Black and white

Hi everyone. Happy Friday. I a big fan of black and white without a doubt, this time featuring a pinafore dress. Say what? Pinafore is a sleeveless dress like mostly worn by either women or girls as a protective apron and very popular from the 1700's to as early 20th century. Back then the purpose of wearing pinafore is to protect the child's dress from getting dirty while playing. Fast forward to the present and pinafore were not wear for the same purpose anymore. Definitely the concept, fabrics and colors have changed. And to play with contrast,  adding the neon colored pumps seals the deal ! 
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a fabulous weekend !
