White Lattice

Ya know that saying, "Don't go to bed mad," well I think there should be a similar saying that goes "Don't go to bed stressed." Yep, it's already happened. The grad school gods have thrown their storms down on me and now I'm just trying to swim through. Today is a new day though, and I'm ready to handle things in a new manner.

With my new school schedule I only attend an actual in-person class once a week for three hours. During my time as an undergraduate I was so used to getting up every morning, making myself look presentable, and rushing off to campus to attend class and study during my in-between breaks. Now that I don't have that schedule anymore, I'm finding it easy to fall into this lull that I do not want to be in. So I've decided that I need to make more of an effort to get up early, great my day with a fun outfit, and go someplace other than my home that I know I can be productive in. It's just like my old routine, but new and improved!

This outfit is really made me feel good about myself. I felt like the put together Grad School student that I know I should be. I still find it so hard to believe sometimes that my schooling now has nothing to do with Journalism. What used to seem like my whole world has now changed and repositioned itself in my life. I guess that's growing up though!

It's the weekend and I'm really excited to have a blogger meet-up with Brandi and her sweet little girl! There will also be yoga with Courtney, and lots of homework to be done this weekend. I think a movie should be thrown in the mix as well, ya know, just to even things out.

Outfit details:
Polka dot dress: Modcloth
Flats: Ruby and Bloom

What does your daily schedule look like?

  1. what a gorgeous bag! i love it!!! hope you and scott have a fantastic weekend, love!

  2. You look great in polka dots, love em'!


  3. Beautiful! I seem to always go to bed stressed, it's an awful feeling.

  4. going to bed stressed? there are pills for that. when i am stressed sleep doesnt happen, or it happens in a very ugly way. im talking night terrors and teeth grinding. sometimes a little wine helps, or benadryl, lol.


  5. I always go to campus 9-5 & I have 0 classes to attend. Somedays, getting all dressed up to go there is the one thing I look forward to, but once I'm ther I'm always productive ( & looking cute becomes a bonus). Also, I have found the higher up the academic ladder I climb the more disenchanted I become with academia. Unfortunately, academia is like a bad boyfriend - one day it will break your heart ...

  6. Getting up and dressed is so important to feeling good and productive. I learned that too from being lazy over the summer. And a good dress like that helps too! :]

  7. sending lots of stress relieving hugs your way chelsea!

  8. My daily schedule is up at 6:00, work 6:30 to 5, Go home, do some crafts and go to sleep! So boring! On the weekends I get to put on cute outfits and do my hair, even if all I do is stay in and hang out with my boyfriend. If I didn't get up and get dressed on Saturday and Sunday I probably wouldn't get anything done.

    I love the purse!! Black, white and red is such a great combo.

  9. Oh gosh, you're kinda scaring me about grad school but it sounds like you have a good plan. I have to make myself get up at the same time every day or I'm not productive at all. Don't be stressed! Good luck!

  10. You're so pretty! :) Sorry you're all stressed out right now. Make sure you go see that movie!

  11. I so know what you mean about the grad school schedule being SO different. It's definitely a change, but after awhile it'll feel like old news :)
