Sit Down Style Session #3...

Lauren and I are excited to present you with this month’s Sit-Down Style Session featured blogger: Steph from White Coat Wardrobe. Steph has such a great blog. She is incredibly stylish, classy and such a sweet lady. Without further ado here she is...

1. Describe your style in 3 words
Classic, modest, colorful

2. Why did you start blogging?
My mom is a costume designer, so I grew up with a love of textiles, and that eventually grew into a love of fashion and outfit planning. I am now a Physician Assistant student, which keeps me very busy and scientifically-minded most of my time.  I craved a creative outlet and a way for me to chronicle my work outfits and be inspired by other bloggers!

3. What do you like most about blogging and what are your goals for the future?
I LOVE the relationships that I have built from blogging! The women I have met are so supportive and so stylish, and everyone has been so kind! Each day, my fellow bloggers inspire me to remix what I already have in my wardrobe, and to expand my personal style. Blog-wise, my goals for the future include growing my readership and challenging myself to post more often. Career-wise, my goal is to graduate in June 2014 and pass my boards next summer!! :)

4. Pick 3 favorite outfits and describe why they are your favorites.


Mint Stripes + Cobalt: This is the very first outfit I posted on my blog. I wore it to the first day of orientation for my clinical was a color combination that I just threw together at the last minute! The mint and the cobalt inspired my entire blog design, and this outfit incorporates a few of my favorite things: stripes, a pencil skirt, bow flats, and a statement necklace! Top + Pencil Skirt + Statement Neckace = my go-to work outfit when I am feeling uninspired!

Lace + Plaid: I have been experimenting with layering a lot lately, and this is another "happy accident", where I combined plaid and lace and it gelled quite nicely! I love the boyish quality of the plaid, and that the feminine the lace adds a feminine touch. This is another example of what I'm currently wearing to work!

Jeans + Polka Dots + Vest: I love to print mix, and this is what I call "the trifecta of print mixing"! Polka dots, leopard, and the infamous herringbone vest! This vest was such a good investment...I had my eye on it last year at J.Crew, and was able to nab it using part of my winter clothing budget and lots of coupon stacking. The price-per-wear has to be pennies by now! I grab for it pretty much every day (weather permitting haha), and it looks great with both work and weekend wardrobe picks!
5. When not blogging, what do you like to do?
PA school keeps me super busy!! "Free time" outside of school right now consists of spending time with friends, blogging, laundry and cooking (so glamorous, right?!).

6. You can only shop at one store for the rest of your life…Where would it be?
ONE STORE?! Haha, oh man! Probably Target. Ideally, it would be J.Crew but I am trying to be more budget-conscious. Targets brands have been doing a great job of keeping up with their pricer competitors, and I love a good bargain!! Plus, Target also has snacks and other stuff... ;)

Thanks so much, Steph! Be sure to stop by Steph's blog for more of this lovely lady and her fantastic style!!
