Okay, I know you guys are really excited, but first-this outfit is one of those that I put on, and was immediately attracted to because of comfort. I like this skirt because of the bright, Springy color however, it is also surprisingly versatile. Pairing it with this sleeveless shirt and a pair of sandals was a no-brainer…and thank goodness for no-brainer outfits this week, because I will be using my brain way too much for finals week. I just keep my sights set on my favorite part of finals week-the day I sell back my textbooks. I go in there with my bag full of books that I paid way too much money for in hopes of receiving, maybe, a quarter of what I paid for them originally.  However, that’s the life of a college student- you have to buy books! …Or do you?

I recently learned about the ever-so convenient, money-saving textbook rental program CampusBookRentals.com. With this site you can rent textbooks for the duration of the semester 40-90% cheaper than if you buy them elsewhere! It’s also nice because they have free shipping both ways, and you’re even allowed to highlight in the books you rent. So, I know a lot of you readers are students like me, and in honor of my upcoming graduation, CampusBookRentals has offered a $50 gift card towards a book rental for the upcoming Summer or Fall semesters to one of Living in Color’s student readers!
