Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe that I finished my last week of classes of my sophomore year of college. It’s been a good semester, filled with lots of fun and of course hard-work. I want to capture one last stylish outfit for what to wear to class before finals begin this week because then I will be living in leggings and t-shirts.
For the most part, I like to look nice for my classes. Although, I am up early for my classes, I still get excited going through my closet and putting together outfits for the day. When I feel stylish, I feel more confident, and more motivated to take on my busy day. On sunny days with temps in the mid 60s, I enjoy wearing a pair of skinny jeans, a short-sleeved shirt, and of course my Converse sneakers. An outfit like this is casual and comfortable for class but not as basic as your typical sweatpants look.
I’m a huge fan of Madewell denim, so naturally I have been enjoying these new jeans from their spring collection. I can’t get enough of their skinny jeans they call the painter editors because of their artfully distressed design. A cool feature of these jeans is that the paint and smudge detailing is different on every pair. These unique jeans will have you looking and feeling great.
I don’t want to draw attention away from the beautiful paint splatter detailing, so I chose to wear a basic, grey short-sleeved shirt from Apricot Lane. I love the fit of the shirt because its nice flow and perfect length.
Of course, I decided to wear my black Converse sneakers. These sneakers have been through it all. Longs days of walking around campus, going to classes, strolling the streets of NYC, and even concerts. I’m surprised they haven’t fallen apart. Although, they are still in great condition, a new pair is on my wish-list. Black Converse are so versatile and they give any outfit a sporty, casual vibe.
In my opinion, the best way to make any outfit less boring is to add a silver statement necklace. My fringe inspired necklace from Forever 21 goes with any shirt and you’ll find the fringe trend is so popular for spring.
Obviously, before I walk out the door for a busy day of classes, I need a bag to carry my books and laptop. My Steve Madden book bag has been with me for the whole school year. It has two pockets, a large one for holding my books and a smaller pocket for other essentials like pens, pencils, hand sanitizer, and of course chewing gum.
Last but certainly not least, I have a delicious French vanilla coffee in hand and I am ready to conquer the day.
It’s been a great semester and now it is time for the real stress to begin. FINALS! Here’s to cup after cup of coffee, a few all-nighters, and a mind and body totally ready for the summer break.
