Today I had both my literature and history classes to attend. Interestingly, both of them were more about history than literature was about poetry; I generally get a good idea of the happenings in the world through my literature class because, for example, the concept of socialism was rampant through America in the early 1900s, and Jack London exemplifies this in his Martin Eden. As time has passed through the year, my teacher has also required more reading of background information of the literature; as we’ve begun this quarter by studying the poetry of men like John Donne, George Herbert, and William Blake, we are now reading about the Romantic Era, and learning how all of the political, economic, and social problems contributed to the different poetry created by Wordsworth, Coleridge, Percy Shelley, and others.
This lace cardigan is one of my favorites. I’ve had it for two and a half years, and for the first eighteen months or so of owning it I never really wore it—I didn’t really think it could be worn with anything but church/business fashion. Since my style has evolved, I’ve learned that it’s okay to wear “fancy” items with jeans; it just makes the outfit look that much more classy.


  1. I love wearing fancy items with jeans. I makes your whole wardrobe more versatile and a dressed up casual look is so fun! Great cardigan!

    1. It is fun, isn't it? Thank you so much for spending the time to leave a comment, Laura!
