[thots] trend: culottes, love them? hate them? how to wear them?

In this fashion desert known as Irvine, CA, a stay home mum has to have strong enough will power not to follow the Lululemon-wearing trend running mundane errands and I truly, wholeheartedly, hope that I can stay determined!

Very much at the opposite ends of the spectrum to skin tight yoga wear, culottes are baggy, airy garments that hangs like a skirts but are actually trousers. Wikipedia tells me they originated from the early C19, were worn by European upper class and the word itself is French. 

Culottes are a bit like marmite I think, you either love it or hate it.. either way they have been back for a few years now and be it winter or summer I feel that they are here to stay~
