So Long January // Plaid and Sparkles

31 January 2013


I thought I'd sneak in a quick outfit post before January is up. This is one of my current 'go-to' outfits when I just can't be that bothered, which...I'll be honest, has been quite a large portion of January. It's just such a cold and dreary month, it makes me want to lay on my sofa and do little else. I'm quite happy to be seeing the back of it and hoping it's all up from here.

When I have had to do something, this oversized plaid shirt has been a comfy option that I've thrown on a few more times than I care to admit. Mine's from Uniqlo a few months back, but if you're after the same oversized style you could always just buy a men's plaid shirt. Currently, you'll mostly find me wearing mine with black leggings and a jacket or vest (like the pics). I reckon it's going to be slowly transitioned into my 'lazy spring wardrobe' with some skinny jeans and sparkly pumps, though. 

Plaid is one of those timeless things that works it's way in and out of fashion trends. It's casual and durable and although it's not the most feminine of prints (nothing very ladylike about lumberjacks is there!) if you contrast it with some sparkly accessories it can look fab! I'm partial to pairing mine with my gorgeous 'Audrey' necklace from EllandEmm on Etsy and a little arm candy too, of course!

Who else loves a plaid shirt for the casual easy option? How do you wear your plaid?
