Most mornings, I don’t have a ton of time to get ready for the day before I’m taking the kids to school. After my morning workouts, I grab a shower and do a quick “get ready” routine, because I know that if I take a few minutes to get ready for the day and not look like I rolled out of bed, it works wonders for my productivity. Here’s my fave 5 items I reach for lately to help me feel put together getting out the door!
Hat // Perfect for hiding unruly hair, and the fun cheetah print is a plus!
Underwear / Bra // These are my go to…the scallops are cute, they don’t show any lines (whether it’s the bikini or thong version), and they come in a variety of color sets. Watch for a Lightning Deal and stock up! Also, the bra was an impulse purchase after I read about how many rave reviews it got…for under $10 I am seriously impressed and don’t miss underwire at all!
Earrings // Cadorah is a Waukesha-based woman-owned small business has the CUTEST jewelry and even some clothing too! I love the blush and gold color in the latest pair of earrings I got. Not too heavy on my ears either! Earrings are such an easy accessory that make me feel put together and feminine. I usually reach for simple options, like gold stud earrings, but a statement earring can go a long way in elevating an outfit!
Sweater // I’ve learned my lesson over time: buying cheap sweaters is a no go for me. The ones from Target, Old Navy, even Gap don’t last compared to higher quality sweaters. For the amount I buy from those places, I can invest in one really nice sweater that stands the test of time…and my go to is Everlane. Their cashmere sweaters are soft and cozy without making you overheat and are a classic, versatile piece in my closet. I have both the v-neck and crewneck versions. Watch for sales from Everlane too!
Boots // I had been wanting some black/cream ankle boots in black, but a simple search on DSW showed they were upwards of $100 or more. I found these from Walmart (they come in camel with red laces too) and they are SUPER cozy, true to size and so pretty. The best part? They are only $15!
