Style Trend: Culottes

Okay, I'm going to "date" myself a bit... Long ago, we used to call these "gaucho pants."  Now (I understand), they are known as "culottes"...

Nice thing is--they are back in vogue.  Even nicer, I had hung onto the pair I purchased about five years ago (when they were in style the last time)!

These photos were taken at a one of the local golf clubs.  It's the same one I meet at with local Zonta friends for lunch once a month.

Post pics, Mark and I headed off to the local event of the year: the Black Swamp Arts Festival.  Note the sweet bracelet to the right of my watch (in the photo below).  I bought it from one of the artisans displaying their wares there.  It's made from vintage sterling silverware (spoons, forks, etc.).

Amidst walking our quaint, historic Main Street district, and enjoying artistic inspiration galore, we stopped by a fave coffee house that also sells used books.  There, I picked up a copy of Marianne Williamson's The Age of Miracles.  Can't wait to give it a read!
