OOTD: Weekday Casual

So much of my time is spent picking outfits and matching my makeup and accessories, but sometimes there's something to be said for a comfy, casual look for doing the chores!

I honestly didn't know whether it was even worth sharing with you this outfit since there's nothing special to it - it's not glam or dressy, but it is an accurate representation of an outfit I wear when I'm out and about running errands! Today was a day with lots to do from food shopping to dog walking to visiting family, so it was all about comfort and slouchiness, and this baggy vest from H&M is super soft, super inexpensive and super flattering! It does sway towards the slightly booby side at times because of the slub fit, but I think that is also because I got a size bigger, a size 12, to ensure it was flowy and didn't cling anywhere - carbs and sugar, come at me! This loose-fit cardigan is another H&M piece, and I can't get enough of it at the moment with the Spring weather coming in. It is really lightweight and relaxed, yet it acts as a nice little cover-up to pretty much any outfit. I kept the jeans basic with a black super skinny pair from New Look, and kept jewellery to a minimum with my statement gold Michael Kors watch.

As for makeup, I kept it incredibly minimal with one pump of Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation which contains an SPF20, requires no primer and has a lovely natural finish with a good amount of coverage - all buffed in with my absolute fave Real Techniques Buffing Brush from the Core Collection! I can't leave the house without a bit of mascara, and I've been really loving Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara for a while now for its curved brush and ultra-black shade. Normally I pop a bit of lippie on, even to nip to the shops, but today I fancied something a little more nourishing and opted for my beloved Blistex MedPlus (review here) which gives a nice healthy sheen to the lips.

As you can tell, it isn't the most exciting post ever, but people need relaxed clothes too and I wanted to share the H&M pieces with you since I will get loads of wear out of them!
