This outfit is a classic example of something I'd wear on a day when I'm running late in the morning and don't have time to think too much about the outfit I'm wearing! While in college, my go-to running late outfit was something along the lines of sweatshirt and yoga pants but since I've started a full-time job I know that no one at work is going to appreciate the baggy workout look so I throw on this simple combo instead: sweater + scarf + skinny jeans.

This combination looks so much more put together even though it's just as easy to throw on as a sweatshirt and yoga pants combo. I have a couple of sweater + scarf colors that I already know go very well together so having those ready In the back of my mind saves a ton of time in the mornings!

For scarves like this spotted animal print one, I try to keep the sweater simple in order to let the scarf really be the focus of the outfit without too many competing patterns. I like to center my outfits around a specific theme so I decided to throw on these Sperry topsiders because they have a touch of animal print on the sides! I love having a theme to every outfit I plan because it not only helps make planning the outfit easier, it also makes the outfit appear more continuous since all of the pieces tie together more thoroughly.

What is your go-to running late outfit? I'd love to hear your ideas since I'm always up for an outfit that lets me sleep in an extra half hour (:
