To all of the college students's finals week (ugh)! Although finals week is the worst week of the semester, it also means that we're thaaat much closer to summer. Therefore, we should dress like it! I'm a firm believer in dressing to impress, even if it's just for myself. This includes test days when all you want to do is throw on a pair of yoga pants. Dressing up makes me feel confident and prepared for the day, which is the attitude you'll need to ace those exams.

One outfit option is to wear a maxi skirt with a cute t-shirt tied at the hip, denim jacket and sandals. A while back I wrote a post about how great maxi skirts are because they're basically like yoga pants in skirt form. Instead of wearing yoga pants all week, try wearing a maxi skirt! They're soft and flowy making them the perfect pieces to wear on exam days. Another option is a shorter cotton dress. Similar to a maxi skirt, the cotton fabric is soft and flowy--perfect for warm days when you could be taking an exam in a stuffy classroom. One last option is a spring version of the popular leggings and sweater combo. Wear a long, loose-fitting tank top underneath your sweater as an extra layer in case you're exam room is too hot or you're getting nervous chills before taking your final (this always happens to me). The next step is to accessorize. Jewelry always makes me feel put together, so I like to throw on some cute earrings and a few bracelets before walking out the door.

Now that I've shared a few finals week outfits that are cute and comfortable, you have no excuse to wear yoga pants (and USA Today College agrees)! That may sound harsh, but honestly, you'll feel so much better taking an exam when you're feeling confident with how you look. Best of luck during finals week!
