I really want a Pinafore dress

I really want a pinafore dress. I think it would be so practical, yes practical, two years ago I wouldn’t have even dreamed of buying practical clothing but with a little one who is now crawling I need something convenient that I can wear over lots of tops, and that has some movement to allow me to constantly reset my daughter into her starting position.

There are so many nice styles on the high street at the moment, here are some of my faves:


Topshop £35


Topshop £35


Oasis £45


Oasis £46


Oasis £45


Asos £30


New Look £14.50

All of these dresses can be worn throughout the year, they can teemed up with a pair of flip flops for summer, or boots in winter, they can also be worn casually or for a more dressed up occasion.

My favourite are the dresses in Oasis, I think I’ll take myself there for a shopping trip or do some online shopping.

What’s your favourite dress, have you seen any other beautiful pinafore dresses?

You can also find these dresses on my Pinterest board too.

    I really like them on other people but whenever I try one on I’m never sure enough to buy one!
    I found a lovely black one in New Look.

      I think it’s something I need to try on, but not sure how on earth to try on clothes with a baby in tow? Do you take the buggy into the changing cubicle? x

    I like the ASOS one – the colour is cool and the pockets. Not sure how it would work with big boobs though I think it’d be comfy! ⭐️

    • The Pramshed May 9, 2016 / 6:21 pm

      I think it would look lovely with big boobs! It might hide them 🙂 x

    I do love Oasis for clothes – they’re grown up but not ‘mumsy’ if you know what I mean! #fartglitter

    Sorry I meant #marvmondays – it’s been one of those days!!xx

    I’m still lusting after some dungarees but this could be the new lust after item to take the look into the Warmer weather. I say just do it, and hide the bags 😉

    • The Pramshed May 9, 2016 / 6:43 pm

      Do it! I think they will be useful for all seasons 🙂 x

    I’m really keen on these – I’ve seen loads of people in them and thought how lovely they look! I think the ASOS one is my favourite, but the Oasis ones are a bit more feminine if you know what I mean? #bigpinklink

    • The Pramshed May 9, 2016 / 6:44 pm

      Yes, they are very in at the moment, I think I might go for one from Oasis. Thanks for commenting lovely 🙂 x

  7. mummuddlingthrough May 9, 2016 / 6:37 pm

    Hey that’s weird, you are also the post in front of me for #marvmondays. Still want one 😉 Must be a sign..

    I love how so many things my Mum wore are back in, she always laughs at me buying things she used to as a youngster. These are so lovely though! Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo

    • The Pramshed May 9, 2016 / 8:19 pm

      It’s funny how fashions come back around, thanks I am ordering one now :)x

  9. moderatemum May 9, 2016 / 7:39 pm

    Yes, Im thinking of getting one too! I love a dungaree but these are much more practical in the pee pee dept.

    • The Pramshed May 9, 2016 / 8:20 pm

      I never thought of it like that! Ha 🙂 x

  10. Baby Anon May 9, 2016 / 9:11 pm

    I love the topshop one and the second oasis one…gorgeous 🙂 Think Mother might have her eye on the Oasis one 😉 #bigpinklink

    • The Pramshed May 10, 2016 / 6:26 am

      I need to order one, was going to last night….must do today 🙂 x

      • Baby Anon May 10, 2016 / 7:48 am

        Yay to new clothes 🙂 xx

  11. min1980 May 9, 2016 / 9:12 pm

    I’d quite like one too, but it’s one of those things that I feel could be dangerous territory. Am I wading into the stealing teenagers’ style and failing zone? Then again, I have managed to rock dungarees on occasion so who knows? #bigpinklink

    • The Pramshed May 10, 2016 / 3:58 pm

      Not at all, I think they look great! Claire x

  12. susankmann May 9, 2016 / 9:26 pm

    Those are all lovely. I really like the Oasis one. x

    • The Pramshed May 10, 2016 / 3:59 pm

      Same here, must order before they sell out 🙂 x

  13. Emma Jones May 10, 2016 / 3:36 pm

    I want one too but tried a new look one on & it just didn’t look right & haven’t got round to anywhere else yet. Think my hips are the problem ha ha!!! #bigpinklink Lifeinthemumslane

    • The Pramshed May 10, 2016 / 4:01 pm

      I think they are an item that needs to be tried on, but I’m not sure I can do that with a baby in tow. Will see if the husband can take baby for a bit whilst I shop 🙂 x

    These were really popular about 10 years ago, because I remember rushing out to get one!! Are they making a comeback, or just didn’t go away? I’m so out of touch with fashion these days!! It’s a great wardrobe staple though, so it’s best not to worry about fashion waves!! I love the oasis ones too-probably the darkest one on the middle of the three, is a little too fitted for my figure, but I love the other 2!! You’ll have to post some pictures of you rocking one!! Thanks for sharing with #bigpinklink.

    Ha Meadowhell! Hope it goes well (ooh that rhymes!) ha ha 🙂 x

    • My Little Yarn Baby May 16, 2016 / 7:14 pm

      We survived! Although he was getting cranky towards the end as it was too noisy for him to feed (he’s too nosey!)x

    I love pinafore dresses and dungarees and dungarees shorts… damn you and now I need to go shopping! Sending you the bill!!! xoxo

    hiya I really want one but yet one that looks ok. I saw one in Tesco by F&F that might be worth a squizz. xx
