W is for Wide Leg

Today's challenge for "The ABC's of Style" was "W is for Wide Leg."

"Great!" I thought to myself with a smile.  After all, I wear wide leg jeans nearly every day of my life.  This should be an easy one!

So I decided to challenge myself a little bit more and chose my wide legged purple pants for today. 

And I kind of think it all went downhill from there.  Because as cute as I thought this looked in person, I just couldn't seem to get it to photograph right.  I fear I may be invoking a little bit too much of the 70's with this outfit....




What I'm Wearing:
Top:  Eddie Bauer (thrifted) |  Pants:  Old Navy (hand-me-down from sister)  |  Belt:  Chiang Mai, Thailand Walking Street  |  Shoes:  Target  |  Necklace:  Hand-me-down from Grandma (Vintage) 

Today I took a KILLER pharmacology exam, so my brain is completely fried.  That's why I opted for glasses today (my eyes are exhausted from studying) and the hair's in a messy bun.  I got about four hours of sleep last night, so I think it's time for a nap before I hit the books again (parasitology this time around).  It's days like today when I have to remind myself of how lucky I am in to be in vet school.  It's hard to feel thankful when you're exhausted!

Anyway, I'm not going to do perfectly on every test.  And that's OK...

In the end, it will all be worth it.
