Yesterday I showed you one of my study outfits, and today I’ve got an actual exam-taking outfit on the menu. I’m not the pajama-wearing type even during finals because I just feel more “with it” when I take the time to get dressed. Sometimes I even brush my hair.

Still, I definitely go for comfort, and more importantly, I don’t wear anything distracting. A statement necklace any other day is great, but for some reason on test day they seem to weigh a hundred pounds. So I pretty much go for zero jewelry – the only exception is my wedding band. Otherwise I might get confused and think I’m single, and everyone knows that a room full of stress-ridden law students is a great place to hook up.

Oh, and in case you think I’m full of BS for acting like I carry a cute clutch to an exam: shoooot, girl, you know I wouldn’t lie to you! This oversized pouch actually fits all the stuff I usually carry in a purse, and then it slips easily inside the tote bag I carry to school. That way I still technically only carry one bag at a time, and if I do anything afterwards, I can pull out the clutch and leave the bulky tote in my car. It’s pretty genius of me, actually. That’s why I’m gonna be a lawyer.

This pastel-tastic look was actually the first outfit I put together for Looking Lucky, but thanks to a busy day (work, dinner, theater) followed by a lot of rain, it took awhile to get out and take photos of it. Worth the wait I think…I love this outfit!

I’m really digging these shoes. It’s funny though…in February I bought “nude” pumps but I think these pumps are actually closer to my actual skin tone. Next time I fill out a form that asks for my race, I’ll check “other” and write in “dusty rose.”
