how to conquer finals fashionably

To all my college students, it’s that dreaded time of year…FINALS! It is that week you fear all semester, but no worries we will conquer these finals and enjoy the holiday season.

I love positive reinforcements and I believe seeing those messages help keep my mood great. My three essentials to conquer the finals are:

  • Coffee (hot chocolate for me) in your cutest mug to remind you how great you are!
  • Study, Study, Study! Nordstrom Rack has an adorable collection of notebooks with positive quotes and cute sketches.
  • Stay comfy! It’s time to bring out those comfortable Victoria’s secret sweats and your fab slippers. I just picked up these glitter slippers from Nordstrom Rack.

Well September brings school back into my life. With so much more time invested in work, I will definitely have to stay focused on school to stay on track. I’m always to start a new school year with more knowledge.

Today was the second day of classes and I’m really to keep up some cute, yet easy looks since I have a full day of classes. I found this mustard colored skirt by Free People at my job a few weeks ago.

This type of draped skirt is really in trend and I’ve seen on it Instagram on bloggers and “Instagram famous” people. Is that really a thing? Yeah, I guess it is. Ugh.

I always have the problem┬á of having really cute bottoms, but I always lack in the tops to go with the look. I kept the look fairly simple with a white tank and white boyfriend sweater over it. I would’ve preferred if the cardigan wasn’t as long, but it’s all I had.

I added my favorite wedges to add more sensual effect to the look. How’d I do?

when Rick Ross said that line, i’m pretty ┬ásure he was talking to me! actually i just thought that was a clever title next to the ART SIGN.┬áDSC_0171 DSC_0148

This awesome ART sign is in front of the Art building at College of the Desert. The college I currently attend! The art building is one of my favorite structures, because it is so sleek and simple. as I was parking for class, I just knew I had to snap a picture there today.

the spring semester is almost over…one more week! I have finals on Tuesday and i’m so happy! this semester I took Intro to Mass Media, Psychology, & History of Film Music. Today I presented my final project for Mass Media, which was on How Social Media changed the Fashion Industry… yes, everything is fashion related! it went very well and if I can i’ll put my power point up on the blog. my presentation turned into a whole discussion on the trapped fashionista… so hey classmates! ­čÖé DSC_0199 DSC_0151 DSC_0196 DSC_0189 DSC_0190

the sunglasses I bought on a recently bought on a recent trip to the Montclaire Nordstrom store. It was the last pair and I am completely obsessed with them. I think I have been wearing them at least twice a week. (say hey to my sister brandy’s reflection)
