What I Wore | Denim Dungaree Dress

IMG_9704

I’ve been after a dungaree dress for ages but as I’m quite tall I’ve struggled to find one that’s long enough. They all seem to be super short, and when your bending over to strap the kids in their car seats and your bum is on show, it’s not a good look!

When I was in Primark last week I spotted this beauty which is perfect for me because it’s knee length. They had my usually size 12 so I grabbed it quickly as there weren’t many left.

Sadly when I got home and tried it on it was too tight on my hips, I couldn’t even do the buttons up, damn my wide hips! I went back to return it, expecting all the 14’s to have gone as there weren’t any the first time I was there. Luckily they had one size 14, yay! And it fits perfectly, I am so pleased with it.

It’s super comfortable too, I find that sometimes denim can be really stiff and uncomfortable. I have a pair of black denim dungarees from Topshop and they can be really uncomfortable, this dress is not at all like that.

The dress was just £14.00. I teamed it with my white converse and a stripey tee, also from Primark.

If you’re wanted to get your hands on this I’d suggest getting to Primark pretty soon as I can imagine this selling out. Alternatively ASOS, Matalan and H&M have similar ones.

P.s I’m partly looking away from the camera because the sun was shining in my eyes and partly because the wind was blowing my hair all over the place!

What do you think to this dress?

Thanks for reading.

    I think you look great Emma. Love the dress, really looks good on you. To find a decent knee high dress is such a mission. I too, am tall, and for me all the dresses I find are just way too short ! 🙂

    Love that dress, you look fab in it. I would love something like this but I don’t think I could work the look with a massive baby bump! It actually looks like it would be great for breastfeeding though so I might burly one for when baby is here. Looks great with the stripey top too xx #picknmix

    Oh I love it. I am a bit obsessed with stripes as well and that tee looks great with it. I bought a dungaree dress in New Look and it is rather short so would love a longer one.x marvmondays

    I love this Emma! I’m a huge fan of the denim pinafore dresses that are around at the moment and this looks fab on you. I completely agree about the length issue though – I’m a shorty and I find most of them very short! #MarvMondays

    I love this look, I’ve got a denim dress from primark too that I team with a stripy Tshirt. It’s a shorter one though so I do have to be careful. Thanks for linking to #picknmix
