#WhatMamaWoreMonday Linkup:: Pinnafore Dress & Duffle Coat


Happy Monday one and all!

It’s #WhatMamaWoreMonday today and after a crazy busy week last Monday I’m super excited to see what lovely styles and outfits you’re all bringing this week!

Last week 230+ ladies joined in on the hashtag, both Romeca and I were so amazed by all you wonderful ladies! For the concept of #WhatMamaWoreMonday scroll to the linkup below

So this week i’m bringing a little pinafore number to the metaphorical style table. I have wanted a pinafore dress for so long, but i haven’t ever committed to it in worry that i would look like a Cbeebies presenter or just generally working with small children. Being tall and just having a bit of an old head on my shoulders i never felt i could totally pull this style off, deeming it “too young” or “too cutesy” for me, and yet absolutely loving it on every other lady i saw. I also factored in that i’m a pear shape and a lot of them just didn’t fit right on my shape, same with dungarees sadly.

So when i saw this one on the Sainsbury’s website i thought i’d give it a go. The nipped in waist and deep v front is what works for me allowing my more than ample hips to fit and my smaller waist to be catered for also.

I love it. I love it with the yellow top as i’ve been craving some yellow of late (Um sunshine, do you even exist anymore?!), but can see me wearing it in summer with a black and white tee or red and white, spot and dots or just plain. I love the idea of it with bare legs and tan sandals come summer too, but for now i had to don some tights as its still the depths of winter over here. I went for grey as black felt like it could be a little harsh, and i was quite pleased with the softness of colour they added,

So yes, Its a great staple/basic dress that can be remixed multiple ways, making it a real work horse of a piece.

Plus, it had pockets.. need i say more, haha!!
