Aw this is great. I've been writing essays for hours and hours the past couple of days. I don't have any in-class finals left, but I guess I can at least look cute when I turn in my essay tomorrow. :-P

Thanks for great tips! This is just how I feel at the moment. So fed up with exams. I'm actually geting ready to go to uni now to study for my last exam and was going to put on something really sloppy, but you've inspired me to try your approach instead

i have exams too, i find preparing my outfits for the week works nicely. i feel its better to allocate myself 10 minutes of guilt free outfit complilation than trying to put together outfits in a stressed-out-creativity-void five minutes in the morning. WE HAVE REPUTATIONS TO UPHOLD LADIES!! x

These past couple of weeks have been hell too and i wore a similar outfit recently just so I would look decent while stressed. I totally agree with you on this one! Good luck! :)

This outfit is gorgeous! I feel like throwing on whatever I can find, e.g. hoody, at the moment, but you look chic as normal!

Girll i'm going through a load of exams too. I don't think I can pull off not washing my hair for over 2 days, it gets too oily and obvious that i didn't wash. Sexy

actually, i think this outfit, its truthful when in dire times, put on comfy pieces that are flattering. the messy hair looks amazing on you.
