Crazy culottes

These over sized culottes are totally gorgeous, but somehow being culottes there seems to be this need in me to have them recognised as such. While Polly was snapping away I was checking if you could tell that they weren't just looking like a long floppy skirt. Why is that important? I don't really know, apart from seeing a skirt that length as a bit granny-ish. Which is ridiculous, of course, as who could possibly mistake me, a woman of 57, as being a granny? 
Anyway, I bought them in the Topshop sale last summer and am aware that I've only worn them a couple of times, so have decided that this may not be the only time you'll see them. I want to style them up differently to prove to myself, if no-one else, that culottes can be quite versatile. And for once, the almost constant element of an island breeze comes into it's own when you need said culottes to blow about and be seen for what they truly are!
