falling for France…

As I write this, I’m sitting at the kitchen table, struggling to learn the French language (read: I’m giving myself the best immersion class possible and dutifully studying the Sartorialist).  I’m falling for [fall inspired] French fashion.  So simple and chic.   I love the muted tones.

This week marks the last week in my quest to learn a foreign language.  I chose French.  It’s romantic.  & my boyfriend’s entire family is fluent in French.  Logical, right?

Maybe for someone else.  But my brain + trying to learn a language = failure.  Not to mention the fact that I’m taking it online and I haven’t applied myself like I should have.  I should have taken a foreign language as a youngster.  Kids learn so much faster than adults.  Thank you Google, for inventing this.  You’re a lifesaver!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, friends!!  I’ll be glued to my computer (not out of the ordinary) trying to cram 6 or so weeks of French into 1 weekend (out of the ordinary).

till Monday,

Rebecca

    Good luck! I think proficiency in any language just comes with time and use–and it's difficult to find use when you're in the US! Perhaps your boyfriend's family would make a pact to speak only in French around you, even if you beg and plead with them to translate… 😉

    I think you'll just need to move there for a while – doesn't that sound like a fun plan? I got my worst grade ever in Spanish class. I was terrible!!

    I love French, it is my favorite language ever. You should live in France, then you'll learn it in a flash. And beware of google translate, it is pretty horrible sometimes… They really need to work on their algorithms…

    Love these pretty photos! French fashion is chic and beautiful 🙂 I think learning languages is so awesome and important! I was a Spanish major, but I've been learning French via Rosetta Stone, which works like magic! If you decide to keep going with it, it really is totally awesome 🙂

    I need the skirt. It is so BEAUTIFUL. Like you! I agree with you about the foreign language. I am a total moron at learning them. I am destined to remain in english speaking countries… Good luck with French!

    Is there a reason for your French classes? They sound like… fun? No, but I'm sure it'll be awesome when you can speak it!

    Good luck with cramming! Don't be so hard on yourself, I tried to learn some French before a vacay to Paris and I wasn't able to put together a complete sentence! It is a hard language to learn. Great photos, I love the first look.

    Good luck with the French! I took it in college, but I've only managed to remember about 3 words of it. Haha.

    To answer your question, I use a Nikon D3000. My pictures are usually taken with the 35mm lens, although sometimes I use the standard that it came with. I love the 35mm! The quality of the photos is amazing, although the downside is that there is no zoom function. Womp, womp!
