Writer's Block: Suits or Shorts

Do the clothes you wear to work or school reflect your personality, or are they a 'costume' to fit into the image of who your boss/colleagues/teachers expect you to be? What would you wear instead of 'the status quo' if it were up to you?


Because I work at SBUX I wear black all the time, even though we are allowed to wear white tops, beige pants, etc. Slinging coffee and frapuccino mixes around does not wash well on the lighter colours! I am suspicious that wearing black so consistently affects the moods of myself and my coworkers somewhat...but at least we have the green aprons.

This spring I am consciously trying to change this up and be a bit more thoughtful of what I wear to work and outside of work (not all days are "closet success" days, I admit). My MAC Viva Glam I blue-red lipstick has been my first foray into looking more polished. It seems to be working well since it gives me a feeling of being "presentable" not "schleppy" at work. Thanks for the inspiration, Gwen Stefani!

I empathize with the black uniform and feeling *eh* while at work. *hug* I am glad you are finding things to make you feel more put together.

It's a struggle is to feel put-together when you have little to work with. :)
