Me literally every morning:
5:45am - Ok I am going to snooze ONCE and then I will get up and look cute
6:00am - I guess it's a ponytail kind of day
6:15am - Who needs breakfast?
6:30am - Who needs a job?
If you are NOT a morning person, like moi, you live for a quick morning routine. When I am out of time and have to throw something together, I find I can never go wrong with a classic button up, high waisted jeans, and flats. Voila! Looks like I definitely woke up more than 10 minutes ago...

I love the contrast of sexy shear + buttoned up prep in this top. It’s classic but untraditional with the lack of collar and black trim. Plus this top is very thin, so it is easy to tuck in and go without worrying about getting untucked and unraveled on the move.
How did I get this fun Banana Republic blouse for free, you might ask? A happy combination of clearance discounts and the annual $15 birthday reward. I practically stole it (but not really)
I mentioned my love for BR jeans in my last post, and these are a recent pair that I just live in. They are stretchy (perfect for the holidays) but don’t bag, have a fun frayed detail on the ends, and are a great light color for a more casual look. Plus the waist is just high enough to hold in a shirt without looking like full blown mom jeans.
Thank you for visiting! Would love to hear your go to ensemble below in the comments!
