I'm back with week six of Style Perspectives with The Blended Blog. This week our host is Lana - and our theme is how to style a spring sweater, jeans, and flats.

If you can believe it I do not own any flats.  I own flip flops, sneakers, and my favorite Sam Edelman Gigi sandals, but I do not own any closed toe pointy flats, loafers, lace up shoes - or anything that might qualify as "flats".  I think the last time I owned flats - I was in college.  And, I will not mention how many years ago that was - but I do have a milestone coming up this May - anyone guess how many years?

In thinking about college - I was one of those students who changed their major several times.  I could not figure out what I wanted to do. (And, actually I am still trying to figure it out.)  I started college as a biology major, then switched to psychology, then education (specialty in high school biology and math), and then decided to go back to just general biologyI chose a diverse biology curriculum from pre-med microbiology and biochemistry to environmental science and ecology.  For one of my environmental classes, I spent a week hiking in the Smoky Mountains and camping outside in an open air pavilion on top of a mountain.  My pre-med microbiology and biochemistry classes were not as "fun" - but rather intense.  For the tests, our instructor would give us a list of 30 essays to prepare.  And, on the day of the test, he would pick just 5 of them for us to answer.  We would get an empty blue book (if those still exist) and 50 minutes to write our 5 essay answers.  The nights before those exams were the only times in college I had an "all-nighter".  I would spend the entire night researching the answers. (Partly because I never paid attention in class or to the reading.) After the exams, I would reward myself by going shopping, which was actually more browsing - because I was in college.  I am happy to say though with all of my changes in my major,  I did however manage to graduate in four years!

So, that is a little more about me... now back to my spring sweater - and how I wore the cardigan above last fall.  And, this cardigan is very similar to the one I wore on Monday - it is just a little brighter and shorter.

  8. Loving all these sweaters you have been featuring! They look fantastic on you! And so nice to get to know a little more about you! Impressive that you graduated in 4 years having changed majors so many times. :) And oh those blue books...does everyone just get a laptop now? haha.

  9. You look fabulous in yellow! Definitely a great spring sweater! Love the leopard pumps as well. If I was more comfortable in heels I'd have a closet full, but I prefer flats.

  13. I love this yellow sweater! So bright & springy. I changed majors a bunch of times in college too - I started in communications, went to architecture, and finally decided on fashion/retail management. I have no idea how I graduated in 4 years!

  14. Yellow and Leopard for the win! I can't believe you don't have any flats outside flip flops. Time to get shopping girlfriend!

  19. What a pretty yellow sweater, and I love how you added some edge with black. I was also someone who changed her major SO MANY TIMES in college, and I still have yet to figure out what I want to do with my life. Glad I'm not alone, ha!

  20. I think I need more yellow in my closet! And I love those gorgeous shoes on you!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okay, I can't decide which shoes I want more!!! Also, I loved your college story!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Glad to read I am not the only college student who dabbled in a few majors before graduating (pretty much for me) on time. I remember blue books...oops, should I admit that publicly. Love your buttercup yellow sweater. I wear a whole lot of heels, too, but have some flats. Always so put-together and perfect, Lisa.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Blue books were still around when I was in college too! I hear you on flats though, I have a few pairs of Sperrys, but that is about it. It is hard to find a pair that fits my weird feet!

  24. I love the contrast of yellow and black. Thanks for adding your fashion flair to the My Refined Style Linkup.
