Even though my capsule wardrobe has now come to an end, I realized that I really enjoy writing weekly recap posts and sharing my OOTDs each Saturday. After all, I wear a lot more outfits than just the two I feature in my Monday and Thursday blog posts each week, and these recap posts allow me to share those additional looks with you. Not to mention, it holds me accountable to get dressed every day! I haven’t decided yet what the best title/format is for these recap posts, but bear with me as I try some things out in the coming weeks.

I virtually attended the last lecture of my GIS class for the quarter, followed by a Zoom meeting for my Passion Planner ambassadorship (if you’re in need of a new planner for 2021, check out this post and use my discount code GRACEG10—Passion Planner is having a huge sale right now). This dress is a rather fancy item for just lounging around the house, but now that I have my full closet back, I’ve been having so much fun breaking out different pieces!

I had my criminology and sustainability lectures back-to-back in the morning, and I went for a walk with my mom after lunch. When quarantine first started, my parents and I got into the habit of playing Bananagrams at least three times a day at lunch time, so now that I’m back home, I’ve been loving playing again. At 2:40, I registered for my classes for next quarter, and for once I got everything I wanted! I have had such a difficult time registering in the past and rarely get my first-choice courses. But now that I’m shifting focus to my geography second major, it seems that geography is much less popular than criminology (lucky for me).

I admittedly spent the entire morning in my lounge clothes, working on my final GIS project and asking my professor questions during virtual office hours. The project involves making several maps of Denver and geographically measuring the city’s diversity, which is kind of difficult but really cool to be able to do. I went on another walk with my mom, and we watched the third Harry Potter movie after dinner (we’ve been having a Harry Potter marathon all week and are watching one a night).

Today was the last day of classes for the quarter! After my criminology and sustainability lectures in the morning (sustainability was super interesting today—we discussed renewable energy and offshore wind farms!), I spent the afternoon studying for and then taking my two-hour GIS final exam. It was a lot harder than I expected, and I should’ve studied more. But oh well, at least I looked cute! I think today’s outfit was my favorite from the week.

I slept in today and then finished up my GIS project, which was due at midnight tonight. Other than that, I’m not sure what else I accomplished—obviously there was a lot of time-wasting to be had! Unfortunately, while classes are over, the quarter isn’t officially finished for me just yet. My criminology and Hindu classes require final essays, and my sustainability final exam isn’t until after Thanksgiving. So close yet still so far!

After finishing this blog post, today’s plan includes writing birthday thank you notes, accomplishing tasks for my research position, and planning outfits for upcoming blog posts (I desperately need to take some photos). Life is definitely less exciting back at home—although, as I am writing this, I see a massive spider crawling across the carpet towards me… not the kind of excitement I was hoping for—eek!
Which outfit from this week is your favorite?? I’d love to hear in the comments below! Usually I would take my daily outfit pics in front of my full length mirror, but here at home, the lighting in my room is terrible. I decided to take my OOTD pics outside instead, which is much more of a hassle and less uniform, but at least the lighting is decent. What do you think?
As always, thank you so much for stopping by my little blog. Your support means so much to me, and I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!
Miles of smiles,
