#FASHIONFRIDAYS | Gingham Culottes






So I turned 21 on Tuesday and now I'm officially old. I mean I know I'm not but when all your friends are just turning 19, it makes you feel like the oldest biddy going. Anyway, seeing as all my friends are abroad, working or simply live half way across the country, I spent my birthday shopping and then spent the evening with family. 

I picked up four things on my trip - my Olympus Pen E-PL8 aka my newborn child, a NYX eye shadow that you will see in action in Sundays video, a hand mask for my over worked hands and a bloody beautiful pair of gingham culottes from Zara.

As soon as I bought them I knew they had to be featured in this weeks #fashionfridays post. They're definitely a bit 'out there' for me but styled with a simple bodysuit from Topshop that I picked up in the sale a while back and some minimalist strappy sandals - I let the culottes to all the talking.

They have a really nice paper bag waist detailing that be accentuated by the tie-up fabric, which is super flattering. Depending on how you style them, they can be worn both for evenings and day-time -  just throw on a denim jacket and swap the heels for some flat sandals.
