Today is the first day of my last semester of coursework. To celebrate my last first day of classes, I did a classic nerd look--white button-down and sweater vest and argyle socks--and took a picture on the front porch, like my mother did for every first day of school for twelve years.

It's pretty chilly today and I'm starting to ride my bicycle to school again--brrr! After a month of pleasure reading and laziness, I'm having a little trouble getting up early and hopping on my bike in below freezing weather.

But the fact that it's the first day of classes galvanizes me, as it always has.

You look super cute and nerdy! Congrats on being into your last semester of courses! Every now and then I feel a little nostalgic for a seminar - it's been quite a while.

Love the "nerd" chic look! I always have trouble wearing ballet flats in winter due to the cold factor. I love how you are wearing them with argyle socks.

I love the first day of school picture tradition. I think I'll do the same when my DD starts going to school.

I'm a total wimp... I won't even think about biking to work until like March/April!

Oh hi dear! First of all: the last post you read on my blog got an English version! Check it out later, ok? -- Sometimes I'm just lazy to translate everything because most of the time I just can't find the right words/expressions! I'm afraid of being misunderstood because of my Brazilian English, haha! -- Anyways, you look great and I do want to wear nerdy just like you. After reading your blog I got more strict when I'm buying my clothes. This outfit is perfect for a first day - even if it is the last one. And you are super girl, because I don't know if I'd be able to ride a bike when it's freezing outside!

You rock! Big kiss, Larysse xD

SO cute! Happy last first day!

Musing Around said...

Love it! You're totally right about over dressing the first day and looking unprepared. I think you're clothes are saying all the right things! Oh, and big hooray for last semester of coursework! This is my first semester of NO coursework. I hardly know what to do with myself, oh yeah, that dissertation thing!
