Medical Mondays – Uniforms Edition


Being a nurse means being limited in what I can wear to work (or at least in my case it does).  I work for an office that requires scrubs in only a few select colors.  I have 3 pairs that I try to mix and match to have different looks but sometimes it gets a little boring.  One nice thing about my uniform is the ability to wear any shoes I want or any hair accessories to jazz up my day.  I love bright headbands but otherwise trying to figure out what to wear is pretty simple.  My newest uniform is black with a little bit of pink accent but the important part of this one was fit.

Scrub TopThe mock wrap gives it a fitted feel instead of a big, bulky scrub top, which is no fun to wear at all.  I was able to buy the matching pants and my amazing mother-in-law transformed them in to a skirt.  Scrub skirts online are TERRIBLE.  They are odd lengths and ill-fitting.  It’s so much easier to find a pair of pants I like and then she works her magic so I have a skirt just the right fit and length for me.  Definitely no complaints there.

I love shoes.  I always have and I always will.  When I’m on my feet for a lot of the day though comfort tends to be much more important than it had been previously.  I have been lucky enough to have been given an amazingly cute pair of Dansko’s from a friend and co-worker (in exchange she got a WONDERFUL bag of Starbucks coffee – he he).


I also purchased a pair of Dansko’s so that I could rotate them and not wear them out as quickly as with just having the one pair.  That same friend and co-worker found these and I just had to have them for myself.

ShoesThese are both cute but also SO very comfortable to wear.  At the end of a 8-10 hour day my feet aren’t killing me and I’m not ready to rip them off from discomfort.  I think that says a LOT.

So as a nurse, while I may have limits in the uniform department, it is still fun to find ways to show my style and have fun with it.


About Brandy

I'm a wife to my amazingly talented writer husband, Gabe, and a mom of two, Aiden and Olivia. In my free time (ha!) I'm a registered nurse. More importantly than the rest, I am part of an Apostolic Pentecost church and am currently a Sunday School teacher. I care deeply about my service for the Lord and part of that is being a modest woman. Modesty isn't just part of my religion, it's my life and how I live every day, but being modest doesn't mean having no fashion or fun. And that's what I want to show you here. I hope you come along for the ride.

  1. OMG! They really do make fitted scrub tops! I always watched Grey’s Anatomy and laughed at the fitted scrubs… thinking- “yeah, right!”
    Great seeing you on the Medical Monday grid! Thanks for linking up with us!

    • Ha! Yep, they sure do. Actually there is a line of Grey’s Anatomy scrubs that I see a lot of people wear. I can’t do quite that form fitted because I’m more than amply blessed in the chest dept but I definitely prefer fitted to unisex sacks. 🙂
