Be Cool(ottes)

Be cool(ottes)! I was so close to not using a pun on this post. Lucky for you guys I have no will power. 

Within the past year culottes have become one of my favorite pieces. They can be dressed up or down, they can be real flattering, they can keep you cool, and styling them can sometimes be a challenge- which is super fun. However, I actually love this outfit because it was super easy to put together, yet the culottes make it look stylish. I've worn this outfit to class and work and felt comfy yet confident. Also in case you're lucky enough not to be in the south this summer, I'll have you know that it's already freakin' hot and humid. So of course flowy pants are my best friend in this weather. Like I've mentioned before, summer is my least favorite season to style for so I greatly appreciate having cute pieces that I can just throw on. 

I have to thank the lovely Chris Gardner for today's photos. I got to walk around Downtown Durham for the first time with this guy and these awesome photos are the result! I still haven't explored the majority of North Carolina so this was a treat. I'm sure you're sick of hearing this, but Chris is an exceptional photographer. I'm always beyond pleased with the outfit photos he takes and don't even get me started on the rest of his Instagram feed. 

Hope everyone enjoys the first weekend of summer!
