Dress Well, Test Well: Cream + Green

Hey y'all! So if you're like me, you've got finals coming up. And while we've all heard the expression "dress well, test well," many people (myself included) stick to the tee-shirt-and-norts routine. But I've started to believe this saying holds true. So over the next few days I'm going to be showing you my testing outfits that are comfy enough to take all those scantrons in but also look cute. Here we go.

So casual, but so cute.

"Is it focused?" she shouts to herself and prays for the best.

The jewels.

How pretty is the lace detailing?

Francesca's Sweater (similar) // Lucky Brand Flats
Fossil Watch // Crystal Earrings (similar)

I love this look and its simplicity. The green sweater adds a pop of color and keeps me warm in my always-cold school. Comfy flats are a must along with simple jeans and gold jewelry. 

I've decided to accompany each of these posts with a testing tip. My first one: eat. We all hear that we should get a good breakfast, but I think it's just as important beforehand. Nothing is more distracting than being hungry during a test, and a quick granola bar beforehand is just the solution. 

Okay this post is a bit of a milestone. The shoot for this post is the very first shoot I have done solely by myself with no help from my mom. I took every picture in this, that's probably why there's so many. So yeah, pretty excited and the tripod is my new best friend. Celebratory selfie because why not?
