Child's Play

Being 5'1 doesn't have many fashion advantages. Maxidresses are practically a health hazard, trousers are always far too long and heels are a daily essential. Last week, I was browsing in M&S for a birthday card for a friend when a rack of gorgeous dresses caughty my eye. This turned out to be the children's sale rail! This floral dress has been reduced to £7 so I snapped it up and completely forgot about the birthday card I was supposed to be buying.


Dress & shrug: M&S Limited Collection Girls, Tshirt: H&M

The dress is quite summery so I teamed it with leggings and a grey tshirt underneath. I love the gathering on the skirt and the cute khaki shrug that came with it. I'll definitely be browsing in the children's sections more for bargains. FYI, I got this dress in age 15 and I'm a size 8-10 in "adult sizes" so don't think that you have to be teeny tiny to fit into children's clothes!

Do you ever browse in the children's section?

I'm off to Australia tomorrow. For 6 weeks. I can't quite believe how fast its come around - all the planning, packing and (the most fun part) shopping is over and tomorrow I'll be jetting off Down Under! I may not miss the English weather while I'm gone but I will definitely miss blogging - I'll have some major catching-up to do when I'm back!

I've scheduled a couple of posts so that my blog doesn't completely drop off the face of the earth while I'm gone and once I'm back I have some plans for LilyLipstick, including a giveaway to thank you guys and celebrate my first year in blogging.


Showing off my guide book, wearing my Accessorize sunhat, blowing you a kiss goodbye and wearing my new ring (£2 in Topshop sale)

Sending my love from Down Under!
