tartan pinafore


I've been on a massive shopping mission lately, I've been working to build up a new autumn/winter wardrobe for myself and revamp my style and inject some fun back into my outfits. You'll see lots of my new pieces soon and I hope you love them as much as I do. Three things I've been obsessed with lately; New Look, 70's style and pinafores. New Look have been absolutely amazing lately, everything I see I want. This outfit I'm wearing above is all New Look, the tartan pinafore caught my eye in the petite section and I adore it. The little pockets are so cute and I love the muted autumnal colours mixed into the tartan. With little knitted tops or jumpers underneath this is a new staple in my autumn/winter wardrobe. 
The 70s style that is everywhere at the moment is gorgeous, I can't enough. The cute little button up skirts, pinafores, cord and lace up front tops have me starry eyed. 
What I really like about this style is how perfectly it suits my body shape and my taste. It also takes my love of preppy style but makes it more edgy and nostalgic, it's just gorgeous, I feel like it's a much more mature version of my usual style. I'm seriously obsessed.
Pinafores used to remind me of school uniform and I hated it, but I love the nostalgia! 
The little grey top is from new look also, I've picked up a couple of these in different colours and some with the lace up front detail I'm also really loving right now. It was so cheap, only £6 in their black friday deal! It's really good quality and keeps me nice and warm.
I'm spending my christmas in Maine where it's bitterly cold and snows like crazy. A lot for this Brit girl to handle! As someone who has quite a hate for trousers, I'm going to pair thermal tights with outfits like this. The pinafore looks so cute with a cardigan thrown over and some heeled boots, I know I'm going to be warm but still looking good.
