Winter Floral Maxi20:08
Dress - H&M
Bag - Primark
Hat - H&M
I've really been loving H&M recently, to be honest I think I lot of my winter wardrobe has come from there so don't be surprised if it features in my next few outfit posts, my only problem is their sizing making it impossible for me to order online. Take this dress for example, when I spotted it in store I thought it'd make a perfect winter dress with it's length and long sleeves and even better was the price, making it an absolute steal at £14.99! It would've been rude to leave it on the rail! However, I felt a wave of disappointment when I saw that the only sizes left were a 6 and a 14, but being a size 8 I thought I'd attempt to squeeze into the 6 seeing as it had an elasticated waste. Once I got to the changing rooms and tried it on I was surprised at how roomy it was, if anything I could've even gone a size smaller. It absolutely baffles me how in the same store I sometimes have to go up to a size 10 or 12 in jeans and am then able to more than comfortably fit into a size 6 dress. Don't get me wrong, I love H&M and think their clothes are great value for money but just don't understand how their sizing can be so varied in different items of clothing. It's probably a good thing because if I had been able to order online this winter I may have been penniless.
Unfortunately this dress doesn't seem to be available online anymore but there are some similar styles in different patterns. I'm really tempted to get another because this one is just so comfortable to wear and is probably the only maxi dress I've ever found that doesn't drag on the floor, being a short 5'3" that's a feat in itself.
Do you prefer maxi dresses in the winter? Have you ever had trouble with the sizing in H&M?
