I do love a good bargain and my £3 find before I went to Rome this year was a strapless top with a bright tropical pattern that was part of Matalan’s beach cover-up range. Matalan is not somewhere I would usually shop, the quality is usually awful and the styles frumpy, but I came across this when searching for a beach towel and I think I’ll be casting my eye over their wares more regularly from now on.
For £3 I wasn’t expecting anything of the ‘support shelf’ and I was right not to… although it was the only thing I could stand to wear when I’d sunburnt my back badly (idiot). But I was also expecting a very thin jersey top that was ill-fitting and probably rode up, but this does neither. One of my happier bargain finds. And I love the pattern.
I can wear it with a floaty skirt and light lipstick for a girly look (not sure why my camera did such a blurry job here!)…
Just a few more weeks of sun, please… let my top have its day!
