Sometimes you just don’t feel like spending time and effort getting dolled up for a quick trip to anywhere. I love rolling out of bed and going straight to brunch — but nobody else should have to suffer from the sight of my bedhead. Am I right?
My goal is often to be out the door in five minutes, without looking like a hot mess. So here are the three keys for achieving maximum cuteness with minimal effort…
Rather than rocking sweats, I go for cuffed boyfriend jeans or leggings. I’ll ditch the hoodie or faded tee (I likely slept in) for a soft button down. Uggs are so comfortable but they’re a dead giveaway for laziness, so instead I’ll slip on ballet flats or moto boots.
If your locks resemble a bird’s nest, you can twist it into a chic topknot or messy bun. I’m a big fan of the little braid (see my how-to for short hair) or an easy half-up do. Then of course there’s always hiding under a cute hat.
I’m not actually suggesting you put make-up on, because that defeats the purpose. But, if you have 30 seconds to spare, a little lip gloss and a swipe of mascara go a long way.
And don’t forget — the most important thing is your smile!
