Finally Finals

I'm starting to think there's this unappreciated beauty to finals week. Hear me out. Yes, the tests suck big time and it can get ridiculously stressful, but I actually feel like I have more free time this week. I don't have three classes a day, I don't have homework, and most importantly, I'm not putting out a newspaper this week. Maybe I'm just saying this because I don't have any finals today. Maybe I'm just crazy, who knows? All I know is that I've had more time to catch up on blogs this week than normal so I'm happy.

I didn't get to take pictures the past couple of days, mostly because it was freezing. Luckily, today hit 40 degrees so I was safe to be without a coat for a few minutes to take these after getting lunch with some friends. I'll be back in California this Sunday for an entire month, which means better weather and hopefully more time to take photos. It's crazy how fast this year is going by, isn't it? 

Dress: Forever 21

  1. Haha I remember when I was in school I found finals week strangely satisfying. Once all that suffering was over and you submitted your final, you could officially close the book on a class. I liked the finality of it. And I liked how you only had to be in school two hours tops per day too ;) I like how you've got a bit of color popping out from your boots, cute detail :)

  2. Haha, love your positive thinking. But it's true... you have more free time for things like eating and procrastinating. :)

    You look so cute in that dress! Good luck with the rest of your finals!

  3. This dress is SO pretty! I always love a good Forever 21 find. Some days I find myself missing college, but I for one do not miss finals week. I'm glad yours isn't too crazy stressful, though!

  4. So lovely! I am obsessed with the combo going on here. Finals are hell but at the same time not so I do agree and I don't think you are too crazy. Good luck with finishing up the semester.
    Much love,

  5. haha I totally know what you mean by more time :) although part of me knows that this "more time" is an illusion because I really should be studying instead of flying around the blogosphere. *sighhh*

    but I must say, I am glad I stopped here to take a better look at your pretty dress! I want to steal it :) you look darling!


  6. I'm really liking this neutrals look you are rocking!

  7. Seriously, this year has flown by! I can't believe I'm almost done with my first semester of college :0
    Ha, and maybe after finals are over I can agree with you...I'm stressing big time for this math final I have. Ugh, worst subject ever >_<
    Anywayyyyy, enough of school crap. This outfit you're wearing is lovely. The cool stripes on this dress are edgy! I really like the peek of purple socks coming out of your boots. Nice touch of color :)

  8. You look cute and you don't look like it's 40 degrees outside! ;) I hope finals goes great for you!

  9. This has been the fastest year of my life for sure! Good luck with finals - you will look fabulous while you take them (love that dress)!

  10. Love this outfit, especially your dress and boots! And I know what you mean, when I have to study, I'm home and when I have a break, it seems like I have so much time to do everything else haha.

  11. I totally agree with this and I'm really into this dress.

  12. I hate the cold. Hate it. Seriously. IT's 28 degrees out and yet I'm going to go prance around outside this weekend multiple times for photos. I'm crazy.

    ANYHOW. Let's talk about how every post you do I see something I love and say 'Damn it, girl, why don't we live closer?' THAT FOX RING! That dress. GAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  13. Oh I agree! Except when you have those crazy horribly hard exams that you realize ever minute that you're not in class finals week has to be spent studying for it. but i'm glda that doesn't seen to be the case for you! they must be all over now so hope they went well! and I did not know your brother goes to ASU, how fun! what does he study and what year? that'd be so fun if you ever did pay him a visit! oh and you look absolutely adorable here!! I love all the neutral and the details in the accesories & patterns & am impressed you're in this w/ the cold too!

  14. So first of all: I bummed I missed your giveaway! Darn. Second, I completely agree with you! I actually secretly don't mind finals all, because all you have to do it study and wear sweats...not that you would ever wear sweats :O but I do, usually the same pairs for days, and then when I finally get dressed again I love it! Really cute outfit by the way! The stripes on the dress + color of the coat are perfect!
