Welcome to volume one of #chicallweek, where I will be sharing my work outfits of the week (via iPhone) and any style tips for girls working in a sporty/ casual/ clinical environment. The first post will be more of an introduction to the series, but I will share a stockpile of pictures that have been building up on my phone while we're here.
On my first day in PT school, I was introduced to a maroon and gold polo we would be required to wear for site visits and our class picture. It was the first polo shirt back into my closet since Hollister made them cool in high school, and I wasn't thrilled about it coming back. Khaki's and polos were my least favorite style, and for whatever reason, this is what I envision when I think of a Physical Therapist.
When I first started my blog only a few weeks later, I wanted to eventually share my feminine style and how I incorporate into the Physical Therapy environment. Of course, you don't have to be a PT exactly to take inspiration from it, but I will talk about reasons I specifically love it for my job.
I've started sharing my work outfits on Instagram stories, and I've had girls reach out to me about doing a post and to keep sharing them because they're currently in PT or OT school or are new graduates. Being a PT, you need to wear clothing that allows you to move and demonstrate exercises, but most work environments require you to look casual or even dressier / business casual. I had a clinical that required the guys to wear ties and girls to wear slacks. I'm glad my work environment can lean either way. Some days I wear Nikes and a ponytail, and other days I decide to curl my hair and wear a blouse. It's definitely right up my alley to get the best of both worlds!
