Hey there, ATKM readers! My name is Steph and I am a Physician Assistant student! I will be graduating in June, but for the past year, I have been chronicling my daily outfits over at White Coat Wardrobe. I am living on a grad student-sized budget, but have big, bold style and a passion for professional fashion. In the medical world, bright colors and pattern mixing are often unexpected wardrobe choices. I believe that you can be modest and professional without compromising personal style! Today, I am sharing with you one of my FAVORITE fashion trends: chambray!

For work, I tend to grab my chambray dress and layer it with a bright or bold button down, slip into some polished wedges, and pile on some fun accessories. My other favorite work pairing is a darker wash chambray shirt, paired with a pencil skirt or pixie pant and a statement necklace or scarf. Does your work environment/dress code allow for chambray to be worn? How do you wear chambray to work?
2. DATE NIGHT
Watch | Monogram Bracelet | Twist Bracelet (similar) | Nails
My weeks are filled with charting, busy clinic days, quizzes, and studying for boards. When the weekend comes, I love to put by work aside and enjoy a date night with my fiance, Adam! I use this time as an excuse to curl my hair, put on some statement earrings, and enjoy the time off. For this date night look, I paired my favorite faded chambray shirt with a neon skirt and a petal pink cheek for a soft, romantic feel. A simple "arm party" and metallic flats allow the skirt and earrings to take the spotlight!

Ahh, the weekend! It's my time to catch up on the "to do's" that I don't complete during the week! For a trip to the grocery and bank, I choose comfy but polished layers like these! Ladies, if you do not own a pair of thick, ponte leggings, do yourself a favor and GET SOME! I am a huge fan of the comfort level and basic palette that leggings provide for an outfit, but they look a lot nicer when the fabric is opaque! ;) In addition, the heavier weight tends to contour and shape more than a simple cotton spandex blend will do. READ: Shapewear that looks like clothing! I'll throw my chambray shirt over a tunic-length tee, add a bright scarf and fun shoes, and I'm ready to roll.
