OOTD Matalan Style Project

If you follow my blog you will know that I am a fan of Matalan as I think they do offer some fabulous on trend pieces at affordable prices! They asked me to take part in the Style Challenge for their blog and I agree but that was before I need the Challenge was to put together a colour blocking outfit! I love the trend but the truth is I do shy away from colour!

When I went in store I did struggle a little with the choice as I felt that (in my store at least) there wasn't many colour blocking pieces although they had some fabulous tribal and aztec pieces which I can't wait to get my hands on!
I know that floral doesn't quite fit the Colour blocking challenge but there really wasn't very many things that did fit and were quite the right length for me! I do love the shorts, they were £14 in a light weight fabric and perfect for summer! However, my favourite thing which I picked up were the shoes- I love them! I think sometimes when wearing a colourful outfit it is quite nice to wear nude shoes in order to make the outfit more wearable but I have been wearing them lots since I got them!
  Blue Vest £3; Flower detail ballet pumps £12; Gold hoops £4; Ring £4; Floral shorts £14; Owl Necklace £4

The three other bloggers to take part were Fashion Train, Really Ree and Magpie Girl which I think are some of the best UK fashion Bloggers! Their outfits were great and really worth having a look at!

I would really love it if you could have a look at all the outfits on Matalan blog and possiblyy even vote for me here!

  2. That's a really cute outfit! Unfortunately everything clotheswise in matalan doesn't fit me well - too tall :( I agree with the nude shoe part but I do love me some colour!
