The Fashionable SLP Strikes Again!

It’s time for another departure post.  Let’s talk fashion!

I live in the south and it stays pretty hot well into the fall, so I’m a dress kind of gal.  I get lots of compliments on my “dressy” styles, but, honestly a dress takes much less thought then a pants/shirt combo.

My current faves come from Anthroplogie.  Dresses there are typically under $140 (remember this is your entire outfit), are versatile and they have great sales.

I’m dying to try some of the new Mad Men collection at Banana Republic.  I love the show.  I really like the whole ad campaign.  The begonia print dress looks practical to me.  It’s not in the collection but the Blake wrap blouse looks perfect for work too.  I also like the Penny floral blouse.  I need to make time for a shopping expedition…

My favorite cardigans come from J. Crew.  It goes along with living in a warm climate that you will find yourself indoors freezing from the air conditioning on a regular basis.  For years now, I always have a light sweater jammed in my bag.  The one I have in there now I bought last year in a couple colors and thank goodness, ‘cause it doesn’t look like they have it anymore.  The Eden cardigan comes in lots of color choices though and looks perfectly practical and I really want that Dream Ribbed Yoga cardigan too.


On a final note, I’m loving the Caslon line of t-shirts at Nordstrom.  They fit well and wear beautifully.  Best of all they come in a huge variety of colors, necklines and sleeve lengths.

So…let’s see it.  Post your favorite back-to-school outfit!

(I wish I could say that Anthropologie, Caslon or J. Crew sent me a whole stack of stuff just to say I like it, but they didn’t.  Opinions and clothes budget provided solely by Activity Tailor)

    You must make more money than the average SLP.

    I just wanted to say thank you for posting a fashion-related SLP post. As a soon-to-be-graduated student, it is nice to find some tips for the real world in terms of fashion and not just therapy ideas. Any more tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
