Cruising in Culottes

Culottes might be my newest favorite pant style. However, I realize now that this style pant has been ingrained in my style library since I was a little girl. My mother wore this style pant all the time and she always styled them so effortlessly. I can totally see why she loved them so much. Culottes aren’t really a skirt but have that same flowy-ness to them with the comfort of sweatpants. Sounds like a match made in heaven.

These pants are perfect for the cruise I’m on this week. I’m off with celebrating my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary cruising through the Caribbean. It’s been a fun week so far with a lot of organized chaos - there are 18 of us between the in-laws, my husbands brothers, their kids, and the wives. But it’s pretty typical when the entire family gets together.

I’m also excited to be celebrating July 4th on the cruise. They’ve got a bunch of festivities planned and we brought our patriotic spirit with some door decorations with the American flag and all of the red, white, and blue clothing I own.
