So yesterday I turned 26. I think that definitely makes me 'late twenties' now, which I just can't get my head around. If you're reading this aged 21 and thinking 26 seems really old and ages away - trust me, I did that too. Then I blinked and here I am. Not that it's a bad thing of course - I've loved being 25 and I'm looking forward to being 26. It's just flying by. I keep thinking about the Sheryl Sandberg story which was in the news recently, and the part where she told a friend, 'Celebrate your birthday god dammit. You're lucky to have each one'. We all complain about getting older but it makes no sense when you put it into perspective. Getting older is a good thing, because getting younger doesn't happen.

Anyway, let's step out of the deep philosophical moment for a second and let's admire this jumpsuit. It is an outfit post after all. I have a confession to make - this isn't mine. My sister, Kirsty, very kindly let me borrow this khaki jumpsuit last weekend, when I was going out for dinner and had been rushing around all day without a second to plan what I was going to wear. I absolutely loved wearing it and since it's such an amazing bargain, I just had to share it with you all. Can you believe this was only £20 from Matalan? It's not a shop that most people think of straight away, but I actually really like it and I've found some really good things in there in the past. It's a hit or miss kind of shop - sometimes there's nothing nice, and sometimes there's loads but at prices like that, it's always worth a wee browse. 

Oh, and a sneaky home update - we've had our decking and fencing finished, as you can see! I love the space it's created, and I'm over the moon that I've also managed to create the perfect spot for last minute outfit photos! 

Do any of you ever shop in Matalan? What's your favourite shop for a bargain? 


p.s Did you know you can follow me on instagram too?

  1. Hope you had a fab birthday! I'm in my late-twenties too which seemed to come around far too quickly for me as well. Luckily when I meet people they always guess that I'm 23! Maybe coz I'm young at heart!

    Love the jumpsuit. Good find by your sister :) Wish I had a sister I could borrow clothes from!


  2. My mum shops in Matalan a lot so whenever I go shopping with her its normally wear we go. I really like a lot of their stuff, especially the shoes!
    Love Hayley,

  4. Matalan seriously stepped their game up recently - they've got fab clothes and homewares too! I'm obsessed with birds lately and the jumpsuit is wicked x
