no accessories needed

easy work outfit - bow blouse and skinny pants I have always loved the idea of a pussy bow blouse - it's very Joan Harris meets menswear meets 'needs no accessories'. I picked this one up when it was on mega sale a few weeks ago - I got it for $16! It's definitely not the nicest shirt I've ever owned (it's a bit too big in the waist and the fabric is a bit shiny) but I think it will be great for wearing under a white coat the next few years. Because it comes with its own accessory, there isn't a lot of need for adding necklaces or scarves (things I won't be able to wear anyway). 

I'm starting to think a bit more about what items I need in my closet for clinical rotations, so for those of you going through it or have gone through them, any tips or tricks are appreciated! A few more work appropriate pants and comfortable shoes are in order for sure.
Blouse: Loft [exact - similar below]
Pants: The Limited [exact]
Watch: Michael Kors [save | exact]
Belt: Gap [very similar]
Shoes: Banana Republic [save | exact]
Bag: Kate Spade [similar]
and here are a couple of other cute and inexpensive bow blouses.  number two is definitely my favorite (it would go with literally everything, but especially my new midi skirt!)
