Wearing: Dungaree shorts c/o Blue Inc Vintage jumper Chanel ballet flats
It's not often that I wear shorts, but I mentioned in this post that I had received some items from Blue Inc and they kindly sent me these amazing dungarees! Of course my immediate reaction was to style them a la The Chung and so I wanted to pair them with my ballet flats as I love that very Parisian look of a shorter hem with a simple, flat shoe. Granted, my legs are nowhere near as good as Alexa's but it's rare for me to get my legs out anyway and with the weather being so nice too it was a good opportunity!
I picked up this super cute collared jumper in the charity shop back in Devon, and I was quite unsure how I'd wear it; I always think short sleeved jumpers are such an oddity, they are surely for keeping warm, yet without a sleeve they could be more summer suitable, but potentially still too thick for the hotter days! It worked really well under the dungarees though and I really like the contrast of colour and texture.
The dungarees are such a nice fit, they aren't too tight which I like, but a more vintage and authentic style which skims rather than clings especially around the legs. The legs themselves aren't too short, which again is important because I don't think super short shorts are very wearable, to me at least, I definitely don't go in for the bum cheeks hanging out look! I actually rolled these up so I was able to make them just the right length to suit me. The denim is quite rigid and doesn't have too much stretch, which adds to the vintage look and the thickness of the fabric means it feels great quality. For the price, a very affordable £16.99, these dungarees feel a lot more expensive and I think look it, too!
