Pretty in Pink with Matalan

Trust me when I say pink is going to be everywhere for Spring/Summer. The girly girl in me is delighted about this and I want to break free of the monochrome and fill my wardrobe with all things rose tinted. I can’t actually afford to do this, in reality, but looking at the new arrivals to Matalan it looks like I might be able to afford a few key pieces.
I love this pale pink graphic blouse, £12. It’s a lovely piece that could be worn for work and play. I’m thinking it’d look pretty cool worn under a denim pinafore dress. Worn with a black pencil skirt and some killer heels it’d be a fierce addition to the workplace as well.
The bomber jacket has been on my radar since Matalan first tweeted about it. I have a voucher burning a hole in my pocket and this is the intended target. It costs £18 and I will live in it all spring. My lightweight jacket from the last couple of years has just about had it’s day so this will be a timely replacement. Absolutely love it.
I’m not usually one for high necks but this top, £10 is almost swaying me. I’m thinking it could be slung on with some slim fit or boyfriend jeans (I’ve turned against skinnies at the moment) or dressed up with some statement accessories for an evening out.
I’ve also seen a preview of THE most gorgeous gingham skirt which I don’t yet have an image for. As soon as I’m back earning after my sick leave, at the bargain price of £16 it will also be mine.
You can really rely on Matalan for on trend, affordable pieces these days. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- this shop has really upped their game!
What trends are you most looking forward to?
