MAKEUP-LESS THURSDAY

rag & bone Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

Two things I love during cold winter days are 1. the feel of my bare face in the sun, while staying warm with 2. the ultimate beanie. Unfortunately I don’t feel confident enough to go makeup less every day of the week, especially not when I’ve had a night without much sleep – read: two toddlers in-between Thomas and me, who decide it’s morning around 3AM. But luckily we have sunglasses, and I wear those when not wearing any make-up on. Or, in today’s case, I make sure my photographer captures me with just the right amount of light on my face…

But let’s get back to those beanies, because needless to say, the one I’m wearing today is quite a statement one. No surprises then when I tell you it’s rag & bone – the brand I’ve loved since I moved to London, and which also was one of first fashion shows I saw when I moved to New York. Needless to say, we go way back. And I’m loyal, to friends who work for the brand, and the brand itself. So when I tell you that rag & bone’s statement beanies are exactly what I think we should all be investing in right now – especially with still quite some cold months ahead of us – it’s not because I have to, but because I truly feel the need to share my love for the brand with you. Moreover, I’m sure you already have a black and gray beanie, and not one in burned-orange or burgundy, so….

In any case, I’ve invested in a couple of colored beanies this winter. One in bright red, one with red stripes, and this one, in burned-orange and beige. And while compulsively going over the accessories page of rag & bone, I realized the mens section has plenty of cool ones too. Which actually only made it harder to pick. Though my strategy might be to get also one for Thomas, one that I can wear too, and then enjoy two extra statement beanies in my wardrobe this winter… Do you ever shop mens too? Shall I go for that one with the logo on it too?

YOUR THOUGHTS

  • I also love wearing beanies (especially in combination with no make-up, hahaha)! Your beanie is really cool and I assume you really need it in Toronto! Love your boots as well! Big Xx Susanne – http://bagatyou.com

  • Firstly, you look amazing without any make up on! You shouldn’t feel so conscious because you look fabulous! Secondly, I have just about discovered that I love beanies and I like the way they look on me so I’m just about exploring that area of accessories! I love the colour of yours and clearly I need to get myself a good rag and bone one!

      Thanks Shloka! It’s maybe that I’m more conscious because of my job, I don’t know, but I feel good, with or without make-up. And that’s something too! Xx

  • Greetings from The Canaries! I’m loving your beanie Charlotte, it looks fab paired with your bomber. You have gorgeous skin & look incredible sans make up. If you want a light layer of SPF 50 with a slight tint, try Chanel’s CC cream, it’s great for those no make up kind of days, I really recommend.

  • I love to not wear makeup in the colder months too because I feel like the cold temperatures make my skin look nice, is it just me? But anyways, that’s a lovely beanie.

      Exactly! It’s funny right, though sometimes it’s quite a shocker then when I’m back home and see my bare face. Not that I don’t love my face without make-up, but when I am tired, I look tired, nothing I can hide that better with than a pair of sunnies, or some concealer.. But in any case, the feeling of a bare face on a cold winter day is priceless. We should keep doing it nonetheless! Xx

  • Oh wow, you are a STUNNER! And that beanie is pretty amazing too.
