Date Night! - Plus Size Daily Outfit

I already filled you guys in on the date Jimmy and I went on this past weekend, so I thought I would share with you what I wore.  

Sorry for the blurry photo.  Jimmy took it when we were leaving, and it was already getting dark outside. 

Outfit Details: 
Purple Dress - Old Navy (This is one of my favorite dresses.  It's so easy to wear and incredibly comfortable.)
Silver Belt - I've had it a few years, and don't remember where it came from.
Denim Jacket - Avenue 
Necklace - Fashion Bug (I think?)
Leopard Flats - Old Navy (These are fast becoming my go-to shoes!)
Bag - SimplyBe (won in a blog giveaway)

Just a heads-up, I probably won't be posting any outfits here until the weekend.  I have some posts planned, but I'll be wearing scrubs the rest of the week, so no outfits.  Blech.  
I'm counting down the days (6 actual school/clinical days) until next Wednesday, which is my last day of this rotation.  Then I am off until after New Years.  
It cannot come soon enough.
I have never, ever cried because of school before this quarter, but last week I had a little breakdown at my kitchen table after getting back an assignment that my instructor said she was disappointed in.  I keep trying and trying to please her, and it seems I can't do anything the way she wants it.  *sigh*
I have a paper and a journal that are due Friday, a four hour clinical today with a long and detailed care plan (28 pages) to do and turn in tomorrow (which means about 3-4 hours of sleep tonight).  Tomorrow, I also have a 12-hour clinical shift (I have to make up the four hour shift that I missed when I had food poisoning), which is going to kick my butt, because it's in the ICU and of course, these people are really sick and need care continuously.  So, I'll get home at about 8pm tomorrow evening, and have to study for a quiz that's set for Friday, which is basically over an entire unit.  Then next Tuesday, I have performance evaluations which are something we do every rotation where we have to take a short quiz, then perform a skill (e.g. inserting an IV) for our instructors to observe, then we have to analyze a made up scenario and decide what sort of problem the patient has and what types of interventions we would do to solve the problem.  Wednesday is the final.  I will be drinking Wednesday night, so if I start drunk tweeting, forgive me.  ; )


  1. What a great color on you and I LOVE the necklace!

  2. I would not blame you. I almost cried reading it!

  3. Lesa - Thank you! Purple is my favorite color, but I'm always a little funny about wearing it with my red hair. I guess I should stop worrying! : )

    Sarah R - Just got home from the short clinical shift, and on to the care plan now. I'll make it. I'm just trying to remember that some of my classmates have kids, so they are even more stretched for time and energy! I don't know how they do it! Thanks for the empathy, though. : )

  4. That colour looks wonderful on you. Love it with the leopard, too.

  5. I love the pink with the leopard print. If I ever get my hands on some cute animal print shoes I'm going to use this as inspiration :)

    Good luck with your final!

  6. You certainly have a lot going on! I couldn't imagine being that busy.

    Love that dress. Purple and brown is such a great combo, I'll have to try it out sometime.

  7. Hey you look great that is an amazing colour on you. Good luck with your quiz and other work commitments I'm sure you'll do well!

  8. Love the denim with that dress! Great color dress also. Best of luck with your exams and clinical shifts. It will all be over soon and you will be having that ever so deserved drink very sooooon!!

  9. Luv that necklace. Good luck on your studies!
