Have you ever made plans to go somewhere and then don’t feel like it later? 🙈 You can’t cancel because it’s too late anddddd you also can’t show up looking like a bum. What’s a girl to do?!
Today, I’m sharing some of my quick tips to looking put together and polished… even when you don’t feel like it!

1. Keep the hair simple with protective hairstyles & 15 minute do’s
I love protective hairstyles such as passion twist because it’s literally a get up and go hairstyle which is super convenient on those days I want to be cute without touching my hair.
I also have a video on my 2 simple 15 minute hairstyles! You can watch that video here:
2. Keep the face and makeup easy
My simple makeup routine includes 4 things: Brow pomade for brows, Mascara for lashes, Concealer for dark circles and a lip product to add some color to my face.
If I’m going to be photographed a lot, I’ll go ahead and add lashes and liner. It doesn’t take me over 5 minutes to do these two (practice def makes perfect because in college, it easily took me foreverrrrrr to apply a strip of lashes to ONE eye! lol)
3. Dresses and jumpsuits are a great go-to
Who needs a shirt, pants and possibly a belt when you can simply throw on a dress or jumpsuit and be done with it?!
Add a jacket to make it chic or chic casual
I love adding a blazer to a dress to make it look professional and polished or a denim jacket to a romper to make it casual! You can literally wear a blazer with your dress for work and then switch it up to a denim jacket after hours to make it everyday wear!
Invest in pieces that go with everything
I believe you should have at least 3 pair of shoes that will ultimately match anything: Black, tan and
When it comes to earrings, pearls and diamond studs also match pretty much everything. Keep it simple, sista.
I also recommend investing in some comfy heels like block heels and a few pair of flats.
Here are my tips to looking like a snack when you would much prefer be at home with snacks instead!
