Kids section

I fell in love with this dress the second I saw it. And it wasn’t even meant for my age – I bought it from the kids section in H&M! I do that quite often, to be honest. It all started after I lost quite a bit of weight a few years ago and I figured stuff from the kids section would probably fit me. Little did I know that even now (after I put the weight back on), kids stuff, aged 14+, would also work – apart from most of the trousers that is. I guess kids don’t have these kinds of hips lol

Great prints and silly slogans

Kids section

Do you ever buy stuff in the kids section? It’s such fun, shopping in there. There’s all these super prints and silly slogans and the like that I just can’t resist. I do feel a bit sneaky trying it all on though. Like I shouldn’t be doing it or something, but when it fits, I’m usually giggling in the dressing room like a kid anyway!

Print & shape

Kids section

It wasn’t just the gorgeous print on this dress that drew me to it. It was also the shape. A flattering shape on a curvy (ish) woman, right? I loved the asymmetrical hemline, the little bit of elasticated waist and the neckline too. To be honest, I can’t really imagine a young girl wearing it. But then, young girls do like to appear older, don’t they?!

Pale pink

But seriously, isn’t the print just divine? It’s fun and classy at the same time. As for the colour – if it was entirely this shade of pale pink I don’t think I’d have gone for it. But the added animal/leaf print just makes it special – and cuts out too much of the wishy washy pink too.

I teamed it with my comfy Zara Home golden sandals, a delicate gold necklace and ring as well as my beautiful gold tiger bracelet that I inherited from my late step-mother-in-law.

Shopping in the kids section

This is the first time I’ve ever bought a dress from the kids section – I usually buy tops, sweaters, vests, etc. So I was really delighted to find it. And, it was in the sale too! Bonus! The only problem with the dress, is that it’s a little transparent so I had to wear flesh coloured knickers underneath it. But that’s certainly not a deal breaker. I will most definitely continue to shop in the kids section in future in the hopes that I might find another diamond like this.

  • I used to do the same quite often, shopping in the kids’ section, but I’d forgotten about it recently! I find the same, that ages 13-14+ often fit fine, plus they usually go up to a size 6 shoe too and I’m a size 5, so that’s awesome. Love the print on this dress – I would never have guessed it was from the kids’ section either!

    I don’t personally tend to buy clothes in the kids’ section as I just presume it would never fit me, but my good friend is often sporting some cool clothes which she proudly announces is from the kids’ section, and usually H&M too. Maybe I should look there next time. #brillblogposts

    • Susie, yes! You really should… there’s often some thing to be found.
      Thanks so much for stopping by!

    What a great print! It’s hard to believe that they had this stunning outfit in the kids section. It looks so grown up and feminine. Thanks for linking up to the Top of the World Style linkup party.
