Some days you just want to roll out of bed, throw your hair up in a top knot, shimmy into one of your go-to graphic tee’s and head out the door. Aaaaand on most of those days you’re most likely headed somewhere you should really look a bit more put together!

If you want to catch some extra ZzZz’s but you don’t want to look like you’ve just crawled out of bed, here are a few easy steps to jazz up your outfit and walk out the door fresh faced and feeling great!

1. throw on your favorite flouncy skirt 2. layer on few simple, everyday jewels 3. add a great blazer/jacket 4. pull on a pair of fun tights & 5. slide your feet into a pair of comfy shoes that also supply you with some height! As for makeup, a little concealer to cover up any dark spots or blemishes, a nice winged eye, a touch of mascara and a bold lip and you are ready to run out the door with a little pep in your step!

I’m not sure about anyone else, but if I’m not feeling my best in the morning, it usually sets the tone for the rest of the day! Whether I have 2 hours or 20 min to get ready in the morning, I’ve tried to master my time management skills so that I always leave feeling tip-top!

Hope these tips help you maximize your “get ready” time & aid in you feeling super confident and ready to take on the day even when you only have a few minutes to spare!  Its all about that go-getter mindset!

P.S. Thank you to my wonderful boyfriend Brian Edelman for supporting me, encouraging me and taking these lovely photos to help me fulfill a long time dream. I think its safe to say you’re my #1 fan! I’m a lucky gal 😉
