Wearing Teen Clothes at 24

I'm quite a petite woman at 5'3 and a half, the half is very important! I don't hide the fact that I don't like being small. I'd love to be lovely and tall but there are some advantages to being small.

One thing I like about being smaller is that I can buy teen clothes and if you look in my wardrobe you will see a good few tops in that age range. Not only are they some really cute things they are also cheaper than adult clothes. Of course you have to be careful what sort of teen clothes you buy but you can easily get away with plain, simple and casual items like this quilted sweatshirt. Perfect for a lazy Saturday in the house or it could easily be dressed up with a statement necklace, some cute jeans and a pair of killer heels. 

I do feel quite lucky in a way that I have the option to shop in both the adult section and the teen section, not a lot of people get that choice. And when I wear things from the teen section it's not like it has a big neon sign attached that says it is indeed a teen top and not an adult top. No one can tell the difference unless they have a teenage daughter with the same outfit!! But even then it doesn't matter where your clothes are from. The most important thing is that you like it and feel comfortable wearing it. 

For years I hated my size and while I don't love it now I don't hate it like I used to. Can you believe I'm actually the tallest woman in my family. As the generations have gone on each set of women have gotten taller. My mum is less than 5 foot so I'm around 4" taller than her. I wonder if Paige will be 4" taller than me. She is certainly going in the right direction being in the 98th percentile for her age.

Do you buy from the teen section? 

Thanks for reading,
