These days I wake up to the sound of birds chirping outside my window, followed by bustling engines of cars and trucks passing by. My mornings, like most, are different. My routine is slower, and I’m tuned in to all the little things. A few weeks ago, I needed help from a friend to run errands, and I had to move quickly. I popped into my closet only to find that I wore all my loungewear, and my laundry was overdue.
I reached for my silk leopard print skirt, a designer t-shirt, and a pair of chunky sneakers. I felt overdressed for the occasion, but this look was effortless, and it felt good to dress up and go.
From delicate stud earrings to classic slip-on loafers, here are this week’s best beauty and fashion gems to get you out-and-about, quickly and in the most stylish way possible.
Dresses are the most essential piece in anyone’s wardrobe. I suggest snagging a few, like this For Love & Lemons polka dots maxi dress. A one-piece look gives you the ease of building your outfit for the day.
Wanna upgrade your skincare game? GinZing, the ultra-lightweight, energy-boosting moisturizer from Origins, is your go-to cream for a fresh and dewy face. I love this product. The oil-free moisturizer packs 72-hours of hydration and leaves my skin with the perfect glow.
Make a statement or two with The West Village watch from Rosefield. This watch has a stunning, ultra-thin 7mm gold-plated case. The strap is adjustable and interchangeable with other bands within the Upper East Side, West Village, Tribeca, Gabby, and Boxy collection.
For the woman on the go, but who also hates sneakers, slip-on loafers are a lifesaver. Go for these polished Dolce Vita flats in black and be confident that you’ve got a no-fuss pair of shoes for almost every outfit.
A solid white button-down top is the perfect addition to an elegant outfit, as well as a laidback look with a pair of distressed jeans. This J. Crew top is inspired menswear, has a loosely fitted structure, and a soft ruffle at the neck and cuff. Match this top to your style mood of the day.
Frye’s Raffia cowboy hat is lightweight and breathable. Spend less time figuring out how to style your hair by adorning your head with this western-style hat.
Pack your essential items in a small bag and just go! Hunter’s bright pink fanny pack helps you stay organized with its multifunctional design. It can be worn as a crossbody or as a bumbag.
Constantly wearing a mask means no makeup. Or so I thought. Give your eyes the attention they deserve with Marc Jacobs Beauty’s At Lash’d lengthening and curling mascara.
The skinny jeans trend is slowly phasing out as many make way for straight cut jeans. Pair that white-button down top I talked about earlier with this metal-inspired aluminum hue, slim fit jeans from Rag & Bone.
Add these soft blush pink studs from Olive + Piper to your outfit. The stud earrings are hypoallergenic and can be worn for special moments and everyday style.
Take your nail polish “from ‘wet to set’ in 60 seconds” with OPI’s nail polish fast drying drops. The drops are enriched with jojoba and antioxidant Vitamin E to keep your cuticles healthy.
Equally as effortless as wearing a dress, a jumpsuit is your next go-to look for a simple yet well thought out wardrobe. Loft’s striped smocked jumpsuit hugs your waistline, has a breezy flair, and front slash pockets.
Move around as you please with Wilfred’s fun, pleated skirt. The relax-fitted skirt is made from a Japanese “recycled, softly structured fabric.”
