Frilly Socks Paired with Pinafores!

Everyone has their fashion week favourites, and this year mine is Orla Kiely. I’ve always held a fondness for pinafores; and Orla has definitely brought it back! I felt so inspired after seeing the Autumn Winter collection, so what luck (!) that I spied a plaid pinafore amongst the dresses during my latest thrifting spree. It even has a somewhat silly crochet flower in the middle, which I not-so-secretly love! Oversized collars are key, so I paired the pinafore with the For the Right Moment Dress, courtesy of Modcloth. My brogues and frilly socks were both from ASOS.

We spent our Saturday beside the river, where both Barnaby and I spotted a trout! We were so incredibly excited to share the news, but soon found out that it is a pretty regular occurrence. Whoops! We had other odd animal adventures today; we shooed a cicada and a bumble bee out of the house using a tea cup and saucer, and we discovered a caterpillar’s cocoon inside a washing line peg. Cute cute cute!

  1. Your photos always make me want to go out and enjoy the nature, but here where I live everything is so desertic and there are no green plants, which depresses me a little, hahaha!
    I love Orla Kiely too, every season is like magic! And you did a good job emulating her collection, I love pinafores too! You look adorable! <3

  2. There’s really something about pinafore and frilly socks. Reminds me of school,but the brogues says ‘Hey I’m adult’. Love the mix.

  3. OH MY GOODNESS! Your shoes!! I had some like that a few years ago from Forever 21 but they broke and I have never been able to find anything remotely similar. Must get onto Asos and have a look…

  4. I really like all of the fashion in nature themed photos you take for your blog. Your settings are very unique and the contrast between your outfits and the outdoors is quite interesting to look at.
