OOTD: Cinco De Mayo

Saturday, May 9, 2015


Although Cinco De Mayo was during finals week, I took a slight inspiration from the bright holiday and wore these bright patterned shorts. I picked these up last spring from Francesca's and they are just adorable. Might I add one of the most comfortable pairs of shorts ever. They are the definition of "I feel like I'm wearing pajamas". 

Even though it was hot outside I opted for a sweater because I knew I was locking myself in the library for the entire day. My Tuesday of finals week was spent at the library (10 hours) and I got a total of about 3 hours of sleep. But, by Wednesday I was finished with finals, sold my text books back, and completed my sophomore year! Be on the look out for a post all about my year at Iowa State soon. 


During finals week I try and dress up, at least for part of the day, so I don't feel like a total slug. I am a firm believer in look good feel good. Well, at least until I got 3 hours of sleep. But, none the less, I think dressing up for finals does help! If your wearing clothes that feel like pajamas your going to feel tired and lazy. My suggestion wear something cute during the day then change at night into running shorts and a tee so you can cuddle up and study. 




To accessorize my look I opted for layering two of my favorite dainty necklaces. First is my small initial necklace from Kate Spade then my Twitter handle necklace from Marley Lilly. Also, I wore a stack of bracelets including my favorite Pura Vida bracelets of the moment and a pair of Kendra Scott stud earrings. 



Finals week of course calls for a messy bun. To create my bun I slick my hair up in a high pony then tease my pony and wrap it around to create the bun. This is such a quick and easy hair style that is still chic and fashionable. Well, fashionable in a "I'm trying to get my life together" kind of way. But hey it's finals week right?
