You probably know that feeling where you have to leave the house with your baby and you’re covered in spit-up, plus the circles under your eyes are in danger of causing a solar eclipse.
And while I’m no fashion guru, I do like to leave the house looking presentable.
Here are my five favorite tricks for looking (more) put together in ten seconds or less:
#1: A great pair of shoes
A plain pair of jeans and a t shirt look great with fun shoes. I like ones with a low heel or wedge that are easy to walk in by make me look a little taller (I’m pretty short).
#2: A Big Necklace
A necklace makes you look more put together and directs attention away from spit-up on your shoulder or a wrinkly shirt. I love this one because it’s basically indestructible – anything dainty is sure to get destroyed quickly by grabby baby hands!
I love lipstick because it calls attention away from my tired eyes and makes me look like I put more effort into getting ready than I actually did (bonus, easy to put on in the car!)
#4: A Hat
Hats are super trendy right now, plus they are a great way to cover up unwashed (or unbrushed!) hair.
#5: Add a Belt
I’ve just recently discovered belts (I’m really cutting edge here. . . ), and they just add a quick bit of polish to an outfit. Tuck in the front of your shirt and voila!
