F&F Denim Pinafore and Converse

Tuesday, June 16

Dress: F&F | Top: Fat Face | Trainers: Converse | Necklace: Layla Amber

Apart from my Lost Stock box, which hasn't arrived yet, this pinafore and converse have been my only lock down purchases. When it felt like summer was on the way a few weeks ago I spotted the dress in the 50% off sale they were having in Tesco.

I had a denim pinafore dress a few years ago but as I got older I became really uncomfortable with how short it was so it had to go. I've been looking for an alternative since - they are so versatile and fit in with lots of other pieces in my wardrobe. Not only was this one a bargain at £9 in the sale but it also fits in with a more grown up style I have now. The pockets are so handy for slipping my phone into. I like the button up style but one thing I've found when wearing it is that it can gap at awkward places when I'm sitting down so I think I'll have to sew it up and leave the buttons as detail. 

These converse were a necessary purchase because my previous pair had holes in the soles. I continued to wear them at the end of summer last year but every time it rained I would get wet feet which wasn't ideal. I saw this pair advertised on Facebook and they seemed like a bargain at £25. They might be a kids style but I love the blush pink and the snake print detail (you can see a close up photo here). I know they will go with almost everything I wear during summer - especially my denim jacket. I only wish I could do something to stop my old pair going into landfill.
