We’ve been so unbelievably lucky with the weather in London so far this Summer (I hope I haven’t just jinxed it!). I can’t remember the last time I didn’t wake up to bright blue skies and the heat hitting me when I walk out the door each morning! I’ve definitely noticed the difference in people’s moods in the office when the sun is shining. Everyone seems more proactive and uplifted. I love it and hope it lasts for as long as possible!
The only issue with this heat is surviving the commute into work, which for me I’m quite lucky with and always manage to grab a seat. I also don’t have to brave the underground tubes which I’m beyond thankful for! Despite this, I still have to factor in what I’m wearing each morning to make sure I’m kept cool and comfortable by the time I get to the office.
I’ve developed an obsession with culottes recently, and they’re now my go-to for hot Summer days. The wide leg and looser fit make it easier to move around and remain comfortable during the day. I’m always a bit conscious in skinny trousers at work and find I always have to think about how I’m positioned for them to look good, but I don’t have that problem at all with culottes.
I picked up these striped culottes a couple of weeks ago and have already worn them at least 3 times, mix and matching them with tops and blouses to create different outfits. This cream blouse is made from a light, satin material but isn’t see through – YAY! Why is it so hard to finds tops that don’t show your underwear? I almost did a little dance when I tried it on, and immediately picked it up in the navy version too. Two staple tops that will see me through the years.
I’ve rounded up 19 of my favourite culottes for the office below. Happy shopping!
