When I saw plaid shirts in stores I immediately thought of Clark Kent in Smallville who loved wearing those – especially in red. I also had a flashback of a blue plaid dress my mom made me when I was much younger – back when plaid and jellies were all the rage.
If you walk into any store now you will see plaid tops, jackets and skirts everywhere in red, blue and green.
I got two plaid shirts from Mr Price the other day – one in red and one in black (yay for online shopping!) I usually wear them with a white tank top and some black/blue skinnies and sneakers. I’m loving the rocker chic look you can create with these tops – just pair them with leather or denim. I am also looking forward to wearing these brown boots I got at Woolworths today which I know will go perfectly with plaid.
A trend I am really excited about is berry lips for winter. When it comes to choosing lipsticks I will always go for coral, but I must say I have fallen head over heels for berry lips. These deep, bold colours are just so inviting!
I have been looking for a while for a great berry but just couldn’t seem to find one that was right. Luckily I finally found this one and bought the Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in 075 Blackberry.
Okay so winter is still a few months away but the shops are already starting to unpack their autumn/winter stock. I’m one of the first people to cling to my summer skirts and sandals, even if that means freezing my tooshie off, because I hate wearing layers of bulky clothing that leaves me feeling like a marshmallow man.
Very rarely do I walk out of Pick n Pay Clothing without a top or cardi. Today I walked out with 2 great jerseys and a top.
I couldn’t decide between the neon jersey or the black one (both would look awesome with jeans and pumps) so I decided to get both (R125 each). The neon one for the days I feel like standing out and black one for every other day.
I also got another top (R69.99) with neon stripes that caught my eye from the bottom of the shelf. It has a boat neckline which I love because they are always very flattering.
In winter I often feel like the clothes are all dreary greys, browns and blacks and this year I can’t wait to look a little more cheerful in neon.
