The Look: Crochet & Culottes

feeding rock wallabies


Hippy can still be haute. Mis-match a crochet bralet with some flowy culottes and a fedora for a more polished vibe.

Today I take you on a rain forest adventure and introduce you to some of my favorite marsupials...

If you've got to this point, your brain is probably screaming something along the lines of 'awwww nawww naww lil furry kangaroos, maaahhh **insert inaudible noises**'. Introducing my furry, little friend: the rock wallaby.

Although these wallabies are wild, they love people and actually eat from the palm of your hand! At one point, I was literally surrounded by about 10 of them. It was the most amazing and most terrifying thing, as they started hissing at each other, much to the amusement of my other half. However, the ultimate funny moment had to be a little wallaby pulling on the bottom of my culotte legs with his hands, as if to say 'Please Sir, can I have some more'.

Now that our zoology lesson is over, let's talk about bralets. Is it just me, or have bralets gotten themselves a bit of a reputation for being overtly sexy? Being the least sexiest person ever, I've sort of avoided them with a ten foot pole. That is, until I found this gorgeous, crochet number. With a slightly longer length that doesn't scream 'look how many planks I've done', it's totally suitable for everyday wear without passers by raising a judgemental eyebrow at you.

I teamed it with the culottes to be totally random. You know those moments when you think that something won't work and then it will. I think it sometimes pays to just randomly pick two pieces out of your wardrobe and try them together. Sometimes you will look like you've stolen the contents of your local weirdos wardrobe and got dressed in the dark, other times people will look at you and think 'how did she think of putting those two things together?' And it's totally worth it for the latter effect.

  13. Oh my gosh those wallabies are so cute!! Fantastic pictures. And I love your bralet, it's simple but still chic. It's a piece you can wear and feel comfortable in and that important. I'm still hunting for that perfect bralet myself. By the way your culottes are so amazing, I love the colour.

  39. Yes, dear Rachel, the crochet top and the culottes are the perfect match! I love it, it is genius and I know what you mean with such unexpected combinations :) Both pieces work really wonderfully together. But: for sure you are sexy! And I love the cute pictures and your beauty on them. That this little wallaby asked for me made me smile. Thanks for sharing this sweet story.
    If you celebrate it: already today happy Easter!

  40. Oh my gosh, I can absolutely imagine one of the kangaroos pulling at your culottes (loving the Oliver Twist reference haha). The crochet top you're wearing is so perfect and totally reminiscent of any travel programme I've ever seen on Australia!!
