I think the winter will be wonderful.

Just as I was putting the finishing touches to last week’s post about Matalan’s gorgeous dress selection, an email popped into my inbox asking if I’d like to have a nosy at their Autumn/Winter collection. Despite being firmly in summer mode now – oh so many florals, I LOVE IT – I couldn't resist, so off I went to London to sneak a peek and hang out with some of my favourite bloggers.


I loved this spotty dress – I pointed it out to Amy and she instantly said how ‘me’ it is – yep, I have a style and it’s predictable! I adore how they’ve styled it, too. I've always been cautious about scarves but this is making me think again.


This is gorgeous, although I think it’s quite summery – one to wear with a long cardi and a belt in the winter, and then rock out with bare limbs in the summer, perhaps.


This cape is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Praying my sister is expecting a girl so I can buy her it!


I love that they included home stuff, too. I love home stuff. It's one whole new thing to buy accessories for! They even have cute doormats. IT IS SO HARD TO FIND CUTE DOORMATS.


Amy and Lucy were fighting over this poncho – I think there’s going to be a riot when this hits stores. Amy won this round...


Thanks, Matalan, for a lovely evening – and it was so lovely to hang out with some of my favourite blogging ladies, Amy, Jen, Lucy and Sherin!

  4. Ahhh! , those dresses are beautiful!. I'd love to have a dress like any of the above but in my country they are not really popular among girls :( .

    And those boots were love at first sight! <3

    I've been your reader for a while but this is my first comment I think.

  5. That sheer dress is pure nom. I'm never a matalan fan usually...i just don't think their stores are nice to shop around, but 2bh this has shamed me into checking it out properly next time! x

  6. I am prepared to inflict actual bodily harm on anyone who is foolish enough to try and keep me away from that peacock necklace and that poncho. LOVE.

  20. I'm glad snoods are still going to be around, they are so fun to knit. And as a magpie, I love that shiny peacock! and finally, capes are magical, to make, wear and buy. I have so many
