What I Wore

It's midweek and it's time to share what I wore. I agree with Lindsey: she says: I was motivated to put a little extra time into myself. and the result? i feel much better about myself! i have become more confident in my style and enjoy taking little risks and trying new things!

When I am cold and depressed especially during inpatient months -- I definitely wear an outfit that reflects my fun side. I also started wearing bright red lipstick back in the winter. Again, result: maybe I look more mature??? and maybe I look more my age instead of 16 and pregnant? and yes, it spices up my work day! And best of all, hubs like it.

Let me share a story: I was a third year medical student. It was my first clinical rotation after 2 years of hanging out with medical books. I had this weird, not-so-true notion that I should wear black pants and buttoned down shirts if I am in the hospital. So that's what I did. It was not fun! I was sad and depressed. (well, it's not mostly because of my outfits that dragged me down -- there are other stuff etc) but dressing up for work did not help my mood during those first weeks of clinical duties. I wore black pants, boring... and shirts/sweaters without any jewelry, again boring.

I realized my mistake and started wearing my favorite clothes that are appropriate for work. I saw a difference in my attitude and mood. I dress up for my continuity clinics too. Thurs mornings are my days to wear my favorite skirt, dress or necklace. The other days are also fun but I feel like I should be presentable to my patients. (Continuity clinics are mandated during residency. We are still under a staff physician and he/she supervises us but patients in our continuity clinics are OUR patients. The patients and their parents know ME as their primary neurologist).

Outfit 1:
Motherhood Maternity top, very feminine with sequins and beads and flowers.
I added my pearl necklace seen here.
My Colts blue skirt is from Old Navy Maternity.
This pair of Bandolino peep-toes are also fun.

Outfit 2:
This top is from Motherhood Maternity. Also worn here.
I paired it with my chunky turqouise necklace from zulily.

    After spending lots of time in the hospital, I can say that is brightens your patients' days when you dress fun. Also, I love love love that necklace!

    We will be in clinics on a Thursday morning next month- hopefully we see a beautifully dressed pregnant mama there ;)
