Sequin This talks festivals essentials
Hi guys, I’m Sarah and can normally be found over at Sequin This- a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog, however I’m here today to talk about festival essentials and your must-have’s when out shopping this weekend. Finally the festival season is creeping up on us and the weather is starting to give us a reminder of what summer actually should be like (if you ignore this week’s drizzle). It was a perfectly legit excuse to shop for a new outfit, especially when I attended Parklife in Manchester over the gloriously sunny weekend. So armed with £50 and the hopes of a full outfit to see me through a day at a festival, I headed to my local Matalan store.

In this month’s edition of the Matalan Style Project, our four fashion bloggers show us how to create four fabulous festival looks, coming in at just under £50 each. These looks provide perfect inspiration for those on a budget, especially after the price of a weekend ticket may have left a large shaped hole in your pocket!
Dress your outdoor living space for summer
Here at Matalan HQ we just love the warmer weather that has greeted us most evenings and weekends recently. There is nothing better than leaving the offfice (sorry boss!), to glorious sunshine and now it has finally made an appearance, its time for us to head outside. One of our fabulous homeware designers, Mags, has shared her top tips on outdoor dining this summer and how to make the most of the weather by taking advantage of our fantastic 3 for 2 offer on our outdoor living collection.
Trend Report: Dress your denim shorts your way
This week in Fashion Sense it’s all about the must have summer staple- denim shorts. Despite the weather taking a turn for the worse from sunshine and blue skies to cloudy with a side of rain, denim shorts are a timeless staple that can be worn with everything from colourful vest tops to a simple white blouse- they are a great addition to every woman’s wardrobe. Our Papaya denim shorts are now 2 for £20 so you would be crazy not to pick up a couple of pairs and get the look without breaking the bank.
We Love: Festival Fashion
With another glorious weekend under our belt, here at Matalan HQ we are getting used to the blue skies and sunshine, however with festival season well and truly underway with Parklife Festival having graced Manchester this weekend, we are detoxing our wardrobes from winter to strictly summer clothes and getting fashion-ready in preparation for hitting the fields around the UK.
Style Project Winner – Spring Wedding
Last month our four fashion bloggers tackled the theme of Spring Wedding, showing us just how versatile our range of dresses can be when paired with some fab accessories. The votes came in thick and fast, but there was one clear winner who was just one step ahead of the fashion pack.
And the winner is… Fiona from Avenue 57!
