As you might have seen, I’ve been to Amsterdam last week and of course I had to do a little bit of shopping. As we don’t have a Primark in Switzerland it was the one shop on my list I really wanted to have a snoop around. And oh boy did they have some amazing stuff. After an hour or two I found some new trousers (floral culottes) and a couple of shirts.
Stepping out my comfort zone
When I saw these beautiful trousers I just had to try them on. I’ve never worn culottes before but admired them from a distance. First I wasn’t to keen on them, once I paired it with a loose white shirt I knew that was it – I had to get them. Trying new things and stepping out your comfort zone is something everybody should do from time to time. You might even find some new loves, like I did with culottes.
How to style your culottes
Styling the floral culottes is quite easy. Because of the print I went with a plain shirt. This time around I paired it with a white loose t-shirt tucked into the pants. (A black shirt would look great too). The shoes are one of my fave flats. They are black leather and give every outfit a sophisticated touch. For a night out or a lunch date you could accessories the outfit with a pink clutch matching to the flowers on the pants.
Top – Primark Culottes – Primark
Clutch – Primark Shoes – Tods
Stepping out my comfort zone with my floral culottes was the best decision ever, now I’m gutted I didn’t get some more! As these trousers are so light and airy they are perfect for this warm spring weather and if you get cold you can just throw on a jacket. This year around I always reach for my trusty jeans jacket.

These look so cool on you!! Can’t believe they’re from Primark, they look like they’re from Zara or somewhere much more expensive! x
Thanks so much Tereza. I know I was as shocked (in a good way) as you were. They look and actually feel really nice too. xx

They are so comfy. It’s like I’m wearing pyjama trousers but they’re actually not. xx

Thanks Nida! I can’t wait to experiment more with the trousers and style them with other tops and shoes. xx

Thanks Nita. xx
Oh my gosh I looooove culottes and those ones are beautiful! Love how you styled them, perfect for this time of year 🙂
Thanks so much Sophie! I wanna go out and buy some more now. xx
I love culottes so much and practically live in them during Spring/ Summer. I just want it to get warmer now so I can get them out again. I love your floral ones, and agree that pairing with a plain white tee is a great look!
I love how you stepped out of your comfort zone to try a new style! That’s what it’s all about 🙂
