What I'm Wearing: Snooze Button (and ways to look your best when you oversleep)

Blazer: Thrifted from Value World (thanks, Mom), Ruffle Blouse: Gift (thanks again, Mom), Skirt: New York & Co. (several years old) Shoes: Clothes Mentor, Pearl Necklace (used as a belt): Hancock Fabrics, Watch: Wild Iris, Earrings: Vintage Purse: Ooh La La 

For the second consecutive day, I've overslept. I must have hit the snooze button five times this morning. I think most people have a morning like this every now and again, or at least are pressed for time in their morning routine. Here are some quick tips for making sure you never look disheveled even when you have 10 minutes to get out the door.

1. Reach for pieces you know work on your body

We all have our favorite pair of jeans, favorite skirt, dress, etc. Make your life less stressful on crazy mornings by not over-thinking your outfit, just stick with what you know works.

2. Plan your outfit the night before  

I really need to take my own advice on this one.  Check the weather, plan accordingly. This time of year I tend to layer a lot because it seems like the weather can be very warm one minute and quite chilly the next. So think about starting with a short sleeve shirt and adding a cardigan or blazer, this will give you versatility.

3. Pair up a few pieces in your closet 

 I actually do this myself. I hang a blouse with a jacket or blazer so I can quickly grab it and pair it with jeans or a neutral skirt. This will make you have less of a freakout when you are in a hurry.

4. Invest in some solid basics

Basics are the foundation of many outfits. You can dress them up or make them more casual - they are good for almost every occasion. Think about buying shirts, skirts, dresses and pants in neutral colors. Colors I would recommend are: Black, Brown, Camel, Gray, Olive Green and Red (yes, red!). You can throw nearly every combination of these colors together and look totally chic.

5. Kill the bed head

I typically wash my hair every other day and quite honestly sometimes I wake up and it looks like someone ran me over. What to do? Well if your hair is longer like mine - I would suggest a low, messy bun. It's a classic - but wearing it low and a bit undone makes it more modern and hides the fact that it looks like crows nested on your head. If your hair is shorter - twist back the front piece and pin it - this always seems to look cute, no matter how messy the hair.

Do you have any tips for looking your best when you have a small amount of time?

I would love to hear them. I am the queen of the snooze button.
