If you’re not super-human, then you’ve probably experienced your fair share of what I call the morning scramble. Which is where no matter what you do, you can’t seem to pull it together. Where you can’t decide on the outfit you’re going to wear, and the shoes you’re going to pair with it, or can’t seem to find that new necklace you just baught to go with your outfit — and so on and so forth.
And if you experienced any of that, then luckily I have your back. Because I have a few quick tricks that you can easily add to your daily routine to ensure you’re never late because of a wardrobe indecision.
So let’s hop right into it!
Check the weather forecast to save on time
To avoid getting soaked in the rain or going out in a sweater when it’s 90 degrees — and then having to waste time changing your outfit; you should always check the weather forecast of what to wear or bring with you when you head out the door. Never ignore the weatherman, or the weather app on your phone, and always bring an umbrella if you know it’s going to rain. Also, make sure to plan out an outfit that will be comfortable and wearable for the temperature as well. It’s always better to play it safe rather than going back inside your house just to change, because you didn’t dress adequately for the weather.
Plan out your outfit the night before
And speaking of planning, make sure to lay out your outfit the night before. After you check the weather forecast, don’t forget to take out the clothes, shoes and accessories you’ll be wearing the next day, and set it on top of your drawer. The worst thing to happen when you’re rushing in the morning, is to spend minutes upon mintues just going through your closet, and pondering on what to wear. So do yourself a favor and set aside your clothes to cut down on time.
Use the shower as a steamer
Once you’re ready to get dressed, don’t forget to put your pre-laid out clothes on a hanger near the shower, to de-wrinkle any frumps on your garments. This way, you don’t have to worry about ironing your clothes when you get out the bathroom, but instead can just have them ironed from the hot steam from your shower. Which will save you at least 15-20 minutes!
Put your purse by the front door
If you’re a purse lover, it’s always annoying when you’re trying to find your go-to purse when you’re on a time crunch. So to make the situation a little less frustrating and stressful, I would suggest putting your purse by the front door if you know you’re about to head out. Because trying to scramble through your closet to find a specific bag, can waste so much time and energy. Another handy tip, is to keep little nick-nack emergencies in your purse for just in case reasons. So snack bars, hair ties, a pen, etc, should be in your purse all the time, just so if anything random happens, you got some back-up items you can count on.😉
And that’s all the quick tips today! I hope you guys now know some of the basic tricks you can do for whenever you’re in a rush to go to work, school, a meeting or wherever, to avoid feeling stressed. Let me know in the comments down below one of your worst fashion, morning scramble moments, and what you now do to avoid them.
