WIWS: Linen striped skirt + espadrilles

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I have a week off before my next rotation and you can tell I'm on vaca because I painted my toes and fingers (rare occurrence) with this bright, lovely shade. Stephen is also off for the week; he works 7 shifts on/7 off and his week off happened to coincide with mine. We are beyond thrilled to have a week off together after not seeing each other much this past month between his shift switch back to nights and me being away for my rural rotation. We are going on a little two night getaway to Niagara Falls tomorrow (Stephen's first time ever seeing the falls!) and I can't wait.

 These last few days have been full of good news: I found out on Friday that I passed the exam that I took down in Lansing a few weeks ago (thanks for the prayers!) and that I was nominated for the medical school honor society. I also found a suit for residency interviews this weekend: after trying on suit after suit this past month with no luck, I literally walked into Ann Taylor and tried the only black suit in my size that was in the store which also happened to be on the clearance rack. It fit perfectly (seriously, how often does that happen) and was 30% off the clearance price + another 20% off for showing my student I.D. I'm so glad the search is over.

Top and necklace: Loft
Stripe linen skirt: J. Crew Factory
Espadrilles: Lands End

We are visiting Stephen's parents this weekend and it's 20 degrees warmer than it is up north, which gave me the opportunity to finally wear the skirt that I found during the 50% off J. Crew Factory sale. I paired it with these espadrilles (thanks Shannon for telling me about them!) for mass. Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple for WIWS and with Plane Pretty. And since tomorrow is supposedly the last day of Google Friend Connect, follow me here on Bloglovin if you wish!

Last but not least, Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister!


  1. Stripes that are going the right way - up and down! I like it and it makes every woman look slimmer. As for the espadrilles...they just scream summer. Happy Sunday!!

  2. Yay, Erika, with the espadrille wedges!!! :) I love the nude color, even though I got the navy with white polka dots. I have hardly worn mine yet, though, isn't that a shame?! First it was cold/rainy constantly in May and the first part of June, and now that it's warm I just haven't had the chance because I spend my days with my children at the playground, pool, supermarket, etc.! So...maybe they're not so practical for my life?! But I love them and I wanted them for occasional things like dates with my husband, the rare weekend lunch or coffee with friends, and book club. :) Yours look great with that outfit and I love the skirt too!

  3. Love your outfit, and I share your love of J Crew! Did you know it is 50% off at the Factory Store right now?? Please check out my blog when you get a chance! :)


  4. I'm obsessed with that skirt! I'm loving stripes, and they flatter you so well!

  5. Cute!!


  6. Love this outfit and yeah for Vacation!!! I had a few days off, not long enough, but it's a start. Congrats on finding a suit and for being nominated :) Enjoy the rest of your holiday.



  7. Espadrilles never get old do they? So great for summer. A little bit of height but still comfy. Ann Taylor - such a staple for suits! Congrats on passing the exam :)

  8. It has been some time since I visited website with such high quality information On Linen Tops. Thank you so much for providing such helpful information. This is really informative and I will for sure refer my friends the same. Thanks.
