It feels wrong to be writing this post while wearing a bikini, holding a cocktail, lathered in carrot oil and sat by the pool in Turkey but I've been reading a book about blogging and only a few pages in, I've found the sudden urge to write a post that I saved as a draft over a month ago.. finally.
Anyone who knows me knows I love Autumn.. dark nails, dark lips, cosy nights in.. oh, and a whole new wardrobe. This is why I was so over excited about a month ago when I went into Matalan on the day of their new launch! I'd had some holiday pay after leaving my job so I thought I'd treat myself to some new bits ready for the new season. There was SO much to choose from and I was so surprised at the massive variety of perfect clothing outfit ideas they had on display.
I must've spent over an hour walking around the store but managed to pick a few staple items for my new Autumn wardrobe.. a shirt, a skirt, a new bag (which I've become obsessed with!), pumps.. you name it. I tried to pick out pieces that I could wear together or with clothing I knew I already had.. I knew the green skirt would go with a basic T or a nice blouse.. I envisioned the checked shirt over a black casual dress or even over t shirt and jeans. Hmmm.. *day dreams in my own Pinterest brain wardrobe*.
Anyway.. everything came to less than £100 and because I downloaded the App there and then in store, I got 10% off too. A lot of people don't think about Matalan when shopping but this is definitely one to try if you're a fashion lover this Autumn.
Back to the cocktail ;)
