Friday Faves

Friday Four: October 11th

Happy Friday! It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged and even longer since I’ve done a Friday Four so this is long overdue but better late than never. It’s been such a crazy semester but I’m really enjoying all of my classes this year, as challenging as they are we’ve moved beyond the foundational knowledge and have stepping into synthesizing all of that information and applying it to real people which has been a huge mix of exciting and scary.

Now that I’ve settled back into my routine I’m trying to spend more time getting back into what I love, with a focus on reading and blogging since it’s been nearly a month since I’ve done either! One thing I have been doing a lot of this year is meditation and I will definitely be sharing some of that on the blog as well. Here are some ideas I have for upcoming posts but let me know what else you’d like to see:

  • How to look professional and stylish
  • Fall fashion
  • My favorite smoothie recipes
  • Mason jar lunches
  • How to vibrate higher with meditation (and crystals!)
  • How to use palo santo to keep the good vibes flowing

Here’s to getting some R&R this weekend!

Weekly Style 18

In two weeks I will be finishing up my orientation for physical therapy school! I’m so excited to start this next chapter of school! One of the requirements for my program is that for certain classes we have to dress professionally to prepare ourselves to be in the working world. As someone that isn’t so fond of khakis I need to get creative… quickly.

All that being said, today’s post is going to be all about business casual clothing from Banana Republic Factory!

First up is the Ruffle Sleeve Top:

I absolutely love the color and the sleeves! The perfect thing about this top is that the sleeves mean you aren’t required to throw a cardigan or blazer on over it!

Next is the Layered Tunic Top:

This top is such a cute color and it would look good with a black blazer and gold ballet flats. I haven’t tried this top on (yet!) but it also looks a little longer meaning it would pass my teacher’s “no belly no booty” rule. If you like this shirt but are looking for a different color it also comes in white and black!

Here’s another Layered Top:

I love light blue! I also love the neckline of this one. It also comes in pink, white, or blue. If you pick the blue it would look great with a statement necklace like this one from J. Crew Factory.

Then we have the Collarless Pleat Sleeve Blazer:

Now I’m not a blazer person but I will definitely be trying this on soon! I am obsessed with the sleeves and will be keeping you all updated!

Lastly we have the Texture Pop Color Academy Blazer:

So it seems like pink is the color of the day… But this is just so cute! If you picked out the black version or white versions of the shirts above they would look awesome with this!

That’s it for my intro to business casual but stay tuned for more to come!

Stay stylish!
