Dress-Old Navy/Denim shirt-Gap/Sandals-Sam & Libby Target/Backpack-Herschel via Madewell
This is kind of overdressed for school, but I knew the morning would be spent in a lecture with the afternoon practicing getting vital stats...the tank dress worked well for wearing the blood pressure cuff! The lab room, where I spend at least 3 hours per day is hot. Plus, I spend a good portion of it bent over a bed or running around. The rest of the time I am in a lecture room furiously taking notes. Shorts and a t-shirt are just a necessity. Also, jewelry is a liability...taking gloves on and off and washing hands double digit times per day make it a pain to wear rings and bracelets, plus large necklaces just seen to get in the way when helping patients out of bed. So, small earrings and necklaces will be worn ton this summer. The home that I will be working in, beginning next Friday, insists that we only wear stud earrings, no other jewelry and naked nails. So add insult to injury, I am restricted to white leather shoes, maroon scrubs and a blue smock.
I still plan to show my style through funky sandals and patterned shorts for the classroom.
Since I have to carry a 700 page text book, lab book, notebook, tons of papers and a lunch, I needed a sturdy backpack to lug all my stuff around. This Herschel backpack is wonderful. I bought this one at Madewell on sale, but they are sold in all colors all over the internet...I highly recommend the brand I never thought I would enjoy carrying a backpack...but I totally do now!!
Off to study the cardiovascular system...ahhh!!
