Lately, I have really been trying to make my everyday getting ready routine a little quicker. I want to be able to get out the door within 10-15 minutes (instead of an hour!) when I have a spare hour here or there to run errands, grab coffee, or take the tyke for a walk. I’m working between editing deadlines, baby naps, meetings, feeding said kid, blogging, drawing up contracts, you name it…so making the most of my time has become crucial! And it just doesn’t make sense to meticulously curl my hair to perfection every single day when I could throw it up into something just as cute and be out the door. (And, now, that I have dyed my hair some, I am trying to cut down on how often I am exposing it to heat.) So, not only have I been trying to pare down the prep time, but I’ve also been sticking to my go-to ‘5 Minute Mommy Chic’ uniform that is one part throw-it-on casual, one part stylish and cute. It’s an easy and ‘effortless’ look that takes 5 minutes to throw together, but still comes off as chic and thoughtful. It’s all about the statement earrings, big top bun, and a bold red lip! They offset the distressed jeans and slouchy sweater in that chic meets casual way that I love so much…and forgive me if I just keep wearing a different version of this same look day after day!
Some of my go-to places to shop for this look…
Statement Earrings: J Crew and Kate Spade and I’ve found some fab earrings via Gilt.
The Perfect Red Lip: NARS…all day, erryday!
Distressed Jeans: Rag & Bone or J Crew.
Sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviators. Of course.
Slouchy Sweaters: I pick these up everywhere from Target to Victoria Secret to Nordstrom!
Flats: Converse Chuck Taylors OR Stuart Weitzman Flats
On-The-Go Bag: Rebecca Minkoff MAC Bag
Delicate Long Layering Necklaces: I pick these up everywhere!
