Just got home after a hectic twelve hours shift at the pharmacy! After analyzing numerous files and solving so many patients’ health and medication issues in one day, I am drained! I felt like a zombie coming back home, driving and reaching the condo without even realizing which road I took… After a long day at work, even when I finish as late as ten o’clock or midnight, I need to take time to eat and decompress before I sleep. I am still on an adrenaline rush and can’t go straight to bed! For those who don’t know me well yet; I am a night owl! Whether I am working late or not, I feel the most productive in the evening! Except when it comes to training! It has to be done before my mind realizes what I am doing ;) But one of the activities that help me relax, aside from talking to my best friend on the phone and listening to music, is to write on the blog! It’s my open journal and it allows me to take my mind off work and escape any worries! I can share my daily thoughts and feelings and write about subjects that I love :)
Today I am sharing a look about the ever-on-trend culotte style pants! I love how the wide set leg creates the illusion of a midi-skirt. I find it to be ageless and effortless! I paired them with a popover sleeveless blouse for a minimalist silhouette. I could of opted for a tight sexy black crop top and a bright red lipstick if I was meeting friends for a drink! But I was looking for a simpler feel :) I like how the graphic contrast of the pink panels with the black gives the outfit a modern vibe! As well as the delicate metal chain! How about that colourful clutch? I found this purse to compliment the outfit not only because of the pastel colours that bring out the pink of the blouse but also for the abstract flower print that ties well with the contemporary style. Now, when wearing gaucho pants like these, I believe you should wear high heels! The wide legs can easily make you look wider and shorter, thus the importance of elongating your figure with heels. I chose to wear my timeless black leather platform pumps to keep a polished look and because they are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I own :) I wear them with everything!
Ladies, who will wear the culottes this year?
