Culottes and self-made snake print blouse – Culotes e blusa padrão réptil feita por mim


Hello my lovelies, hope you’re doing well! Today I wanted to wear my Mother’s Day gift (the necklace plus earrings set in rose gold) and I constructed the whole outfit around it opting for tan/earthy tones. In case you don’t know, culottes are a hit this spring, and I do love this trend because it reminds me of the midi skirts, only in pants version. To compensate the leg-shortening effect of the culottes, I prefer them high-waisted and worn with heels . The snake print wrap blouse was made by me a few years ago (click here for the sewing review) and I haven’t been wearing it for a while; I’m very happy to have included it in today’s outfit, it makes it more unique in my opinion. 
 
Happy Wednesday to all and thank you for visiting!

Bom dia meus queridos, espero que estejam bem! Hoje queria estrear a minha prenda do Dia da Mãe (o colar/medalha e brincos a condizer em rosa dourado), como tal o conjunto foi construído em torno destes acessórios. Caso não saibam as culotes são uma das peças-chave desta estação e eu vou aderir a esta tendência que me agrada bastante; a culote é como uma saia “midi”, mas em versão calça! No entanto este tipo de peça curta e larga tende a dar o efeito visual de encurtar a perna; para contrariar esse efeito prefiro as culotes de cintura subida e de preferência usá-las com saltos altos. A blusa de atar estampado réptil foi feita por mim há uns anos (cliquem aqui para o artigo de costura) e já não a usava há bastante tempo; fiquei contente por tê-la incluído no conjunto de hoje, acho que o valorizou e deu-lhe um toque mais exclusivo!
 
Uma boa Quarta-feira para todos e obrigada por visitarem!

    1. Thanks Diana! I've been sewing since I was 12, I'm self-taught and sewing is something that relaxes me,... I couldn't live and be happy without it :)

  5. Tany forgot to tell you, the skirt isn't beige it's a kinda stone_ish color, like greige you know gray/ beige, funny color anyway. I bought the skirt at H&M it's from this season and it's still in store, at least here it is, though.

    1. Hey Lenya! I went to H&M today and they had restocked both S and M sizes... Size M (my usual) was too large on me while the S was a little too short because the hem ended at the widest part of my knee and I think it would be more flattering otherwise... So I ended up not buying the skirt. I will go fabric hunting as soon as I get a chance and will make my own skirt... Thank you so much for your help honey, I really appreciate it!

  7. Hello my gorgeous Tany!
    Your outfit is amazing, love every bit of it, especially your precious gift! It is very pretty and looks fantastic with this outfit. I love culottes as well, I think they are very comfy and look more stylish than just a skirt in that shape, Tany, you look just beautiful and very elegant! Lots of love to my sweetie, kisses and hugs! <33333333333333

    1. Thank you so much my dearest friend! Today I didn't post my outfit because I had too much to deal with at work and wasn't in the mood... Hope tomorrow will be a better day for me :). Tonight I'm taking some time to catch up on replying to comments, since I'm so behind on this task... It's increasingly difficult conciliating my blogging activities with my work and my role as a caring mother... The only time left for me is a couple of hours after I put Henrique to sleep and I end up using that time either to reply to comments or to catch up on my blog roll... I need 48 hours in a day!
      Many hugs darling, lots of love to you <333333333

  8. Yes Tany the skirt has texture like horizontal stripes, to me those stripes looks like kind of waves. I hope you can grab one. It seems the skirt is sold out online. My finger are crossed Tany. Good luck.

    1. Hey Lenya, that's the skirt! Thank you for the link, I was able to confirm it! Too bad H&M doesn't provide online shopping in Portugal :(((((... My only chance is finding it in the store if they restock my size (38)
      Many hugs and thanks a LOT, darling!!!

    2. You're welcome Tany. What a bummer that you can't shop online. But I was browsing through the Portuguese website and spotted wide leg satin pants, so that's on my shopping list for Friday. And I will have a look at the things you bought that's for sure ;-) I was thinking about the gray kimono conscious collection but it has no pockets and that's a no no for me, I need something to put my hands into, lol. Good luck Tany. My finger are still crossed.
      kisses

  11. Hello my dear! So that beautiful little cutie was your son! There's a glimpse of my daughter in some of my pictures too! I love culottes, I find it hard to wear them where I live, but of course this won't stop me! I agree they must be high waisted, they have a very flattering effect. You did a great job with the shirt, and I love the whole outfit colours. Your comments are always heartfelt, thank you so much for that!

  12. Hi Tany, I am so honoured to read your wonderful comments, you are one of the kindest people I know here in cyberspace. Your sewing skills get more impressive by the day, this blouse is so professional and looks like it came off the rack from a very expensive boutique, you make culottes seem so effortless and elegant to wear, I sadly dont have the height to pull it off. Your gift of the jewellery set is so pretty. Have a Fantastic Friday!

  13. Gee my long post just vanished into thin air :-( So here we go again. I am not a big fan of ordering online from H&M because of their incalculable sizes. It's the only brand I need to try at least three different sizes. Take my today skirt for an example, it's size XS and it fits like a dream, I tried the very same skirt in size S and it was too tight, couldn't close the button. As there was no other size S but a size XS which is smaller than S I know, but by the look of it I could see it looks at least a bit bigger than size S, I went again to the fitting room, well it fits like a dream. I have this happen time and again with H&M items, often the same size is different. Another thing why I don't like ordering online from H&M is that the items mostly arrived creased, totally creased so you need to iron them, but some clothes are not to iron, though. To make a long story short (yeah I know I babble far too much) I never order online at H&M when I can help it. I hope you'll find the material you want Tany.
    big hugs sweetie

    1. I see what you mean, Lenya; H&M only opened its store here quite recently but from my little experience sizing is an issue. Our local store is also limited collection wise, it' doesn't get the premium quality clothes... In spite of these limitations they practice good prices and I love visiting H&M hunting for real bargains!
      Big hugs to you too, darling!
