These days I’ve been struggling with a clothing problem I think nearly all of us experience- How do I dress professionally for work, maintain my own style, and stay warm? The first two issues are a pain in the butt, add in layering and the possibility of snow boots and it really gets difficult.
Last week, I was breaking in my new corduroys at work. Not a big deal, except they give me plumber butt- so no appropriate for work! It would have been fine for sitting in my office all day, except my boss asked me to join a meeting at the last minute. A meeting with executives, potential donors, and her business contacts. And my demeanor illustrated my uneasiness at being in a room with smartly-dressed associates while my tattoo (and more) hung loose.
Cute, but not really work appropriate. And definitely ghetto booty tight. Uh huh.
I don’t really like it, but my job requires me to exude a certain level of professionalism. I hate business clothes, even business casual, but I have to wear it. So that means I have to learn to wear it while showing my personal style (whatever that is).
So here’s my attempt for today. Had to rock the high heels, because nothing makes me feel more in charge and confident than heels. Also, proper pants that cover my tattoo, bum cheeks and everything that needs to be covered. What do you think, lovely readers?
Cardigan- Rodarte for Target
Shirt- H&M (and it’s actually a knee-length dress!)
Boots- Report Signature
