On the countdown to Christmas I feel obliged to wear a bright red lip frequently and start swapping my flat white, to a Christmassy special. Around this time of year is when my constant sporting of monochrome outfits comes in handy, as they really let bright red lippy pop. Some might argue my following statement but, for me, believe it or not, is quite a Christmassy outfit!
Lets start with the huge (amazing) specs on my face. Glasses just add a little quirkiness to an an outfit don't they, and recon if I had worn my contacts, the overall look would be so different. I really love adding lots of different elements into an outfit such as this. I've thrown a red lip, fluffy jumper, layering, gold detail, a pom pom and a little touch of smart with my shoes of choice all together. I never do it on purpose, and never think 'oh lets mix that texture with that'. I just grab what I want and go with it.
I'm really into subtle jewllery at the moment and loving my small dainty studs from Jewellery Box. As they're so small I leave them in day after day. And, being sterling silver, they don't aggravate my ears at all (which I know some people suffer with). The other accessory to this outfit which is actually really new, is the Pom Pom. Superdrug were having a deal that when you buy three beauty products, you get a free Pom Pom (on trend or what) so naturally this became the thing I had to do that day and actually really like it with this get up.
