I have worn raincoats, pea coats, sport coats, over coats, all types of coats and jackets that you can probably think of….but none mean as much, and cost as much (Sallie Mae is no joke) , than the white coat I earned recently. This past weekend I finally graduated with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Since starting this blog over a year ago I have been a graduate student balancing study time, networking, assignments, posts, and somewhat of a social life. It has definitely been a long but rewarding journey, and it’s only fitting that I have a style post on graduation day.
Being a student most of my life taught me how to be able to put an outfit together and remain cost conscious. This is a valuable skill that I know will come in handy for quite some time. When trying to decide what I would wear for my big day I went looking around the DMV. I finally decided to go with Zara’s Basic Slim fit fashion suit (I love this fit, and with the help of my tailor it felt like a glove). At $160 I was pretty excited about the deal and fit. Note if you are not a fan of the really tapered trousers you will most likely not be a fan.
I wanted to bring out all the stops so I went with a French cuff shirt, vintage cuff links passed down from my dad, and black striped vest. Apparently I’m still playing around with the navy blue and black theme in a lot of my outfits recently.
Thank you to everyone for your love and support. I am now preparing to take my board examination so my apologies in advance if I am missing in action for a little while. However once I’m done (and pass with flying colors, pray for me) expect a lot of new surprises from The DDD! I can’t wait to roll them out and show the new vision and direction. Until then make an impression. Dress well….
