Six easy ways to look like you have your sh*t together


This is my most unprofessional work on the job. As a flower girl, I sat down on the ground and refused to take any more photos until someone fed me.

People like to hire people who seem to have their sh*t together. You know, the kind of people who look like they own a clothing steamer and eat quinoa regularly.

If that’s not you, here are some easy things you can do to pretend you’re not a mess:




1. Carry around a business book. You’ll look super invested in your professional development. I’m currently reading The Inner Lives of Marketswhich I originally only put in my Indigo cart to bump me to free shipping.






2. Say “I have to check my calendar”. This implies that you actually take time to organize your life. Who cares that the only event you’ve written down is “getting wine drunk with the girls”?



3. Wear a peacoat. Is it actually a warm winter option? Heck nah. Is it waterproof? Absolutely not. But for some reason it makes you look put together despite the fact you might experience hypothermia!


I had to find peacoat on H&M’s website because I don’t own one, but doesn’t she just look like she makes good choices?





4. Say the phrase “coffee chat” as much as possible.





5. Meal prep–or at least pretend you meal prep. Throw your Lean Cuisine into a Tupperware before you run out the door and act like you cooked it when you heat it up later. Or, just do like this guy:





6. Wear glasses. My mom says my glasses make me look like I *could be* smart.





I guess I wish I could wake up as a fully functioning adult who regularly irons her shirts. However, I’m a little relieved because every “adult” I’ve talked to claims they don’t really have a clue what they’re doing either. We’re all just faking it until we make it.

And that’s okay.

Comment something you do to seem like you’re put together!

    Lol I only wear my glasses when I’m running late and don’t put makeup on first thing in the morning. No one seems to notice the lack of makeup… all though my niece has put the two together and knows I woke up late when I’m wearing my glasses. 🤦🏼‍♀️

    Though I am a big supporter of the “fake it till you make it” lifestyle.
    Great post definitely brightened up my afternoon.

    This is brilliant! Making my own granola for breakfast and doing yoga in the morning is a guarantee of always making me feel 100% more organised.

    This post literally screams any college student. Different things I do to seem like I have myself together is: Make sure that my outfits are on point and my makeup is fleeky, open up my calendar on my phone every time someone asks me about my schedule, and definitely meal prepping. In terms of your tags, I think you did a great job. However I would suggest maybe tagging key words that you use in your post a lot such as “together”. Overall great job!
