My "Professional" Look

Yesterday I had orientation at the children's hospital where I am doing my clinical hours this rotation, so we were asked to dress in "business casual" attire.  Our instructor let us know that we should wear very comfy shoes as we were going to be taking a tour of the hospital (and she wasn't kidding, we saw just about everything!), and we weren't able to wear open-toes.  So I had to bring out the plain-jane black flats.  
Outfit Details:
Gray Camisole - Lane Bryant (I have gotten good use out of this baby.  I wish I had bought more!)
Purple Ruffle Blouse - Lane Bryant Outlet in 2008, I believe.  This is actually a wrap top, (which is probably the only reason it still fits!) with a ruffle on one side of the neckline.  It's difficult to see in the photos. 
Grey Trousers - Old Navy 
Black Flats - Croft & Barrow brand via Kohls
Forlorn-looking Dog - 10 month old Schnoodle 

  Of course we had to wear our super-flattering lab coats, as well.  You can see how enthused Trixie is with the coat.  
Ribbon Rosette Necklace - Forever 21 (I think?)
Earrings - Forever 21
Leaf-shaped Bangle - Avenue

I loved all the comments from yesterday's post!  I think the military jacket got the most comments I've ever had on an outfit post. Thanks, guys.  : ) 


  1. You look great! I work in a pharmacy and have to wear the lab coat, it always makes me feel bigger... uggg

  2. Love the colors of the top and the necklace, looking gorgeous as usual.

  3. Love the colors in your top. Looking very cute and professional!

  4. Andria - I know exactly what you mean!

    Michaniya - Thanks, you are so sweet!

    Cid - Purple is my favorite color, I'm not sure why I don't have more of it in my wardrobe. Thanks so much for the comment. : )

  5. Love that you picked up on the white lab coat with the white background in your shirt and necklace! :-)

    You look great and I really do love that top!

  6. That shirt is gorgeous on you. The colours are perfect, and it has this really pretty flowy feel to it that I love!

  7. I love how bright and cheerful looking your outfit was. Even with the lab coat on I'm sure you brightened up the hospital.

  8. Kimberly - Thank you so much! That lab coat is so blah.

    fashionflirt - I love the flowy-ness of the top too, it's what really drew me to it. : )

    Lisa - You are too sweet!
