Workwear v Wednesday Adams
After working for almost three and a half years workwear has gone from "ooh, pretty grown up dresses because this is going to be just like 'Suits'" to "what can look decent after being shoved in my gym bag, still look decent after a twelve-hour day, and, most importantly, doesn't need dry cleaning or ironing?" Oh, to be a grown up!
I've had a bit of a workwear revamp lately because, while I may not be in Suits, I still want to look nice and despite sometimes bemoaning my "business casual" dress code (no, I'm not entirely sure what it means either), I do feel more ready for the day when I'm wearing something that's smart but also still "me". We have a monthly dress-down Friday and I just feel a little bit less productive in a skater dress and flats (and that's about as dressed down as I'm prepared to go). This dress makes me feel a bit Wednesday Adams - the cold weather can make even a die-hard lover of primary colours reach for the black - and a bit like a child going to a fifth birthday party. Pushing myself even further into real grown-up territory, I went back and bought it in navy too.
