How to Style a Pinafore Dress

Today’s post is in collaboration with Nordstrom. All opinions are my own!

Look 1: Striped Tee ($20!) // Pinafore Dress // Booties // Bag // Sunnies // Similar Watch

Look 2: Top // Pinafore Dress // Sneakers // Bag // Sunnies 

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know I am just a little obsessed with overalls. That’s why the moment I saw this pinafore dress, I had to have it! It’s such a fun piece to add to your fall wardrobe as you can wear it now and easily transition it as the seasons change! I have been SO excited to see this trend make it’s way into fall fashion! While browsing the Nordstrom site, I noticed pinafores in different fabrics and patterns throughout the new arrivals section. They are ALWAYS on top of the latest trends and I will definitely be adding a few more pinafores to my wardrobe this season thanks to Nordstrom (obsessing over this embroidered option and this unique velvet pick). 

Today I wanted to share TWO ways to wear a pinafore dress. This classic denim option is a perfect way to bring the trend into you fall wardrobe. I promise this is a piece you will get a ton of wear out of! 

Look 1 – This is an easy way to style a pinafore for work in the fall! A basic striped tee (this one is only $20!) and a pair of booties makes for a cute and easy outfit that is also the perfect base for layering when the weather gets cooler. In late fall, I would definitely pair this with tights, riding boots a scarf and cardigan! 

Look 2 – A pinafore can be a perfect laid back piece for the weekend! Pair it with some sneakers and a cozy sweater or sweatshirt for an effortless throw on and go look. This sweatshirt is SO comfortable and ridiculously soft. I also can’t get enough of those oversized sleeves!
