might even find some new loves, like I did with culottes.

How to style your culottes

Styling the floral culottes is quite easy. Because of the print I went with a plain shirt. This time around I paired it with a white loose t-shirt tucked into the pants. (A black shirt would look great too). The shoes are one of my fave flats. They are black leather and give every outfit a sophisticated touch. For a night out or a lunch date you could accessories the outfit with a pink clutch matching to the flowers on the pants.


Top – Primark    Culottes – Primark

Clutch – Primark    Shoes – Tods

Stepping out my comfort zone with my floral culottes was the best decision ever, now I’m gutted I didn’t get some more! As these trousers are so light and airy they are perfect for this warm spring weather and if you get cold you can just throw on a jacket. This year around I always reach for my trusty jeans jacket.

    These look so cool on you!! Can’t believe they’re from Primark, they look like they’re from Zara or somewhere much more expensive! x

    I love culottes so much and practically live in them during Spring/ Summer. I just want it to get warmer now so I can get them out again. I love your floral ones, and agree that pairing with a plain white tee is a great look!

    I love how you stepped out of your comfort zone to try a new style! That’s what it’s all about 🙂

    Shopping abroad is the BEST! I’m always more adventurous and try styles I wouldn’t normally gravitate toward at home. Cute culottes!
