There’s nothing worse than the overwhelming feeling you get Monday morning when you realize what a packed week you have. For myself, those kinds of Monday mornings have occurred more often than I’d like to admit. Between juggling job schedules, classes, projects, homework and whatever shreds of a social left that is left, the life of a college student can be difficult. Even though we can’t clone ourselves to get it all done, we can simplify how we dress and remain stylish, comfortable and ready to conquer the Monday blues.

This Fashionista proves that you can still look polished despite the morning rush and move past the temptation to wear yoga pants and a sweatshirt. By wearing a basic black, silk T-shirt, dark wash jeans, and brown heeled booties she keeps things simple. To add a personal touch to the outfit, she accessorized with a watch. The look is completed with a slicked back ponytail.

Creating this look is not only simple, but it’s also easy to personalize. When you’re in a rush, there really isn’t time to put deep thought into an outfit, but that doesn’t mean that you have to look like a walking disaster. What I like most about this is how easy it is to mix up. You don’t have to wear a solid colored T-shirt as this Fashionista did. A cute polka-dot or striped pattern T-shirt can be paired with plain jeans and booties just as well. I love the silk T-shirts that J.Crew carries. Or, if you would rather stick with the solid T-shirt, you can mix the look up a bit with a pair of brightly colored jeans topped off by booties. Forever 21 offers a range of jeans for whatever look you’re going for, and Urban Outfitters carries booties that complement any outfit.

Looking good in the midst of a chaotic week doesn’t have to induce anxiety. The mix and match options of this outfit are endless, and if you remember to just keep things simple as this Fashionista did, then you will always look polished and put together regardless of how packed your schedule is.
