Hey guys! It's Sophie.
Here I am.
I think one of my favourite types of days is when it's really bright and sunny, but still all crisp and Wintery. Today was one of those days, so I thought I'd share my outfit with you! It's not quite as cold in Plymouth as it is in the West Midlands where I think they've had snow, I love snow but we've stayed around 6 - 8 degress down here. My outfit today kept me warm, but was a bit lighter than the massive parka and ugg boots uniform I've been in for the past few days due to the constant rain!
My trusty black leggings were around £8 from Matalan a while ago, they are stirrup leggings and this is why I love them, nothing is worse than leggings riding up my leg! My plain black suede boots are from Primark and I'm pretty sure they were £8 too, they go with everything and are really easy to throw on, except when it's been raining because they literally absorb all moisture within a ten mile radius and I end up with soaking feet :(
I liberated this jumper from my mom's wardrobe a while ago, she's had it for a long time and doesn't remember where from. I love nothing more than being swallowed by huge chunky knit jumpers in the colder months so this oversized fit is perfect.
I usually wear my hair up during the day, and I don't think you can ever go wrong with a messy bun. I washed my hair last night and put it straight into a bun, slept on it, and this is pretty much how I woke up, I just bobby pinned a few stray bits into place. I find the best way to achieve the effortless look is to not make any effort :p
I recently watched a brilliant video by Pixiwoo on YouTube, talking about how the makeup trends forecast for Spring and Summer features a lot of sepia. It may be a tad optimistic to think that there's the faintest hint of Spring in the air just yet, but I love sepia and it was sunny so I gave it a try. I don't have a true sepia eyeshadow, but really liked the effect I got from an orangey, yellowey, goldy, slightly shimmery shadow in my MUA Heaven & Earth palette. Remember camel? I think I'd describe it as camel.
Heres my face:
I also wore a really thin line of dark brown eyeliner on the top, just to define my lash line (Black Brown by Elizabeth Arden) and a dark brown, almost black but not quite mascara (Astonishing Long & Rich Mascara from Avon, in Brown Black). My lipstick is Hue by Mac - the perfect light, pinky, nudey shade that's not too light, too pink or too nude, if you know what I mean!
I wore my beloved £10 New Look boyfriend coat, as discussed here.
And a thick woolly loop scarf to snug it up a bit! My bag was £16 from Peacock's and my mansized rose gold watch is Michael Kors.
