I have said, more than once, that my mom should truly be the blogger here. She picks out the best outfits, tries new products and recipes! She is truly amazing. With that said, she gifted me this amazing outfit from Club Monaco for Christmas and I’m so glad that she did.
To be completely honest, I don’t have that much confidence in myself or my style. “So why be a blogger?” you might be thinking. The truth is I love chatting about my favorite things, and all the things, so it was only fitting for me to start this journey several years ago.
Needless to say, I probably wouldn’t have ever thought, that I would be confident enough to wear these culottes. But they have quickly become one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. I’m definitely a jeans girl and I am very set in some of my fashion ways, but I think it would be really great for me to branch out a bit this year. Not in a trendy way, but just by buying more pieces that aren’t completely casual wear.
Speaking of trendy, I recently saw this quote from Karl Lagerfeld and it made everything click for me and why I love the classic style so much. He says “Trendy is the last stage before tacky.” Now, is that good or is that good! Seriously though, I love that quote and need to post it on my wall!
Anyways, back to this look!
These comfy culottes totally steal this look and I have to say they are just as comfortable as they are stylish. Their merino wool, sweater-like material makes them incredibly soft and forgiving. Yet, they are still very sophisticated and could be worn in an office, or professional, setting as well. I love the cut of these pants. These culottes are very slimming, which I always love! The waist is cut higher and is cinched at the waist with a tie belt. Both of these features help to create a beautiful silhouette and really enhance your natural figure. Who doesn’t love that?!
This Tommie Merino Sweater, also from Club Monaco because we know my love for them is true, is so good! It comes in grey and black, but we all know how much I love black, so black it is for me! This sweater pairs perfectly with these culottes but it looks just as great with a good pair of denim. Lately, one of my go-to outfits has been this sweater, these jeans, and these booties! It’s like a match made if comfy, classic heaven! Throw in these sunnies and cute handbag and you have yourself the ultimate powerful woman outfit.
