Rate It or Hate It: Denim Pinafore

Every so often I become fixated with an item of clothing and am absolutely determined to make it work for me even if I suspect, deep down, that it may not totally suit me. I've spoken before about my love for all things pinafore related (here) and mentioned a few other such examples of one-piece wonderfulness that had caught my attention. One of them I REALLY could not get out of my head.

Step forward Topshop's lustworthy denim pinafore that I bought recently and absolutely adore. However, I suspect the feeling isn't mutual. I feel like it's a bit long on me and I should probably just wait and see if their Petite line will stock it so then I won't have this dilemma. But there's no guarantee it will come out in Petite! As such, I haven't been able to bring myself to remove the tags yet and fully commit to ownership. So I thought I would throw the question out there to you, my lovely readers, as to whether I should keep this pinafore or not. I ask you: should it stay or should it go??

Spring has sprung in Crouch End!
What should I do? Oh, the agony of choice...
The tag. Still attached. But for how long?

My Outfit:
Pinafore, Beanie, Boots (old): Topshop
Stripey Top: Urban Outfitters
Necklace: River Island (similar here)
Bracelet (old): H&M (similar here)
Cherry Blossoms: Mother Nature ('cos it's effin' Spring, yo!)

So, come on, help me out with this pinafore: winner or binner? YOU decide!


  1. Ah that pinafore is so cute!! Personally, I think it's a great length on you. It looks great with the stripey top underneath - a v. cool look! :D

  2. I think to wear it with boots it could do with being a tiny bit shorter if i'm completely honest, but if you wore it with flats or sandals in summer then this length is perfect :) And I love it with the stripey top :)


  3. Love your hat! Very pretty. Also love reading your posts as they are always such a nice read :)

  4. You look soooooo cute! Defo take the tag off! You should wear it!! <3

  5. Mmm I'm undecided in some pictures (the one with your hands in your pocket) I really like it, but in some of the others it's just a bit sort of shapeless and I think it doesn't do your figure any favours. Length wise I'm ok with that but part of me just wants to pull it in and show your waist (which I realise defeats the purpose). I'd say lose it, you can do better.

    1. Thanks! That's 3-1.
      (I'm also concerned as to the shapelessness of it.. I'm a curvy girl afterall).

  6. It should stay! I think the length is great on you and you have styled it perfectly with the stripes and boots. I know how you feel about not wanting to claim ownership until you have a second opinion, but I think you look lovely. :)

  8. I think this particular style is great! The buttons make it look less of an apron which is my issue with them! I have one from river island I recently posted about it on my blog! Go compare haah! X
