Yellow culotte & Fancy Friday linkup

wearing yellow culottes

Isn’t this a surprise, trousers, in the form of a culotte, and wearing yellow! I’ve never found yellow to be a pretty color. And black and yellow was for me always a very ugly combination. The football club from my hometown wears black/yellow so I always associated the colours with that club. I thought yellow and white was super ugly. Those are the colors of an egg! And there’s something nasty about an egg……only not when I’m in England and I get it on a plate with  fried bread, tomato and bacon! But…..well you already felt it coming of course. I am wearing a black, yellow and white outfit! I think this is a lovely combination!

How I wear my yellow culotte

wearing black, white and yellow together

I started with the culotte. I’m still a fan of those kind of trousers. I remember when I bought my first culotte years ago. Couldn’t get used to it. But I liked them so much on others and I love cropped trousers, but I didn’t feel good in a culotte myself. Until I gave it another chance and bought this pied de poule culotte and I fell in love with them. And when I saw this yellow one, I decided to give it a shot. These culottes are high waisted and very comfortable. Perfect to wear a cropped tee on it.

I also saw a very nice top in black and thought: I just order it and I’ll see if it works together for me. The top is actually something I didn’t wear anymore, because first of all I really like symetry and this neckline is uneven. It’s also off shoulder which actually annoys the hell out of me. And there are hardly any sleeves on and I have very ugly upper arms. And you know what! I just don’t care. (not today anyway) I think it’s a beautiful top and I love the combination with the culotte. Life is too short to care about anything. (look who’s talking….)

Then I added this gorgeous blazer. My first intention was to wear a black blazer, but no I stepped out of my comfort zone here. This one is from Zara and you might have seen it before. Blazers by Zara have a perfect cut! I am very happy with this black yellow and white combination and I also wear the culotte with a white tee and white sneakers and not feeling like a egg at all. I am very curious how you think these colours look on me.

    I has a pair of yellow culottes just like this, in my 20s. Happy memories! Yellow and black looks good with white, as you’ve shown. Have a good weekend!

    You wear this so well Nancy! I have heard so many good things about Zara blazers but I have not had a chance to try them myself, I want to! I am loving that black blouse too – looks so good on you!

    Very chic color block styling on your outfit, Nancy! I love your culottes-yellow is such a happy color, and the outfit looks great on you! Thanks for commenting on my blog-it’s nice to know that a fellow blogger also has a love πŸ’• of mid-century pottery! Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the link up!

    Glad you were able to get past your sports team and egg associations to put together this sharp, high drama outfit! I really like the sandals with it.

    Love these bright yellow trousers on you, and you styled them perfectly with black and white. I have the same thing with my hometown sports teamsβ€”I have trouble wearing blue and gold together for the same reason!

    Like you, I never wore much yellow – and yellow and black reminds me of the Flemish flag, and its Nationalist connotations – and then I married a man whose favourite colour is yellow. Now I often wear yellow, although still not as much as I do other colours. Those culottes are gorgeous, though, I’m really loving this outfit! xxx P.S. Still chuckling about the egg comparison though, and I too love a good English breakfast πŸ™‚

      Haha, of course you do!! I got a lot of compliments irl, wearing these trousers. I think people get cheerful of yellow!

    I am like you…I don’t usually like black and yellow together because they remind me of a bumblebee. But, one of my favorite dresses when I was young was black, white and yellow! I think you look gorgeous in this outfit…and I really like that off the shoulder top (though I don’t wear them either)! Thanks so much for the link party!

    Nancy, you are hilarious! Your ideas about yellow have been updated and changed with these magnificent Boss Lady Yellow Trousers! I love them and think you look fantastic. As you may have noticed from your pink nail polish, pink is a really good colour with yellow, as is orange and green (I like turquoise too). Try different things with the trousers and push yourself outside your comfort zone.

    Thanks for the link-up! I have a big post up from yesterday, so please know that whenever you see a comment from me, there will always be at least one post! πŸ™‚

    Ooh Nancy, I love this outfit! It is so bright and bold cheerful! I never really liked black and yellow together either. These were my high school colors and I always felt like a bumblebee when I had to wear the colors! But I am really liking the color combination in this gorgeous outfit! Happy weekend, my friend. And thanks for the feature!

    I never wear yellow. It doesn’t work for me. But, these bright culottes look sophisticated when paired with your black top and white blazer. It’s a great summer look on you!
