I kind of backed myself into a corner for the end of the Looking Lucky challenge. The last trend I had to do was neon, which I thought would be easy because I have tons of bright colors in my closet. Well, bright isn’t quite the same thing as neon, and it turns out my choices were actually pretty limited. My best option was this highlighter yellow pencil skirt, but the only occasion I had to dress for was a casual brunch, so I dressed it down as much as I could. I actually really like how it turned out. Maybe I’ll make casual pencil skirt brunches a new thing. You heard it here first.
By the way, I’m putting this post together on the eve of my first exam of my last semester – just four little tests and I’ll be done with law school! In case you’re wondering why I’m not studying right now, let me explain. I’ve found that I’m in a much better state of mind for a big exam when I stop studying around 7:00 the night before. Then I can have some dinner, relax, watch some mindless TV, and get to bed early. The later I study, the more I start to worry that I don’t know enough, and the less likely I am to actually absorb anything.
Maybe it’s counterintuitive, but sometimes NOT studying (in moderation) is a good way to prepare for a test just because it helps you stay sane! In fact, that’s exactly why I went to brunch in this outfit. During finals week (which is really finals weeks plural), I try to get out of the house at least every other day. Sometimes I study at Starbucks, or take a break for a couple hours to go out to dinner or the mall. Getting out of my sweatpants and looking like an actual functioning adult human being is a healthy thing in my book.
Speaking of books, maybe I’ll take one more look at mine before tomorrow morning. Just in case.
