dressing for the weekend
January 29, 2011
As I was dressing this morning and packing for tomorrow I realized that if I ever want to wear jeans again I need to wear them on the weekend. While I know that I work in a casual work atmosphere I try very hard to always present a professional appearance these days because I never know who I’m going to find in my next meeting. And I want to look professional if I am across the table from a Vice Chancellor or Dean or Director.
Once upon a time I went to work in over large sweaters and flannel pajama pants. I am not that person anymore. I am also not the person who goes to work in v-necks sweaters, yoga pants and flip-flops.
I like the feeling I get from a professional appearance.
So while I’m still working on my personal style, I know that jeans in the office aren’t exactly what I’m going for. So if I want to wear them… it’s got to be on the weekend.
So here’s wishing you prime rib steaks and crispy fried ravioli from the homelands of Sacramento. I raise a glass of Zin to you all.
