Lani Loves: Culottes and Cos

 


What I am loving this week.

Or what I just bought.

More often than not, both.

 

While there are certain trends I won't touch this season (athletic slides/overalls/birkenstolks), this is one I can, and will, get on board with. Culottes. Yes, you heard me right. I'm going there.

Random aside, culottes translates commonly as panties in French. They were also the name given to the short breeches worn by French aristocracy. The revolutionaries were referred to as 'les sans-culottes' because they adopted the pants of the people, rather than the upper class.

I saw this shot of Kate Hudson rocking a pair of culottes the other day and had a knee jerk reaction. The tank, the peek-a-boo flirty bra, the culottes, all easy, breezy, and sophisticated. 

My quest for culottes led me to Cos. The fancier sister brand of H&M that launched this spring. I'm kind of sad I didn't check it out sooner. Les culottes have landed at home and I am impressed with the cut, fabric and overall quality. Cos, worth the time. And the Culottes.

Vive les culottes!

Beaching Those Final Summer Days

Above: Cover up via Khatu/I Am Khatu/Etsy, J Crew Liberty bikini, Forever 21 fedora/old (loving these woven fedoras from Persifor), Ray ban sunglasses

 

I guess I should get to the rest of my pics from Nantucket before the summer is over, huh? Also, welcome to the new format of my outfit posts. Part weekly round up, part outfit, part planner.

   

 

Who: As in, who am I listening to. That would be Future Islands, Seasons (Waiting on You) and Hamilton Leithauser, Alexandra.

What: As in, what went down this weekend. I enjoyed some much needed girl/shopping time. Scored some great fall fashion (these cool boots from Acne and these Frame jeans to be exact). I'm excited to head to NYC in a few weeks, catch up with some old friends, and maybe catch a little fashion.

Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about. 

Madewell launched new stores at Legacy Place and Derby Shoppes. May the denim commence.

Semi-Annual Sale, still kicking at Hudson runs through September 7.

Register for Ann Taylor's Fall Fashion Bash with bloggers Holly, of Holly Dolly and Katherine of Style Tab, August 28, 6-8 PM.
