Get A Simple, Stylish Look In Less Than 30 Minutes


Simple yet stylish in less than 30 minutes!  That, to me, is the perfect look for a lunch date with a friend, but in this case with my cousin :)   We met at Egg Harbor in Downers Grove (yes, those are snowflakes on me and yes, it was cold).  Egg Harbor is a casual restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch and tons of gluten free options.  Love this place, however the only thing missing is wine.  Wine is good.  Moms like wine.  All women like wine.  We want wine, Egg Harbor!  For now, I will settle on the coffee- at least there's coffee.

Back to the outfit.  Are you still sporting the yoga pants?  Or has it morphed into workout leggings?  Time to ditch them, girl!  I know, as a busy mom myself, it's so easy to depend on them but...there is another simple and fast way to look great without relying on the tiring, sporty look <insert eye roll>.

Here's how...

1)  Skip washing your hair and apply a dry shampoo.  Style as usual or put it up in a cute bun.  Taking a body shower is optional, but it is nice to feel clean, right?  But hey, no judging here!  It can totally be a wipes, baby powder and perfume day.

2)  Make-up.  I went all out make-up but the basics should be foundation, mascara, lips.  Or if you have freakishly, awesome eyelashes like my daughter, you can skip the mascara and substitute with a neutral eyeshadow.

3)  Simple cotton shirt.  White, black, blue... any color will work.

4)  Jeans.  Your favorite pair.  The ones that make you look and feel great!

5)  Scarf to pull it all together.  Without it, the outfit will be sub-par. 

And there it is!  Done and done.  In less than 30 minutes, you will look fab without trying too hard.  So save the yoga pants for yoga and the leggings for your kick boxing class.
