WhatLauraWore & My Make Up: Fair Isle-ing Into Spring

Last Saturday I posted a quick snap of this outfit on Instagram and it  received a lovely warm welcome from those who follow me on there.  Now that all of my Valentines posts are out of the way I thought I’d post this outfit on here and let you know where I got everything from, as always.

The outfit centres around my new Reverse Fairisle Cardigan from Bonmarche. Bonmarche is a shop I would have usually classed as being for women who are a little older than me but I was really surprised by some of their items after passing by my local store a couple of weeks ago.  They have some great key pieces and their swimwear is gorgeous- I’ve got my eye on a black and leopard print swimsuit for my holiday this summer, needless to say, I’m surprised and impressed!  Plus they have a gorgeous animal print blazer that I’ve got to show you all next week but for now, lets take a look at the Reverse Fairisle Cardigan.  It’s warm but light weight, making it perfect for spring.  It looks equally as good open as it does with the poppers done up, creating quite the preppy, classic look.  I’m wearing it with some jeggings, a simple white vest top and some white Flossys, making it an uber casual but pulled together look.  The bag I’m carrying is from Jane Norman and I love it with this outfit as it really pulls out the gorgeous blues in the cardigan.  I can’t wait to wear them together in the summer with some white linen trousers.  Oh and the price? £20 what a bargain!

While I was getting ready to go out, I had some time to snap the make up products I was using so I thought I’d show you what I was wearing on my face too in this everyday makeup look.
