We all have days when we need to get dressed in a jiffy and yet look polished and on days especially nothing worthwhile in terms of clothing comes to mind. On those days, just go basic with your outfit (like a simple dress) and add a bold/bright accessory.
What I’m trying to say is that sometimes all it takes is a bright bag and a bright lipstick (in addition to your basic outfit) to make you look ‘put-together’. Like here, in this photo where I have just worn a simple printed sundress, added a brown belt to give it some definition, and pulled together the entire look by just carrying a bright cherry bag and sporting red lips.
To be honest, I also wore like a really gorgeous pair of sandals (IMO). But had I worn even a pair of basic brown sandals, the outfit would have looked equally good (if not better).
Dress: So old I don’t even remember where it’s from
Lipstick: Maybelline lip-stain
PS: I had worn this outfit back in June!
