pastel & neon

Finals start for me on December 1, with Thanksgiving week/weekend serving as "reading week." I've always been bitter about this, because it makes us choose between studying or taking time off to spend Thanksgiving with friends and family. My 1L year I chose studying, and it paid off, but last year my parents came to me for Thanksgiving and cooked in my apartment and this year they are doing the same. Having my parents arcound is both a blessing and burden because they understand that I need to study and can't spend too much time with them, but I personally feel guilty if I don't spend time with them despite their assurances that they understand my need to study. Anyway, I have a paper due the 28th, my first exam December 1, 2nd exam the 7th, and last exam the 12th. I'm happy everything is spaced out decently well, but December 13th can't come soon enough (the day I fly home). I'm looking forward to winter, snow, skiing, and not having anything pressing to do for 4 whole weeks.

And now for something completely unrelated, today I went the pastel route with my outfit.
Blouse: H&M
Tank: H&M
Jeans: Abercrombie
Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita
Bracelets: Movado, Fossil, Unknown, John Hardy
Necklace: David Yurman

And this weekend my outfit was pretty neon: (I only snapped this picture before I went out, and I debated whether to put it on the blog but I've never worn this shirt and figured it was something different)
Neon tank: TJ Maxx
Jacket: Tibi (via TJ Maxx)
Black Pants: Gap
Glitter Shoes: Dollhouse
Necklace: Forever 21 (long but wrapped twice here)
Bracelets: Movado, John Hardy, Fossil, Etsy, Tiffany, Unknown

  1. I completely understand what it is like to be a student while the holidays are taking place! Good luck on your exams, I felt lucky that during my MBA program we were done during the week of Thanksgiving...
