How I styled a red pinafore dress...

I know some people can be a bit snobby about supermarket clothing but some of my favourite pieces have been picked up alongside my weekly shop! F&F recently got in touch about their 'How You're Wearing It' feature and asked me to choose my favourite piece from their range and show how I would style it up. In the end, I chose this red pinafore dress (my love of red dresses is well documented on this blog!) and as is usual with pinafore style dresses, I paired it with a stripey top - this here is one fashion blogger who isn't afraid to mix it up ;)

Dress: c/o F&F at Clothing at Tesco, top: Oasis, shoes: Office 
I really love the fit of this dress, it hits at that perfect sweet spot just on the knee and the pleats are fab, plus you just can't beat a swooshy skirt....I know it will get a lot of wear layered up with long sleeved tops in the winter and I have a few jumpers that would be perfect for that preppy/schoolgirl vibe I love so much! I bought the dress in the next size up so I could layer it but to be honest I didn't need to, there is more than enough room...


Looking at these photos, I probably should have worn some lipstick with this but at the time it looked a bit much with the glasses, I guess photos can be deceiving!


Which things are you loving from F&F this Autumn?

Love this dress, it looks great with the stripes and will be fab with jumpers as the weather gets colder - red is such a lovely bright colour for wintery weather! x

I love the dress! You look so cute in it too. My local tesco isn't big enough to stock much of a clothes range, which is such a shame! I've seen some lovely things on other blogs from F&F and I've been so tempted!xx

I think this combo is utter perfection, and I am still super jealous of how much you rock red missus! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

Girl I'm with you on that, I shop F&F, TU at sainsburys and George at Asda so bring on the supermarket clothes. The dress is fantastic on you and I see why you love red, it suits you. I like how you paired it with the Stripe top.
