Chaneling Britney // Are Pinafores OK?

Are Pinafores OK? Never thought I’d be one to be wearing a pinafore dress but here I am, channeling Britney at her best.

I actually really enjoyed styling this one up and was pleasantly surprised by the result, I loved playing with the contrasting lengths of the barely there skirt and the maxi cardigan, I think it works!

Are Pinafores OK?

Personally, I’m all about the, its not what you wear it’s how you wear it. Some say you can’t polish a turd, I say, challenge accepted. Not that I’m calling pinafores turds. Ok, shall I start again?

Despite the eye watering length, I actually really like this one from PLB, perhaps it’s my abnormal height that makes it so small, I think on a normal human it wouldn’t be so short! Part of the appeal to me is the button up, who can resist a button up detail on anything? Not me, as we all know from experience!

Anyway, despite the fact that I know for a fact that if I wore this around my boyfriend he’s do his oh so predictable joke of “sorry, oh, yeah, the 90’s called, they want their pinafores back” I’m pretty sure I pull it off. Please say I do?

The boots themselves are pretty damn hot, you can see my detailed opinion on them along with my advice on fit in my haul here. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m loving these longer length boots from Daisy Street, they’re just so much more flattering and I think it looks amazing with the cardigan.

I definitely need to get this cardigan out more often, I find myself neglecting the older pieces in my wardrobe for the new shiny pieces.Chaneling Britney are pinafores ok? Chaneling Britney are pinafores ok? Chaneling Britney are pinafores ok?Chaneling Britney are pinafores ok?

So what do you think? Are pinafores OK? and most importantly, do I pull it off?

    I love this! This outfit is gorgeous on you and will forever be my justification to those who don’t think that pinafores should still be a thing!

    I think the Outfit looks really good. The skirt is a tad too short for my taste tbh – if it would have been longer I’m sure it would have looked even better on you!

    I have a corduroy pinafore and I feel like a little girl every time I wear it, but it’s so sweet I can’t help but love it! Molly x
