Let’s Get Preppy: Pinafore Dress & Felt Hat

A Happy Weekend everyone!

In the UK, school years starts in September… and as I’ve mentioned on my previous post, my daughter started reception this month and is loving it so far! I think it was me that was more anxious than her on the first week, but I’ve gotten over that now seen how well she’s coping. I wore this outfit last week when we went hunting for the best chalkboard to go with our kitchen (yep, any excuse to dress up!). We’ve got more things to remember now that we’ve got a school girl, and the calendar was a little too small to scribble all our different schedules.

As you’ll see, I went for a preppy/collegiate look inspired by the “back to school” mania.

what to wear with pinafore skirt

My black pinafore dress was bought from Miss Selfridge during their final reduction sale, I got it for 70% off which was lovely. I paired it up with my old New Look dots and bows top. Along with the sale purchases I bought from Miss Selfridge was this sling bag. My felt hat is Marks and Spencer, I bought it on last January’s new year sale.

how to accessorize

I added minimal accessories here and there; my set of rings bought from Claire’s accessories and Unisilver watch that was given by one of my close friends in the Philippines.

Lots of love,
