Do you remember back when us 90's kids were young, Pinafores were the school fashion to have? Suddenly, they became deeply uncool, and I'd huff and puff in the uniform shop when my mum would hold up said incriminating garment and coo 'Oh its so cute!'. Cute?! I was going into year 6, there will be non of this cute business!
Roll on 12 years and there still wont be any of this cute business; Pinafore, meet lace up heels, your anti cute hero.
Crop Top- H&M
Necklace- Independent Boutique
Tights- Pretty Polly from Tights Please
Some girls crave chocolate, I crave heels, so I was practically incoherent with withdrawal syndrome when I found these saviours in Zara. I'm a huge fan of Aquazzura, and I think these a pretty good replacements for pre- pay day cravings.
The Pinafore definitely requires a top underneath (Or does it? Watch this space) however to keep this out of the cute zone, a frisky little crop top, restored balance. This is also a great way to re-wear your summer crop tops in less than summer conditions.
If only my 10 year old self could see me now. I wonder what she would think to me actively buying a pinafore? Probably shudder. Oh I was such pain as a child!
