One fine day
Hello everyone! My name is Megan from The Briar Rose Blog and I'm one of the new Dahlia girlfriends. I must admit, it's a little intimidating to follow in the steps of Arabella, Dunya and Olivia; they're three of my favourite bloggers, and heaven knows how I'm going to measure up to them! That said, I'm delighted to be writing this post at all. I've adored Dahlia since I first stumbled across their Foubert's Place shop last spring, and had the lovely experience of featuring in their Summer 2012 video, so being a resident blogger is pretty much a dream come true!
I'll be the first to admit that I'm well and truly on the bandwagon when it comes to the pinafore trend. I simply love it, and it's reached the point where I've got them coming out of my ears in every fabric, length and colour, however this denim Dahlia number is still firmly at the top of my wishlist. It's ever so summery, and a more stylish version of the pinafores my mum dressed me in the nineties.
Come summer I'll be layering it over light tee shirts and retro bikinis for days at the beach, but since it's still a little chilly at the moment, today I wore it with a subtly Western inspired blouse and black tights. As if I didn't already look enough like a retro schoolgirl, I topped the outfit off with a straw boater hat. Now steer me in the direction of the nearest sweet shop!
