Feeling Sassy in Slovakia | OOTD*

Hey my sassy señors and señoritas!

As you all know, I recently went away to Slovakia with my bae of all baes, Tiff. As well as exploring abandoned castles and eating ALL of the carbs; we (I say we, but the magician behind the lens @creatiffmedia should take the credit here) also took some pretty snazzy photos...

Cause you know, When in Košice!

Waiting for a strange drunk man to leave so I can continue posing. Obvs.

Denim Jacket - Pull and Bear
White Cami - Matalan
Stripe Palazzo Trousers - Matalan
Wedge Block Heels - Matalan
Red Cat Eye Sunnies - Ebay

I was very kindly gifted an outfit from Matalan's new Holiday Shop range - which if you haven't checked out, you seriously need to! There are so many gorgeous prints, beachy dresses, adorable sandals.. and it's all SO affordable! My top, trousers and shoes came to a grand total of £36 which I was amazed at considering the quality of the pieces too. Even better, they stock IT Luggage too, so they're literally a one stop shop for ALL of your holiday essentials!

Can we please just have a moment to discuss how cute these Palazzo Trousers are? I've always struggled to find trousers that flatter my wide hips so I pretty much feel like I've struck gold with these ones. They're only £15 too, and come in so many different patterns and prints, so I definitely think I'll be purchasing a few more before they sell out!

This White Cami Vest was a no brainer for me, it has a really lovely fit and the material doesn't crease easily at all (even after several hours squashed inside an overpacked suitcase). For £6 too, you really can't go wrong, and it's a great basic to have in your wardrobe. I'd recommend sizing up if you're blessed with big boobies though! 

I picked up these funky Cat Eye sunglasses from New Yorker when Tiff and I went on a little shopping spree in Košice, but as they don't ship to the UK *cry* I found what looks like the exact same pair on eBay for £3.99. Don't say I don't love ya!

Side note: I love that my little music tattoo on my wrist is visible in this shot. I'm actually getting another tattoo this week, which I'm SO excited about. All will be revealed on my Instagram in a couple of days...  

All in all, I felt pretty darn sassy in this GORGEOUS Matalan outfit whilst I was away. I've got another holiday coming up very soon, so I can't wait to peruse the collection again before my trip!

Keep your eyes peeled for my 'How to Pack for a City Break' blog post coming very soon, featuring this stylish cabin-sized case from IT luggage.

Have you shopped the new Matalan Holiday range yet? Are you gonna head right over now you've finished this blog post? Yeh I thought so...

Thanks for reading your Dose of Fashion

  3. I haven't shopped at Matalan in YEARS and looking at these clothes, I have absolutely no idea why! Those trousers are absolutely gorgeous and they look so comfortable to wear as well as incredibly stylish! I'm so impressed that you order came to the grand total of £36, Matalan definitely looks like the place to go for a new holiday wardrobe! I'm off to Italy next month and I can't wait, I am looking to invest in some new beach-appropriate pieces, so I will definitely be checking out Matalan's site!
