Wide Leg Denim Culottes with Snakeskin Booties

Hello friends!

The heatwave many of us have experienced is finally easing up a bit, however, when these pictures were taken, it was 95 degrees. I still want to wear my boots, perhaps as a way to rebel against Mother Nature, or just because I feel like it! When I styled this mustard top and gold jewelry, I thought to take out my gold/brown snakeskin booties c/o Soft Surroundings last year.

My Outfit

I went shopping in H&M a few weeks ago and found this mustard crepe top for a mere $13. I do think the quality at H&M has gotten better, but it is one store in which I have to try on clothes. I most often wear an XS or S in tops there, and jacket, pants, are something I need to try on. I love this Fall shade, reminding me of the yellow from the fallen leaves.

I think of mustard as a color that looks great with golds, so my gold and brown snakeskin booties would be the boots of the day. I have been wanting to take these out for a spin! The slightly higher boot would go well with the cropped denim culottes I am quite fond of. I hope to do a post on jean styles for Fall soon, and if you want to show off your boots, these are a great choice! I love the released hem and the fact that the footwear also becomes the focus. Ankle jeans or step hem jeans would also have the same effect. I am wearing Wit and Wisdom jeans that you can find on Nordstrom’s site, but I got mine thrifting on Poshmark. I sized down, as they are stretchy, to a size 2. My regular jean size is a 4.

Other gold accents with the mustard top are my bauble dangling earrings, my gold cuff c/o Soft Surroundings and my gold ring.

My Brahmin bag was begging to come out from the pile of purses in my closet, and it is a favorite you will see much of on the blog. I need to start putting my purses higher in my closet, as my boy, Gibson is now routing through my bags! He figured if there were rawhides in one purse, maybe they are in all of them!

If you feel the need to add more print, add a scarf to the mix- I love to mix animal prints, so a leopard or snakeskin scarf would look great!

Are you someone who wears culottes? Would you be interested in learning about different styles of denim this Fall?

    Jess, this outfit is gorgeous! I love these jeans. And your snakeskin booties are gorgeous. I like that they are in brownish colors. My snakeskin booties are more grays and whites and blacks. Maybe I need another pair in a different color palette! And your bag is stunning. Everything…head to toe…of this outfit is just perfect! Thanks for linking up with me this week.

    I so want to be able to wear these pants! I’ve tried so many and even saw some white ones today that I loved but they just do not work for my current body.

      You can ! Maybe look for Wit and Wisdom as they are great jeans. White sounds wonderful in this style ! I havent thought about that, but would look great year round and in the summer show off the sandals. Thanks for popping by! I couldnt resist the steal at $25 bucks 🙂 Happy Monday

    I love culottes! I like how you added the booties with them. Then denim ones can be worn so many different ways. You look adorable.

      Hi Lisa, thank you so much! I didn’t realize when I bought the culottes how much I would wear them. It is fun to try new styles.

    Stylish as always Jess. I never thought about wearing my wide legs with booties. I’m going to give it a try! And I love that snake print. Lovely!!

    I really like your style. I love how you’ve styled the boots under the wide legged pants. I actually cut a pair of flair legged jeans to imitate the trend recently.

    Have a wonderful week 😊

      Hi Nancy, Good Monday afternoon! Thanks so much. I do 98% of my shopping online and the rest of the time is thrifting online via Poshmark, where I found the denim. It was fun to try a new style. I do love flares as well, but didn’t have any until recently, when I bought a pair of JBrand Lovetory jeans for $28. I look forward to seeing them on you.

    Snake print booties are everywhere and what I like about them is they are considered a neutral so they work with everything but also add great texture. Looking great Jess!

      Hi Deborah! Good to “see” you! Thank you. I know! I love the snakeskin print! I ihave seen other booties that are gorgeous with more brown tones- I do love the neutral factor as well. Long live leopard and snakeskin! 🙂

    Love this fabulous look Jess. I’m obsessed with those booties and bag! I see these wide legged slightly cropped pants but I’m afraid to try. Not anymore! I love the way you styled them.

      Thanks so much Phyllis! I get obsessed about wearing them! 🙂 I say give it a go! I wasn’t sure about them in the past, before I bought them, but then love the style!

    That would have been a warm look at 95 degrees lol! Yes to it finally starting to cool off! Each time I see you wear your ball earrings it reminds me of mine and the need to pull them out!

      Hi Mirielle
      I do wear these earrings often. I love gold and want to get some gold hoops or another pair of gold earrings. It was warm this weekend, but finally began of cool off in the 60s or so Sunday. Thank Goodness!

    What a beautiful fall outfit Jess! The snakeskin booties are eye catching and I adore your yellow sweater. It is one of the colors that I have been gravitating to recently. I hope your Monday is off to a great start!

      Hi Maureen!
      Thanks so much. The top is a lighter material, and I do gravitate toward mustard. I was looking forward to taking out my snakeskin boots 🙂 Enjoy your day as well!
