Matalan S/S11

I was pretty gutted not to be able to make it up to London the other week for Matalan’s Spring/Summer 2011 press day, but I needn’t have worried…a couple of days later the new Look Book landed on my doorstep along with some pretty little things so I’m still able to share a few of my favourite pieces with you! With Christmas looming Summer may feel a long way away, but it’ll be here before we know it!

I’m loving (of course) the prominence of florals, and stripes; two of my favourite things ever. I’m already dreaming of summer days and nights wearing the fabulous jumpsuits and dresses. And please, don’t get me started on the shoes! There are strong influences from the 50s, 60s and 70s and together they make one awesome collection that I cannot wait to shop!

What I’m sharing is only a very small selection of what I love, because otherwise we could be here forever! Enjoy…


Double bow floral prom dress £25, school satchel £10, ankle buckle wedge £18


Floppy straw hat £5, pretty vintage floral jumpsuit £22 *NEED THIS!*


Be Beau garden floral shorts £14


Be Beau frill shoulder playsuit £18


Papaya stripe sun dress £16


Floral backpack £10


Statement feather platform £22

Like I said, this really is only the smallest selection, there are SO many killer pieces. The shoes and bags are second to none, both on looks AND price!

I also have a few homeware favourites to share, but that will be saved for another post!

What do you think?! Would you like to see some more of the lookbook? Let me know, I’m happy to share!

    I didn’t expect florals to be big next summer! I don’t know if I’d wear them, wouldn’t suit me. I really like the striped dress though.
