On the 18th of March I was kindly invited to the opening of the new Matalan store here in Aberdeen. When I arrived there was a mass of people queuing and waiting for the red ribbon to be cut. As shoppers entered the store there was a DJ and big balloons in classic Matalan red decorated the shop floor. As a guest I was given £50 worth of vouchers to spend in store on the day. I was surprised at the variety of clothes available for my age range - I used to think of Matalan as a 'mum store' but they have definitely upped their game.
The store is massive and it has everything from womenswear to accessories and even has an amazing home wear section. I was also surprised at how reasonably priced everything was. Overall, a successful shopping trip. So, now I am going to show you how I styled the things I picked up in store.
I am obsessed with animal print so 2 things I bought are actually leopard print. The first thing I picked up was this leopard print turtle neck. A staple piece that I think will go with loads of different things. On a recent trip to Edinburgh I styled it under a denim boiler suit.
Top - Matalan
Boiler Suit - Primark
Trainers - Schuh
Next, I picked up this oversized, boyfriend style, grey cardigan. I'd actually thought about buying a similar cardigan to this so I was pleased when I seen this one in store. I also picked up this straw bag - very on trend for Spring/Summer. I decided to style them together with a pair of mom jeans.
Lastly, I found this red leopard print button front skirt - again the midi-skirt trend is massive right now! I styled mine with a black turtle neck, leather jacket and trainers for a casual look.
Skirt - Matalan
Top & Sunglasses - Primark
Jacket - Zara
Trainers - Schuh
Socks - ASOS
