Outfit: Light Blue Pinafore Dress, Red Top, and White Sandals

Red Silk Blouse, Denim Patterned Pinafore Dress, and White Sandals

I've had this chambray overall dress for quite a few years now, but finally had the straps taken up so I didn't have to safety pin them shorter anymore. I enjoy a good overall even if it can look a little twee. I usually get plenty of positive comments on this pinafore dress though so I guess I'm not too old to rock one. 

This entire outfit takes me back to childhood because I'm pretty sure I wore a red shirt, overalls, and white shoes combination when I was a little kid. (I wish I could dig up the picture to compare.) It's a pretty solid combination if I do say so myself. So solid I wore it the other day and was very pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the outfit. What do you think? Would you/have you rocked overalls or pinafore-like things in your adulthood?

On a non-outfit-related note:

Can we talk for a minute about the oxford comma? I love the oxford comma. It just makes sense. However I work in PR and therefore must conform to AP style which forbids the oxford comma for some insane reason. Therefore I had to adapt and not use it at work - which pains me. The problem is that adaptation has slithered its way into my personal life and I sometimes find myself forgetting that last, perfect comma while blogging. The horror! Someday maybe the AP Stylebook will change its ways, but until then I guess I have to keep adjusting depending on my situation. I can't be the only oxford comma lover out there though. Where are my extra comma-loving people? You're all winners!

In other news, I'm continuing to plan Matt and my trip to Europe this fall and slowly renting Air BnBs. It's pretty exciting! We have about half of them booked and most of the flights too. It's becoming reality!

How has your week been so far and how was your weekend? I spent a lot of time back home for my sister's graduation party, which was fantastic and had so much delicious food I'm still snacking on leftovers instead of cooking actual meals for myself. Adulthood at its finest.

Anyway, I hope you have a smooth rest of your week! Happy Tuesday!

I LOVE a pinafore dress and this one is perfect on you- good old F21! I love a good comma, I guess it's part of my love of grammar!

This outfit is just too cute. I love the red, blue and white together. And also - you look amazing in that bright red colour of the top.
I would totally rock a pinafore/overalls type of thing if I found one that would be as cute as yours.
Your weekend sounds nice, and who doesn't love to eat leftovers - so good when you don't have to make food for yourself!!
Much love,
Mona

I love that pinafore dress and how you styled it with the red! So cute! I'm pretty sure my life as a kid was in pinafores - I really want one now!
I'd never heard of the oxford comma, so I just googled it haha! In the UK we always got taught never to use a comma at the end of a list of things because it was bad grammar! So strange!
