My Go-To Outfit… When I’m Pressed For Time

go to outfit | by the skinny confidential

When life gets busy, I’m all about little tricks that save TIME & EFFORT.

Seriously, anything to make life easier.

One being, I try to keep my house organized so there’s never time wasted searching for keys. They’re in the gold bowl! ALWAYS.

Another trick: I make myself snacks that can be stored in the refrigerator or pantry. That way when work is crazy swamped, I don’t get grumpy because of hunger— Michael hates when I’m HANGRY. LOL.

The final trick: my STAPLE outfit. You know, those items in your closet that you can throw together in five seconds that LOOK like you actually put in some effort?

GO-TO Outfit Whenever I’m Pressed For TIME:

Start with an easy graphic tee:

I’m wearing these a lot lately. You can find them anywhere for super cheap. Vintage shopping, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, pretty much every store has a few good graphic tees. I recently wore a graphic tee for this interview with Video Influencers.

Layer on dainty gold jewelry:

I tend to opt for dainty, minimalistic, with a unique & edgy twist lately. It adds a little something, without totally taking over the outfit. In other words, you’ll look like you TRIED, but not TOO HARD, you know?

Add some sexy flare pants:

Jeans, black or blue, even white or prints ( sometimes ) are great. I’m a real fan of flares lately. They’re just so easy & here’s a little secret: you have a lot more shoe options when you’re wearing flares. So many shoe styles simply just WORK with flares.

Top with cool sunnies:

A couple pairs of oversized, dark sunglasses are always a go-to too. This pair is great, but there are TONS of them out there.

Finish with white pumps:

You guys know I’m  ALL about the white pumps ( shoes ). Always have been, always will be. They’re just so bougie in the best way possible. They add a little spicy to this look.

Ok, now YOU: what’s your go-to outfit when you’re pressed for time?


  1. Hi lauryn,

    mine is a workout tanks or tee, they are quick, light, and sometimes you dont even need to iron them lol. i wear them with yoga pants, nothing more comfy!!
    and i agree on the dainty gold jewelry and the pumps. it really does the trick, look like you have put all the effort!

    although i love the idea of the stored snacks. i always end up not eating at all because of having no time to prepare a meal or a snack to throw in my mouth on the go.

    i like this post. xo

    1. Hi Alma!

      I’m so glad you like the idea of stored snacks. Literally such a game changing time saver! If you tend to eat them all, opt for hardboiled eggs because it’s so hard to more than two honestly!

      Workout clothes are one of my go-to’s as well! SO COMFY!

      Thanks for reading

  2. I am obsessed with the Portofino shirts at Express because they are super comfy, always flattering, & come in so many great colors. I do a skinny jean with one of the Portofino shirts, boots or Tory flats & a high pony & run out the door!

  3. Love this effortless look Lauryn!

    If you love dainty jewelry as much as we do, check out our site!

  4. I love this kind of looks! My go-to style is a white top/shirt/tee with a cute statement necklace, black skinny jeans and ballerina flats. With weel-cut pieces it never gets wrong!

    1. Hi Anne, love that look! What’s your favorite style of statement necklace? Do you like long and dainty or high neck & chunky? Or neither? Or both! LOL!! xx

    1. Hi Kerri, yes they’re SO easy. And honestly if you’re going to be working or doing something where they don’t get dirty they’re not too hard to keep clean. Just avoid clubbing them LOL! xx
