FIGS Scrubs Review




Scrubs: Figs Technical Collection c/o: top: Casma, bottoms: Livingston // Figs Super Chill Vest c/o

I kept hearing about Figs scrubs on social media, and all I had heard was positive things.  Figs sent me a set to try, as well as THE BEST VEST ever!  The scrubs are SUPER soft.  Scrubs in general tend to be like wearing pajamas, but these are just amazingly smooth and comfy.  The technical collection is relaxed, and the pants do come in tall (which I need!).  You definitely need to try them!  For sizes, I would recommend going down a size in the tops (I'm usually an XS but would probably have fit better in an XXS), and going up a size for the pants (I'm usually between an XS and a S, but S would probably fit a bit better in the pants).  Now let me rave a  bit about this vest.  It's amazing.  I wore it all week in the ER and just love it, plus I received tons of compliments!  It's super soft and not overly heavy, but provides tons of pocket space and a little added core warmth.  I am always wearing either a fleece or a vest at work, and this is by far my new favorite!

The best thing about Figs is their Threads For Threads program:  they donate a pair of scrubs to a healthcare provider in need, often in low resource areas, for every pair purchased.  What a fantastic way to help!  Figs is kindly offering my readers, YOU ALL, a discount!  Use code KerriFIGS for 15% off your first purchase!

Choose Grace: Happy 2017!


Happy New Year, my friends!

I've had a lovely (and so needed) week off, even despite battling a bit of a cold.  And today, the first day of a new year, is my last day off before returning to the daily grind.  Last year I started writing down goals for the new year, concentrating on each area of life.  I am proud to say I accomplished many, although not all, of them.  This year, I made my goals a little more broad, realizing that I can accomplish something but it may not be exactly how I originally thought it would or should be.  Isn't that kind of how God works, though?  He opens doors, letting us walk, but may have a different plan than we thought.  This year, I'm faced with a lot of uncertainty.  There's a lot of big decisions that will need to be made.  But I was inspired to pick a "word" to be the theme of my new year.  And it's a word that played a great deal into my new blog name:  GRACE.  I'm asking that God give me grace in my interactions, my decisions, my hardships, my uncertainty.  I'm asking that He help me to see His grace in all areas of my life.  I'm asking that He give me grace in the disappointments.  I'm asking that He give me grace while seeking out joy in my life.  I'm also praying that this little blog can be a source of Grace.

So Happy 2017!  Let's give it to God, and see how He works.  I'm excited for this year in a way I don't think I have been before.

Winter Woodland Wonderland Dress



Woodland Print Crepe Ruffle Dress: eShakti // Necklace: J. Crew // Boots: Steve Madden // Watch: Kate Spade

Around Thanksgiving, I started looking for the perfect Winter dress.  Since I first discovered eShakti several years ago after they contacted me for a collaboration, they have been my go-to for unique, vintage-inspired and classic dresses.  I found this woodland print dress on the Black Friday sale, and adored it!  The little blue birds, rabbits, and deer mixed with floral patterns is so adorable and charming!  I wore the dress to our Christmas Eve service with the J. Crew Necklace I had purchased specifically for the occasion!

Merry Christmas!

 Merry Christmas, my blogging friends!

I'm cozying up for a fun and festive weekend with the people that mean the most to me.  So many sweets have been baked, and special preparations for a short Christmas Eve service at our church.  I can't wait!  I'm thankful for a chance to stop and enjoy.  I'm also excited for a new year and what it will hold.  My desire is that I seek God with all I have in the new year, watching and expecting Him to work in marvelous and miraculous ways.  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and remember the true reason for the season!  Check back for some exciting collaboration posts coming up (especially my medical friends!).  You won't want to miss them!
