Oh, small town life. This morning I was more than a little surprised to see a large picture of my face in the local newspaper along with an article about my medical school's rural medicine track and a little blurb about me working here for the next two months. It's so funny what little towns fill their paper with (and also pretty funny that I had no idea that they were running the story). There is definitely no way to be anonymous here (or probably in any small town). I'm loving it though; every day in the clinic is different from the last and I feel privileged to get a glimpse into the patients' lives along with some of the struggles that go with living in a small town: economic hardships for many families and a definite shortage of physicians/health care.
I don't think that work clothes have to be boring, and hence my slowly growing collection of colorful pencil skirts. The camel polka dot sweater was sort of an unintentional pairing with the bright blue skirt, but I think it works. This sweater is the J. Crew Factory version of the regular store version last year, and I snagged it the minute that it went on sale + 30% off (I loved it last year but it was too pricey). It's a fun neutral and a light linen knit that's perfect for spring.
