There are many mornings when I put on an outfit I selected the night before, take my pictures for the blog, and then change up outfit details before I go out the door.  Somehow the process of photographing my outfit makes me re-think the “look” of the day.

With this ensemble, it was only once I got dressed that I remembered the problem with these culottes – fun pattern, great price when I bought them, BUT unflattering with a tucked-in top. Wearing a wide belt helped, but I was still dissatisfied.  Just the same I left for work without making any changes.  Around midday when the weather warmed up and I took off the jacket, I finally figured it out.  I untucked the chambray shirt (long shirttail) and put the belt over the shirt – voila! No pictures of this change, but next time I’ll remember how to wear these culottes successfully!

      Edye – Thanks very much. I bought them the year before striped culottes became a “thing” – probably paid $15 at Zara! Jeanne
