Yesterday was one of those days where you wake up a mess with your head in the clouds so of course I reached for my staples. Bad mornings happen to everyone and more than we want them to, so it is important to have a few pieces in your closet that make you feel fabulous despite your state of mind.

A lot of my staple pieces include¬†simple shift dresses and basics like the ones showcased in this post! Nothing is better than slipping on your favorite pair of jeans…it is as if you can conquer the world in a minute! When you are having a rough morning it is always better to go simple, because if your mind isn’t there you want to make sure that everything else is in check.

Neutral colors like white, black, denim, and nude are the best hues to work with when you have little time and little patience. They take no time to put together and always come out fabulous. Using a pop of color on your lips is the perfect way to make sure nobody actually knows that you had a rough morning. Let’s be real, if you go slightly above and beyond you’ll be doing better than most people on a normal day. This lip gloss was a brilliant BIRCHBOX find from LAQA & Co.

I know I’ve already raved about these Kate Spade sneakers but I can’t get enough of them lately! As the warm weather comes to an end it is the perfect way to ease back in to close-toed shoes. They are the happy medium between my Jack Rogers that make my toes way too cold these days and my Tory Burch flats that are a bit too harsh in these warm temperatures.

What staples are you grabbing lately?

    I always put together an outfit the night before because if I wake up late or I’m not completely with it when I wake up and I don’t have something planned I’ll just throw on a tee and whatever pair of jeans I can find. (And by tee I mean the musical t-shirts from the school that I work at, so not the most flattering!)

    Right now I have a pair of jeans that I’ve been reaching for probably more than I should, but they’re SO comfortable. It’s been hectic at work and I’m pretty tired, so I just want to be comfy. It’s either this pair of jeans or a maxi skirt if I’m not taking the bus.

    I love your jeans! I also always have to have my big sunglasses. My staple is usually a black t-shirt or tank and jeans, with some kind of comfy shoe. Even though you were in a rush, you look very well put together.
