Hi, I'm Franziska.

I'm a mid-twenties second year medical student documenting my way through the journey of becoming a physician. I started this blog when I was working for a pharmaceutical development company - my job required me to wear flat, closed toed shoes and pants, as well as a lab coat, so I used this blog to work on wearing outfits I liked, while staying within my budget and complying with my work regulations.

Now that I've traded in my lab coat for a white coat, I have a whole new set of clothing rules. My school has a dress code which means I must be dressed appropriately for both school and my future profession - I'm trying to still have fun with my wardrobe while living on student loans with little time for my favorite hobby.

for inquires, or just to chat, please email me at fhasselhof [@] gmail.com

  1. I found your blog on Shannon's and I ended up loving it! :) I love the story behind your clothes under the lab coat, I work in a professional office so I have to keep all my fun clothes stacked for the weekend! I'm definitely following on bloglovin now! :)

    Love,
    Evani

  3. I just found your blog through Audrey's. I also work in a lab and got stuck in the mentality of "I wear a labcoat all day, might as well wear jeans and a t-shirt." I'm actively fighting to change that thought process and I look forward to reading your blog! Glad I found it!

  10. Hi Franziska
    I'm a visitor coming over from Sue and what a find your blog is. I have questions because I'm so darn curious but will read on in your blog but have to ask, how many states will you be moving?

    You have such an easy style and look so comfortable in all you wear and I love to hear that even though your hands are in gloves all day you still paint your nails ;-).

    Also, love the spelling of your name and it reminds of my daughters friend whose name was the spelt the same way when we lived in Germany.

    Hope you're having a fabulous weekend ... hugs from down in Africa.

    1. Hi Wendy!

      I will be moving 4 states over - to Pennsylvania actually! The weather will be pretty similar so no break from the snow for me ;)

      and thank you - my family is originally from Germany (I was born there) which is why it is spelled like that :)

    1. Hi Erin! I'm so glad you finally came out of lurkdom to say hello :) I love Audrey's blog so I'm glad we can share a few awesome readers. Thank you so much for your kind words - they mean so much to me in times where I feel like I'm slowly sinking into the ground (aka right now haha)

  12. Hey Fran! I'm a fellow (4th yr) med student and I stumbled across your blog while taking a study break. I spent more time on here than I should (oops!) but I love your style and cute glasses. Good luck with school and your bf's match this March! (My bf and I are also in a long distance relationship and we're couples matching.)

  13. Hi Fran! Just stumbled across your blog and love it! Quick question....is the white Everlane t-shirt that you are wearing see-through enough to wear you need to wear a cami underneath? Couldn't tell from your pics!

    Thanks!

    1. I almost always wear tanks underneath my clothing, so I guess I've never tried to not wear a tank, but I think it might be a little too transparent to wear with just a bra? I think you could probably get away with a nude bra though. Whatever your comfort level is I suppose!

  14. Great blog! I found your blog from Laura's. I am Physical Therapist Assistant student and I've just started clinicals. I have to wear a lab coat, but all my rotations do not require scrubs...which I've been wearing for 4.5 years and own 2 months worth. I'm learning to play with my casual, yet professional wardrobe!

  15. Great blog! I am a Physical Therapist Assistant student and have recently started clinicals. I've been wearing scrubs for almost 5 years at my job, but in my last clinical, it was casual! I can't explain how excited I was about it! Lab coat with cute and stylish , yet professional clothes. Anyway, I love blogs from fellow students, especially in healthcare, and seeing how they balance school and life! I found your blog through Laura's :)

  16. Hi! I came across your blog on Bloglovin and I'm looking forward to following your posts! I was once on the med. school track. Well, I still am technically but I ventured off to pursue a master's degree first. Anyways, it's great to see a blog from a fellow student and I love your outfit posts! I wish you all the best :)

  17. I came on your blog, and I said.....SHE STOLE MY STYLE. lol. I enjoyed viewing your blog, it was inspiring and informative. I work in an office environment which limits our use of Jewelry. I find myself layering quite a bit and rather than ballet flats, I like slippers and loafers.

  19. Hey Franziska! I'm a fellow grad student (PsyD in Clinical Psychology) and I love your blog! It's so nice to find other bloggers who are still in school and working/studying like me. I also like that you admit to not always being so stylish, makes you more human and like me. ;P

  21. Hi Franziska!

    I'm so glad I happened upon your blog.

    I am a Medical Student as well and I found your blog via Pinterest under "What's in her bag".
    I can relate to trading the lab coat for a white coat :) I use to work in MN as an MLS before starting Medical School a year ago, and I am currently on the verge of launching my blog as a documentary for my journey through Medical School. I am inspired by your blog, and I love your style. It's simple, yet sophisticated.
