Works for me Wednesday

Today's tip is for any of you who wear scrubs for your work. There are many people beside nurses who wear them. In our nursing home, the housekeeping staff, dietary aides and laundry staff all wear scrubs.
I love wearing scrubs. I remember having to wear a white uniform every day and scrubs are much more comfortable and easy to keep clean.
I recently ordered a set of scrubs from Blue Sky Scrubs. I ordered them on a Thursday afternoon, shortly before 5, and by 5:45 had confirmation that the order was ready for shipping. It was delivered to our house on Tuesday.
Instead of coming in a plastic bag, like other scrubs I've ordered, it came in this nice box, with an thank you card on top.


The company also included a complimentary scrub hat, which was nice, but I don't need to wear it in my position. However, if you work in OR, you would probably love it!
The scrubs are really comfortable and wash really nicely. They come our of the dryer looking like they have been freshly ironed!
The only change I would like to see is more pockets. I like to carry things with me and could use another pocket.
Other than that, they are wonderful and if you use scrubs, I would recommend that you check them out. Blue Sky Scrubs work for me!

I don't wear or use them, but I've always wondered if they're as comfy as they seem. Love what you picked out! : )

How nice that they take the time to package your purchase with such care and a thank you card....I'm so impressed!

I added you to my blogroll...have been meaning to do it sooner because I really enjoy your blog and all of your photos!!! :)

I don't wear them....but, I've been tempted to buy me a set for PJs!! Anyway, I'm with you there on the pocket dilemma. If I see something I like on the rack, and it doesn't have pockets...I don't buy. LOL

I have always wanted a lab coat with really big pockets for my brushes and stuff. I always check out the waiters coats when we are out to eat.

You'll look very nice in those brite scrubs! Why do you all have to wear them. Even in dental offices? Just a question I've always wonder.

Kat said...

Thanks Mari. I'll pass this on to our daughter.

Hugs!

Mari, I added the link to my online photography class to my post....sorry about that....I meant to add it before I published my post last night, but forgot. I also added a link to the Portrait Photography class that I will take after this one. You would really love the class and the teacher is awesome! I am learning so much and lovin' it.

What kind of camera do you have? Do you have a digital SLR?
