Study Abroad Semester in Review

For all my talk about study abroad, I realized I never went in-depth about the classes I took and what I learned. So, like I’ve done for some of my quarters at the University of Denver, I wanted to share a little recap about the four classes I took at the University of Glasgow and what I learned in each. If you read my blog post about differences in education between the U.S. and Scotland, then you probably already know I was a little disappointed with the academic aspect of my study abroad experience.

I cheated a little this month because I realized I don’t own any secondhand outerwear, and since I don’t really need another coat, either, I decided to skip a trip to the thrift store. Instead, I am styling this gorgeous brown blazer! It’s thick and relatively warm like a coat, so I figured, eh, close enough. Continue reading “Preppy Layers with The Thrifty Six”
