Some mornings are just a rush, no matter how much time I give myself! Today I needed to make some snap decisions which resulted in my reliance on patterns.
I find that busy pieces take out any of the effort to create a “look”. Most of what I want to accomplish in terms of style and feel is already meticulously combined in my patterned wardrobe:
Coral + turquoise chevron striped top by Apt. 9 | Navy blue linen pencil skirt by Premise
This top doesn’t need any competition so I chose a simple pencil skirt and decided to do without a belt. I couldn’t quite get my belts to work with the stripes. When i doubt, less is more!
With my morning rush, I had to eat into my normal “watch the morning news while putting on makeup” routine:
I had time for: Tinted Moisturizer | Eyebrows (ALWAYS) | Winged Eyeliner | Mascara | Lip Balm
This morning provides great motivation for me to lay out my outfits the night before. At least to mentally put one together before bed…
