Dress code : Culottes

Discovering new places often means that you can be a little unsure about the dress code. 
For our first evening in Carmona, I wanted to ensure that I could remain cool but without revealing too much flesh. Firstly as I was yet to catch the sun, but more importantly because Carmona is a traditional Spanish village and I didn’t think that my mini lace hot pants would go down terribly well with the locals! An elegant but demure option which I’d packed on a bit of a whim are these rust coloured crepe culottes from . I’d been a little nervous to try out culottes but the gorgeous subtle colour of the New Look pair (and the fact that they are under £20!) gave me the perfect opportunity to see if I could pull off the style. The culottes have a beautiful drape and movement when you wear them, which you can see for yourself in my Carmona Outfit Diaries video here!
If you’re petite like me, it’s helpful to find some heeled sandals to wear with culottes, and I chose my favourite summer-lovin sandals from. Although the culottes take centre stage in this holiday outfit-of-the-day, my favourite piece from this look is the incredibly versatile cami top which I picked up from . It seems to go with everything, whether it’s embellished shorts or a pair of denim jeans – it’s a wardrobe essential. 
I became such a fan of this outfit while on our weekend away that I even wore it during our (mini!) heatwave last weekend in the UK with a little blazer to pop over my shoulders for some extra warmth during those shady moments.

You can see this outfit, and the others that I wore on our weekend in Seville in my latest video!
