I survived junior year! Well almost. I still have a couple more exams to get through, but thanks to these essentials — and the library's extended hours — testing week will be a breeze. Sweatpants are a cozy classic, and look stylish in orange ombr. Layering is vital when sitting in a hot classroom for three hours, so I rely on a paper-thin tee under a lightweight crew neck to keep cool. Hydration is also a must, and I carry ice cold H20 (sorry... I'm in chemistry mode) in a eco-chic water bottle. Random fact: looking at pretty colors can actually make you happier. So as much as I enjoy spending quality time with my textbooks, I think I'll take a study break and paint my nails a peachy salmon shade. But even more so than cute colors and comfy clothes, what's really getting me through the week is knowing that summer vacation is just around the corner. Pretty soon, the only school I'll be attending is the Fashion Institute of Technology.
