put together uniform

The ‘ish’

I’m an extremest in all aspects of my life. I’m ALL IN or I’M OUT, and that goes double for my appearance. #FullGlam #Homeless. Somewhere between bombshell and conductor of the hot mess express lies the ‘ish’, or as I like to call it FAF-ish (Fancy As F*** -ish). This technical term refers to those days when you appear put together but, your struggle is real. The nail polish is most certainly chipping, you desperately need to wash your hair, and you’re still wearing the mascara from the day before (or maybe that’s just me). This is the “ish”.

When you want to look cute (but can’t be bothered), focus on impactful details to rejuvenate your inner queen. This could be a bold lipstick, over-sized sunglasses, statement earrings, tailored jacket, or a go-to uniform. Here are my favorite uniforms in a flash.

UNIFORM #1 is athletic leggings, a hoodie (if you would rather die than wear pumps CANNOT be bothered with outfit #2) and white sneakers.

UNIFORM #2 is a pair of pumps, jeans that make your butt look good, a tucked in t-shirt, a belt and accessories.

Three Ways

The jump off pieces you’ll need for this three way look, are a white t-shirt, hoop earrings and a bandana. Paring the jump off’s with a variety of bottoms and shoes give you a wide range to play with on the Chill to Fancy sliding scale. The third look (not pictured) is the perfect solution if you need to look put together from the waist up but don’t have to go full on ‘outfit’…think curbside grocery pick-up or any drive through window scenario. All you need is a pair of joggers! No shoes, no problem.
