Not being able to get abroad just yet certainly doesn’t mean we can’t treat ourselves to cute summer clothes, more so in this crazy intense heat wave that has surprised us over the last few weeks. Matalan have clothes for you to create memories for staying at home, days in the garden, and trips out.
When out and about with Belle and Finn, I need clothes that I’m comfortable in and don’t restrict me. These high waisted, buckle belt shorts are super comfortable. I chose to dress the shorts casual with trainers and a sweet puff sleeve top also from Matalan. But I also plan on wearing them with wedges and a strappy vest top one evening, if we manage to get away this year. I always get my trainers from Matalan, as they are comfortable and very good quality.
My go to outfit is a smock dress, they make me feel comfortable and confident, even on my days of not feeling confident with my postpartum body. This dress is the perfect length just above my knee, and is made of 100% viscose, so really light and really cool on those hot days in the garden. I love the monochrome print too, keeping up with the fashion trends as always.
Matalan have the sweetest baby outfits at the moment. Lots of outfits with frills and little collars which I sway towards. This little outfit is so beautiful and can be adjusted to grow with your baby which I love. The little vest I have already paired with other outfits too, so it’s getting lots of wear.
Finn’s my little explorer always running around at 100mph, which I think most 3 year olds are. So it’s important (especially on hot days) that he’s in cool clothing.
Matalan have a lovely range of shirts for boys, including this grandad collar shirt. I love to dress Finn in shirts as he looks smart, but also keeps cool wearing them.
They also have a lovely range of shorts for boys in various colours. They are so versatile and can be dressed up or down. Finn wore his stripe cotton shorts to the farm, which we dressed down with a T-shirt and jelly shoes– also both from Matalan.
Ash’s outfit 9 times out of 10 involves a shirt. Ash will usually roll the sleeves up on a long sleeved shirts, so Matalan’s wide range of short sleeve shirts were perfect for him and they come in a vast range of colours too. He’s worn the linen shirt with both jeans and these Matalan shorts with both going equally well.
Matalan have some great pieces in at the moment to suit all family members. We are loving Matalans summer range and you can shop our looks and more here!
