It has rained here non stop for the past few days but luckily enough i managed to get some outfit photos in the dry! I am obsessed with this blouse, i was in Matalan in the summer and i usually wear size 6 but the size 8 clothing sadly doesn't fit me boo :( so i thought i would take a look in the kids section as you can sometimes find some gems, i always think kids clothes is so much more grown up than it should be. Anyway, i spotted this blouse and was besotted, the detail on it is amazing. I love the cherub and floral pattern as well as the sheer material with the embellished ends of the collar,the little vest top also came with it, i'm not quite sure why a child would wear this but anyway children's clothes is always so much cheaper too because its not taxed and this was only £12!! I would recommend looking every now and then if you're a size 10 or below because the older children's sizes are very generous. But i'm so pleased with this bargain and no one would guess it was a childrens top!

I love the contrasting colour and texture of the velvet shorts against the top. Oxblood is a colour i don't own much of and i love how deep and rich the colour of these are,they are definitely a staple for my A/W wardrobe.

What do you think of this outfit? Have you bought from the children's section before?
