Rockabilly Nautical from Matalan


I made these cigarette pants last week, in an attempted to expand my casual wardrobe.  I also made them again in Navy.  The navy pair have a very nautical feel to them.  After reading Retro Chick's post on the iconic stripped t-shirt.  It inspired me to get one.  Me being a lazy shopper, was thankful for her recommendations of where to buy them on the high street.  I like the Matalan one she suggested as i like the width of stripes.

£7 Matalan

I have never shopped in Matalan before, think the last time i went in there was when you had to have a special members card to enter the store.  Do they still do that?

I thought i would have a look and see what other bargains i could find.  There was allot of nautical things, perfect for the Rockabilly girl.  Here are a few of my favourites!

These are such a bargain!  The cute red waist belt in red only £4 and a blue one with a fun anchor on it, £4.  Or fancy a more subtle belt, check out this two pack for £3.
Or this cute hair bobble for, £2.50.
I love wedge sandals, they are my wardrobe staple for the summer.  Look what i have found.  Only trouble choosing which ones to buy!

Stripey ones for £16 and blue polka dot ones for again £16. These are are a bargain £8 for canvas espadrilles and they come in three nautical colours.


  1. I looooove Matalan, it's highly underrated for decent clothes at a pretty bargain price. My favourite ever purchase was a pair of really dark, high waisted denim pedal pushers, very 50's!! Sometimes there's a fair bit of 'yuck' to wade through, but I've found some real gems in my local Matalan :0)

  2. I'm such a sucker for anything nautical. Thanks for sharing. Need to go check out Matalan.

  3. I'm crazy about Matalan because of its great stuff. I'm going to do shopping online at Matalan on discounted rates by using Matalan discount code.
