My mornings usually consist of me hitting snooze until I have just enough time to throw on a pair of leggings and add some dry shampoo to my hair. Then I run out the door to make it to Starbucks in time to beat the morning rush.
While sometimes it is easier to just wear leggings and my favorite Nikes, I love looking put together for class too. Especially on days I have meetings or plans to meet someone for lunch, dressing nice makes me feel confident and powerful. A loose fitting dress and some type of jacket is my uniform for these kind of days.
For this outfit, I paired my casual gray dress with a denim utility jacket from Forever 21. This jacket is light enough that I can still wear it outside in the Florida heat. I threw on my favorite pair of flats for comfort and style. The ankle strap and pointed toe add a classy element to this look. I completed this campus chic look with an oversize Steve Madden bag. I love this bag because it has a detachable crossbody strap and it is big enough to fit my laptop and all of my other belongings inside.
For my makeup look, I used my go-to foundation, the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup, because it has amazing coverage and it really does stay in place all day long. I added the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer under my eyes and set it with the RCMA Makeup No Color Powder. The combination of these three products leaves my face looking flawless all day long.
The Nyx Cosmetics Highlight & Contour Pro Palette is a staple item in my makeup routine because it is so versatile. I used this palette for my contour, eyeshadow, and inner-corner highlight. Finally, I am wearing the Dior Blush in the shade “Mimi Bronze” and the Nyx Cosmetics Butter Gloss in the shade “Fortune Cookie.”
For my hair, I always start off with the Batiste Dry Shampoo to freshen up my hair and add volume. Then, I use a curling wand to achieve some loose waves and I’m good to go.
