Sporting my new favs again! Wow, I think this may be the 1st time I’ve ever worn the same shoes in 2 back-to-back posts! I didn’t feel like wearing heels or styling this jumpsuit dressy so I opted for a flat shoe. The flat shoe makes the look more casual and relaxed plus it saves my that were a bit sore after wearing those YSL boots in this post (it was a long night on my feet, ugh!). I think my feet just need to get used to heels again after wearing flats all Summer. We will just have to see about that! Well, thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

Sunday: Love these high waist culottes! They’re a little bit too tight for my taste but they’ll work. I always try everything on, especially bottom pieces, because manufacturers/brands/designers all cut their clothes differently. Meaning, a size 6 in one brand is sometimes not that same size 6 in another brand. Even within the same brand you might wear two different sizes. Also, nowadays, designers/brands are usingĀ  vanity sizing. This is when the item of clothing is really one size (a size 10, for example) but they put a size 8 on the label. This is done to basically make the customer not feel as bad about their size and think that they really are a size smaller. Quite sneaky, right? So, needless to say, that’s one reason why I try everything on. The other reason is that just because I like how something looks on the hanger doesn’t necessarily mean that I will like how it looks on me. Ok, so the reason why these culottes don’t fit how I really would like them to is because I had already done a fitting room run and was checking out when I came across a few more pieces that I had to have. So because I didn’t have any time left to try them on, I just grabbed them and checked out. I digress! I styled them with this quirky printed button down and a simple pair of ankle strap sandals to show a little skin and not cut my legs off too much. Culottes are still very of the moment for the Fall/Winter so pull out the ones you already have or go by some new ones. They’re in all the stores! I hope you had a great 1st weekend of Fall! God Bless!
