While laying bed thinking about what to wear and buying time because I did not want to leave the warmth of my bed for Economics class. I reflected on how I got into to the field of Sustainable Development. Believe it or not, it started in some sort of way with my love for getting dressed up and traveling.
For high school, I went to an all girls catholic school. We wore less than fashionable polyester long pleated royal blue skirts, with a cream shirt and a make shift tie. In the 9th grade when it was time to choose subjects for a "career path" I opted for geography, the only subject that had frequently had all day trips to rural parts of Jamaica where I became more interested in inequality, class, rural poverty etc. and was allowed to wear t-shirt and denim and ........(wait for it) .....earrings! As a Geography major in college the field trips continued.
Eleven years post high school I am still excited about field trips. Today we are off to the Boston Nature Center for my Eco- tourism class.
So paying homage to my start I backed out a pair of denim for field trip day!
Argyle sweater - Gift from my BFF( since 9th in high school too)
Silk lace sleeve shirt- INC (Macy's)
Nude wedges- Nine West
Gold belt - Betsy Johnson
be good. do better. look your best.
