I’d like to think of myself as your lazy girl BFF. How a lazy girl does a night-time beauty routine, lazy girl’s guide to getting dressed in under five minutes, lazy girl’s guide to packing a lunch in under 2 (I literally brought ramen noodles for my lunch today in the office. Suck it, by Chloe.) Think of me as the fellow gal-pal you never knew you had, the same one you’re embarrassed to tell your real friends about… I get you girl. 2 day old Thai food & the Bachelorette is the only way I’d spend a Monday. What else is there?
Being lazy is not necessarily the most appealing trait to have, and if it starts become an issue, then well, you’ve got yourself an issue. I’m talking about the “oh-that’s-today?” kind of ‘tude. Where you’re aimlessly wandering around these years of your life just questioning how people think you have your shit together kind of “lazy.” People always say to me, “You’re so busy! How do you handle so much?” Well, I don’t. I just told you, I ate 99 cent noodles for lunch today. We find ourselves in these hazy-dazes where we surprise ourselves that we didn’t leave the stove on. And in dire times like these, putting our pants on the right way isn’t even a concern. Summer is easily the hardest effin’ season to dress for. Do too much, you’re drowning in your own personal pool of sweat, do too little, you’re Karen from Mean Girls circa 2004 (it’s over 10 years old?!) Your safe bet? A loose-fitting romper. Adjusting the length to your occasion, it will feel like you’re barely wearing anything. All while looking like you spent actual, literal, clock-tickin’ time on putting together that outfit of yours. Here’s a really long, in-depth key filled with secret tips & tricks about how to choose a romper. You might want to take notes:
Shorter = More casual.
Longer = dressier and work appropriate.
See, how hard was that?
Here’s one of my favorites from an Australian brand I laaaav, Lioness. I’m trying to brighten up my wardrobe a smidge being that it is summer, and my poor mother nags me about wearing black all.the.time. So… nude will do. The pleats naturally give it a dressier feel, and the shortness (still adjusting… nun vibes over here) downplays the fancy-shmancy. Lastly, a pair of heels, to ya’ know, make it classier. We’re obviously on a roller coaster here, people.
