Ways to wear: Black Pinafore


Pinafore     //     Polka dot shirt    //    Jeffrey Campbell Coltranes     //     Spiked necklace     //     socks     //     red crop top     //     mac russian red     //     bag     //     tights

I have to say sorry again everybody, I feel like I keep taking these mini blogger breaks! I'm just so busy at the minute and I'm being given lots of hours in Debenhams; which I'm really happy about as you probably all know by now I'm saving for a car. I had planned an outfit post for today, but I didn't realize how hard it is to take outfit photos #blogger problems.

Instead, I thought I'd dedicate a post to something I've really been loving at the minute; which is pinafores! I can't decide which I like best the more patterned/colourful ones or plain black; but I stuck with black for this purpose as it's the most versatile. If you do like any of the items all links are in the caption.

What do you think of pinafores and how I've styled it?

  37. I love pinafores, you may have noticed on my blog that I have a blue denim one, which I also paired with a black & white spotted top. I'd love a black one too because like you say it is versatile, but I'm not sure I really need 2 pinafores. Looking forward to seeing your outfit post x

  39. Dont worry about the blogger breaks, I can relate to it!! I also like the idea of pairing pinafores with blacks or whites on top, but I like your recommendations as well. Those cut out flatforms are just too gorgeous!
