Talbots Kids, Gap Kids, Am I a Kid?

I just had to share these two outfits featuring kids clothing. I swear all of you are going to think that all I do is shop at children's stores, but I assure that I own some grown up things! Apologies again for the bad picture quality, I'm not getting a new camera until a few days before I return to school, so the BB pictures will only need to be endured for another week or so.
The first outfit I really love. I got the navy and white striped tank from Gap Kids and really bought it to wear with pajamas or my "jorts" for a really comfortable/casual look. For some reason I was just itching to wear the tank top that day and had a birthday party to attend so I dressed up this very casual tank. I added a white J.Crew skirt, an Ann Taylor Loft silk sash with nautical rope detail for a belt, and madras Tommy Hilfiger espadrilles. To dress it up even more, I put my hair in a side swept, low pony and added soft curls.
The next picture is not really an outfit but another kid's clothing item. I got this from Talbots kids right when they were going out of business and cCm and I both got it for a steal of a deal. I have had this for about 2 years now and love it. It is cut very modestly which I really like because a lot of swimsuit cover ups don't actually cover up! I was walking into the CC in this picture and I most often sport this cover up there because it is without a doubt appropriate to go inside with this over my swimsuit. It almost looks as if it's just a casual dress.You cannot tell in the picture bit the whole thing zips up in the front and has a hood attached. It is made out of soft terrycloth and has ruffle detailing.Where do you find your swimsuit cover ups? Do you ever have problems finding modestly styled cover ups? Share your tips on where to shop!
I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Your are so lucky you fit in kids clothing! Very cute outfits. I always wear Ralph Lauren cover ups. The little terry dresses with halter ties.

I have found some amazing deals in the kid's section of The North Face and Patagonia! The pieces are so much less expensive then the adults and friends always ask where I found such a neat fleece, coat, etc..!!

Love the cover-up! I usually look for a terry cloth dress from Juicy, but its hit and miss depending on the trends each season.
