What I Wore Wednesday

Wednesday, February 20, 2013




Oh, Wednesday. I'm fighting a cold that I can pinpoint to one little munchkin who let out a huge cough/sneeze when I was listening to his lungs the other day (you'd think I would have learned after 6 weeks of pediatrics to avoid standing in the direct line of fire during an exam). We are also completely buried right now after the-snowstorm-to-end-all-snowstorms hit yesterday. Everything was closed except for the hospital and our clinic. I was extremely fortunate and did not get paged last night while I was on call since I was dreading making my way to the hospital in the middle of the blizzard.

Stephen luckily snapped a few outfit pics before the crazy storm hit. I did things a little differently this week and took some insta pics of my other outfits. Not the best quality, but it was extra motivation to get dressed in the a.m.! I noticed an unintentional theme this week of simple + a little pop of color.

Weekend casual: grey + cream polka dots

Polka dot sweatshirt and skinny high risers: Madewell/boots: Hunter

Manic Monday: green dots + leopard for work

Chiffon dot top: J. Crew/trousers: Gap outlet from forever ago/leopard flats: J. Crew on super sale
Work #2: Black/White + a pop of coral

Polka dot ponte dress: J. Crew (last worn here)/Button-up, tights, wedges: Target/Necklace: J. Crew Outlet

After work: Colored jeans + a cozy sweater
Jeans: J. Crew Factory/Sweater: Forever 21/Skimmers: Madewell


Joining The Pleated Poppy, Shanna, Alison, and Rolled Up Pretty on this lovely Wednesday.

    1. Thanks Lindsey! So far my Hunters have worked great for snow, esp. slushy melty snow (I'll be wearing them tons in the spring!)

    1. Thanks, Sherry! I think that the Hunter boots are totally worth it because they are so comfy and versatile. And that sweater from Forever 21 was a great find!

  9. Lovely as always, Erika! How do you like your Madewell high rise skinnies? What's the fit like?

    1. Thanks so much, Laura. The Madewell skinny high risers are amazing. They are pricey, but I think that they are worth it because of the fit (and I'm a believer in having just a few pairs of great-fitting jeans that I can wear until they are worn and hole-y). Madewell does have 20% sales sometimes too. Anyways, the selling points for me were the high rise (a couple inches below the belly button), and way they look in the back/pockets (extremely flattering). These are a 30 and I think that they run true to size, I am normally a 29 (size 8) or 30 (10), and I always get a 30 in skinny jeans/slim fitting pants since I don't like them skin tight :)

  10. Love the new design, so pretty! Looking to change mine up soon...who did yours?

  11. Hi Erika,

    Thank yo so much for commenting on my blog so I now have found yours. As you know, I'm starting med school this year and I'm actually really nervous about what I'm supposed to wear, so I'm really glad that I have a person I can look to to see what they wear in similar situations. Especially since the clothes I will be purchasing for the first two years should work for the two years in rotations, I'm excited to see what you wear so I know what's appropriate!

    Anyway, I'm really excited to follow along. Your style is adorable.
