Haul: Matalan

I love shopping. Perhaps a little too much? But, you know, that's allowed - right?!  So, I was recently sent some gift cards to spend at Matalan, and so for today's post I thought I'd show you what I bought! 

Burgundy Polka Dot Shirt - £10
Cobalt Waffle Knit Jumper - £12
Multicoloured Jumper - £14
Daisy Skater Dress - £7 (not online)

Cobalt blue is a colour I've never considered wearing, to be honest I thought it would look hideous on me. But when I tried this beauty on I decided I had to have it! As you can probably tell, I'm on a bit of a knitwear kick at the moment, and I really like how casual the black jumper is! The daisy dress was half price, so how could I not buy it?! I love skater dresses, and this looks really pretty with chunky, statement jewellery!

Also, here's an insider fact for y'all. Matalan's age 16 is equivalent to a size 12. So, you know, don't forget to check out the Candy Couture line, if you're ever in store! (But, I should probably mention that the cobalt jumper actually comes up rather small!) 

Have you bought anything recently?
What do you think of the things I picked up?



  1. I love Matalan! Everything is so nice, and so well priced! Also the jewellery company they use is the same as for Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and all Arcadia so well worth checking out :) love the jumper, I have one in cobalt too, it's so eyecatching! India xx

  3. I really like a lot of clothes from Matalan but I always forget about them when I shop online, their clothes are so reasonably priced though!

  4. Lovely picks! I do love Matalan! The shirt is really nice. :)

  5. Totally adore everything in this post.

  6. Some gorgeous pieces! I bet they look great on you!
    I wish we had a Matalan nearer to where I live, they always have some great clothing in there! :)
