I'm not unreasonable I understand the comfort of yoga pants as well as sweatpants, I just don't think they should be worn outside the house. For the comfort factor, I would wear Slim Gym Skinny's from Aerie
(American Eagle if you do not have an Aerie around you). They are similar to leggings except that they are thicker and have a fold-over band which makes it flattering for every body-type. The cute lace detail along the side of the skinny pant add a sense of sass that I simply cannot resist.
Over sized sweaters are naturally a go-to for me. They're comfortable,versatile, and warm; perfect for those drafty classrooms and libraries. I tend to stick with neutral colored sweaters with stripes and throw on a fun colored scarf for a splash of color.
I LOVE boots! Most people would tend to wear UGGs, don't get me wrong UGGs are fantastic; they're warm, comfy, and cozy. However, I want to look more put together so a pair of classic leather motorcycle boots are my main squeeze. I chose FYREs for their extreme comfort and sleekness, as well as some nice thick socks for added warmth.
For a dash of prettiness some small gold jewelry and bright red nails will do the trick, nothing over-whelming. After all, I am studying and/or taking an exam so I don't want to be too distracted by all of my pretty details and can't focus!!
As for make up, KISS (keep it simple, stupid. lol). As much as I love my cat-eye, during finals I am often staying up late and sleeping in until the last possible moment, so the last thing I want to do is sleepily draw on my cat-eye when I have 20 minutes to get to class (Michigan State is a large campus so it takes a bit to get to/from class). Two coats of mascara and a little eye shadow to make my eyes pop and look more awake will do, as well as some chap-stick layered with some lip gloss for a simple but put together look. Set it with some setting spray for those late nights at Club Lib (The Library, hahaha) and Voila! I'm good to go!
