I'm not used to getting up before 8am, so this morning took me by surprise. Really, it was just another case of the running late's. The husband was on my back, "Kate, are you ready? Kate, you have ten minutes." At that point, I was just brushing my teeth. I had to make a decision: use my last few minutes to do my makeup, or put together my jewelry? 

Dress & Cardigan: The Limited
Belt: Target
Shoes: Christian Siriano c/o Payless

In the fight between makeup and jewelry, makeup won. I knew I should have picked out my jewelry the night before, but I banked on being able to pick them out in a jiffy this morning. (I also couldn't figure out last night what sort of jewelry to wear with this outfit.) What kind of sacrifices do you make when you are running late? Any tips for getting everything done when you're in a hurry?


  1. I have a little bowl by more door where I keep a couple of statement rings a charm bracelet and a watch. If I'm running late I grab something on the way out the door.
    Oh, and I have a small bag with a change of shoes and some accessories in my trunk.

  2. First off: I decided to take your question/request about seasonal shoes and run with it! http://www.embellishconsignment.com/blog/whats-in-a-shoe-part-1-peep-toes-in-winter-boots-in-summer/ This is the first of 2 parts. Thanks so much for the visit and comment!!

    Second off: I too have a bowl...on my dresser (in my closet) It contains only simple silver costume jewelry. (If you prefer gold, go for that) When you are in a rush, just grab the silver bracelets, a pair of earrings and a necklace...It doesn't even matter what they look like, because I only put things in the bowl that coordinate. For me, silver dresses up anything, and if I'm in a rush, I always feel frumpy or dishevled (no matter what I have on). The silver makes me feel 10 times better about my choice and the fact that I'm literally running out the door! Her's a look at my must haves for the closet! http://www.embellishconsignment.com/blog/2012/04/
