Quick Snap: Vol. I

victoria mcginley studio - quick snap daily

I’ve been thinking about fun, simple ways I can share little bits of my life behind the scenes, and decided it would be cool to share occasional still life-type snapshots of my life at home. Working from home has forced me to develop certain routines, schedules and life hacks that are indispensable to me. My morning routine and bathroom counter seemed like a good place to start, mostly because I just spring cleaned and organized everything this past weekend (ha!). So here it is, my first Quick Snap.

      AGREED! I also laughed out loud at the “You’ll be lucky to get mascara on, you’re so late,” line because that’s basically my morning. I have basically set my alarm now 20 minutes earlier, and an alarm called “GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE HOUSE” for 15 minutes before I need to leave because I’ve gotten to the point now where 1) I am vain as hell with the spackling that it’s out of hand and you’d think I was painting the side of my house, not my face, and 2) I am pokey as shit about the spackling that it’s making me leave later and later. Thankfully traffic on that highway is mostly cooperative!

      I also use an old jewelry dish for perfume samples, except I just never use them. I have a few of them I really like, but i just never use it. It’s pathetic!

      Neutrals, neutrals, neutrals! Without even realizing it, I basically built up a mix of separates that all go with one another. The key, I’ve found, is definitely dark pants (black or dark gray denim, black skinny pants that are comfortable) mixed with simple classics (silk tops, button up blouses, linen tops, dressier tees that make you look and feel great, etc). Everything can mix and match, and based on outerwear and shoes, you can dress any look up or down (flats and a cardigan or field style jacket for casual; heeled boots/heels with a blazer or structured jacket for something dressier). Boom, done!
