optimal finals attire

sweatshirt: wildfox (last seen here), pants: h&m, shoes: asos, bag: cambridge satchel, hat: polo ralph lauren, nails: chanel peridot (dupes: OPI in just spotted the lizard, gap nail polish in Gold Rush)

I was going to say how comfort is the goal of finals week dressing, but that holds the implication that comfort usually isn't my main objective when getting dressed. Which is false. I always dress for comfort. My key to optimization of finals dressing? Stick to the most basic pairings. Again, I feel like that implies that I don't stick to the same few combinations. Anyways, black bottom + white top= simple as it gets. Voila, the trendy version of sweatpants + sweatshirts. While we're (I'm) talking about this, let's bring up the circular nature of trends. These faux linen pants are from the summer of '09, the era of "the harem." Super serious drop crotches were never (and never will be) part of of my wardrobe. These pants got much love while I was away on vacation, or at my cousins house, or really anywhere that nobody from school could see me (oh, high school.) And now this updated take on the harem pant is back, and I'm embracing it-- in public this time #wooconfidence.

P.S Awesome blogger gal Mariana, the voice behind Going Teen, asked me some questions for her blogger Q&A, go check it out here!!

  12. That is definitely what I wore to my finals, haha. I actually owned two pairs of harem pants and I lived in them so much. You couldn't even tell they were pants because they were so drapey, but alas they got eaten by my washing machine and now are replaced by regular sweat pants, haha.

  14. oh harem pants would definitely fall into the finals attire category for me too. i like the harem pants with those shoes, something i'd definitely wear except i don't have harem pants i think, only harem-ish ones. hahaha. hope all went well with those exams!
