I recently attended a weekend professional development course (yep all weekend … yay, right), which technically means that today is my 10th consecutive day working without a day off 😩. Anyway, my course was all about the lumbar spine and pelvis, looking at assessment and treatment techniques (remember I’m a Physiotherapist), which involves practicals. In other words, you need to be wearing super comfortable and flexible clothing … and I prefer to also dress modestly.
Essentially you can’t wear jeans as they are too hard to palpate through and you can’t wear dresses because that just gets awkward. Even pants and shorts don’t really suit because it’s just too hard to assess clearly.
So that leaves tights, leggings or bike pants. It reminds me of my days as a Physio student at Uni. Ah the memories. The real dilemma I had was … how do I make this stylish?!
Stylish, practical and modest. This is what I came up with and I’m totally going to wear it again! The skirt was easy to remove for the practical components but meant I wasn’t running through the city in tights (yep I had to run to just catch my train).
What I’m Wearing:
I always struggle to find the specific links to what I have in my wardrobe because I am a Kmart, Target and Big W kind of girl. Plus my clothes seem to last quite a number of years!
- Top – Basic White Tee (Kmart)
- Jacket – Boyfriend Denium Jacket (Lee)
- Skirt – this one is a few years old from Big W
- Tights – Amy Full Length Tights (Lorna Jane)
- Shoes – mine were originally from Kmart, something similiar here
- Accessories – Pineapple print cup with straw (Kmart)
