28022015 trying to make dungarees cool







These dungarees are fabulous for many reasons, the first being that they give me a bum lift that kim k could be proud of. Well kind of but it does at least make me look like I'm a fan of squats.

 The second being the fact you don't have to pull your jeans up every minute or so (so good). 

The third and final would be the price. After sobbing to myself about the perfect ASOS ones that went out of stock as soon as I decided to order them and then my local TOPSHOP not having any in stock either I begrudgingly perused the sale rack in ZARA only to find these babies that fitted beautifully even though I didn't think I could squeeze into them (thank the lord for ZARA for having the worlds most varied sizes) for FIVE NINETY NINE. For practically 6 quid, how could I say no? Not quite the boyfriend style I wanted but HEY who cares for that price?! 

So this is my take on dungarees and whilst I wish I'd kept the ones 15 year old me bought these will certainly do. Even though I look very suspiciously like a mime if you take into account the stripey top.  I wore this little get up to London Fashion Weekend which was super fun and despite feelin' a little self conscious I was certainly not over or under dressed, phew.

  6. You have definitely made dungarees look cool! I've always thought they're more of a summer thing but you've shown how longer ones can take you through the cooler months too! Cannot believe how cheap these were, amazing find!

  12. We've been lusting after dunagrees for a while now - take us back to our childhood! Might have to actually give it a try after seeing your styling.
