HOLIDAY OUTFIT INSPIRATION | In Partnership with Matalan

Wednesday, 19 June 2019

There's something about holiday shopping that is way more exciting than regular shopping. I think it might be because we don't have the climate here in the UK to always manage to have an outfit idea come to fruition so knowing that the sun is going to be shining and the dresses and sandals combination are going to be a favourite, always makes the experience better! I headed to my local Matalan to see what they had in store and what lovely pieces I could pick up to style together on our recent family holiday to Lanzarote, Canaries.



It's funny, my aesthetic is always a bit matchy-matchy. Sometimes even unintentionally and especially with the kids. I love them to coordinate in some shape or form in their clothing so the 'Mini Me' range in Matalan is right up my alley! These Flamingo swimmie and shorts also come in adults sizes too so the whole family can join in. Ella and Charlie both realised themselves that they were wearing the same design and requested to wear them again a further twice on our break!



At least once on holiday I like to get smartly dressed and go out for a nice family meal. If I feel good in something, comfortable and confident I know it will project on the outside too. This beautiful button down denim dress is a real staple for a summer wardrobe, there's so many ways you can wear it. I teamed it with some real crisp white toe cuff sandals that really complimented my holiday glow but when we go home I'm planning to layer it with a basic tee and some trainers for a more relaxed look. This canvas bag was our Mary Poppins bag of the trip. It held the snacks, electronics, money, sunglasses, suncream, magazines... the list goes on! I'm obsessed with the handle, it's really on trend at the moment and comes in at an incredible price.





The kids looked beautifully fresh in light neutrals, Ella's dress has some gorgeous broderie anglaise detailing on the scalloped edge and Charlies shorts finished with the braces were very smart.





You know what they say, 'Twinning is Winning!' Everyone loves a Mummy and Ella twinning photo, they're some of my most viewed posts on instagram. Here we have gone for a bit of a mix and match approach. Although not the exact same dress, we are rocking the double denim. She also pinched my headband which is from the ladies section but looks wonderful on her and compliments the monochrome dalmation print sandals I'm wearing - which has to be said are crazy comfortable! It was nice to have hands-free with the little belt bag too, it fit in all the essentials and looked really cute.

Never failing to disappoint, Matalan certainly have some really special items available that don't cost the earth and are excellent quality. A few of the items I've shown have now gone into sale so you can check them out using the links listed below and grab yourself a bargain!
