Christy: Child's play

I'm not sure if any one else feels this but do you ever look at what a kid is wearing and think "Why don't they make that in my size?" Like Seriously! kid's clothing often has the cutest, funkiest prints and designs. This is why it's so exciting when I find kid's clothing that fits me. I'm not super tiny but sometimes a child's extra large does the trick for me. I have a nice pair of semi-harem pants from the kid's section at H&M.
When taking these pictures I wore another piece of child's clothing: a lovely white tunic/shirt/dress? It's a little tight across the shoulders but other than that fits me perfectly.
I realize that this outfit is very simple but I felt that the white was nicest on its own, without too much visual noise so I paired it with the simple blue belt I bought on my last thrifting trip.

I figured a crown was a child like touch.

YES! I definitely am envious of the playful prints and cute cuts on children's clothing. When I was thinner I wold try to squeeze myself into them but now it's pretty impossible.

The sun light is very pretty in these photos.

Oh my gosh, I have that all the time, some of my all time favourite clothes-and in fact the first style of vintage fashion I ever wore-was 1930s children's clothes. So many of my clothes are actually kids clothes, it's the one good thing about being such a little squirt (as my stepdad calls me).
Also, your photos are absolutely beautiful, your crown is so sweet, I want one!!
