I feel like Matalan have really upped their game recently, both in their homewear and fashion so I thought I’d share a few bits that I picked up from my local store.
I’d been eyeing up these Scandinavian style planters for a while on various websites but didn’t want to pay the price tag so was holding out for somewhere local to stock some. To say I was excited when I saw a complete dupe of the ones I wanted in Matalan is an understatement (but they came in a set of two, yes two, and in different sizes, for less than what I would have paid for one!) My husband definitely thought I was over reacting over what is essentially 2 plant pots with legs. He thinks I’m mad how excited I get over homewear but what does he know eh! I potted an Aloe Vera plant in one and a Monstera Deliciosa (definitely bought the latter because this is supposed to be a plant that isn’t easily killed -we shall see…) They add a pop of colour to our predominantly white and grey interior and make a great addition to our hallway and reading corner.
I didn’t really need another Winter jacket especially with Spring just around the corner, but I couldn’t resist this cobalt blue puffer. I’m usually a black, white and grey kinda gal but for a touch of colour this looks great! I sized up because I wanted a more oversized look, plus I wanted my chunky knits to fit underneath. I’ve been wearing this to run errands and walk the lil sausage and it’s kept me so warm, particularly with all this snow we seem to be getting atm!
Their Activewear section is definitely my go to. When I was in NYC I had splurged on some pretty pricey yoga leggings but after a few washes they looked old and worn so I wasn’t prepared to spend that amount again. I picked up three different styles from Matalan recently and have literally been living in them. They look and feel really good quality; they’re lasting well and are super comfy. I particularly love the black mesh paneled leggings which are totally in this season and makes a standard legging stand out that little bit more. I also grabbed some plain black and marl grey leggings because who doesn’t need them in their wardrobe?
