Pinafore* MeeMee / Jewellery Temporary:Secretary shop / Shirt River Island / Bag* F&F Clothing (Tesco)

In my previous post about the denim trend, I said that I’ve tried pinafore trend and I’m not too sure what I think. I’ve tried on a few in changing rooms but rather than magically transforming in to Alexa Chung at Coachella, they just make me look young and also frumpy. In most cases, it could possibly be because the top part of the garment is quite thin and the gathered waist gives the illusion that it’s top heavy. It probably doesn’t help that I’m wearing a white shirt underneath which only highlights this. I might wear it with a darker coloured shirt so it won’t be as visible. I’ve also made some changes to the straps on this one because they are far too long for me. A quick bit of sewing did the trick, though. I’ve tacked it up on the back and it fits much better now, with the straps lifted up. I am determined to make this work! Not a very Summery outfit but my vibrant necklace and colourful nails pep the outfit up a bit!

I always write about other brands here but never my own, so I think I’m going to fit in a couple of posts every month (if that!). I do show photographs of me wearing the jewellery in outfit posts but I don’t ever talk about the shop in the text content. I’ve always tried to separate the shop and the blog – I don’t know why – I suppose it’s because I want to keep my blog as something I want to enjoy outside of work. You know when something becomes work, it’s such a chore to do! Anyway, I don’t think new readers even know about the shop! So, a brief intro… If you like kitsch, fashion jewellery, then please  have a snoop at Temporary:Secretary shop, and as always, feedback is welcome! There are some new items in the shop including the bunting necklace and a special lucky dip bag where you can get 10 items for £10

Finally, before I go, something I’ve been wanting to ask for ages! I’d love for you to nominate my blog in the Cosmo Blog Awards! The category that best fits my blog would be Established Fashion. I don’t consider myself “established” but I think any blog that is older than a year will be classed under Established rather than Newcomer category. I don’t like asking for votes, as it does feel like a popularity contest, and I’ve never won those but it would be lovely to get even one nomination, really! Vote for your favourite blog here, whoever it may be! x

    This look is so so cute, I really want a smart looking pinafore! I have a skater style denim one but it's just not the same haha. Also loving that gorgeous bag 🙂

    It's weird because I've always stayed away from pinafores for the exact same reason, but even before reading what you said, I thought to myself "Wow, she really looks pinafores, they don't make her look childish or frumpy"!

    You look absolutely lovely! The pinafore looks perfect on you! And I love your bag! 🙂

    I would really appreciate it if you'd check out my latest outfit post 🙂

    This looks gorgeous on you, not frumpy at all 🙂 I think its a good idea to talk about your shop on here sometimes, its nice to keep them separate (rather than having this as a 'shop blog') because I love your style, but we also want to know how the shop is going, new items etc 🙂 xx

    I think this is such a good look, you can really dress the playsuit up and down, for work and play.. and even a night out!

    Love everything about this outfit! Effortlessly perfect!

    You are gorgeous! Seriously, so pretty. I love me a pinafore, and you styled it so well and this one fits you really well. I know what you mean though, pinafores always seem so big on the waist even if they are made in actual dress sizes not s/m/l!

    I love the pinafore dresses or playsuits in the shops right now but I agree I look like a kid when trying them on. I love looking young but I look 12 haha! I guess it depends what you style it with but this suits you 🙂

    This pinafore romper is the cutest thing ever! I love it paired with the simple white top. Your necklace is fantastic too. Just such an adorable outfit all around.

    Completely adore the whole outfit, so cute!xxx
