Get Ready Quick Tip #8734

October 18, 2017

I am the worrrsssst on going to bed early — I’m always struggling to wake up in the morning and I love me snooze button. But you know the danger of frequently snoozing, is that more times than often you snooze for way longer than you’re supposed to. I can’t tell you how many times I end up having to scramble getting ready in the morning because I woke up late. Because of this, I am pretty much of the master of putting an outfit together in a flash.

Here’s a pro-tip for getting an outfit together in 5-min or less. Start with a base of all black: for this outfit I chose the a simple black tank and accordion pleated pants. Then, simply top it off with a layering item of another color. This can be an oversized tee, blazer, or a bomber jacket — anything you have handy in your closet, really. I bet you that you don’t even need to shop for extra items to pull together this look.

But just in case you want to add more layering pieces to your closet, I’ve selected some of my favorite pieces from West Kei on this blog as well. Read on to see the full look and my favorite pieces.

    Such a good tip to go with all black and then add a color, texture, or print! The snooze button is pretty much my best friend so I need to keep that in mind haha.

    I am exactly the same way, I can never get to bed and I snooze like 5 times, no joke!

    Ah yes all black was my go to for years starting in junior high as wearing all the black all the time is an easy way to look put together when you don’t have a lot clothes I did’t grow up with money so discovered this early on. Loving this look, I have an embroidered blazer from Clover Canyon that I could wear with all black, thanks for the inspiration!
