Holiday Wear with Matalan
Well hello little ray of sunshine and an unusually bright outfit.
It’s surprising but I do actually tend to wear brighter coloured clothes on holiday than I would typically wear in the UK. Even with this burst of heat we’re having at the moment I’m still sticking to my fashion favoured darker shades because I’m typically an Autumn/ Winter girl at heart.
However, a little known brand called Matalan contacted me and asked me if I’d be interested in throwing together a summer themed blog post. With my long weekend away coming up and a chance to dip my mellow yellow painted toes into some more colour I jumped at the chance.
Of course I would have to have a little black in there somewhere. But I chose this floral printed swing skirt which is super comfortable and a flattering shape. If you’re heading to the beach it’d be great as a cover up teamed with a bikini top as it’s the perfect length to get those pins tanned and still walk around with your modesty.
I also find that whenever you turn the heat up I hate wearing anything with straps and my jewellery gets stripped back to basics. But I feel naked without anything on my neck or wrists so I chose this beaded choker necklace that adds the ‘I’ve made lots of effort’ effect when really you’ve thrown on the first outfit at the top of your suitcase.
The bag I chose is perfect for walking around in the sun or heading to the beach. An ombre effect with large rope handles and a Mary Poppins style interior that fits more than it looks. It’s a great day time bag for holiday to carry around those sun protecting necessities with a laid back slouchy design.
