Alleluia! Finals are over! Yesterday I handed in my last final and officially completed my first semester of junior year. Like always, the semester flew. I can’t believe I only have three more semesters until graduation. Such a scary thought. My fall semester was very fun until you come back from Thanksgiving break and you realize you have three seven page papers due and two finals to take the following week. Luckily, I did survive and manage to complete all my assignments on time but I could not have done it without coffee and my Out of Print clothing.
Since I spent most of my mornings, afternoons, and nights studying and writing essays, I kept my outfits simple and comfortable. I didn’t want to completely abandon my love of looking stylish, but I didn’t always have time to plan outfits, so I stuck with the basics, like leggings, a sweatshirt, a vest, and slip on sneakers.
Starting from the bottom with my new favorite shoes. My shoes summed up my mood during finals week. I was so over the early mornings writing essays and long nights studying. I love these unique and sassy shoes from Circus by Sam Edelman. Even better, I scored a great deal on these designer shoes on Black Friday.
For my pants, I am just wearing basic black leggings from Cotton On. Nothing to interesting, but I could not live without leggings.
No surprise here, but again I am wearing my Old Navy black puffer vest. Since it has been a very warm December (I am not complaining) all I need is my fleece-lined vest to keep warm on the long walk to the library or campus coffee shop.
Next, the main piece of my outfit is my sweatshirt from Out of Print. Out of Print offers a variety of products, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, pouches, mugs, and so on. Best part is that when you buy one of their products, the company donates a book to a community in need and also supports authors, publishers, and artists to continue to be inspired and showcase their talent. My Out of Print Library Stamp Sweatshirt is super soft and features a vintage library stamp-inspired pattern. So unique! It is perfect for finals week because the sweatshirt is so comfortable and the pattern speaks to me, considering I spent many days and nights at the library.
For accessories, my tote bag brings back some childhood memories. I loved reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Such a classic! Of course, I am in love with my Out of Print tote bag that features the cover of my favorite childhood book. In my tote you can find my laptop and all my notebooks and textbooks needed to ace my finals. Also tucked in my tote bag is my pencil pouch which also came from Out of Print. My Composition Notebook Pouch holds all my pens and highlighters, and perfectly matches the book theme.
Now that finals are over, I look forward to the holidays, relaxing at home, and posting more and more on the blog. Let the blogger brainstorm session begin, which means if you have any ideas let me know in the comments below. Talk to you all soon!
