Back to school style: pinafore dresses

Nora Ephron's beautiful film You've Got Mail features possibly some of the best lines ever uttered on the silver screen:

"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies." 

"I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms."

L-R: Little White Lies Sissy pinafore dress, £85, Urban Outfitters; NW3 Highgate dress, £39, Hobbs; Pinafore dress with buckles, £21, ASOS; MOTO Llama pinafore dress, £42, Topshop.

I love the autumn. The sharp chill in the air, crisp leaves on the ground, pink cheeks and warm coffees in the fading sunlight. Simply wonderful. I'm sure, however, that no matter what age I am, the latter half of the year will always remind of going back to school: buying a new pencil case, shoes that looked like the most unflattering of creepers and dragging my uniform out of the bottom of the wardrobe.

But while this is the first September I'm celebrating with a decent pay cheque and/or no plans of returning to education, I've found my wardrobe has still become a pretty studious affair. I'm lusting after satchels, quirky socks and pinafore dresses - and thankfully this last one is making an appearance on the High Street this year.
