Ever since I entered college, sleep hasn't really been on my top priorities list. It does sound cliche, but it really has nothing to do with the "Social Life, Sleep, Grades: Pick two" stereotype. My take on it is that you can have all three. I mean, you can socialize in class, while you work on getting good grades, and then sleep when you have to, right? Anyway, getting to my point. Well, I haven't exactly been getting the amounts of sleep that I need simply because I waste my time like none other. I get my homework done, get all excited because there's time to sleep, then somehow end up socializing with people until ridiculously late hours.

This behavior does have its positive outcomes, though. I've developed a habit of trying to dress extra nice every time I'm about to: a. fall asleep in class, or b. fail an important exam. I guess I feel much more motivated to stay awake and get through the day when I get a bunch of compliments. I usually wear really bright colors during such times. There's something about the energy that comes along with wearing hot pink...
This was my outfit yesterday, when I was extremely tired/sad/angry and everything in between! I tried something slightly business-y and formal, but still fun :)

dress- Forever21
necklace- thrifted
shoes- Xhilaration

This dress is my prized possession! It's originally a Forever 21 dress, but I bought it at Plato's Closet for $10. It's perfect for those days when you don't want to actively try to find a good outfit. Usually maxi dresses in general are perfect for those days. Slip on a dress, put on a pair of generic wedges and there you have it! Bonus: if you do wear a maxi dress with wedges, it adds to your height! And I, for one, absolutely love looking tall :)
