Culottes: Cute or Curious?

 Culotte Shorts: Zara // Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs // Bracelets: Forever 21 // Blouse: Madewell // Shoes: Shoemint // Necklace: The Hudson Bay Company // Sunglasses: Aldo // Watch: Skagen // Earrings: vintage

When I was small, I wore culottes not to be cool but as a practical solution to my tomboyish ways, which often resulted in dirty clothing, scraped knees, and decidedly unfeminine mannerisms. As a result, I was forced to maintain some semblance of girlhood by wearing shorts that looked like skirts. Looking at me now, I agree that it is a little hard to believe that I once spurned dresses for my brothers' hand-me-downs, but I assure you that it's the truth! Over the years, I guess I realized just how fun it was to play dress up. 
Moving on, I recently discovered that Zara had found a way to make culottes look quite amazing. After seeing these shorts on more than a few of my favourite bloggers, I knew that I had to have this piece. During a long and productive shopping trip with the boyfriend yesterday, I stalked and found the last XS size of these shorts at the Richmond Centre Zara- victory! Do you think they were worth the hunt?
