Di Nuovo A Scuola : Back To School


Well, I did it ... I've gone back to school! No, I'm not quitting my day job to become a full-time student again. I am just taking a night class, Italiano beginners, and let me tell you, it doesn't feel like beginner's Italian! 

Maybe it's because I've been out of college for 12 years but it could also be related to the fact that my professore speaks to us only in Italian. Now Dallas and I have been to Italy 3 times in the last 4 years and I thought this would be a nice way to pay homage to my heritage. I had NO IDEA I was walking into the snake pit... but here I am! Cazzo!

I feel like most of my classmates have some sort of foreign language experience making the learning curve much easier for them. I probably screwed myself here but in high school, I opted to take American Sign Language instead of Spanish or French. Thus, I feel like I don't hear the words the way some people do. If I cannot see and listen to the words at the same time it is hard for me to hear the detail of the word structure. 

Bringing me to my next issue. Our textbook comes along with a CD for our studying pleasure. The only problem is ... I DON'T OWN A CD PLAYER! Who does?!?! Aren't we past the CD phase?!? My car doesn't even have a CD player in it! Everything is digital now! 

I've gone against the grain for four weeks now, trying to study on my own, but I am getting nowhere fast. I am so lost in the class that I am afraid to participate until I get myself caught up! So, I am sitting in my office today, at the only 2007 computer I know, dubbing in the CD to make a digital copy I can listen to on my phone! 

While I cram for tonight's class here is an adorable look that is as retro as my computer! Who doesn't love overalls and flannels from the 90's?! I found these skinny-legged bibs from Free People and paired them with a simple white tank and flannel button down that I found at Target! 

For my accessories, I went with an affordable, nude patent leather bootie from Fabrik Birkdale. I threw on my favorite signature hoop earrings and grabbed my Mahi leather backpack (zaino) and I am ready to hit the books! 

I love this Mahi bag for so many reasons! Mahi has a huge selection of bags, duffels, and backpacks to choose from! I chose my bag, not only because of its name (The Roma ... so fitting for my class) but also because Mahi personalizes their bags and packs! Check out the beautiful stitching of my initials on the back of this leather piece!
