There’s nothing better than a walk round Hyde Park catching Pokemon and then a gelato treat in Soho am I right?! Especially when the weather is 28 degrees in the shade and you’re melting faster than your aforementioned sugary treat.
Well actually, sitting on your sofa in a onesie eating cookies in front of the TV with your housemate while you wait for the new series of Made in Chelsea is pretty damn sweet too. But that is not what this post is about. It’s not actually about gelato either but if any of you are ever around Soho and find yourself wandering down Archer street, look out for Gelupo and give your tastebuds a treat, I promise you won’t regret it.
This post is really all about the wide leg trousers/culottes (did I even spell that right?!) situation I’ve got going on in these pictures. Now this isn’t their first appearance on the blog, you may remember this post where I introduced them in my first ever lookbook video, but they’ve never really had an outfit post all of their own. I wasn’t even going to buy them if I’m honest – being about two foot tall means you have to be incredibly careful with whatever you wear on your bottom half for fear of resembling a garden gnome – these trousers however do all of the flattering and give me none of the gnome-ifying that I tried so hard to avoid.
I also love the fact that they’re made of the thinnest material ever. Not so great when the UK essentially turns into the South Pole come September, but in the current climate they’re all kinds of perfect for keeping me cool on sweaty tubes and boiling Pokemon hunting trips.
Totally unrelated but I caught a Meowth the other day and I seriously need to boast about it somewhere, so y’know, I choose here.
ANYWAY how would you style culottes? Hit me up in the comments below (hit me up?! seriously what am I?!) and let me know!

Guys it’s that time of year again when the Blogger’s Blog Awards has rolled around!

Any nomination would be perfect but I’d especially love to be nominated in the Fashion or Vlogger/YouTuber categories <33 You can vote by clicking here
