Busy day layers

This week marks my very last week of school for the fall semester. Lately I've been spending my days, studying, drinking coffee and/or tea, stressing over finals, and finishing up projects. I've been so busy, and literally running off to school every morning that I haven't had time to plan out pretty winter outfits (I know I should do this ahead of time), so I been going with wearing my go-to items almost every day, just to keep to my stress level down and keep me sane.

Headband: Local boutique
Scarf: Forever 21
Peace jacket: Lucky Brand
Cardigan: Banana Republic
T-shirt: Frenchi
Jeans: Levi's
Moccs: Minnetonkas

I can honestly say that I am so excited for school to be over, and to be on holiday break. This will be my last fall semester as an undergrad, and I am very thankful for that.

Lately I've been trying not to stress too much about school, but that really hasn't been happening for me. I'm not the type of person to just go with the flow, unfortunately, and stress about anything, and everything all at once. Scott is always telling me to just take one day at a time, but for me that always seems impossible.

I bought this headband earlier this year at a local boutique. I'm not sure who made it, but I certainly adore it.

This week I am most looking forward to being done with classes for the semester (almost there), making Scott and I's holiday cards and sending them out, and enjoying some down time after all the mess of finals is over.

What are you looking forward to this week?


  1. Chelsea! I adore your hair so much!

    We need to get together soon!

  2. Very cute- I usually wear go to outfits in the winter- lots of layers and less thinking.

  3. cute! i'm happy for you that you're almost done and you'll get a little break! :)

    i wander, i wonder

  4. Beautiful headband! I hope you have a stress free week! The end of the semester is ughhh for me! Too much stress :[.

  5. I know exactly how you feel. Sometimes looking cute just isn't on the to-do list - although you look super adorable in this post! I'm in awe that you can still think to accessorize so cutely when you're swamped with finals. I'm lucky if I can remember to put my contacts in.

    Good luck with wrapping up school! I'm definitely cheering for you - it's so wonderful on the other side, you're so close!

  6. scott def gave you some good advice. my fiance has to remind me of that so many times! hang in there, friend. christmas break is almost here!! :)

  7. your hair and your shoes = a very jealous me. love them!! I'm still growing out my dumbo "mommy haircut" mistake of '09. sigh.
