Lace + small town medicine

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Yesterday was a crazy/good day. I got to help bring two new babies into the world (my favorite) in between seeing patients in the clinic, rounding on our two hospital patients, and taking care of a newborn. I'm getting sold on this small town doctor thing...unfortunately Stephen is still a city boy to the core (working on him).

This lace top is one of my favorites. I wore it to work with dress pants but it transitioned easily to dinner out (Stephen came to visit last night). 

Lace top: J. Crew Factory (old), Loft version
Purse: T.J. Maxx
Shoes: Clarks ballet flats (most comfy/cute work shoes ever)

How I wore it last:


  1. I didn't know you'd done deliveries, that's amazing! I love that shirt--I tried on the hot pink one at Factory, but decided to come back when it was on sale. Alas, only a few were left, and none in my size...happily though, I saw a similar style just recently at Target and might have to get my hands on it!

  2. Great top and so versatile. Yeah to delivering babies. I love it!!!!! I love seeing them born, it truly is a miracle!!!

  9. Hi Ericka! I'm so glad that you can find time during crazy medschool to have a little bit of fun with fashion :) I wish I did more of that back in the day.

I love the lace top!! Yes, I agree, clarks are the MOST comfortable shoes ever!

  10. Love both ways you styled it, but the casual way is just so easy and fresh. Looks great! I worked in L&D one summer and love love loved helping with new moms and babies so much I almost went to nursing school...until I passed out in the bathroom after assisting with a circumcision. The medical world is not for me. Thanks for linking up!

  11. I adore lace, I would like to get more of it. I have some fun lace vests! Sounds like my outfit for tomorrow. :) Did I ever tell you I used to be an RN.. different than a Dr. but hey.. medical fields my friend. Nearing 8 years later that ship has sailed for me. S
