STYLE: Work to Play

My time whilst at uni can grossly be split into two main areas - working, and dancing. As a medical student with the expectation of dressing professionally several days a week, I've never really fallen into the classic student trap of t-shirts and jogging bottoms - which is unfortunate sometimes, but does mean I put more effort into what I wear.

I usually don't have the time to change from smarter day wear into dance appropriate clothes, but it's never really been an issue; there's a lot of common ground between my vintage inspired work wardrobe and my 1940s swing looks, so changing up the accessories is all it takes. I've worn this look several times already to the new summer job I've just started (usually with a full vest underneath), and it's been a staple for dancing for ages now. Both the shoes and the shorts were found totally by chance in two separate sales, and the whole thing definitely nods towards my interests in the early 20th century without being too much for for the work environment.

Apologies for the slight lateness of this post - what with the post-dissertation crash and fresh employment, if I'm honest I'm feeling pretty wiped out right now. As great as it is to post weekly, I think a two week schedule is more reasonable for me - therefore, An Honest Drug will now be posting fortnightly.

How do you guys deal with work to play transitions? Have you found anything in the sales recently? Let me know below!



  1. That necklace is fabulous! The outfit is cool, unique and stylish! Swing dancing is awesome!

    1. Thank you! It's a really fun hobby.

  2. Swing dancers are certainly the most stylish of dancers!

    1. I know, right? Swing dance fashion is one of my passions, and I actually think it's quite an important part of the dance (though that's a contentious issue).

  3. Nice Outfit and I can immagine this is ok for both daytime and dancing!

  4. You're a medical professional.
    That's totally awwwsome.
    Thus, you can see, cant you,
    the difference between lifeNdeath?
    Life = upturned mouths.
    Death = horizontal mouths.
    If you dont or cant,
    I'd strongly suggest you follow us

    Love him, leave him or feel indifferent...
    you better listen to the Don:
    if you deny o'er-the-Hillary's evil,
    which most whorizontal demokrakkrs do,
    you cannot deny Hellfire
    which YOU send yourself to.

    God bless you, earthling.
