i woke up like this | a uniform

You know how, some days, you just wake up late, and nothing is going right, but you have a go-to outfit that makes it all okay?

This has been, without a doubt, my I Woke Up Like This uniform this summer. In fact, I love it so much that I wore almost the same outfit on my birthday. LBD + circle scarf + flashy flats = glorified PJs that look slammin'. I consistently get so many compliments on this outfit equation, which makes me feel like I cheated because it's really so easy! I love that I can make completely different looks just by changing up the scarf.

Here are a few scarves I'd love to rock with a LBD. I love how different they all are!

Is this a look you've tried before? What's your go-to uniform for late-wake up days?

PS. I'm featured over on Clear the Way today in Kate's One Word Inspiration series! Go see what I wrote about the word ending, and show her blog some love!

  1. At least your go-to outfit is a dress because mine is a college t-shirt and basketball shorts. *hides blogger face and walks away.*

  2. yes! this is one of my favorite things to do and definitely one of my favorite outfits you've posted! I love the fun colors and the simple but flattering dress. It's the perfect pick me up. (plus your hair is super cute!)

  3. This is the cutest go-to-outfit ever! You look so great! I have a few go-to's on rotation that kind of change seasonally. Thank god for the outfits you KNOW look good every time!

  4. This is cute! I love dresses like this because you can literally wear them with anything. So easy and cute, every time!
    Also, you won me over with your Beyoncé reference in the title. I love all of these scarves you linked to, especially #6.

  5. The tassels on that scarf are the best little detail. I love them. My uniform this summer has been shirt dress... tons of shirt dresses. It's just been too hot!

  6. Really cute! My go-to right now is a pair of green lace H&M shorts + any bright tee + a vintage statement necklace + my gold sandals. I don't know why, but it's great. And I found all of these fantastic vintage shell statement necklaces at the Salvation Army. Score. :) Looove the fox scarf! XO- Alexandra

  7. The scarf is cute but that LBD is really, really flattering on you!

  8. So cute! When I can't think of anything to wear (like today), I throw on a black dress and a cardigan as well!

  9. Yes! You look fab! And this is my "summer uniform" as well lol


  10. I just found your blog and I love it. Adorable outfit and a great blog!

  11. love this uniform. All those scarves are super cute! I've been pairing my high waisted black pants with a basic top when I'm in a rush. I'm sooo ready for fall fashion.

  12. It's important to have a go-to outfit for those rush mornings! I love the scarves with tassels.

  13. This outfit is amazing! I love your style! It's so laid back and amazing! Thanks for stopping by our link up!


  14. You are utterly adorable, as usual, Nicole! I LOVE this outfit, and it definitely reminds me of something I'd wear on a late-wake up day. Throw on a simple dress or tee with jeans, add a cardigan, and accessorize with a scarf and some fun flats! Perfect!!

  15. This is such a great equation! A dress, statement necklace or earrings, and flats has definitely been my go-to equation lately. I used to wear pumps because I always felt more confident and put-together in heels, but I need to shop for some new ones and I haven't quite made the transition back now that I have a job that puts me on my feet a lot. I love these scarf choices! Also, really jelly of how cute you look with your hair up. I always feel like I look terrible with my hair up, probably because I have a small face. Oh well.
