Culottes. Just in time for Fall

Had I been blogging at all this Spring or Summer you would know that I am not really sold on culottes. It seems like something children in France can only get away with.  Or Victoria Beckham. 

But then I saw this 

It isn't everyday that unsuspected snail mail pleasantly surprises you these days (thanks greatplains.co.uk)!  I think it is a bit of a stretch to call these culottes. I would categorize them more accurately as as wide leg ankle length pants, but the internet says these count too, so I am going with it.

For me this is exactly what I want to be wearing for fall right now. 

If you still can't get your head around culottes, a bit more food for thought from the street including the woman who wears them so well.....
