(Pinafore Dress: Miss Selfridge/Blouse: H&M/Headband: Primark)
I've been lusting over a pinafore style dress for ages now and saw this dress on, Miss Selfridge just before Christmas. However, it was £39 pounds so that kinda put me off, especially so near to the festive period. I made it my mission to find one similar in the sales. Luckily, I found the exact same one that I wanted hidden within the mounds of clothes on the Miss Selfridge sale rails and it was in my size and the only one left! I don't think I've ever been so happy, as I never really enjoy sales shopping at all. To top it all off, it went down from £39 to £20 and as I have student discount, I got this beauty for a bargainous £18.
I love pinafore dresses because of the fact you can layer different tops/jumpers underneath, like I have done with my H&M blouse and it's beautiful embellished collar. Plus, the pinafore style is quite versatile - you can wear this look to work, out and about or out partying depending on what you wear with it underneath.
To keep with the Silver/Grey cool tones, I thought jewellery would be too much with the collar so I wore this spiked Primark headband which was also super cheap at £1 (or £1.50) I can't remember exactly. It adds a different texture and, 'edge' to this typically girly outfit. I wore this to a birthday party so also wore heeled brogues.
Is anyone else loving the pinafore look?
Also, I'd just like to say I'm really grateful to all those new people that have followed my blog recently, I'm really happy that people want to actually read what I have to write! I've gained quite a lot of followers in the last few weeks so thanks! :-)
