How to look presentable in 5 minutes

{image via}

So you accidentally slept late and now you have no time to get ready. Sometimes the morning is tough. The put-in-your-contacts-at-a-red-light kind of tough. The kind of tough that requires a quick, easy fix so you can trick people into thinking you have all of your business together.

Sometimes those mornings happen. When they do, you can be prepared with a few easy tricks.

Keep accessories simple. Today is clearly not the day for a put-together outfit and a statement necklace. So ditch the gaudy jewelry for something more subtle, or stack a couple of necklaces or bracelets and call it a day. The Cota hand-stamped initial necklace is the perfect accessory for any quick outfit. 

Rock a ponytail and earrings. Bright lipstick, a ponytail, and a pair of earrings does wonders in about ten seconds. Brush back your maybe-dirty hair, put on some red (or coral - it's summer after all!) lipstick, and you have yourself a look. Pick a dangly accessory like our vintage brass Arrow earrings for a quick 60-second fix. 

Don't get complicated. Sundresses make you look like you tried really hard without having to try at all. A sundress is easier to put on than a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, and looks about a hundred times better. The same goes for button-downs -- pair your favorite white button-down with a pair of jeans and you're practically Eizabeth Taylor before you even walk out the door. 

Dry shampoo and a one minute blow-dry. If you have somewhere nice to be but you only have five minutes to get ready, try dry shampoo and a blow dry. Flip your head over and blow cool air onto your hair for one minute - this creates air pockets in your tresses instantly and adds serious volume. Add dry shampoo or baby powder to the crown of your hair to cut the oil and you are good to go. 

You don't always have to look like you have it together. Some days you show up to Target in leggings and a t-shirt and try to avoid eye contact with strangers while you shop for a new Brita filter. But on those days when you're seriously crunched for time and want to look presentable, it's best to be prepared with some tricks up your sleeve.

What's your favorite one-minute beauty trick?
