Fall uniform

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

This is my third straight month in scrubs: August was OB/GYN and last month and this month are both ER. While they're comfy and it makes dressing in the morning a lot easier/quicker, I'm desperately missing wearing 'normal' clothes during my favorite time of year, fall.

I've found myself gravitating towards neutrals of late. This cargo jacket was an investment purchase even on sale, but it's the perfect fall piece. Adding a scarf makes it a little more girly. And the boots? I found them on Amazon Warehouse late spring, supposedly defective for $50 but I couldn't find any defects when I got them in the mail. Desiree started my obsession with them.

I'm headed to the ER tonight and I have to admit that switching shifts every day along with working mostly evening/late night shifts is really starting to wear on me. I'm definitely ready for some time off next month for residency interviews. 

Jacket: J. Crew

  7. You look so cute, Erika! I haven't even had a chance yet to wear the J. Crew Factory version of the Pixies that I bought last spring b/c it's been way too warm here! (I know--in MN--crazy! We've had a summery fall so far and I LOVE it. ) You look so cute in them.

  8. I'm all about neutrals right now too - and you cannot go wrong with a cargo jacket! Goes with everything and is especially nice with these great boots... (And at least you've had less laundry to do, right? Perhaps the one upside of scrubs.)
