Happy National Women Physician Day! Today marks the birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, the United States’ first woman physician. In 1849, Blackwell was accepted into medical school as a joke. While we have made great strides since then, the fight for equality still goes on. Read further to learn more about an amazing physician-to-be, my friend Tammarah.

The reason that I wanted to start a style blog in the first place was my love for thrifting. It became a hobby of mine when I started college and has been close to my heart ever since. This post has been a long time coming! Most of my friends know that I have a tendency to find ridiculously awesome pieces while thrifting, some of which I’ve already shared on my Instagram, while others have yet to make an appearance. Although I hand out ideas here and there, I have yet to compile my secrets for finding a great deal. Thanks to all of your pestering, I’m about to spill some piping hot tea, the first in a series of guides if you’re lucky.

I’m writing to you from my new apartment! Minus living essentials like floor lamps, a dining set, and anything to sit on or store clothes in, I guess you can say that I’m full-fledged adult now. I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog with a personal post, but I especially wanted to reach out to my fellow medical students with this one.
I think I’m still having a hard time adjusting to M2 year. I’m still grappling with the notion that others look up to me as a role model and ask me for advice when I’m just trying to do the right thing for me. It’s scary, it’s intimidating, but it’s inevitable. The “sophomore” year of any point in your education is tough. You’re no longer the baby, but you’re also asked to grow up quickly.

- How would you describe your style? – I would describe my style as very authentically “me”. I wouldn’t say I fit into one category. I love dressing up and I love having fun picking out my outfits and trying new things. Really, I just go with what I like and feel comfortable in, I don’t pay much attention to other’s opinions when it comes to my clothes. Clothes bring me a lot of happiness, and really my style goal is just to wear things that make me feel the most like my best self.
- What are your favorite brands? – My favorite brands currently are Abercrombie, J. Crew, and Express though I get most of my professional clothes from Calvin Klein. As far as shoes go, I love Steve Madden. Also, I’m kind of obsessed with Old Navy for basic things like t-shirts and tanks; they always have really good sales!
- Do you have any style tips you want to share? -Fashion and style are so subjective, but be yourself, love what you’re wearing, and do so with confidence. Also, details matter, little accessories can really make all the difference. Oh! And LIPSTICK!
- What has been your biggest style mistake? – The biggest style mistake I’ve made (and still currently make) is wearing ridiculously uncomfortable shoes because I really like the way they look. I’m obsessed with shoes and have more pairs than I’d like to admit, but my feet are not super thrilled with most of my choices. With all the blisters I constantly have, it’s safe to say a career as a foot model is definitely not in the cards for me.
