Clothes envy

What I Wore to Work Today: Monday, July 30, 2012
Blouse: Ross
Pants: Goodwill, $1 Thursday
Shoes: Payless

At the grocery store on the way home, the clerk asked if I was on the way home from the office. “You look great, I wish I could dress like that every day at work,” she said wistfully.

The dress code at my office is business casual, with regular casual on Fridays when jeans, sneakers, and sports jerseys are acceptable. Or, you can pay $1 per day to the charity of the quarter and wear casual attire on regular days, too; on any given day maybe 1/3 of the office is wearing jeans. I’ve taken advantage of that once in the past 4 months.

like dressing up a bit for work. I enjoy feeling like a professional 30-year-old in the financial services industry. I also like not spending $20 each month for the privilege of wearing jeans. I could buy two Chipotle dinners, with chips and guacamole, for that amount!
