Ok I love the preppy look for autumn my work wardrobe is usually little dresses, skirts, shirts cardi brogues etc.
Query I am 39. I'm 5'2 size 10.
Honestly am I too old to wear one with a shirt/polo kneck underneath?
Come on ladies hit me.

no you are not too old for pinafores and polos. I am mid 70s and wear variations all year round . I am looking for a wine corduroy for the fall. I also like the tweedy ones. What are you considering?

Thank you amarmai
I've not started the hunt yet I've just been looking at mags and took a notion. Im thinking a sort of Vilma from scooby doo but without the socks grin

I like Nomads for winter tunic type affairs - not sure if you would consider them pinafores, I think I do smile.

I don't see any problem, they're just dresses with something underneath.
Unless you're thinking of adopting this look, in which case even I might be having a word.

Your safe floisme grin I was not planning that.
I appreciate the links but they are just not quite it. I get it in my head and then it doesn't exist. Grrrr

Are you thinking more along these lines OP?

I think it's really cute.

That's it whyI grins happy dance Thank you. Hopefully being a total short arse it won't be so short but thick tights will sort it.

Bought this one a few months ago and wore it loads over summer with t shirt and seasalt sandals. Hoping to wear it through winter with tights too.
