Here is the thing about waking up early in the morning: I need to wake up an hour before I should because morning rush is not something that I can control. What is even worse? I am not, and will never be, a morning person.

Thus, early morning meetings are becoming extra challenging regardless of how early I slept the night before. Nevertheless, I got no choice but to pull myself out of the bed and just pick whatever decent clothes I have in my closet. So what is my I-am-late-and-have-no-time-to-think-about-what-to-wear remedy?

Trice Nagusara La Petite

First on the list: a straight skirt or pencil skirt. It is pretty amazing how this type of skirt makes any ensemble look appropriate when attending meetings just by matching it with a pair of heels even you are only wearing a plain white shirt as a top. However, because donning plain white shirts is in need of sporting extra accessories such as necklace, I wore a ruffle turtle neckline instead.

While for my outfit’s accent, I sported my gold gladiator high heels.

On the other hand, one thing to keep in mind when wearing and pairing a straight skirt or pencil skirt with a turtleneck top if you are petite is, to always match it with high heels or platform to add extra height. Also, only choose a skirt that falls around your knee. If you wanted to sport a mid-length skirt, just make sure that it is high-waist and only match it with a pair of high heels that does not cover much skin such as pumps and ankle strap heels to give illusion of longer legs.

Thus, by considering everything I mentioned above, putting up an outfit when you are running late is now easy peasy and will no longer cause any delays!
