Bright Culotte and a Standout Topper



"Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth, because I’m happyyyyyyyy" in my Pharell voice…

Those bleak mid Winter days when the weather forecast says ‘cold’ or the weather guy/chick’s voice bellows out 'be sure to bring your umbrellas, it will be a level 3 storm today; Also expect gusty winds and freezing temps' are great reminders that Spring is still a ways from us. Sigh. Would be nice to light some candles, cozy up under the covers with a latte and just listen to the rain. I love doing just that.
But if you got stuff to do and are a fashionista that loves to sashay down the streets (your very own personal runway) then don’t let the cold, wet, slippery and dark days deter you. Breakout a <<you guessed it>>, a bright standout coat and face nature square in the face. Makes solid sense right? ‘Nature ain't got nuffin on you’ after all . Ok get serious Idu, hehe. But honestly, nothing would brighten your day quite as much. 

Culottes have been having a moment in fashion, tricky as they are to pull off. They haven't been much of a fashion fixation for me as good ole midi pencil skirts have been, in fact I own only three - a grey, a blue and this yellow. However, my day was doubly brightened by the bright yellow culotte paired with a standout orange topper. If you think I stopped at those, you’ve got another think coming cos yours truly also wore brights on her feet. Wait a minute, isn’t yellow also considered the color of happy? Think 'happy feet' then, literally :)). 

All in all, a very upbeat look. And you better believe the happy created by the brights was contagious. I shot in front of my home and not a neighbor drove by that was too much in a hurry to smile big smiles, wave big waves and say kind words. My happy rubbed off on them I guess.

Hug the happy? Me? Nah! I’m not selfish like that and want to spread the happy to you. So I've surfed around and found similar culottes and some great standout toppers that will help bring on y’all's happy as well. Click away, thank me later now! #youarewelcome. Hehe..

  93. Seeing you outside like this would have made me smile big time for sure. It has been bright and sunny around here, which I love along with the freezing cold, but the weeks before that, when it was all grey and cold, I could have done with some yellow in my wardrobe.
