For as long as I can remember, I’ve been on the hunt for that perfect pinafore dress. Maybe it’s because I’ve rewatched season one of Gossip Girl far too many times than I’d care to admit, but more often or not, my outfits are very influenced by a certain Miss Waldorf. So when I was browsing my local New Look store the other week, I knew I’d have to get my hands on it. Whilst it’s potentially not the most flattering (nor windy-weather appropriate as I found out the hard way…) it’s one of those pieces you can wear all year round, and I can’t wait to pair it with my roll neck jumpers once it gets a little cooler.
Since the sun made it’s appearance in Newcastle the day I was taking these photographs, I decided to go for this white blouse that is one of my summer staples. With a tie-front neckline and cute polka dot print, it’s a nice little twist on a classic which I really like. I’ve been pairing it with everything from more formal pieces to raw hem denim and there isn’t a single thing it doesn’t go with! And of course, we can’t bypass the amazingness that is this backpack, right? If there’s one colour this season that I can’t get enough of, it’s silver. I’m yet to find my dreamy pair of silver shoes that fit (boo!) but for now, this adorable mini backpack is with me every day. It’s big enough to fit in all of the essentials (camera included) whilst not being too bulky or back-breakingly heavy which is perfect.
