I am here to report that I survived my first day of clinicals… woohoo!! I apologize for my absence in the blog world yesterday but this weekend was a busy busy time. I packed up my things (again) and headed back to Charlotte to start my urgent care rotation! Did I mention how freakin excited I am to be back?!?! Yesterday was a long but exciting day (I worked from 8am – 8:30pm, that’s gonna take some getting used to). But what’s nice about these 12 hour shifts is that I have more days off… like today & tomorrow- yay! I will take this time to catch up on my favorite blogs, hang out with friends, relax, go on fun date nights, and study some medicine of course.
Let me just say that this year is my last time going back to school… ever!! I probably said this senior year of college, but deep down I hoped that I would get into PA school. Back to school used to mean a new pair of tennis shoes in elementary school and an awesome first-day outfit in high school. You know what I’m talking about. These “must have” outfits were most likely from Abercrombie or Hollister and I cringe when I think about the smell of those stores… eeek! Now that we’re all grown up, it’s all about cute paper goods and coffee mugs. Oh how things change. Here are some of my favorite back to school essentials:
[Glasses] So you want to look more studious? I like to switch up my look sometimes with a pair of glasses and have been eyeing these pairs from Warby Parker. The coolest thing is that they will send you 5 pairs of glasses (for free) to try on at home so you can decide which one is best. Did I mention they’re also super affordable?
[Planners] It’s not officially “back to school” without one of these. My favorites are the Kate Spade agenda, May Books, and of course the bright & colorful Lilly Pulitzer planner (complete with fun stickers!).
[Coffee Mugs] How else would you sit through 7 hours of class? Travel mugs are a must- love this striped one and Shop Dandy has tons of mugs with sassy little quotes!
[iPhone Case] I like to frequently change up my cases and this Tory Burch case could definitely fuel my tortoise obsession. Love this Kate Spade “Play Hooky” case too!
[Desk Accessories] I’m not gonna lie, I frequently get desk envy when I see other bloggers’ cute workplaces. You can snazz up you desk with some monogrammed acrylic accessories, like this letter sorter (it can also be used to organize your clutches!). And y’all know I love snail mail– what’s not to love about pink and gold dots from Kate Spade?
“Back to school” doesn’t only mean fun new school supplies. It’s basically code for… IT’S ALMOST FALL! I’m loving every single one of these pieces because they make for a polished look, full of fall colors and textures. Although I’m trading in my “school” clothes for scrubs during my first two rotations, I can say that pencil skirts and a cute blouse are key when you want to look cute and professional.
Now on to the most exciting part of this post- the giveaway of course!! I’m teaming up with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you your new favorite fall accessory- the Tory Burch Amanda Crossbody! Let’s be honest… who doesn’t love some Tory?? Whether you’re tailgating or doing some hands-free shopping, this bag is a great piece to add to your fall wardrobe. The giveaway will run through 6pm EST on Friday so good luck & thanks for reading!
