Matalan: Cheap Holiday Clothes For the Kids

As you know I'm a lover of fashion but I'm also a lover of bargains too. My mum regularly laughs at the fact that I have a maximum amount that I'll spend on any one item - you won't find me spending £60 on a pair of shoes - what a waste - I'd expect at least 4 pairs for that! In fact, most of my purchases are all sale buys, for the kids I buy a season ahead. At the end of last Summer - just after Little E was born, I was already buying the clothes that she's wearing now. All in perfect condition, just end of the season stuff. Baby clothes can be expensive and while they are so young, clothes only last a couple of months before they end up in the loft so it seems daft to go mad buying designer labels. Now that the Summers here and a holiday is planned, I need to make sure that we can all look great on a budget.

Yesterday I hit my local Matalan store, with a £50 voucher to spend I wasn't sure exactly how many items I could get but I was surprised by how far the money went. Take a look at what I bought...

For Little E...
Navy Spot Summer Dress £6.00
Multi Colour Tiered Swimsuit £6.00

3 Piece Sundress Set £8.00
Mini Nautical Romper £6.00

and for Mister A...
2 Piece Brazil Football Set £5.00
3 Pack of Surf Vests £5.00
2 pack Swim Shorts £5.00

Boys Short Sleeved Stripe Shirt £7.00

All of that for just £49!!! I was amazed but, as per, I couldn't leave the store without finding a little gem of a bargain for myself. I managed to get these Summer sandals for just £2 in the sale!

So many great pieces and all really great value. We do shop at Matalan a lot and the clothes wash well and last too - there aren't many places you can get all of that for such a great price. We'll be heading back for more through the Summer - well it's only fair - I need holiday clothes too!

Disclosure: I received a £50 voucher from Matalan to enable me to post this feature.
