The best part of any outfit is what you put with it. Today’s Friday Favorites are brought to you by accessories! Even though I work with kids (some that are very little), I still like to look professional in my scrubs. Scrubs can make me look frumpy and careless. Put a pair of scrubs with a cute graphic tee and earrings, maybe a bracelet or two and BOOM…you look cute! The accessories I chose are very much “job approved.” I have worn each and every one of them while working with a rambunctious 2 year old!
Accessory #1: Nickel and Suede
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I LOVE Nickel and Suede leather earrings! My goal is to have a pair in every color so that I can wear them everyday. (My goal is a true goal- The SLP will purchase a set of earrings from Nickel and Suede each week until she has purchased all pairs listed on their website.) I order the small size but you can choose from small, medium and large. They are lightweight. I honestly forget that I have them on most days. The best part about these earrings is they add instant and style to your outfit, without even trying hard.
Accessory #2: Ermish Bracelets
In order for me to like a bracelet, it has to make it through one of my busiest days without annoying me. If I take it off midday because it got on my nerves, then I probably won’t ever wear it again. It cannot be loose or have a clasp. That’s why Erimish bracelets have become a favorite! You can wear single bracelets but they look the best stacked! They are not cheap by any means but I also do not get the big bulky bracelets. I buy the smaller ones and only wear about 3-4 maximum. They don’t interfere with therapy and are seldom a distraction. (However, we all know if a little one wants to get out of working, they’ll find a distraction!) You can also find necklaces and other accessories!
Accessory #3: Kinsley Armelle
This is a newer discovery on social media. I LOVE my Kinlsey Armelle bangle! This company is based in Texas so of course, it had to go on my list!! (I love my Texas shops!!!) I recently purchased a bangle in blush. BEAUTIFUL! While it does fit loose, it stays on my wrist and does not interfere with therapy. I wear it a lot! I will usually pair it with some Erimish bracelets. You can also find earrings and necklaces on this site. Another impressive thing about Kinsley Armelle is the fast shipping!!! I think it took 2 days from the time I ordered until the time is was on my arm!
Accessory #4: Kimonos & Cardigans
Since it is summer time while I write this, I am going to talk more about kimonos. I have a couple of bright colored ones that I will wear with scrub pants and a graphic tee. Of course, if you pair it with jeans or a skirt, it looks great too. Kimonos are great for dressing up a fun tee. Add a little bling (like the 3 above), some cute shoes and you are ready with little to no effort! Kimonos like this one add some great color to a simple outfit. Once the weather starts to cool off, I go to be my “collection” of cardigans. ( I am planning on entire post on that in the fall!)
Accessory #5: Converse
No, I’m not sponsored by Converse. But I do love their shoes! I won’t say I have a pair in every color, but I have quite a few pairs (There is a reason the shoe has already been part of my logo!) A graphic tee, light sweater, couple of cute accessories and your converse…you have a cute comfy outfit without even trying. It’s like you can’t go wrong! Plus, these shoes go with EVERYTHING! Scrub pants, shorts, pants, capris, wedding dresses…the list goes on and on. I just designed a pair on their website. I am counting down the days until they get here. I may very well take off work the day of scheduled delivery so that I can accept them personally from Mr. Delivery Man. (Actually, no I won’t do that!)
So there you have it. Another Friday Favs with Speech Chick! I did not add purses or other bags because I was aiming for this to be about what you could wear to work whether you wear dress clothes or scrubs. I added links to find everything. There are no sponsors so anything you buy goes directly to the company. I just really love these accessories and wanted to share with you!
