Is this what they call the 'mature' length?

Jacket: Forever 21 // Pinafore: New Look // Top: Zara // Boots: H&M // 
Belt: Mango // Scarf: Urban Outfitters

Denim, denim, denim...
There is nothing that gets me more than a denim pinafore, which is probably why my collection seems to be continuously growing. When browsing through the isles of New Look, I came across this lovely piece and thought to myself, is this what you call the 'mature' length? 
All pinafores do have a slight childish feel to them due to the reminder of our throwback baby pictures styled by our ever so fashionable parents, yet I thought the length of this piece gave it a twist.

Below the knee isn't a cut I usually wear as I never found pieces this length seemed to flatter me and yes, I did generally categorise this cut as being 'not for my age'. 
I was so wrong!
This pinafore fits like an absolute glove, the material is quite stretchy meaning it gently pulls your figure in all the right places and is the perfect transitional piece! Even though the temperatures are still below freezing I'm still trying to let my desire for summer to shine through.

I wore this look during my short stay at York and found the cutest location to shoot. For me, finding the best location to shoot is about exploring as the places you least expect make the best shots. If some of you don't know, I adore photography and would much rather be behind the camera than in front but I still love both! Sometimes the visuals I want don't come across through the shots taken, but my Mum does an absolutely amazing job and I want to apologise to her for doubting her efforts!
So, Mum if you're reading this, I'm sorry, you are the perfect photographer!

  2. I don't often wear over the knees, too, just because I don't find they flatter my body type, but I'm loving the pinafore on you, Lucy. Amping it up with that belt is such a clever idea, too!

    1. I'm definitely a mini skirt wearer as well so that's why wearing this length is slightly different for me!
