We were in H & M kids this weekend buying jeans for the 18 year old, it was her birthday, even though she’s 18 she’s a shorty like me so H & M kids is perfect for jeans for her.
While we were looking around my mum spotted this dress. It was only £5 reduced from £18. At first we couldn’t work out why there were ladies clothes in the kids store. Then it dawned on us that it was from their maternity range.
It’s lovely material, quite thick, but not too thick, just enough that it’s going to last after lots of washes. It’s long sleeved and has a lovely swingy skirt.
It’s perfect for a day like today, it’s grey and a little cold, so I’m wearing it with my denim jacket but it will also be just right with black tights, boots, and a cardigan, my standard winter uniform.
I’d never thought to look at maternity clothing before, even after 7 babies the only maternity wear I’ve ever had was my wedding dress. A blue and white polka dot dress. It was 1993 and I was 8 months pregnant on my wedding day.
Next time I’m looking for a bargain I’ll be popping in to look at their maternity sale items.
