How I Get Dressed in the Mornings


I am not the greatest morning person. I’m one of those, won’t sleep crazy late but I’m also not excited about getting out of my comfy bed and will snooze the alarm multiple times before I get up. So, this makes getting ready in the morning a #struggle  if I don’t pick out my clothes the night before. I have recently started doing this and let me tell you, it is a game changer!! Not only am I super cute in whatever outfit I picked out because I wasn’t half asleep and wishing I was in bed, but I can snooze the alarm like 2 more times than I would if I didn’t know what I was going to wear! Score!

Therefore, I look for pieces that make outfits themselves, so there is even less thought put into them when it comes to picking out my outfits at night. I mean there is some kind of Real Housewives or Southern Charm situation going on that is far more important. Let’s be real.

With all of this in mind, when I shop now, I look for well fitting pieces that are super cute and don’t need a lot to make an outfit. Enter this shirt (currently on sale for like $50!) I love a good gingham and the color is super cute and on trend. I need to pair it with some blush to really get the full trend going. I also find a great bag makes all the difference when you’re making the perfect outfit. This one was a Nordstrom Rack find, isn’t it GORG?! I’m utterly obsessed and I have a feeling this embroidery trend is here to stay! See how I styled some embroidered shorts here!

Last but not least, my go-to trick to looking put together is a show stopping pair of kicks. These silver mules are perfection. You can’t tell me I’m wrong. The limit does not exist y’all.
