At long last: a new outfit post! So maybe med school is as time-consuming as everyone says it is ... the great news is for every outfit I've worn since school began, I've taken pictures and they're all nice and cozy on my SD card. But after all the additionally lectures we're required to learn each day outside of class, I have -5 hours of free time, which ends up stuffed in my piggy bank as rain checks for "sleep, what is sleep?" Moral of the story is: time management is everything and life just started fast forwarding at 3x speed. Second moral: dressing cute is the one thing stringing my sanity together. This is what I wore for running around during the undergraduate activities fair (hot summer weather), ziplining on my lunch break (yup, always in style), and meeting the dental students who are our partners for anatomy dissection. Business ultra-casual? The skirt was a $7 on-sale thingeemajigger that I grabbed before my China trip and the best thing is it has pockets; the second best thing is the pleated flap covers more leg when you sit down.

In the past 2 weeks I have learned how to perform CPR, place EKG leads, how to take a patient history, the clinical side of sickle cell anemia, and lots more. Between all this I finally settled into my apartment and got internet, drove to Pittsburgh for the weekend to visit JJ (he's starting grad school), ate my weight in free food. This is an exhilarating change of pace, because I'm finally learning all the things I wanted to since the beginning of college and we get hands-on clinical experience very early on. Also, at least twice a week I have to dress professionally, so time to start crash-coursing petite friendly outfits for young-people-forever-stuck-in-and-pencil-skirts-and-pantsuits. It's so strange having to wear pencil skirts instead of for whimsical I-feel-fancy-schmancy days.

More random thoughts uncategorizable for paragraph form:
1. There are so many undergrads everywhere (50,000 to be exact-ish?)
2. IKEA is heaven on Earth. Confirmed by scientific studies. Their Swedish meatballs are also food of the gods. Also confirmed by science. Okay maybe not ... still. LINGONBERRIES
3. Being an "adult" is soooo weird. Not sure if I like it. Can I return after 30 days?

Thank you Underrated Gems for featuring me alongside Youtube fashion and beauty gurus. I'm beyond flattered - check it out! Good luck to everyone going back to school - snap a pic and show me your outfits!

Angie, you look so chic and grown-up in this outfit!! It's so pretty. :)
And ahh, medical school is so intense. I'm kind of scared for friends to go and then to never hear from them again. :\ and ooh, I know how to do the CPR and patient history!! Only because of my training as an EMT-B, though, so probably not as detailed as what you had to go through.
Have a lovely rest of the week!

I'm not a big fan of the paisley print but you pull it of really well :D
I am in love with your top though! Love sheer tops because they're so feminine!

That's really exciting to hear about what you've been learning especially that it's already so hands-on! It sounds like you're definitely loving it even if you have to take rain checks on sleep (WORTH IT.) The print on this skirt is adorable, I love that it's in bright neon-like colours to contrast with the paisley design. You look happy– and I'm looking forward to hearing more about your studies xx

Cute top!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Always fun to meet fellow Columbus-ites :) If you worked with OSU med students (I'm guessing you're OSU, by your post details), then you might have met my friend Stephanie. She's in the school's dental program and she's starting the anatomy stuff this year, too.

Anyway, I love this outfit! Paisley and sheer are two styles I tend to shy away from, but you make them look so effortless and amazing!
