Matalan Style Project: Heritage

The majority of the clothes in mine and the boys wardrobes are from Matalan. When I saw that they were looking for Bloggers to take part in a style challenge I jumped at the chance to join in.
I was sent a £50 voucher to go to my nearest store and buy items to fit with their theme of Heritage.
I panicked slightly at the theme at first but then had a think about the sort of items I could wear and headed to the store with an idea in mind.

I came home with this outfit.

It's not something I would normally wear but I think it really fits the theme of Heritage. In fact in the past I've tried on shirts and chinos and neither have suited me or fit properly so I was delighted when I found these and that they fit!

The shirt is warm, perfect for autumn walks in the country.
The chinos are perfect for a stroll in the country, climbing over stiles, jumping over logs, and running after the boys.
The wellies are so cool and really different. They add a slightly 'punk'-ish style to the overall look but I thought the lace effect was really in at the moment and was better than plain wellies as they can be placed with a number of different outfits. They are really comfy and I love the shorter style of them rather than the ones which stop close to the knee.
And finally I think the scarf is a fab finishing touch. Not only to make the outfit more feminine, and a little brighter, but also because it is covered in a bird print. Birds = Countryside.  It's all about the attention to detail.

I'd really love it if you could take the time to vote for me on the Matalan Style Challenge Blog Post.
