Pinafore Wars

You know the old addage - you wait for one pinafore, and a few come along at once? No? You've not?

Well, it should a saying because that seems to be what has happened in A/W15 collections!!

When I first spotted this pinafore in plain black, I hopped to it, teaming it with my hot pink, lip print shirt for full impact!!!


I love the adjustable strap detail, meaning you can adjust to different bust sizes.

My one criticism is that it is rather short - a definite 'wear with leggings' category!


But the cuteness level makes it very worth it!!

The pockets are a great touch too. 

I opted for the 24 (so my size), and found the waist to be snug, and it sits directly on my waist, so if you're not as hourglass you might want to size up. 

I'#m looking forward to wearing this with shirts and tshirts alike, with leggings and my biker boots in the colder months.

I was rather content with this addition to my wardrobe, until the denim, skater skirt pinafore dress came out!!


I work in an office where there is a slightly more casual, casual Friday. I have found this to be my go-to basis for my 'casual Friday' outfit if I'm having a crisis of casual proportions! 

Again, I've found this to be a little short, but remember I'm 5'10 so short comes with the territory. The straps aren't as adjustable as the previous pinafore, and have had to cross them over at the back to make them a little bit shorter.

Again, I'm wearing a size 24 here, and the waist doesn't quite sit on my waist, but I feel the fit 'works' okay. 

One word: POCKETS.

My wardrobe has gone from being lacking in the pinafore department, to now having two! 

It's a shame that the first one can only be worn with leggings, as I would have liked it as a 'business dress' appropriate option, whereas I feel they are both casual, weekend pieces.

Much love,

  1. You look fab in both! I've been debating the sprinkle of glitter one and was worried about the length (5ft 11 over here) so this gives me hope! I love the pinafore trend so much I'm rocking one right now at work hehe x

  2. I love this look on you. I prefer the denim one on you. You look amazing in it😍😍😍 I've considered the denim one myself as it looks so nice. I'm just a bit worried that the denim fabric at the front won't be big enough for my boobs. I've got the olive green one from Asos and that is lovely,but it's a bit long on me. But other than that it's perfect. I might just have it turned up. X x x
