Click and Collect with Matalan

I'm a big fan of Matalan. We are regular shoppers there and it is where I bought one of Bud's most memorable outfits when he was a baby - a sleepsuit for his very first Christmas Eve which read 'Baby's First Christmas'. I remember being so relieved to find it and I still have it in his memory box.

Anyway, enough reminiscing, Matalan have launched a new Click and Collect service from their website which allows you to order online and then collect it from your most convenient Matalan store. I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to test the service for myself and tell you about it. I'm not used to having a shopping trip for myself and it took me quite a while to choose the items I wanted. I did spot some lovely things for Bud, Little Miss and Red Rose Daddy but I concentrated on the task in hand - clothes for me!

As I'm still breastfeeding I need comfortable, relaxed clothes. I'm all set for smarter dresses at the moment but a lot of my day wear is looking tired. I decided I'd choose yet another pair of skinny jeans and look for some comfortable tops to wear. I've also been after a pair of heels to wear with dresses. My Mother in Law showed me a pair of wider fit shoes that she had bought recently and they fitted me really well and I was pleased to see that Matalan had a good range of these. I've been struggling to get shoes that fit as a six is too small but a seven is too big at the moment. A wider fit six fits really well, another seemingly permanent change following pregnancy! So here's what I went for. I loved the look of the tunic top and couldn't decide which colour to go for, so I got both!

Matalan Click and Collect
The Matalan website is incredibly easy to use and in order to choose click and collect you select standard delivery and then choose your most convenient store. Delivery to store is then promised within three days. As well as taking the usual credit and debit cards I was pleased to see that Matalan also accept PayPal, handy for spending any accumulated funds you may have! I placed my order on Tuesday evening and then, on Thursday afternoon, was told that my order had arrived in store - a day early, I went to collect my order on the following day and was greeted at the tills by a really pleasant young man who chatted to me while a colleague went to retrieve my order. He told me that the Click and Collect service is proving really popular and that I was the fifth customer who had come in to claim an order that day. I was in the store less than five minutes and was very pleased with my order when I got it home.

The shoes fit perfectly. I've never bought shoes on line before but decided to take the risk with these as I really liked them and knew they would go with so many items in my wardrobe. The tops are great, so soft and comfortable and perfect worn over a little vest top for easy nursing. I have the skinny jeans in three other colours so they were an easy purchase. I actually thought they were more grey from looking at the photo online but they are a true khaki. I adore scarves at the moment as they are an easy way of wearing something decorative and I can avoid Little Miss pulling on a necklace. I probably won't ever wear all the items together as I am in the terrible photo below but they are all great additions for reviving my wardrobe.
