My time-saving tip when it comes to getting ready whether it’s in a hurry on that busy workday morning or if you are a little dusty from one heck of a night before is to go with what you know works. When you are short of time stuffing around deciding on a new outfit idea is a waste of time. Reach for the old favourites and get out the door before you know it.

Like on this windy Sunday morning {errr, yesterday} on a balcony on the Gold Coast. That’s exactly what I did. I reached into my overstuffed suitcase and pulled out my ankle boots, my stripe pencil skirt and my Afterglow tee. Simple, effective and a proven winner. A little chilly though. So I pulled on the floral bomber jacket I had just borrowed from Emma and I was done. An easy ponytail and some face on and I was prepared to face the day. If not a little wary of how it would turn out. It had been one heck a weekend so far. I was pretty darn exhausted.

For me the ankle boots work because they drop lower at the front. The pencil skirt works because I love it. The length of the t-shirt makes this outfit easy to wear and comfortable. The jacket worn open is casual and fun and the clashing print makes the whole thing more interesting that if you added a simple black bomber jacket or blazer. And all of it distracts from my tired eyes and second day hair. And that my friends is a win.
