I’ve been waiting for a site-wide sale at J. Crew for a while… basically since the Sloan flats came out (love shoes!!)! It finally came, and at 30% off, which is about as good as it gets for sale on full price stuff. I had to grab the Suede Sloan flats to try. I got them in the neutral color and the burgundy. I was going to grab the raspberry glitter ones, which Ben was actually a fan of, but I decided to hold off because I was planning on trying the Gemma glitter flat instead. Since I was placing an order anyway, I decided to add on a few work shirts. Previous years flannel dot shirts were kind of crappy quality. I don’t know why I’m trying again, but I am. Such hope! I also grabbed a summer weight plaid shirt because the reviews were excellent (and promise its not shear!), long cotton-linen shirt in navy because I love that fabric combo, and a light blue short sleeve popover (even though its back-ordered). Super excited about them all!! Maybe something will actually work out!
I’m back on a consult service! Meaning its time to wear real clothes again. I thought I was going to enjoy dressing up… I couldn’t have been more wrong. As weird as it sounds, I’m having a hard time getting dressed. I’ve given so many clothes away because I hadn’t worn them (because I never get dressed…). And now my wardrobe is running on the sparse side. Thank goodness my ugly outfits can be covered up by my (off-) white coat.
This ICU block is finally coming to an end. Only two more days (*deep breath*). I couldn’t be more ready for it to be over. Its been physically demanding and emotionally draining. The later is the harder part. So much grief, denial, anger, relief… there’s a limit to how much emotion I can handle!
I usually do a fair amount of online shopping during my scrubs-only months so I have some fun new things to wear when I get to dress up again. I haven’t had much time to browse, but I did grab a few fun items! I’ve been loving Tory Burch patterns recently, like this geometric tunic or this floral top. No way can I afford those at anywhere close to retail price, unfortunately. But, like I always say, summer is a great time for finding deals on eBay! I picked up a Tory Burch silk shirt, Tory Burch cashmere tunic and a Red Valentino gingham cardigan (similar to this one) for about $100 total. Not bad! I’m sure they’ll show up on the blog soon. I also grabbed some shoes from Nordstrom’s sale, but they’re not at all comfy and already on their way back.
Alright. Time to go to bed so I can make it through the next two days without completely losing my last bits of sanity. *Deep breaths.* Only two more days.
Oh yeah, its Friday. I hope you have a good weekend!
