Choosing your morning outfit can be difficult task on a good day, let alone a morning when you have little time and zero creativity. For these time-sensitive and sleep deprived days, I like to have a set of outfits that are my go-to's.
When feeling the time crunch, my favourite outfit is the blouse and skirt combo. This outfit works perfect for whatever comes ahead during the day: a meeting with clients, errands after a hard day at the office, or a hot date night with your man are all do-able with a cute blouse and skirt.
A few examples of how to wear each type of skirt:
The mini skirt: The blouse is a perfect pairing with the mini skirt. The modest cut of the blouse lets you show off one body part. And of course I love a mix of colours to take the skirt into summer.
The maxi skirt: Adding a flowy neutral blouse to a bright maxi skirt is a great way to wear this trend to the office. The skirt is loud but the blouse plays it down into work appropriate. You may feel a bit too covered up with a long sleeve blouse and the ankle length skirt so just look for one with slits to show a little leg. Keep this skirt summer appropriate by pairing it with a sleeveless silk blouse and strappy sandals.
The bandage skirt: This ultimate body hugging sexy skirt is the perfect piece to have in your wardrobe for that last minute date night. Pair this skirt with a loose oversized silk blouse to balance out the proportions and a pair of killer heels.

You should be able to mix and match any skirt and blouse in your closet; try experimenting, and I'll bet you discover a new favourite outfit from clothes you already own!
