Default A look for me, a look for my business

For 20 odd years, and many were really odd, I wore my hippie uniform of tie dye and boho skirts, with a tiny collection of work clothes for the newspaper.

I'm a career changer into bodywork, and will have most clients in private practice.
I can't look like a yoga teacher, but I need about the same flexibility in movement. ( I do floor based shiatsu and Thai as a major portion of my work)
eventually, I'll add other therapists to the office, and I'd like to have a look that is somewhat uniform.

I don't want a spa uniform or scrubs.
I also don't want tshirts and yoga pants.

I'm also developing a look for who I am now.

I'm not power suit woman. I don't wear heels, and won't.
But, I don't see a middle between suit and workout wear.


Right now I use Thai fisherman pants and they are ideal in the treatment room.
That is what I keep for clients, too.
I need a top that works with them, and likely I'd just get six of the same.
I'd like to have 3/4 sleeves, or a slight bell that I can fold up to use my elbows.

I also need a look for presentations and networking events.

Help?

Could you wear pants that are stretchy (thinking a stretchy twill) so they have some give to them, but that shrink back to looking more like slacks? Or just generously-sized casual slacks? (generous in the hips and buns, I mean)

For the tops, what about...
http://www.modestclothing.com/cgi-bi...556&groupid=28 (a polo with 3/4 sleeves)
or
http://www.themodbod.com/products/Double-V-Tee (a Tee with V in back and front)
or
http://www.dillards.com/product/Sunn..._301_503092184 (peasant blouse too casual? I love the roominess of it, but bending over is dangerous)
or
http://www.victoriassecret.com/ss/Satellite?ProductID=1265724806257&c=Page&cid=13270 29226745&pagename=vsdWrapper (but not so "come hither" as this. Don't know what this style is called for sure, but something a little more 'discreet' would sure be comfy)

I'll keep looking. Peasant blouse isn't quite what I'm thinking, but it's in-between that and that last V-necked thing. Almost like what they wore in the 70s, the white muslin with white embroidery on it with a keyhole neckline. I'm sure you have seen them...

Kinda like this, but not quite so billowy: http://www.coldwatercreek.com/produc...d-blouses.aspx
maybe a little more like this: http://www.peacefulpeople.com/media/..._vents_1. jpg

Can I plan a trip to Idaho and go shopping with you?

I think I found the shirt. I can always vat dye for different colors.

I have to be careful of gap and gape, and some clients get weird if fabric touches them.
