This outfit of the day is perfect for casual occasions and days when it’s cold but you still want to look cool.

I’ve always held back from wearing jeans and I didn’t wear them (or trousers etc) for over two years but bought some last year in the winter period when it was cold. I didn’t like wearing jeans because I’m really self conscious about my legs but I just thought fuck it and to not care what people think about me.

I’m glad I did because I feel more relaxed in them and don’t have to worry about them blowing up and showing my knickers when it’s windy.

This year I really wanted some flares as they’re really in ATM and I also liked the frayed jeans.

For some reason I was lucky and found some on New Look’s website so I ordered them. I must say I was skeptical about them not fitting me as I have big thighs and bum and a small waist.

I tried them on and was so glad they were stretchy because now I have two pairs of jeans! Yey me.

I’m obsessed with striped T shirts, especially long sleeved ones, and this one was in the sale at H&M so it was a must-buy.

As for the converse they go with literally anything and are probably my comfiest shoes. I like the casual look they give to the outfit.

Also I got the bag for Christmas and it has elephants on it so it must go with everything- yes because elephants are the best it means the bag goes with everything.

Finally, if it’s cold (which it is) I like to add my long duster jacket as it makes it look really relaxed and kind of an 80’s style.

GRWM: Casual look

Tuesdays are my days off uni so me and my friend planned to go to the cinema and Christmas markets in Manchester.

When I’m doing something casual like this I like to go for the more natural makeup look and comfy clothes. My hair just depends on how much it needs a wash (gross I know) and today it needed a wash very badly.

For my makeup I’ve gone for a natural brown shadow, my hair is in fishtail plaits, and I’m just wearing a t-shirt and dungaree dress.

Face products I used:

  • No7 Airbrush Away Pore Minimising Primer
  • PS strobing highlighting cream
  • No7 Stay perfect foundation
  • PS volumising mascara
  • No7 beautiful eyebrow sculpting pencil
  • MAC blusher (Desert Rose)
  • MAC eyeshadow (Charcoal Brown)
  • MUA cover and conceal
  • PS contour stick
  • Collection clear brow mascara
  • PS velvet matte lipstick crayon

Clothes:

  • ‘Run forest run’ Bubba Gump t-shirt
  • Topshop pinafore dress
  • Boohoo fedora hat

Jewellery:

  • Pandora leather bracelet & charm (worn as necklace)
  • Casio watch
  • Pandora rings (Aquamarine birthstone and flower)

So that was my first ever ‘get ready with me’. I’m not the best at makeup but I try and I’d like to try new things but I have to be careful with what foundation I use as my skin is acne prone.

If I could change anything it would be my eyebrows as they currently look like slugs but as you know I’m trying to grow them out so I need to leave them alone as much as I can regarding the plucking.

If you have any tips and tricks then I’d be happy to hear them.
