Basically, wear whatever you want to physical therapy. The staff are all in scrubs and sneakers, and the experience is far from posh (but so helpful). I like to dress up a bit on PT days, to stay cheery. And I enjoy my time with therapist Vanessa, even though I call her Nurse Ratched.
This simple black dress by COS (similar) was thrifted a year ago, and I’ve given it quite a workout. It’s built like a basic box, but I don’t mind forfeiting the waist on occasion. The dress is a great canvas for necklaces and scarves, and it’s machine washable – a beneficial feature because they do messy (but so helpful) things to you in physical therapy! My floral velvet booties (sim) add color, as does the splint-covering scarf (sim).
In just four weeks, I’ll have regained “reasonable” use of my right hand – full healing takes about a year. And now for fun and beauty, here are some fabulous outfits from the over-40 women of Visible Monday this week:
Tie your top: Gail of Is This Mutton looks modern and crisp in this striped ruffle shirt, with bold accessories. Love the leopard print bag and those checked shoes.
Mix a dressy jacket with your favorite straight jeans: Suzanne of Ask Suzanne Bell combines a classic tweed jacket – in the best Fall colors – with her denim. Check out the animal print clutch and fab block-heel mules.
Mix your colors and prints for a one-of-a-kind look: Sacramento of Mis Papelicos put together a duck-print skirt and a feminine pink floral blouse. It’s a magical outfit that captures her vibrant energy.
Stay fabulous, wear what you love every day, and enjoy every sandwich, xo
