I've never done a smart VS casual look on my blog before, so I thought it was about bloody time I did one. I picked these ASOS white wide leg trousers because they have been sitting in my cupboard not having a lot of wear time. This is mostly because a) they are REALLY white and I will spill coffee on them before I walk out of the door and b) I hadn't given much thought on how I would style them. I love the contemporary feel and look of them, so even though they are typically formal looking; styled with an oversized jumper they can also look super casual. I wore them with Birkenstocks for my casual look which is not very appropriate for this time of year but I just cannot depart from the Birks just yet (even with frost bitten toes!).

I included the makeup which I used to create my full look. These are also staples to my everyday makeup routine:

  • MAC face and body foundation
  • MAC pro long concealer
  • MAC lipstick in 'twig'
  • Urban Decay Naked basic Palette (seriously the best thing EVER- I use the darker brown shade for my eyebrows)
  • Urban Decay in 'Naked 2'
  • Benefit Porefessional
  • Benefit Sugarbomb blusher 
  • Benefit High Beam
  • BedHead bronzer
  • Mabeline Matte Maker powder
  • Chanel Chance Perfume
