I try to keep things pretty honest around here (and by ‘pretty honest’, I mean half truth and half lies). So I’ve got to be transparent with you all. This is not a skirt; no, these are culottes. (Or ‘knee-breeches’ according to Wikipedia.) Yes — the shorts that wish they were a skirt. Half skirt, half shorts. Culottes: the pride of the 80’s. Not a girl, not yet a woman. (Wait…that’s an old Britney Spears song, how did that end up here?)

I wore these babies out on our date night last night and I don’t know if the town was ready for this jelly. Just kidding, no one pays attention to me. I’m going to need something a lot more flashy than swingy shorts and red heels. I’m going to need a perm-mullet and some camo. Then I’ll turn some heads.

  1. Ok, that camo reference was hilarious! I live in a small Arkansas town and it's actually become a game for my hubby & I to count how many camo-clad locals we see while out on the town.
    Love your blog btw. I'm a SAHM and stop by regularly for some wardrobe inspiration. Never disappointed!

  2. Oh how funny it is the trends that come back around. I wore a full length body suit/ romper Thingy yesterday and couldn't help but think I needed some big bangs and ray bans to go with it.
