secrets of silence



topshop pinafore dyed black
topshop aleggera boots (similar here)
H&M hat
topshop coat (old)

This is what I wore shopping on Saturday and I thought I'd share it on here. Im trying to mix the blog up a bit more and do a mixture of outdoor photos and inside ones. So whenever I can grab my flatmate to do an impromptu snap or two I do!

This is one of my favourite outfits I've worn in a long while. I pulled the panther shirt out the depths of my wardrobe and knew it would be the perfect shirt to go under my freshly dyed pinafore. I've wanted a black dungaree's style pinafore for a while but the one I had my eye on kept going out of stock. I managed to nab this blue one when I was home a few weeks ago and finally got around to dying it black to fit my usual wardrobe theme! Paired with my hat, boots and favourite Topshop coat this was the perfect outfit to throw on and go.

  4. I'm loving pinafores lately! This looks awesome on you.

    You definitely need to do more outdoor outfits! I mainly do mine outdoors, the only thing I hate about it is people watching, ha! xo

  17. River Island have a black pinafore dress in case this fades. Looks good though, and DIY always makes clothes feel better!
