I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Today our a cappella group had a performance for some influential individuals of the med center, so I put together this ensemble with my white coat and black pumps. I layered my ivory cable knit sweater underneath to keep warm on the walk to campus - my white coat only shows a peep of the dress so as far as tops and sleeves go, you can be as wild as you want. After a pasta lunch though, this began to feel a little more frumpy and tight. To cozy up with some coffee at home, this pearl-studded white beret and red lips are perfect for a winter wonderland feel and prancing around in the snow. Au contraire, the weather outside was indeed frightful, drizzling in this relatively tepid rain nonstop. That didn't stop us from having a spontaneous girls' night at Cheesecake Factory after reading about how their system can teach us how to standardize and improve health care in surgeon/storyteller extraordinaire Atul Gawande's New Yorker article. Food for thought leads to thinking about food! By the way, their Fresh Banana cheesecake is heavenly - light, frothy, a perfect dessert.

It takes years to develop a sense of personal style, and that's still an ever-changing one. Being a style blogger makes that hard with trends and staying relevant, wandering around boutiques and malls for the sake of doing your research, sponsored pieces to incorporate. After brewing many sartorial concoctions, it seems like my life outfit is not complete without a pancake atop my head (one of 2 H&M new additions to my collection). Back to my true francophile roots - beret, flared dresses, streamlined black bottoms all the way down to my hallex (fancy Latin word for big toe). This forecast for this weekend is plenty of studying, since finals for the muscle & bone block are coming up and it's time to get down to business. Looking forward to a holiday potluck dinner tomorrow with good eats and jingling along with Christmas tunes. Best of luck on your exams/work and break is almost here!

WOW I love this one! I couldn't figure out whether it was a sweater with a skirt or a dress, but apparantly it's a dress with a sweater, very clever! Very gorgeous, girl :)

I've been obsessed with wearing white and black for the holidays! i love this outfit with the red lipstick. I would argue it is perfection in my book. My new year's resolution is to be able to comment more on blogs that I truly enjoy reading and browsing. You are on the top of my list hon.

Why so adorable Angie?!
You honestly look just like an adorable little doll! The cozy knit and lace skirt combine for a delicate yet warm look while the white color scheme is just so right for this time of year. Your little black bow belt adds a nice touch of cute whimsiness while the black on the bottom keeps things simple. A fluffy beret and a dash of red are just the icing on top of this cupcake of adorableness!

I was lucky enough to enjoy a white Christmas so I hope you were too!
Merry *belated* Christmas and happy *early* New Year! <3
