Outfit posts and makeup photo of the days have never been my forte but after reading Anna Saccone's blog and youtube - she manages to consistently provide casual outfit posts that are actually achievable. She does hauls every few months and creates numerous outfit posts with the same clothes. I love this idea - I think some fashion bloggers have a new outfit every week that for readers like you and I, this is unrealistic unless you're being handed clothes on a plate or can afford it.
I thought I'd do my own take on Anna's style of outfit posts and give you my casual looks and show my outfits for you for simple effortless looks. Luckily my boyfriend has been my helpful photographer and has helped me not look so clumpy and robotic for these photos!
The outfit I'm sporting for a casual Saturday which involves a picnic and a bit of DIY is a new top from Mango. It is from their basics range and is a lightweight long sleeve top that is soo soft and so airy. It's slightly batwing but looks really effortless on. It is the dolman sleeve t-shirt which is from their sale for £7.99 you can get the last few here [LINK] these are really long too so cover the bum if you wear with leggings - I tucked mine into my shorts as it would have looked like I was wearing nothing otherwise!
My shorts are from H&M and although I knew I had WAY too many pairs when I saw these - they were right up my street! The floral tree light design in blue and pink on cream denim are perfect for everyday use, down the beach or as a dressed up short with a blouse. These were also only £7.99 and I think are a firm favourite of the pairs I currently own! [LINK] (P.S they are only £6.29 on H&M online! In loads of different patterns and styles too!)
For makeup I am wearing Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 51, Essence Make Me Brow Mascara, Benefit Hoola Bronzer, Benefit Dandelion Blush, Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Pallete, Rimmel Scandaleyes Khol Pencil and MAC Hue Lipstick.
Do let me know what you think of my first 'look of the day' kind of post? These are more personal updates to my life too and how I style hair/makeup so kind comments appreciated as always!
