I never thought culottes would be for me, much less linen ones. I found the boxy silhouette intimidating, on top of which most culottes tend to cut off my leg length, something I definitely don't need at my rather petite frame (I'm only 5'3). I don't know what happened but as I was browsing through Pinterest, I found the trend really growing on me! I found a pair that wasn't quite as wide-legged and with a hem that didn't hit me at an unflattering length. I got these particular culottes from LOFT on sale for $14! I really like how breezy the linen is, especially considering how sweltering hot it's been here in DC. 


I dug out this tank from the back of my closet. While I love this tank, I've never really worn it on its own. I've always covered it up with either a cardigan or a blazer. I thought about throwing this out in my "to-donate" pile when I did my closet cleanout but I just could not bring myself to do so. So in return, I decided to wear this tank more so that I can feel like it earned its keep haha.  


In other news, I cut my hair! It's a bit shorter but I really like it! Some of my longtime readers may remember a time when I had really long hair. Those days may be long gone because I've been making a lot of attempts to keep my hair short! It's really low maintenance and my one bottle of shampoo goes so much farther now haha.
