Well it makes me happy, what better way to express your inner self by dressing the part. I don’t know about you but I have more then one type of style. My styles include sporty, casual, dress to impress and then my pj's look. I will confess, as good as I may dress some days, there are days that you probably won't even recognize me (the days I prefer to skip looking in the mirror).
It's winter in Cape Town, not my favourite season but it's the season to layer up. To follow are some great winter items that can help you make sense of the mess in your dresser that this season can cause. Let's all just admit it, dressing nicely in the winter is confusing and exhausting.
Winter can make us feel dull so instead of buying a plain black or cream jacket rather invest in a printed jacket/coat. It will give your outfit life and you will definitely stand out more. And for those who are bolder that I am, go for funky yellow or a stunning red.
Scarves are the perfect piece to accessorise so colour up! Never wear a scarf the same colour as your top layer, be daring and break away from wearing the same colour or too many earthy colors. It surprising how a beautiful scarf can brighten up your look. I have the basic colour scarfs, but love unique patterns with a dash of colour. It’s the perfect accessory to brighten up your outfit.
I love wearing leggings, jeggings and all the other "-eggings" I can find in winter. For me it was always just black, but now I am a proud owner of maroon leggings. I thought that breaking away from the black will make my legs look fat, but I was wrong, surprisingly it looks great.
Bodycons/dresses and skater skirts
I use to only wear skinnies and leggings during winter. This year my stylist demanded change. Vicky hit me with a bang by choosing some stuff I would never even consider looking at, never mind trying them on! Never in my life I would dare to wear orange, never mind an animal print and letters on a piece of clothing but I love my new bodycon but my favourite is my orange print skater skirt. These work great with black stockings and ankle boots.
Night out to town outfit
I like to dress up when I go out to town. That outfit that is just to fancy or sexy for work… well I just had to get this little number and this upcoming Saturday is my brother in-law’s big birthday party so can’t wait to wear it.
Wish list item
Jumper from Lipsy London! Don’t you just love it. Even on the hanger I knew this will be a winner and yes I love it but my bank account not so much though…
Make up: These lips were made for talking…
I got both these as a gift and love it. During the day time, I like to wear my Mac Pro Longwear Lipcreme (sweet ever after) and a night out to town I wear my Mac Red Lipstick.
She loves anything Hello Kitty and just like her mom she loves hearts… just love these items from Woolworths.
I would love to see the new additions to your wardrobe so please post a picture of your outfit to my Facebook, twitter or email me.
