Dainty & Studios

The end of the semester is so near that I can taste it! It tastes like a yummy hot americano with a little bit of soy milk and honey in it. Well, that might have been what I was drinking yesterday while finishing up a final online class. I'm telling you though, it was delicious! If I can just have one of those every day until finals are officially over, I will be a happy lady!

It was extra chilly out yesterday, but under all of my layers (which I took off because the sun poked out from behind the clouds and felt so good on my chilly bones) I wanted to wear something pretty and dainty. I'm absolutely loving the dainty details of this I Heart Ronson blouse from Jcpenney. The collar is darling, and the flowy sleeves just feel like me.

Every student needs a great satchel! Wouldn't you agree? This one perfectly fits all of my Grad school notebooks and all of my other purse goodies. I just love a classic bag!

This morning I'm warming up with the very last of my Trader Joe's pumpkin spice coffee. I promised myself I wouldn't by the new Trader Joe's gingerbread coffee until I finished this one, so now I can make a quick trip to TJs to pick some up. I swear, amazing grocery stores are my guilty pleasure. I could stay in them for hours checking out all of the yummy food and coffee!

Today is for, you guessed it, more time spent on my final papers. I'm almost there though, so I don't mind finishing them up! I'm so excited just to say that I finished my first semester in Grad school. For years I thought starting Grad school seemed so far away, and now I'm about to finish up my first semester! Life sure does go by quickly!

What are you up to today? What's your favorite hot drink currently?

  1. this outfit is the perfect mix of comfy and chic! the blouse looks amazing on you, and i love that satchel, as well!

  2. Chelsea, where are you going to grad school? ASU? I'll be starting there as a grad student next fall! (Along with teaching!) What's your area of study?

    Oh, and today I've been preparing for finals as well, I can't wait until they're over! My favorite drink lately is a skinny eggnog latte. Interesting, I know! It's pretty delicious though.

  3. Grocery stores are my guilty pleasure too. I love looking at all the interesting food and drinks. Especially in places like Trader Joes. I think I would go broke if there was a Trader Joes near by me.

  4. I found your blog a short while ago... I love it so much!

  5. I love your outfits Chelsea! My favorite drink as of late is plain 'ol black coffee. It's cheap and quick to make.

  6. Oo! Love the top and love the bag, way to go JCPenney! Good luck finishing up your papers, and let me know how the gingerbread coffee tastes! I can't decide if I should run out and buy some:)

  7. I am excited for this semester's end too! Yay! I love the satchel. I had a very similar one all through grad school. And I just bought a nearly identical pair of low black boots.

  8. CHAI always proper homemade chai!
