Last Monday, May 8th, was the final exam for my class.  The official last day of the exam period was May 15th.  By noon on Wednesday the 17th final grades had to be turned in along with attendance records and the other end of semester paperwork.  Luckily, because I only had to proctor one exam on the first day of the week I was able to have ample time to get them graded and my final paperwork submitted Friday of last week.

This week I’ve just been taking it easy and enjoying the extra time that I have outside of the classroom and freed up since I don’t have to prepare for lecture or grade papers or any of that sort of thing.  But, I’ve also been taking a much-needed break from other things too— namely pre-selecting outfits and blogging.  I am going on vacation soon so a lot of my “favorite” and versatile pieces are set aside for vacation.  It’s not like I don’t have other clothes but I just haven’t been feeling very inspired and energized to create outfits.  I’ve sort of just been throwing on whatever suits my fancy in the morning.  Here are two outfits that I wore this week.

This outfit I wore on Monday.  I bought these jeans over the weekend from Old Navy.  They are a dark wash cropped boyfriend style jean.  I thought that they would be a good addition to my closet.  However, I thought that they would be a bit looser and more relaxed than they are.  I maybe should have gone up a size to get the look that I was going for.  I wore this collared henley tunic over a turquoise tank top and topped it with a teal blazer.  Lastly, I added in some silver and turquoise earrings and slipped on my black ballet flats.  This outfit was comfortable but felt pulled together.

Tuesday I went with a different silhouette.  I paired my medium wash skinny jeans with a t-shirt.  This t-shirt is pretty long so instead of tucking it in and blousing it I opted to wear it out.  It’s a small twist but I think it brings some interest to an outfit that’s otherwise just jeans and a t-shirt.  In keeping with the slightly more elevated feel of the outfit, I cuffed my jeans and went with gold sparkly ballet flats as opposed to tennis shoes or another casual type of shoe.  Silver earrings and a silver watch completed the outfit. That’s it so far– I didn’t snap any pictures of my outfit from Thursday and I’m not planning on taking any this morning, either.
