It’s September-the time when the buzzing of the alarm clock comes altogether too early. You roll out of bed, grab some coffee, brush your teeth. The kids might be old enough to dress themselves, but one of them has lost their shoe, and the other is sitting on the floor half-dressed.
It’s likely that you might go into full mom-mode, and throw on some sweats and a hat just to make it out the door.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way; you can still look presentable even when you’re in a crush for time!
Here are a few easy ways to stay cute when facing the morning rush:
1. Get prepped the night before.
Getting ready for the day is so much easier when you don’t have to think about it. Do all your planning the night before, and you’ll save yourself a headache in the morning. We can get all dressed in two minutes once we’ve picked out the clothes, right?
If you’re just dropping the kids off at school, there’s no need to get all gussied up. You can look well-dressed in a simple button-up with jeans like this:
Throw it in a cute bun, or leave it down- you don’t have to cover up your lovely mane if you’re in a rush! You can save time by washing and drying your hair before bedtime.
3. Keep the makeup simple. Some girls do a full-face every morning, and some don’t wear makeup at all. Whether you want to do more or less, you can look fresh-faced and ready for the day in five minutes or less.
4. Start the day with prayer.
Even if you don’t have time for devotions, you can still pray before your day starts! God doesn’t place time limits on prayer. You can lift up a prayer to Him before your feet hit the floor, while you shower, or even as you put your makeup on!
Each morning we start with prayer and relying on God will go so much better than the one we try to manage on our own. We have a Father who cares for us and brings us peace in the midst of the most chaotic morning!
And even more, a woman who loves Jesus has more beauty than any clothing or makeup could ever provide: Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
