The Pinafore

Nice Martin’s Pinafore is the ultimate dress for Summer. Versatile, practical, stylish and 100% linen, it was the perfect dress for long Florida days.

During my first trip to Florida last year, I learnt a very valuable lesson – do not wear black jeans when visting, or any colour jeans for that matter!

I totally underestimated how hot and humid the Sunshine State was and decided to wear a cute top with black jeans on a lunch date with my man. We also underestimated how far away our hotel really was and we decided to walk, in about 40ºc heat (though it felt a lot hotter), back to our hotel. Half an hour later and I felt like my legs were on fire, I was drenched in sweat, my hair had grown outwards and I was in a foul mood. I swore, never again to wear jeans in Florida!

I’ve just spent two weeks in Orlando, Florida and I can assure you, there wasn’t a long-leg pant in sight! While preparing for this trip, I paid special attention to the clothes I was going to take. I wanted to ensure my wardrobe was practical and stylish, but most importantly I wanted pieces that I knew I could stay (relatively) cool in.

I was on Instagram one day and came across the Nice Martin account. I took one look at their Martha Pinafore and had to have it. It was a relaxed-fit pinafore with a square neckline and adjustable buttons. Best of all, it was 100% linen.

I thought it was quite a versatile piece too. I could wear a little lace cami or singlet underneath, team with a t-shirt, or cover with a denim jacket. The shoe options are endless too, loafers, sneakers, sandals and even heels!

I busted out the pinafore and wore around Sydney before my trip. See below for the photos… oh, and ignore the gross bruise on my leg – another lesson learnt, don’t climb ladders without someone holding it.

Unfortunately the Martha Pinafore (long) in white is currently out of stock, but you can contact Nice Martin at to enquire about restocking, or you can buy it in Navy, or buy the shorter version, the Kendal, in white or black.
