Here on the blog, I've talked about Dansko scrubs, Cherokee scrubs, and my purple Dickies scrub top, to name a few. I was recently given the opportunity from Medical Scrubs Collection to try out a brand of scrubs that was completely new to me. Or maybe you've heard of Smitten? Before this, I hadn't.
The website says, "Designed for the hip, young nurse or medical professional, Smitten medical uniforms are designed with fashion forward style and detail." This sums it up nicely.
What I chose:
top: cross over knit contrast neck band top, navy, size small
bottom: seam front with side welt pocket, petite pant, navy, size x-small
My previous pair of navy scrubs were getting so well worn that the infamous crotch split was bound to happen any day now, so the fact that they carry mostly grays, blues, and blacks (with a few pinks scattered in) didn't bother me at all. I originally ordered the pants size small, regular length and they drowned me. I'm 5'6'' with a long torso and short legs. This gave me a chance to use their returns/exchange service and all it took was filling out one form, mailing them back, and my new pants showed up at my door. Simple and easy. This is the first time I've ordered petite pants over the regular ones but, for these particular pants, they work so much better.
I know a lot of my nursing friends out there are required to wear a certain color for the unit they work in. My hospital hasn't converted over to that (yet) but this would be a great option if you want a little pop of color while still complying with your dress code. :) Just saying.
The one thing I'd change about these scrubs is the drawstring part of the pants. It's the kind you have to tighten and hold with one finger while trying to tie a bow with the other hand... not the most user-friendly. But manageable. It's not stopping me from wearing them, that's for sure.Smitten to the list of favorites.

And if you're looking for other brands, this website has them all! I actually have my eye on this top (in all its star treky glory) and this one (those notches on the neckline are a nice detail I haven't seen before)!
