On Mondays I volunteer for Dress for Success, and get an opportunity to bust out my professional wear. Since I am putting women in suits for interviews, I think it is only appropriate that I at least look like I could be working in an office. I used to not really enjoy wearing “work” clothes, but now I really enjoy it. I also used to think that dressing appropriate for the office meant going against what I really liked to wear, but that isn’t necessarily true. You can still look like yourself in your work clothes. No, you can’t dress like you are going out on Saturday night, or wear pieces that are meant for a super casual Saturday, but you can still feel like yourself. While I wouldn’t wear this if I didn’t need to look professional, I do feel like it feels like me. Do you like dressing for work?
