I've been trying to incorporate more black back into my wardrobe, a sentiment my 15-year old self would have found baffling that black were lacking in any way. More casual staples that I can pair up with other things. I need to make my wardrobe reflect the laziness that is my daily life.
Yours Clothing has been putting out some great pieces and my wishlist keeps growing.
I've always fancied a pinafore but there's never really been much going in my size, that wasn't blue denim at least, until now. I was trying to choose between two dresses at the time and when I sent the links to my partner, this was their choice. Although to be honest I'l probably get the other one as well, ha!
I like it, but it's taking some getting used to. It's hard to explain. I'm struggling to find anything to wear underneath it that I think goes really well. I do kinda feel a bit like an artisan baker in it sometimes. I dunno. It's a work in progress. I think this is going to be better suited as a winter wardrobe piece, for me personally at least.
The material was heavier than I expected, but still soft and comfortable. I wore this to see Grimes and despite it being pretty packed and sweaty, as you'd imagine any Grimes gig to be, I was still really comfortable in it. It's a little bit long for personal taste, but I can always hem it, so it's great for taller folks who often have a lot of trouble finding stuff that isn't cupping their bumcheeks.
One thing I was a little disappointed with was that after the first wear at the gig I noticed the material had already started bobbling underneath the armpits, which was disappointing for a dress at £26.
Overall I'm pretty pleased with it. It's comfy, it's cute, and you can work it with lots of things. ALSO POCKETS YASS.
Outfit: Yours Clothing Skater Pinafore
