Winter Green


Happy Hump Day, Happy Friday Eve-Eve, Happy Wednesday! Whatever you call it, the weekend is almost here and I couldn't be happier. This week has been long, slow, and cold. So cold, so snowy.  Nothing new for New Jersey in February, though...

I'm traveling for work soon though and headed to warmer temps!  Not warm enough to break out my shorts, but warm enough to not wear a marshmallow coat outside.

Now on to my outfit. I was on Lulu's a few months ago, looking for a dress to wear to a wedding, and I stumbled on these pants. So, I bought them, obviously. I love the warm and winter-y color. I love the sweater material that the pants are made out of and I love that they're slightly baggy. Most of all, I love that they're a little different, and not something you'd see someone wearing everyday. Especially not at the office. 😉

The pants I'm wearing are called culottes. They're longer than shorts but shorter than your regular pants. Here's some advice for wearing culottes, especially if you're petite like me - definitely wear heels with your culottes to elongate your legs. If you're not into heels, try pointy toe flats. Also, make sure you're wearing a fitted top and tuck it in to accentuate your waist. Do you have culottes? 

  I kept my look mostly simple with a black turtleneck, nude heels, and a dark lipstick. I added some yellow earrings for an extra pop of color.

Thank you so much for reading! Have a great week!
