This has to be my favourite go-to outfit for crazy-weather season: classic denim dungarees and a pretty patterned bow blouse (both La Redoute). As long as the sun doesn't get too hot (which it has done, weirdly, in the last couple of days) then this is perfect for spring. I'm not afraid to admit I feel more than a touch Beverly Hillbillies in it, but as I was a fan of the black and white TV series when I was a kid - yes I'm that old! - that's no bad thing.
I've wanted a pair of classic blue denim dungarees for absolutely years. I have a pair of grey Asos ones but they're not the traditional style like these with the front clasps, and with this pair I can do the whole one-side-undone-look with a white tank and look like a female car mechanic or something... there's so many different personas I can take on with them ;)
This is my penultimate La Redoute brand ambassador post I'm sad to say. I've held the position for nearly a year now and have really enjoyed seeing their new collections each season and sharing my French-style outfits with you. Check out all my ambassador posts here - I'm thinking of doing a round up of the best from the last 12 months, so watch out for that!
I know they divide opinion but are you a "yay" or a "nay" when it comes to dungarees (or overalls as the say across the pond)? Many think they're unflattering but I don't care when they're this classic...!

I am a brand ambassador for La Redoute after winning a competition to find two bloggers to represent the brand for 2014-15. The prize included a budget to spend at La Redoute each month. All content is original, however, and opinions are my own and 100% honest.
