One In A Minion


Whenever I wear this dress Milo tells me I’m wearing my ‘Minion costume’, my husband isn’t keen, my daughter is mortified but I love it! I looked for the longest time for a dungaree style to suit my boxy ‘apple’ shape, from long trouser-types to shorts and straight dresses, everything accentuated the bad but I loved the idea and I kept trying. I finally stumbled upon this denim ‘pinny’ from Anita & Green only for it to be out of stock everywhere. Out of stock? Out of season? eBay is your friend! I set an alert and eventually one popped up on a brand outlet, I ended up bagging it for just £10, brand new and it fits like a glove. Meant to be? I think so!


Unfortunately I can’t find any more stock at this point to share with you but here are some other more flattering dungaree styles for those who need some shape, all of which come in at £20 or less..







IMG_9885I often feel like people are looking at me (especially when I’m with my kids) like ‘she should dress her age’ but I couldn’t care less what anyone else thinks so long as I’m comfortable. Someone at work once said that my colleague (I’d guess late 40s) was ‘too old to be wearing heels’ ..I mean I get that dungarees are a little child-like but heels? Comments like that just make me more determined to ignore anyone who would dare to make them and  wear what the hell I like, regardless of my age!

Oh and thanks to Emma for the impromptu photo session 😉

    Haha kids are lovely aren’t they!!! I have this same dress/pinafore from New Look last year and I love it! Great for all seasons and as for being too old I’m 53 and counting…way too old to be told what to wear!

    I think you’re never too old for dungarees! I definitely need to add them to my wardrobe 🙂

    Totally agree, I’m 38, wear what I like and couldn’t give a shit what others think quite frankly. Last week out with friends I wore pink eyeshadow, garish pink tassel earrings and snakeskin heels. If people have a problem with this then that’s exactly it, their problem. This look totally suits you!

    I love that outfit on you!! My daughter is around Ella’s age & she thinks my aim in life is to embarrass her! I think she even finds me breathing an embarrassment!! my son is a year younger than Milo & he loves weird & wacky fashions, I think he’d love it if I went out in anything that caused my eldest to cringe!! Tutu, bikini top & wellies anyone??!!❤️Xx
