A Keepsake of Mama Coco





Well today my spring semester started!! I wore my grandma's bracelet to remember her and because I felt like the day needed a splash of color since the day was so very bleak. Funny thing is, it got sunny right after I took these photos. I got my gorgeous knitted top from Chico's...this was my first purchase from Chico's and the top is perfect at least I feel that way. I also felt weird wearing jeans because I typically always dress up and this week I didn't want to attract too much attention so I decided to wear more "casual" clothes. I must say I absolutely hate wearing normal clothes!! It feels like totally just..so normal...but next week come I'll be Miss Fancy Pants again...

Anyways about my first day..well today I only had a Shakespeare Honors class. Boy I was actually really excited for that class (I know I am a nerd) then we started to discuss some Shakespeare...wow I felt so out of my element!! The whole class had training in some sort of literature course or analyzing literature! This one guy had even directed a couple of Shakespeare plays. My friend and I were so lost! I even turned to this one girl and tried talking to her about how nervous I was for this class and how I was so confused. This girl said back to me "Really!? That is so unlike you?!" I was like "I know!!!" Typically I am decent in English and can I understand majority of the literature I read but this was just a different language. I am debating dropping but I feel like when I am done with this semster I will be really proud of myself! So I am going to be asking for some prayers! Hahaha I am taking 5 courses! I am so very nervous...On the bright side...according to RateMyProfessor some teachers are supposed to be cute...at least that will ease my pain...I must be off now...I must analyze Shakespeare's sonnet 130.

  3. Blah, in school all we did was analyze different literature, it was really boring and confusing. I don't know how you do it there, but we had to dig deep into the mind of the author, try to dismember every sentence and every word finding some sort of unwritten meaning. For example, he wrote the drapes were blue, which is the author's way of showing us that life is hard and gray and blah blah. I seriously doubt the point in this...Anyway, your outfit is so cute, casual adn laid back :-)

  11. I love wearing things that remind me of my grandmother. I miss her so much! Your bracelet is very pretty. I'm glad you added it. And the sweater is so pretty and comfy cozy!

  12. lol...i know what you mean by disliking normal clothes! I do too. Since i'm currently in the process of studying for my state board licence exam, my days are usually spent in the library and because it gets kinda chilly in there, I'm usually in jeans and slouchy sweaters and I hate it! Which is why i look forward to the weekends like a starved being lol. That bracelet is beautiful and has such a sentimental value to it. I just love pieces like that.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ha, I dislike normal clothes too, but if I want to blend into the crowd I'd rather slip some jeans on. This is mainly when I am going to the supermarket on my own or something. When I am in friends I always wear dresses.

    I'm sure the class will get easier, just keep at it!

  59. Thank you for the kind comment on my blog im glad I've encouraged you to dig out your striped dress. I love your sweater. I wish I done Shakespeare course- we done two plays in English class I love his work. The way he writes is fantastic even though it's English it's almost like a different language

  60. That's a great casual outfit with a delicate top adding femininity. Your bracelet is so pretty too. Do persevere with Shakespeare - it is so different and difficult at first but it does get easier as you get used to the language used.
