THROWBACK THURSDAY: Scrub Jumpsuit
I love jumpsuits. This is no surprise given how frequently I am seen in outfits where the tops are sewn to the bottoms (jumpsuits, rompers, playsuits... I love all of them). As an aspiring physician, I also work in a clinic where I frequently wear scrubs. Another fun fact is that I normally always wear black but have been have some additional colors added to my rotation in the summer. One particular color that I love is light blue. It is elegant yet bright and cheerful. It also pairs well with all of my shoes and is not too loud or overstated.
These three things conspired against me when I donned a light blue 100 % cotton jumpsuit. I love it and I maintain after writing this post that I still love it. Either way, I decided to wear it to the Aquatennial fireworks last weekend because it is bright and blue like water (Aquatennial.. it made a lot of sense in my mind as an appropriate choice for the occasion).
I paired it with a navy and red colorful scarf so that it was a bit more dynamic and my silver Tiffany necklace and bracelet as a simple accessory. I also wore my navy Stuart Weitzman corkswoon wedges. Naturally, this was also paired with Prosecco because it is a celebration!
We went to dinner prior to the fireworks at one of my husband's favorite restaurants, Sea Change, because he used to work there and they have a space that overlooks the Mississippi River and the bridge where the fireworks were to be set off. When we walked in, one of the hosts asked my if I had just come from work because my jumpsuit kind of looks like scrubs. It is almost the same color as the scrubs that I wear at the University... but I thought well that makes sense for people that know me and know that I work in a clinic so... surely not everyone thinks it looks like scrubs ... and it is not like I sewed some of my scrubs together, added a waist tie and ruffled sleeves ...
Either way, I love the color of it and it is incredibly comfortable. I am wearing it today in the morning before I have to put on the scrubs that it very much so resembles but at least the people that I work with recognized that it has a ruffle and waist tie so it can't be scrubs right?
